Acer Predator Triton 300: 15.6-inch gaming laptop gets an Intel Comet Lake-H and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 Max-Q refresh, along with a 240 Hz refresh-rate display
The Acer Predator Triton 300 has received a refresh. Now called the PT315-52, the 15.6-inch gaming laptop is visually indistinguishable from last year's model. However, Acer has upgraded the internals of this year's Triton 300, with three additional heat pipes to complement the device's dual-fan cooling system. The device now comes with a 240 Hz and 1080p display too, an upgrade on the 144 Hz refresh rate that last year's model has. The display remains an IPS panel with 3 ms response times and a 300 nit peak brightness, though.
The Triton 300 PT315-52 can be equipped with either a Core i5-10300H or Core i7-10750H processor, along with up to 16 GB of LPDDR4 RAM. The latter is not soldered on, so it can be upgraded to 32 GB using two SO-DIMM modules if needs be. Acer also offers a choice between four GPUs. While the company continues to offer the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060, it now also sells an RTX 2070 Max-Q model. Additionally, the GTX 1650 models of last year have been replaced by GTX 1650 Ti and GTX 1660 Ti SKUs. The new Triton 300 supports three M.2 SSDs too, although only one using PCIe.
The Acer Triton 300 PT315-52 is 19.9 mm (0.78-inches) thick and weighs 2.1 kg (4.63 lbs). The device will go on sale next month in EMEA from €1,399. US customers must wait until September before the Acer Triton 300 PT315-52 becomes available to purchase, where it will cost US$1,299.99.
