The 15-inch Acer Predator Triton 300 is now also available with Comet Lake processor. The price remains low, which is reflected in some of its connectivity.

By adding an Intel Core i7-10750H Acer puts the Triton 300 on par with its competitors. Paired with 16 GB of RAM, a 1 TB large SSD, and last but not least Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 2060 GPU it turns into an up-to-date gaming notebook.

Despite its relatively low price of around $1,400 at the time of writing the Acer notebook features a case made entirely of aluminum and a design that differentiates itself from its competitors. Only the display lid could have been more robust as it flexes and warps noticeably when opening the lid.

The Triton 300 offers very good maintenance options with access to the secondary unpopulated SSD slot, both RAM slots, and the Wi-Fi module underneath the easily removable bottom cover.

It offers decent performance thanks to its built-in hardware. It is capable of maintaining performance during long-term gaming sessions or demanding applications assuming that users are willing to actively tinker with its fan management settings. By leaving it on full auto mode temperature will rise significantly over time.

However, tinkering with the fan settings can result in significantly increased noise emissions. Depending on configuration the Acer Predator Triton 300 can get very loud indeed. Users will need to find their perfect balance between performance and noise. Find out what else the Acer Predator Triton 300 has to offer in our extensive review.
