Acer Predator Triton 300 PT315 Laptop Review: A 120 Hz Panel Could Be Better

The next gamer with Comet Lake. The Acer Predator Triton 300 is yet another Gaming laptop upgraded with a Comet Lake CPU. At around $1,400 you get an up-to-date CPU, a 120 Hz panel, and an Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060. Find out how well this hardware performs in everyday use in our review.

Acer Predator Triton 300 PT315-52-79LP

Acer is known for an extensive notebook line-up that includes various gaming notebooks as well. Therefore, we have had numerous models in review in the past, such as for example the AMD-powered Acer Nitro 5. Intel’s Comet Lake is also not unknown to Acer, see for example the Acer Predator Triton 500 and Predator Helios 300.

Now, Acer has also upgraded its Predator Triton 300, which now features an Intel Core i7-10750HNvidia GeForce RTX 2060, 16 GB of RAM, and a 1 TB SSD. Specs can be found in the table below, and you can always add additional devices from our database underneath each category.

Case – Aluminum Gaming Notebook

The Acer Predator Triton 300 is made of aluminum. Accordingly, the device is very robust and premium, and we found no quality issues. Its beveled edges help to differentiate the Triton 300 from the square-edged designs of its competitors. Its display bezels are fairly narrow, which helps to reduce the overall width. The lid warped slightly when opened one-handed, and it opens to a maximum opening angle of around 135 degrees.

With its weight of 2.1 kg (4.6 lb) the Predator Triton 300 is on the lighter side for its class. In addition, it is slightly thinner than most of its competitors.

Connectivity – Triton 300 with Gigabit Ethernet and USB-C

The Predator Triton 300 features a variety of modern connectivity options, including a power supply port at the rear as well as a USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-C port. Unfortunately, it lacks a card reader.

Communication

Acer’s gaming notebook supports network connectivity via Gigabit Ethernet as well as Wi-Fi 6. When connected to our Netgear Nighthawk AX201 reference router the latter managed transfer rates of up to 1,380 Mbps (RX) and 1,220 Mbps (TX). This may sound plenty fast but keep in mind that some of its competitors managed higher Wi-Fi transfer speeds.

Webcam

The Triton 300’s webcam’s resolution is limited to the still fairly common yet very low 0.9 MP. Accordingly, its overall image quality is rather poor. Our test chart photo was blurry with washed out colors.

Input Devices – Gaming Notebook with RGB Backlight

Keyboard

Acer’s notebook keyboard offered a decent amount of support for our hands and fingers. Feedback is rather soft but still good enough to get a feeling for the keyboard’s accentuation point. Various clusters of keys, such as WASD, are highlighted with extra tactile feedback for easier recognizability. Additional individualization and customization can be achieved with the configurable four-zone RGB backlight. The colorful lightshow does not create any glare and its brightness can be adjusted in three stages.

Touchpad

Acer’s pointing device of choice for the Predator Triton 300 is a clickpad. It offered our fingertips a slightly elevated resistance rendering mouse pointer navigation somewhat arduous overall. Touch input was recognized well enough, and left mouse clicks were registered reliably with a nice and satisfying mechanical clunk. Right clicks, on the other hand, were answered with a very soft and spongy feedback.

Display – Poor Contrast Ratio and too Dim

The Predator Triton 300’s 15.6-inch IPS panel runs at a native resolution of 1920 x 1080 at a refresh rate of 120 Hz. Average brightness peaked at just 257 nits and thus lower than on its competitors. In return, its brightness distribution was a decent 89 % and therefore slightly better.

We found no evidence of PWM, which should benefit users with sensitive eyes.

* ... smaller is better

According to our tests the Triton 300’s IPS panel’s maximum contrast ratio was just 900:1 with a slightly raised black level of 0.31 nits. Accordingly, colors are not very clearly differentiated from one another and dark screen contents suffer from a gray haze. At just 59 % sRGB and 41 % AdobeRGB color space coverage was fairly low as well.

Out of the box we found a slightly elevated DeltaE 2000 deviation of 3.1, which we were able to lower to just 0.7 via calibration. As always, the resulting ICC profile can be found for download in the box above next to the screen brightness diagram.

The Acer Predator Triton 300 was only usable in shady places outdoors, courtesy of its comparatively low display brightness. At least its matte display prevented reflections reasonably well.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
20 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 9.6 ms rise
↘ 10.4 ms fall
The screen shows good response rates in our tests, but may be too slow for competitive gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 27 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (23.9 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
29.2 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 14.4 ms rise
↘ 14.8 ms fall
The screen shows relatively slow response rates in our tests and may be too slow for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 23 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (37.8 ms).

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM not detected

In comparison: 52 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 15366 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 2500000) Hz was measured.

Overall viewing angles were decent. The on-screen content remained well readable without visible distortions or shifts in color regardless of angle.

Performance – Comet Lake on a par with its Competitors

Acer upgraded the Predator Triton 300 to Intel’s current generation of Comet Lake CPUs. Paired with 16 GB of RAM and an Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 this makes for a decent gaming device for running current games. Other SKUs with differing RAM and storage levels as well as more powerful GPUs are available.

Processor

Our review unit was equipped with an Intel Core i7-10750H with six cores and clock speeds of between 2.6 and 5 GHz. How long a notebook can maintain these high clock speeds depends primarily on the device’s cooling system. With the fans set to “Auto” the Triton 300’s benchmark scores were slightly higher than on other notebooks reviewed by us with the exact same processor.

System Performance

In PCMark 10, a benchmark to assess overall system performance, the Triton 300 scored comparatively poorly overall, with the exception of the Essentials and Productivity segments of the benchmark in which it did very well. Subjectively, the Acer notebook felt very snappy and smooth. Applications launched quickly and file access was very fast.

Additional benchmarks for other notebooks can be found on our CPU benchmark list.

Gaming Performance

Thanks to its Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060, the Triton 300 can run modern games smoothly in FHD and high details. Depending on game we even managed frame rates north of 60 FPS. Its performance should be fast enough for future games as well, although those might eventually require lowered details or resolutions in order to run smoothly and consistently.

Additional performance data for other games can be found on our GPU gaming list.

When running our Witcher 3 loop we were able to determine that GPU performance does indeed drop a bit over long periods of sustained load. Considering that the selected fan profile “Auto” does leave some additional cooling potential go to waste we would not expect any limitations when gaming for long periods of time.
