CES 2021 | Acer Predator Triton 300 SE launched with a 11th-generation Intel Tiger Lake CPU, RTX 3060 Max-Q, 144Hz screen, and more
At CES 2021, the Acer Predator Triton 300 SE has received a facelift, complete with the newest Intel Tiger Lake CPUs and Nvidia GeForce RTX 3000 series graphics cards. It has been launched alongside the better-specced Acer Predator Helios 300. Acer has stated that the Acer Predator Triton 300 SE will be available for purchase in March 2021. Prices are expected to start at €1,399 (US$1,700) for the base variant.
The Acer Predator Triton 300 SE comes with Intel's newest high-power 35 W Tiger Lake-H processors, up to the Intel Core i7-11375H. Acer claims that it can hit 5GHz with relative ease, thanks to the upgraded Predator AeroBlade fans. The new cooling system is reportedly up to 10 per cent more efficient than its predecessor. Things get a tad disappointing on the GPU side of things, as it comes with an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 Max-Q. One has to look towards the Predator Helios 300 for a better graphics card. Information about the notebook's RAM and memory configuration will be revealed at a later date.
Moving on to the display side of things, the Acer Predator Triton 300 SE comes with a 14-inch FHD panel clocked at 144Hz. Up to 10 hours of battery life is promised, but that number will go down significantly under heavy gaming loads. Connectivity options are a tad lacking on the Acer Predator Triton 300 SE. It comes with two USB Type-A ports, one Thunderbolt 4.0 port, one USB Type-C port, and one HDMI 2.1 port. On the wireless side of things, there's Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.0.
Since the Acer Predator Triton 300 SE is a gaming laptop, it comes with several gamer-specific features such as a 3-zone RGB keyboard, a PredatorSense software which can be used to controls fan speeds in real-time and a 'Turbo' button. However, Acer has kept the Predator Triton 300 SE's gamer-y aesthetic on the down low.
