The new version of the Acer Predator 500 is the first laptop in our editorial department with Nvidia's freshest high-end GPU, the GeForce RTX 2080 Super. More precisely, the energy-efficient Max-Q edition.

Just so you know: You shouldn't expect a big performance boost from the Super GPUs. As our review of the Predator Triton 500 showed, the GeForce RTX 2080 Super Max-Q often only sprints past its predecessor in a marginal way. No wonder, as the technical changes and improvements are rather limited. The same applies to the CPU: Since Intel continues to rely on the 14 nm process, the Comet Lake generation can only set itself apart from the Coffee Lake architecture to a limited extent. With the Core i7-10750H, the Triton 500 offers a hexa-core processor once again. One of the most important purchase arguments is the fast 300 Hz display.

Otherwise, the 15-inch gaming machine inherits the strengths and weaknesses of its predecessor. Thanks to the low weight and the compact design, the case can be transported well, but the slim look comes at the expense of noise development, as usual. Like most high-end laptops, the Triton 500 clearly draws attention under load.

All other advantages and disadvantages can be found in our review.

Growing up with MS-DOS and Windows 3.1 in the early 90s, I discovered my interest in computers in my childhood. Especially computer games radiated a great fascination for me even then. From Monkey Island to Lands of Lore to Doom, everything was gambled that you could get your hands on. I have been working for Notebookcheck since 2009 with focus on high-performance gaming notebooks.
