Model: On a tight and scaled expenditure, the search for a decent gaming laptop can be an experience filled with vast choices that are riddled with confusion and perplexity. Acer stepped in just as much as the other competitors do in order to provide a selection of gaming laptop models that are bound to meet their audience’s needs in one way or another. The Acer Predator Triton 500 is one of the latest installments by Acer as a budget-friendly gaming laptop model for those who aspire to start their PC gaming experience or just a potential replacement for what there once was.

The Acer Predator Triton 500 is imbued with complimentary core components that are optimized for gameplay experience. The 8th generation Intel i7-9750H makes yet another appearance in this particular laptop model. The i7-9750H’s recurring integration in most laptop models justifies its capabilities in achieving stellar speed when it comes to overall performance rate. The Intel i7-9750H has been vastly known to record a performance cap between 2.6 GHz and could potentially peak at 4.5 GHz upon the activation of Turbo Mode. Acer makes a valid point with the Acer Predator Triton 500 by pairing this powerful processor unit with a graphics card which can amplify overall performance to the next stage. The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 is the graphics card of choice when it comes to creating a powerful combination of components within the Acer Predator Triton 500. The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 may not perform the best as it could compared to its higher tiered sibling which is the RTX 2080 graphics card. It can still achieve a similarly impressive outcome when it comes to rendering in-game graphics to a whole new level of thematic realism. The RTX 2060 is ranked to be effective in speed as well as value at the current tier that it currently sits in.

The Acer Predator Triton 500 boasts a physical design which isn’t exactly the most dubious of sorts nor is it awe-inspiring to say the least. With a cool-toned blue accent on a mundane black surface, not much can be said about the Acer Predator Triton 500 aside from the fact that its physique does resemble one such of a gaming laptop much like any other that are currently drifting about in the scene. The blue keyboard backlight is a creative move-away from the classic red or green. Though admittedly, the overall design of the Acer Predator Triton 500 in general is considered to be well thought out and balanced in the sense that it does fit in the mold for being a budget-friendly gaming laptop model.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 Max-Q: High-End laptop graphics card based on the TU106 chip with 2,304 shaders and 8 GB GDDR6 VRAM. Offers reduced clock speeds to achieve a much lower power consumption.

These graphics cards are able to play the latest and most demanding games in high resolutions and full detail settings with enabled Anti-Aliasing.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.

Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  

9750H: On Coffee Lake architecture based processor for big and heavy laptops. Integrates six processor cores clocked at 2.6 - 4.5 GHz (4 GHz with 6 cores) that support HyperThreading. Manufactured in an improved 14nm process (14nm++). » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.

15.6":

15-16 inch is a standard display size for laptops and offers the biggest variety of products.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.

2.144 kg:

Usually subnotebooks, ultrabooks and quite lightweight laptops with 12-16 inch display-diagonal weigh as much.


Acer: The company was founded under the name of Multitech in Taiwan in 1976 and renamed to Acer or Acer Group in 1987. The product range includes, for example, laptops, tablets, smartphones, desktops, monitors and televisions. Gateway Inc. and Packard Bell also belong to the Group and sell their own laptops.

While Acer still had the third largest global market share in the notebook segment in 2008, it ranked 6th in 2016 with a market share of 6% after they had continuously lost market shares.

There are dozens of Acer laptop reviews per month, the ratings are average (as of 2016). Gateway, which has an own laptop line-up, has also belonged to the Acer Group since 2007.


84.7%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
