Acer Predator Triton 500 SE review: Slim gaming laptop with RTX 3080 Ti and Alder Lake

Expensive fun. Gaming laptops are often thick bricks - but not so the Acer Predator Triton 500 SE. With a relatively slim aluminum case, the Taiwanese manufacturer attacks known competitors such as the Razer Blade 17. Our detailed test reveals whether this attempt is crowned by success.

Acer advertises the Predator Triton 500 SE as a "slim gaming laptop." If looking at the relative size, there are of course laptops that are significantly thicker. However, at about 20 mm (~0.8 in), the Acer Predator Triton 500 SE is not extremely thin in absolute terms. But whether you would like to see an even slimmer size is another question, since Acer still has to somehow cool all the power components in the 16-inch 16:10 format, which is becoming increasingly popular. In addition to the 45-Watt Intel Core i7-12700H processor from the newest Alder Lake series, our test unit also houses an Nvidia GeForce 3080 Ti.

This combination promises gaming in the highest quality. But our detailed review will find out whether it also leads to a good laptop.

Case: Acer laptop in aluminum case design with lots of gray

Acer Predator Triton 500 SE
Acer Predator Triton 500 SE

The Acer Predator Triton 500 SE has a rather subdued design for a gaming laptop, and the exterior of the dark gray case doesn't reveal much about its purpose. The only things that point towards gaming are the Predator logos on the display lid and frame, and the keyboard illumination that is blue by default might also attract some attention. In terms of gaming-specific design details, there are also the Turbo key above the keyboard on the left and the distinctive fan vents on the back that are clear signs of a powerful performance. A design feature that provides some ergonomic comfort is the rounded front edge of the palm rest.

The case is made almost completely from aluminum. Only the display frame is made of plastic. This choice of materials contributes to the robustness of the case. The base can hardly be warped and also not pressed in. The only area where you can do that is the spot between the keyboard and touchpad, and then only if you use a lot of force. So you don't have to worry about the stability of the keyboard. What is less robust is the display lid, since the display can already be warped using only little force. But at least the back of the display lid also has good haptic qualities, just like the bottom of the case.

It is very nice that the display can be opened to an almost 180-degree opening angle. The fact that the Acer laptop can be opened with one hand is another positive point. The two hinges that are fixed on the base are well-adjusted, only allowing for some slight wobbling of the display after it is moved. 

For a gaming laptop, the Acer Predator Triton 500SE is in fact slim, and only the Razer Blade 17 can compete in this regard, being just as slim. However, that is also significantly wider with its 17.3-inch display in the 16:9 format. While the MSI GE76 Raider is also significantly larger, the Lenovo Legion 5 Pro 16 has a similar footprint, but that is also thicker.

In terms of weight, the Acer Predator Triton 500 SE is the clear winner. At only 2.3 kg (~5 lb), it is clearly the lightweight among the gaming laptops in our comparison.

Equipment: The Predator Triton 500 SE impresses with 2.5 Gbit Ethernet

The connection equipment is impressive. There is practically everything you might need these days. In addition to HDMI and two USB-A ports, the Acer Predator Triton 500 SE also offers RJ45 Ethernet and a full-size SD card reader. Another positive point is the fact that the connections are distributed over the two sides. On the other hand, the position of the proprietary charging port in the center is less than ideal, and we would have preferred if this connection was positioned further in the back.

SD Card Reader

Since SD cards cannot be inserted fully into the card reader on the right side, it is not suited for usage as permanent storage expansion. As measured with the AV Pro V60 storage card, the SD card reader performance in the benchmarks is average.

Communication

In addition to the RJ45 connection, which is a 2.5 Gigabit Ethernet port, the Acer Predator Triton 500 SE offers a Wi-Fi module of the most current generation. The Killer AX1675 is a 2x2 card with Wi-Fi 6E.

In our benchmarks that are limited to Wi-Fi 6, the card delivers up to 1664 Mbit/s. The absolutely stable performance while receiving stands out. On the other hand, the performance varies while sending data.

Webcam

The display frame above the screen contains a webcam with a resolution of 2 Megapixels. While its image is better than those of typical 720p webcams, it is still far from the quality of a selfie camera in a smartphone.

Accessories

Besides the 230-Watt power supply with a proprietary connector, there are no additional included accessories.

Maintenance

In order to access the components inside the Acer laptop, you first have to remove 8 Torx screws at the bottom of the case. The bottom plate is also secured by additional clips that are best loosened carefully with a plastic prying tool. To do that, the Ethernet port offers itself as a place to start. You only need to open the plastic clips on the sides and in front, and the clips on the back will then automatically loosen when you remove the bottom plate.

However, you might as well save the effort, since you don't really have a lot of options in changing the inside components of the Acer Predator Triton 500 SE. The working memory is soldered in, and the SSD cannot be accessed without first removing the mainboard. But at least you can replace the battery, and the fans are also accessible for cleaning.

Warranty

The Acer Predator Triton 500 SE is offered with two years of pickup & return warranty. So in the case of a defect, the Acer laptop is being picked up and repaired in a repair shop.

Input Devices: Acer Predator offers a good touchpad

Keyboard

Acer uses a keyboard in the chiclet style and a layout with six key rows. Interestingly, Acer forgoes adding a number block in the Predator Triton 500 SE as we usually see in larger laptops. This also means that the keyboard is placed in the center of the case, which is ergonomically comfortable. Another positive point are the regular-size arrow keys. On the other hand, the right Shift key has to be smaller to allow for this, which is annoying when you are trying to use it. The special keys to the right of the Enter key are also unusual. Since the rest of the keyboard turns out slightly smaller because of them, this can also become a cause of more frequent typing errors.   

We estimate that the black keys offer a stroke of about 1.5 mm (~0.06 in). The typing experience is good, and the keys offer a comfortable pressure point and resistance, without feeling spongy. While the typing experience is not the absolute top of the line, it is still sufficient for everyday typing tasks.

We should mention the background illumination as a relevant special function. By default, it is blue throughout, and it can be adjusted in four steps. Using the preinstalled PredatorSense software, the colors can be adjusted very freely, and you can also activate various effects such as a slow blinking or a wave effect in rainbow colors.

Touchpad

The touchpad of the Acer Predator measures 12.5 x 8 cm (~4.9 x 3.15 in), which is quite a massive size. The surface is smooth but not slippery. Thanks to its good sliding characteristics, the mouse pointer can be controlled without any effort, and the software implementation is also accurate.

The touchpad is a ClickPad, and correspondingly, you can press down on the surface at the bottom area. The mechanics are quiet, and clicks have a clearly defined pressure point. This is a high-quality implementation.

The Acer Predator Triton 500 SE is always equipped with the same display: a 16-inch IPS LCD in the 16:10 format that offers a resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels (QHD and 2.5k). Acer does not offer a 4K UHD display in this laptop.

On the other hand, the panel used here also offers some other advantages such as the high brightness, for example. Acer specifies 500 cd/m², and this is also the top value we measure. The panel has a 468 cd/m² average brightness, which is particularly due to the brightness decreasing significantly at the bottom edge of the display. However, there is no visible shading that can be noticed with the bare eye. In this regard, only the Lenovo Legion 5 Pro is able to keep up with the Acer Predator in our direct comparison.

The response times of the display also turn out very good. In addition, the display offers a refresh rate of 240 Hz, which makes movements look absolutely smooth.

In the state of delivery, the color temperature of the display is slightly too cold, as we measured with the CalMan and the X-Rite i1 Pro 2 Colorimeter. However, this can be remedied by a calibration with the X-Rite i1 Profiler. After the calibration, the color reproduction is fairly accurate. As usual, the color profile we created is available for your free download.

According to Acer, the display is able to cover 100% of the small sRGB color space. Our measurements also confirm this and even more: the display is also able to cover the DCI-P3 color space almost completely. This also makes the Acer Predator Triton 500 SE suited for simple image and video processing.

Because the display offers a matte surface in combination with a high brightness, it is also excellently suited for outdoor usage.

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
6.4 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 1.8 ms rise
↘ 4.6 ms fall
The screen shows very fast response rates in our tests and should be very well suited for fast-paced gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.4 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 11 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (23.1 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
13.8 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 6.3 ms rise
↘ 7.5 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 0.25 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 16 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (36.5 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 19947 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

Test Conditions

There are various performance modes that you can adjust via the "PredatorSense" software: Silent, Standard, Extreme, and Turbo, with the latter forcing the fan to run constantly at maximum noise level. Our performance tests were run with the Extreme mode, which results in a power limit of 115 watts as the top performance and a constant consumption of 95 watts for the CPU.

Processor

The Intel Core i7-12700H is a processor with a total of 14 cores. Six of them are "large" Performance cores and eight are "small" Efficiency cores according to the hybrid structure of the Alder Lake architecture. The P cores have a maximum clock speed of 4.7 GHz (basic clock speed: 2.4 GHz), and the maximum of the E cores is 3.5 GHz (1.8 GHz). As part of the Alder Lake H series, the i7-12700H has a TDP of 45 watts, with Intel specifying a maximum consumption of 115 watts. You can find additional information and extensive benchmarks in our CPU comparison list.

Acer is able to get a lot of performance from the relatively slim case, and the Razer Blade 17 can clearly be surpassed in the multicore constant performance, while its i7-12800H is only better in the single-core performance. On the other hand, compared to the significantly thicker gaming laptops from Lenovo and MSI, the Acer Predator Triton 500 SE has a disadvantage.

In battery operation, the laptop automatically switches to the Standard performance mode and the faster modes are unavailable. But the performance is also limited additionally, and while the Standard mode allows for a constant consumption of 80 watts during mains operation, it is only 35 watts in battery operation. In the CPU-heavy 3DMark 11 Physics Score, it only achieves 9,142 points in battery operation, instead of 24,020 points (minus 62%).

Graphics Card

GPU-Z Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 Ti
GPU-Z Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 Ti

The Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 Ti is one of the most powerful mobile GPUs from Nvidia. The 7,424 shader units should be provided with a consumption of up to 165 watts, allowing the GPU to achieve clock speeds of up to 1.59 GHz. You can find out about additional comparisons with other graphics chips in our GPU list.

Unfortunately, the graphics chip isn't able to make use of its full potential in the Acer Predator Triton 500SE. Instead of the full 165 watts, we only see a consumption of 115 watts. With this, the Acer laptop performs worse than the competitors with the same GPU, and the Razer Blade 17 and MSI GE76 Raider are 14 and 24% faster respectively. The Lenovo Legion 5 Pro with its nominally worse GeForce RTX 3070 Ti is also about 8% faster on average.

Like the CPU, the GPU is also clearly throttled without a connected power supply. In the 3DMark 11 GPU Score, the result turns out about 81% worse at only 6,900 instead of 37,288 points - a massive performance drop in battery operation.
