Reviews for the Acer Predator Triton 500
With the Predator Triton 500, Acer presents an extremely compact gaming notebook that offers powerful components despite its small dimensions. In addition to an Intel hexa-core processor, Nvidia's brand-new GeForce RTX 2080 Max-Q high-end GPU is also flexing its muscles.

Acer have brought their Triton 500 notebook just on time. With the whole laptop world slowly converting to low profile, lightweight, monstrously powered devices. Being the first laptop with RTX 2080 Max-Q we tested, we were very excited about this product. However, the expectations weren’t that high. We just think that it’s not yet time for full-blown ultrabooks that can be as usable as an Alienware 15 R5 for instance.

All in all the Acer Predator Triton 500 is not perfect, but it does well what it’s primarily meant to, and thus should definitely be on your list if shopping for 15-inch thin-and-light with powerful specs throughout 2019. The mid-level RTX 2060 and 2070 Max-Q configurations might actually offer better value for your buck, but that’s something we’ll cover in a different article.

CommentNVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Max-Q: High-End laptop graphics card based on the TU104 chip with 2,944 shaders and 8 GB GDDR6 VRAM. Runs at reduced clock speeds compared to a laptop RTX 2080 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.
8750H: On Coffee Lake architecture based processor for big and heavy laptops. Integrates six processor cores clocked at 2.2 - 4.1 GHz (4 GHz with 4 cores, 3.9 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.
