Reviews for the Acer Predator Triton 500

86.5% Acer Predator Triton 500 (i7-8750H, RTX 2080 Max-Q) Laptop Review | Notebookcheck
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 Predator Triton 500 review - A well thought out high spec gaming laptop
Source: Tech Nave English
For a gaming laptop at RM8699, the Triton 500 is developed in such a way, that is it well balanced in terms of design and functionality. It is more than capable of handling almost any task you throw at it, from general productivity work to hardcore gaming. I'd say the only thing that's lacking in this beautiful package are good speakers, as the current ones are too mediocre. But personally, with specs such as these, I’d say that the Triton 500 offers a good value for its price and the only other direct competitor with similar specs, would be the ASUS Strix II for the price of RM8999 which is slightly more expensive.

Acer Predator Triton 500 – Review-in-progress
Source: Trusted Reviews English
With its asking price of under two grand, the Predator Triton 500 is strong value for money for demanding gamers who need a genuinely portable device. While the lack of a dedicated 4K display is a shame considering that muscular GPU, an Ultra HD panel would have jacked up that cost – and at least you can sort that out with an external screen (or three).

Source: PC World English
Acer’s Predator Triton 500 is a well-equipped gaming laptop we’d actually want to carry around. It's thin and light for its class, and its Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 GPU will help you forget the mild shortcomings of its 8th-gen Core i7 CPU.

Source: Good Gear Guide English
So where does the Predator Triton 500 land? At $1,800 for the version here, it’s decently priced. We say that because we know some will want to compare the Predator Triton 500 to other laptops with the same or slightly better components, and a similar or smaller price. We’d bet a box of donuts those laptops are generally bulkier, though.

Acer Predator Triton 500 Review: Phenomenal Cosmic Power, Itty-Bitty Chassis
Source: Unbox English
The Acer Predator Triton 500 is an amazing machine. It looks good and gaming on it is just fantastic with the combination of what’s under the hood and what you’re going to be experiencing those games on. There are a few compromises that you have to make, such as the loud exhaust system and the mediocre speakers but those things are easy enough to sidestep.

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 a 15-inch thin-and-light with powerful specs throughout 2019. The mid-level RTX 2060 and 2070 Max-Q configurations will offer better value for your buck, but that’s something we’ll cover in a different article.

Acer Predator Triton 500 review – thin and light RTX 2080 Max-Q beast
Source: Laptop Media English
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.

Comment

Model: The Acer Predator Triton 500 is a high-end gaming laptop. Infused with an 8th generation i7 processor and a GeForce RTX 2080 with Max-Q Design, this laptop was forged to obliterate games, empower creativity and inspire envy from friends and family alike. Covered in abyssal black metal, we designed the Triton 500 with a purpose, which is to allow users to game, whenever, wherever, as users please. And when the LED-lit Predator-emblazoned cover flares into life, it will act as a reminder that this isn’t a typical gaming laptop. Weighing 2.1 kg, the Acer Predator Triton 500 is a light travel companion. Speed is at the core of this laptop with the display leading the charge. Acer chose a 144 Hz panel with a 3 ms overdrive response time. Farewell blur and hello clear, crisp high-octane gameplay. Users can also go on and hook up a few extra displays via the ports through HDMI 2.0, Mini DisplayPort (mDP) or USB-C Thunderbolt 3. Including the laptop screen, that’s a total of four displays play around with. Residing within the metallic shell are the six-core 8th Gen Intel Core i7-8750H hexacore processor, a GeForce RTX 2080 with Max-Q Design and 8 GB GDDR6, up to 32 GB of DDR4 memory at 2,666 MHz and two 512 GB PCIe NVMe SSDs in Raid 0. It delivers great performance that craves real challenges. GeForce RTX gaming laptops are powered by the NVIDIA Turing GPU architecture and the ground-breaking NVIDIA RTX platform.

All Predator laptops utilize Acer’s custom-engineered cooling technology. The latest generation’s new design reduces noise while increasing airflow, allowing users to maximize the performance no matter the task. Inspired by silent, powerful owl flight mechanics Acer gave their fans a serrated edge, allowing more air to pass through. It has 59 blades, which are just 0.1 mm thick and all-metal with a stabilizing dual indent groove. There are winglets along the top and bottom fan edge and a curved fin along the inner blade to further reduce turbulence. The 3-zone RGB customized keyboard uses Acer's own Predator typeface, has see-through concave-shaped keycaps for WASD and features two integral keys to take note of: Turbo and PredatorSense. User can tap Turbo for instant overclocking or hit PredatorSense to open the utility app. With Killer’s E3000 Ethernet Controller, Wireless-AC 1550 and Killer Control Center 2.0, users have all the tools they need to clear out the online competition, keep their ping low and 100% optimized. As a conclusion, the Acer Predator Triton 500 is an excellent gaming laptop. Although it does not feature per-key RGB backlighting on the keyboard, which is somewhat the current trend, it has hit a balance between cost, appearance and performance in a slim form factor, which makes it a great contestant in the gaming laptop market.

NVIDIA 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.
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.


83.68%: 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.
