Reviews for the Acer Predator Triton 900 PT917-71-76VT

Acer Predator Triton 900 review – the king of convertibles ft. RTX 2080
Source: Laptop Media English
There is one sentence that defines the Triton 900 perfectly – the best gaming laptop on the market yet. Nothing we’ve tested yet beats the RTX 2080 on this device. However, there is a lot more to it than just a brilliant performer. As we expect a lot more devices with the RTX 2080 on the market (or perhaps something interesting from AMD), design-wise there is nothing similar coming to the market soon. With that performance and hinge and DCI-P3 enabled monitor, the Triton 900 is a very good portable alternative to the Microsoft Surface Studio.

Comment

Model: I don’t remember exactly when, but there were times where some 21-inch models were on the market. The Triton 900 is just a 17.3-incher, but its size and performance reminds me of those times.

First of all, performance, hands down maybe one of the best gaming performances in the market. A full RTX 2080 in a laptop, not even a Max-Q model. At least it comes with a 4K screen, yay! But only 60 Hz. So, I am not sure if you can really enjoy games at this refresh rate.

I mean, is it really necessary? I don’t know. But at least you can experience 4K without; at least for the 99 % of the games on the market without any FPS drops. So what do you have to sacrifice in order to get this monster? No, not your first born. 4.4 kg is a lot. For sure, it will help you get in shape, but definitely mobility is not the focus here. The 330 W power brick, I guess, can be considered as real brick, but that is not my concern. Anyways, yes, performance, this is what we are after. Even though the device is heavy and really big, once on a desk, it is easy to operate.

RAM and Storage are easy to upgrade. But CPU and GPU are not upgradeable. But I don’t think you would need an update at least for the next 2-3 years. Considering the fact that there is nothing better than RTX 2080 on the market yet (besides the desktop version), you definitely wont be needing anything newer for a good time.

What else? Nothing really special. Just like every high-end gaming laptop, the Triton 900 is expensive. I mean very expensive. With its current price, it is almost possible to buy two RTX 2060 Max-Q gaming laptops. Then it all comes down to taste. Do you really need this much performance is the real question you need to ask yourself. For me, it sounds like an overkill. If the screen was 144 Hz, it would have been amazing. But, we don’t know if a 144 Hz 1080p version will be available. Is 4K really necessary?

Overall, if you want to have something that looks different and has best possible performance, the Triton 900 is your device. But it has a high price tag and it is very hard to carry around. Would I recommend buying it? Yes and no. Yes, because why not? As long as you have the money to spend. No, because I am not sure if you will ever need that much performance. This is not your everyday device to play CS:Go. So, if you are really planning to buy a Triton 900 with such config, you better be sure about where and why you are going to be needing it.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 (Laptop): High-End laptop graphics card based on the TU104 chip with 2,944 shaders and 8 GB GDDR6 VRAM. Compared to the desktop variant, the GPU is clocked lower. 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.
17.3":

This large display size is used for laptops which are mainly intended for an use on a desk.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

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

This weight is representative for typical laptops with a 14-16 inch display-diagonal.


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.


92%: There do not exist many models, which are rated better. The most ratings get ratings, which are a bit worse.
