Acer Predator Triton 500

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.

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).

Acer Predator Triton 500 Review: This thin and light laptop even has GeForce RTX
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

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.

80% [Review] Acer Predator Triton 500 – Svelte Gaming Goliath
Source: Hitech Century English
As it stands, the Predator Triton 500 is a premium notebook that is both good looking and powerful though it still pales to its better specced and pricier sibling with an eighth gen i7 processor and an RTX 2070 GPU. There’s a dearth of games that take full advantage of ray tracing and DLSS but it does help to future proof the Triton 500 to conceivably tackle games for the next few years down the line in a capable fashion. If you’re looking for one of the slimmest and lightest gaming notebooks with an NVIDIA RTX card, the Predator Triton 500 is well ahead of the pack.

70% The RTX 2060 Is The Sweet Spot For Price And Performance In Gaming Laptops Right Now
Source: The Verge English
The Triton 500 has a few annoyances that I wish it didn’t have, but none of them are bad enough to be deal-breakers. The webcam is particularly awful, there’s no Windows Hello login support, all of the ports are toward the middle of the computer instead of more conveniently positioned toward the back, and, worst of all, there’s an obnoxious racecar boot-up sound effect that plays when you turn the system on, which I haven’t figured out how to disable.

80% Acer Predator Triton 500 review
Source: Techradar English
If you’re looking for a portable gaming laptop that doesn’t pull any punches, the Acer Predator Triton 500 can keep up with the best of them. There are a couple of design flaws that hold it back from the upper end of the pantheon of gaming laptops, but it’s still worth your cash.
Positive: Excellent performance; compact size; attractive design; nice display; decent connectivity. Negative: Overheats while using; uncomfortable keyboard; no SD card reader.

Acer Predator Triton 900 PT917-71-76VT

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.

74% Acer Predator Triton 900 review: Who needs a crazy swiveling screen?
Source: Engadget English
Acer’s Predator Triton 900 makes a stunning first impression, but it’s not long before you realize its unique hinge isn’t that useful, and it’s way too expensive for what you get. It’s certainly a singular device, but one without much of a point.

65% Acer Predator Triton 900 Review: Weird Flex
Source: The Verge English
I applaud Acer for attempting to broaden the appeal of its gaming laptop by appealing to artists or really anyone who has loads of cash and wants a laptop with an interesting design. But, in doing so, the Predator Triton 900 is left halfway between meeting what die-hard gamers and artists want in a machine. It’s capable of a lot, but the caveats, small as they seem, are deal-breakers.

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.

Acer Predator Triton 500 PT515-51-71PZ

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.

Comment

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.


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

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.NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 (Laptop): Mid range to high end laptop graphics card based on the Turing architecture with raytracing features and 1,920 shaders. Compared to the similar named desktop card it offers reduced clock rates.NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 (Laptop): High-End laptop graphics card based on the TU104 chip with 2,944 shaders and 8 GB GDDR6 VRAM.

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.
