Acer Predator Helios 300 PH315-53 in review: Fast gaming machine with extra performance
The Predator Helios 300 brings all modern computer games smoothly onto the matte screen (Full HD, IPS, 144 Hz). Since Acer only uses one RAM module, memory runs in single-channel mode.

With the Predator Helios 300, Acer delivers a gaming laptop in the 15.6-inch format. For the chassis of the Helios, the company relies on a material mix of metal (top of the base unit and back of the lid) and plastic (all remaining components). The case is almost completely matte black. The exceptions are the silver-colored bases of the rear air vents. The illuminated Predator logo on the back of the lid and a few subtle blue highlights on the keyboard also set color accents.

The laptop is powered by a Core i7-10750H processor and a GeForce RTX 2060 graphics core. Together, these components bring all the latest games smoothly onto the screen of the Helios 300. Full HD resolution and high to maximum quality settings can usually be selected. The GPU performance can be increased if necessary thanks to automatic overclocking.

Some games achieve significantly lower refresh rates at low resolutions and low quality settings than on comparably equipped laptops. The reason: Acer only installed one RAM module in the test device provided to us. In other words: Memory runs in single-channel mode. Therefore, it's recommended to install a second memory module so as to activate dual-channel mode. The latter makes optimal use of the hardware.

The laptop has space for a total of two NVMe SSDs in the M.2 2280 format. If both M.2 slots are equipped with corresponding SSDs, these could form a RAID 0 array if required.

Further information as well as many benchmark results can be found in our review of the Acer Predator Helios 300 PH315-53-77N5.

What started as a side job during my computer science studies later became my main job: For more than 20 years now I have been working as an editor and author in the IT sector. While working in the print sector I also contributed to the creation of various loose-leaf publications and published original written pieces. I have been working for Notebookcheck since 2012.

I've been fascinated with technology ever since I got my very first Android smartphone, which was quite a while ago. The power packed into such a small footprint still amazes me. Learning to program made my understanding of technology deeper, and at the same time, it expanded my interest to the area of desktop computers and laptops. All this led me to enjoy reading and watching reviews of new devices, and that's how I stumbled upon Notebookcheck. I immediately found their reviews to be very comprehensive, and luckily, I've even had the chance of translating them since 2019. When it comes to the huge field of technology, I'm currently also interested in specializing in Java programming.
