Acer's Predator Triton gaming laptops step up a level

Acer's Predator Triton 900 is a $4,000 gaming laptop with a crazy hinge

While the Predator Triton 900 places emphasis on the combination of performance and the convertible-features, the Acer Predator Triton 500 combines performance with mobility. Specifically, the Triton 900 includes Intel's 8th-generation Core i7 processor with six cores, 16GB RAM and 1TB of SSD storage space.

According to Acer, display mode is designed "for sharing the screen with friends during gaming sessions", the "Ezel mode" takes advantage of the screen's touch capabilities, "notebook mode" is for "traditional gaming scenarios", and a "stand mode " turns the Triton into " a tablet for gaming or using creator tools".

Understanding that not everyone is going to be into such an exotic (and expensive) gaming laptop, Acer also announced the Predator Triton 500 at CES. The Predator Triton 900, which was first unveiled at IFA 2018, is a 2-in-1 laptop with a CNC-machined hinge that that flips, extends, or reclines the 17-inch 4K display. That's balanced out by NVIDIA's new RTX 2080 chip for laptops, with 8GB of GDDR6 VRAM. An RTX 2060 or RTX 2080 with Max-Q design, the same Core i7-8750H processor, two 512GB PCIe SSDs in RAID 0, and up to 32GB of memory are available. The Predator Triton 500 is the thinner of the two systems at 17.9mm, and it weighs just 4.6lbs.

As a bonus, it has a built-in Xbox controller receiver and a Waves NX head tracking module for impeccable 3D audio.

Next, the Predator Triton 500 is equipped with an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070/2060 GPU! Its GPU is overclockable and VR-Ready, letting gamers enjoy the latest cutting edge gaming and VR experiences.

Last, but not the least, both the Predator Nitron 900 and the Triton 500 come with support for the PredatorSense app to control the laptops via smartphones. The app can control settings for overclocking, fan speeds, lighting, and audio modes. Users can show active lighting profiles preset on the PC, or switch lighting profiles remotely. It will also enable users to view and set customised macro key sets for physical hotkeys.

The Predator Triton 900 is expected to launch in North America, China, and EMEA regions in March with prices starting at $4,000, €4,200, and ¥40,000, respectively.

The Predator Triton 500 will be available on February 15 followed by the Predator Triton 900 on March 15.
