Chassis, connectors, screen of Acer Predator Helios 300 PH315-53-74VP
It has a relatively discreet look for a gaming computer which it nevertheless takes the codes with its black frame with angular lines.
Its cooling is provided by the 4th generation AeroBlade 3D technology thanks to 2 fans (59 bionic metal 0.1mm blades), heat pipes and aeration grids.
The connectivity integrated into this creator-oriented gaming computer is good, made up of Bluetooth 5.0 and Wi-Fi ax modules ( more powerful and recent than Wi-Fi ac ) to communicate and connect remotely wirelessly, HDMI video outputs and practical mini-DisplayPort to easily connect this PC to a TV or monitor for example, audio and Ethernet ports, 1 USB 3.1 Type-C or 3 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) guaranteeing transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if you connect USB 3.0 devices.
The chiclet keyboard can be backlit by a 4-zone RGB system, which is very practical for discerning its keys in the dark.
To seduce gamers, it offers 2 specific keys: top left, Turbo for instant overclocking, and top of the PredatorSense numeric keypad to open the dedicated application (fan control, backlighting, overclocking, etc.)
With its response time limited to 3ms and frequency 144Hz characteristics, the screen improves fluidity in games compared to the 60Hz standard. In addition, thanks to its IPS technology, the screen has large vertical and horizontal viewing angles. It also offers more faithful than average colorimetry. As it is anti-reflective, the screen also provides better visibility than a shiny panel in a bright environment (eg outdoors). It also lends itself very well to the display of High Definition content and especially videos thanks to its precise Full HD definition and its 16: 9 format.
Performance, battery life of Acer Predator Helios 300 PH315-53-74VP
The Acer Predator Helios 300 PH315-53-74VP may appeal to those looking for a powerful 15-inch versatile laptop targeting gamers and creator-oriented.
Thanks to its dedicated high-end NVIDIA Turing GeForce RTX 2070 graphics card with ray tracing, here in Max-Q edition , this relatively thin laptop is capable of running recent and greedy games at a good level of detail.
Under software that takes advantage of GPU computing power, processing is accelerated by the GeForce RTX 2070 Max-Q, which will be of interest to creatives. This is for example the case with Sony Vegas or Adobe Premiere / Photoshop.
In practice, the integrated NVIDIA Optimus technology activates the GeForce RTX 2070 automatically and in real time only when the very modest performance of the Intel UHD 630 solution housed within the processor is insufficient to perform the tasks performed by the user.
The Intel UHD 630 is indeed favored as much as possible by Optimus because it consumes little energy, which promotes autonomy.
In this regard, expect about 5 hours of battery operation in light use.
Of course, whether with the GeForce RTX 2070 or the Intel UHD 630, you can obviously watch photos and videos.
Thanks to the onboard SSD, this laptop benefits from enhanced responsiveness on a daily basis, including in games and under treatment, compared to a simple hard drive. This way, for example, we get faster on the cards of online games and we benefit from games / software launches, processing and starts / stops much faster.
With its 512 GB, the SSD is intended to house games / software in addition to the system, the rest (eg: personal production, documents, photos, etc.) taking place on the hard drive with a large capacity of 1000 GB which accompanies it, swift with its speed of 7200 rev / min against 5400 rev / min usually.
The heart of this computer is up to the task both to support the GeForce RTX 2070 Max-Q and to appeal to gamers and creators. It provides an overall power that can appeal to demanding users because it is based on a good amount of 16 GB RAM and a Comet Lake Hexa Core i7-10750H processor.
The contribution of the Hexa Core is certainly currently variable in games compared to a Quad Core.
The fact remains that it nevertheless supports the RTX 2070 well in games. And that the Core i7-10750H and the 16 GB of RAM guarantee much faster processing than a Quad Core processor and 8 GB DDR4 in areas that require CPU and RAM resources using multicore, such as video editing, 3D rendering or photo editing.
Finally, expect this laptop to heat up and be heard when pushed hard (eg games, treatments).
