Chassis, connectors, screen of the Acer Predator Helios 300 PH315-53-71EA
This designer-oriented gaming laptop PC has a clear gamer allure with its black design with angular lines cooled by 4th generation AeroBlade 3D technology via 2 fans (59 bionic metal blades 0.1mm), heat pipes and air vents.
In terms of connectivity, it is well equipped with its USB-C, its HDMI video outputs and mini-DisplayPort useful for easily connecting to a TV or a monitor for example, its Bluetooth 5.0 and Wi-Fi ax modules ( more efficient and recent than Wi-Fi ac ) to communicate and connect remotely wirelessly, its Ethernet and audio ports not to mention its 3 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) guaranteeing transfers taking place up to 10 times faster than in USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 peripherals are connected to it.
The chiclet keyboard can be backlit, which is very practical for distinguishing its keys in a dark environment.
It comes with 2 special keys: top left Turbo for instant overclocking, top of the PredatorSense numeric keypad to open the appropriate application (fan control, backlighting, overclocking, etc.).
The screen for its part enhances fluidity in games thanks to its refresh rate of 144Hz higher than the 60Hz standard. It lends itself well to the display of High Definition content such as videos with its Full HD definition and its 16: 9 format. Thanks to its IPS technology, the screen also has large viewing angles, both horizontally and vertically, while reproducing colors more faithfully than average. Anti-reflective coating, the screen also offers better visibility in a bright environment (eg outdoors) than a shiny panel.
Performance, battery life of the Acer Predator Helios 300 PH315-53-71EA
The Acer Predator Helios 300 PH315-53-71EA is for those who want to acquire a versatile 15-inch laptop that is powerful in gaming and creative oriented.
It features the GeForce RTX 3080, the most powerful high-end mobile graphics card with ray tracing available today. In other words, you can play at a good level of detail the most recent and greedy titles with this gaming laptop PC.
In addition, the GeForce RTX 3080 has the advantage of speeding up processing under software using GPU computing power (eg Sony Vegas, Adobe Premiere / Photoshop), something that is of interest to creative people.
The GeForce RTX 3080 activated / deactivated automatically and in real time by NVIDIA Optimus technology, depending on the tasks performed.
To promote battery life as much as possible, Optimus makes maximum use of the Intel UHD 630, a modest graphics solution integrated into the processor.
In terms of battery life precisely, expect about 3 hours of battery operation in light use.
The GeForce RTX 3080 is in practice called upon by Optimus to perform graphics work deemed too heavy for the Intel UHD 630, for example for gaming. With one or the other of these graphics solutions in any case, we can obviously watch photos and videos.
The Intel UHD 630 takes place within the Intel Comet Lake-H Octo Core i7-10870H processor, here coupled with 16 GB of RAM to provide overall power capable of satisfying demanding users.
Creators in particular will appreciate much faster processing with this core than with a Quad / Hexa Core processor and 8 GB DDR4. We particularly feel the difference under demanding work in CPU and RAM resources taking advantage of multi-core, such as photo editing, 3D rendering or video editing.
Built around an Intel HM470 chipset, the heart is accompanied by SSD storage guaranteeing much better responsiveness and fluidity on a daily basis than a simple hard drive.
Thanks to the SSD, for example, we take advantage of much faster game / software launches as well as processing and starts / stops, or even a faster arrival on the cards of online games.
Let us recall in this regard that an SSD is much faster than a hard drive while being more resistant to shocks, more energy efficient and silent.
In addition here we are dealing with a 1TB SSD, a large capacity similar to that offered by hard disks, which is appreciable for accommodating multiple files, games and software.Finally when it is strongly pushed (eg games, processing), this computer intended for games and creation is heard and heats up.
