Performing in games thanks to its high-end NVIDIA Turing graphics card GeForce RTX 2070 ray tracing, the Acer Predator Helios 300 PH315-53-75QE benefits from a 15 inch IPS Full HD anti-reflective screen with 144Hz frequency to improve fluidity in games. This laptop is also multimedia oriented, the processing being accelerated by the RTX 2070 but also the SSD storage with a high capacity of 1 TB as well as by the core offering a solid overall power combining a good amount of RAM and a Hexa Core processor i7 Comet Lake. Black, this laptop also benefits from a backlit keyboard and a Wi-Fi ax connection, USB 3.1 Type-C double video output.

Chassis, connectors, screen of Acer Predator Helios 300 PH315-53-75QE
With its black chassis with angular lines, it sports a relatively sober design for a gaming laptop.
It has 4th generation AeroBlade 3D technology which combines 2 fans (59 0.1mm metal bionic blades) with heat pipes.
This gaming laptop has good connectivity including 1 USB 3.1 Type-C, Bluetooth 5.0 and Wi-Fi ax modules ( more efficient and recent than Wi-Fi ac ) to communicate and connect wirelessly, outputs HDMI video and mini-DisplayPort useful for easy connection to a TV or monitor for example, audio and Ethernet ports as well as 3 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) ensuring transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 devices are connected to it.
A backlighting system is of course fitted to the chiclet keyboard, which is practical for distinguishing its keys in dim light.
To seduce players, the keyboard comes with 2 special keys: the Turbo key at the top left for instant overclocking, and PredatorSense at the top of the numeric keypad to open the dedicated application (fan control, backlighting, overclocking, etc.). )
In the same vein, in order to improve the fluidity in games, Acer offers this PC a screen taking advantage of a refresh rate of 144Hz higher than the standard 60Hz. As it adopts IPS technology, the screen also displays more faithful colors than the average as well as significant horizontal and vertical viewing angles. It is suitable for High Definition content and particularly for videos because of its precise Full HD definition and its 16: 9 format. Anti-reflective, the screen also offers better visibility in a bright environment (eg outside) than a shiny screen.
Performance, battery life of the Acer Predator Helios 300 PH315-53-75QE
The Acer Predator Helios 300 PH315-53-75QE is aimed at those who intend to invest in a versatile 15-inch laptop that is efficient in games but also oriented towards creation.
The most recent and greedy games can run at a good level of details on this PC because it takes advantage of the dedicated graphics card NVIDIA Turing GeForce RTX 2070 with ray tracing.
The GeForce RTX 2070 also makes it possible to speed up processing under software exploiting GPU computing power. This is particularly the case with Adobe Photoshop / Premiere or Sony Vegas, which is of interest to creators.
Depending on the tasks performed, the NVIDIA Optimus on-board technology automatically switches between the GeForce RTX 2070 and the Intel UHD 630 solution integrated in the processor in real time.
Optimus operates the PC to the maximum on the Intel UHD 630 while its benefits are very modest because it is energy efficient which therefore promotes autonomy. In this regard, count on approximately 3 hours of battery operation in light use.
The GeForce RTX 2070 is in practice activated by Optimus to perform graphics processing deemed too heavy for the Intel UHD 630, the 2 obviously allowing to watch photos and videos.
The GeForce RTX 2070 is supported in games and more generally in the processing by the heart of this gaming computer. Composed of a Comet Lake Hexa Core i7-10750H processor and a good amount of 16 GB RAM, it delivers a global power capable of satisfying demanding users.
Creatives in particular will be delighted to obtain much faster processing than with a Quad Core processor and 8 GB DDR4. The difference is particularly noticeable in demanding jobs in CPU and RAM resources taking advantage of the multicore architecture, such as photo editing, video editing or 3D rendering.
Essential in games and under processing, responsiveness is reinforced under this PC by on-board SSD storage. It offers a large capacity of 1 TB which rivals hard drives. But as a bonus, the SSD is silent, much faster, less energy-consuming and more robust.
Result thanks to the SSD, we can get faster on the online game cards and get starts / stops, treatments and launches of games / applications much faster. More generally, the SSD brings a much better fluidity and reactivity in everyday life than a simple hard drive.
Finally, expect this computer to be heard and to heat up in the event of heavy loads (eg games, treatments).
