Chassis, connectors, screen of Acer Predator Helios 300 PH315-53-77AY
It sports a gamer design using the codes of the genre with its angular lines and its black color.
Its cooling is ensured by AeroBlade 3D technology of 4th generation which uses 2 fans (59 bionic metal blades 0.1mm) to heat pipes.
In terms of connectivity, this computer is well equipped with its Bluetooth 5.0 and Wi-Fi ax modules ( more efficient and recent than Wi-Fi ac ) to communicate and connect remotely wirelessly, its HDMI and mini video outputs Practical DisplayPort for easy connection to a TV or monitor for example, its audio and Ethernet ports or its 3 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) guaranteeing transfers made up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if the USB 3.0 devices are connected to it.
Of course, the chiclet keyboard can be backlit which is handy for discerning its keys in the dark.
It also has 2 special keys: the Turbo key above on the left for instant overclocking, and PredatorSense at the level of the numeric keypad above the key to open the dedicated application (fan control, backlighting, overclocking, etc.)
The screen adopts a frequency of 144Hz which enhances the fluidity in games compared to the standard 60Hz. It lends itself well to the display of High Definition content and particularly to videos because of its precise Full HD definition and its 16: 9 format. Thanks to its IPS technology, the screen offers a more accurate colorimetry than the average as well as significant vertical and horizontal viewing angles. As it is anti-reflective, the screen also provides better visibility than a glossy panel in a light environment (eg outside).
Performance, battery life of the Acer Predator Helios 300 PH315-53-77AY
The Acer Predator Helios 300 PH315-53-77AY targets those who wish to acquire a versatile 15-inch laptop performing in games and multimedia oriented.
It is capable of running recent games because it is equipped with the dedicated GeForce RTX 2060 NVIDIA Turing graphics card with ray tracing.
In practice, the GeForce RTX 2060 is activated / deactivated automatically and in real time by NVIDIA Optimus technology, as needed.
Optimus gives maximum preference to the Intel UHD 630 solution integrated into the processor despite its very modest benefits because it is energy efficient and therefore promotes autonomy. The GeForce RTX 2060 is therefore activated by Optimus to carry out graphics processing that is too heavy for the Intel UHD 630, the 2 obviously allowing to watch photos and videos.
In addition, the GeForce RTX 2060 can be used to speed up processing under software that takes advantage of GPU computing power, such as Sony Vegas and Adobe Premiere / Photoshop, which will be of interest to creatives.
The storage is up to par, for both players and creators. It is entrusted to an SSD which guarantees a much better fluidity and reactivity in everyday life than a simple hard drive. Thanks to the SSD, we arrive faster on the online game cards and we benefit from faster game / software launches, starts / stops and treatments.
It is an SSD with a large capacity of 1 TB rivaling hard drives which is integrated. As a reminder, an SSD is much faster than a hard drive while being more energy efficient, more shock resistant and quieter.
The heart of this gaming computer is in keeping with it, built around a Comet Lake Hexa Core i7-10750H processor and a good amount of 16 GB of RAM. It delivers global power capable of satisfying demanding users and supports RTX 2060 well in games.
It is true that currently, the contribution of Hexa Core in games varies compared to a Quad Core.
But in any case, the heart guarantees much faster processing than a Quad Core processor and 8 GB DDR4 in areas that consume CPU and RAM resources exploiting multicores, such as video editing, photo editing or 3D rendering.
