Chassis, connectors, screen of Acer Predator Helios 300 PH315-53-79K7
It has a discreet look for a gaming laptop PC which it nevertheless adopts the codes with its black frame with angular lines.
The 4th generation AeroBlade 3D technology takes care of cooling it using 2 fans (59 bionic metal blades 0.1mm), heat pipes and ventilation grilles.
In terms of connectivity, this gaming laptop PC is well equipped with its USB-C, its Bluetooth 5.0 and Wi-Fi ax modules ( more efficient and recent than Wi-Fi ac ) to communicate and connect remotely wirelessly, its practical HDMI and mini-DisplayPort video outputs for easy connection to a TV or monitor for example, its Ethernet and audio ports or even its 3 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) guaranteeing transfers carried out up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 devices are connected to it.
The chiclet keyboard can of course be backlit, which is useful for discerning its keys in the dark.
It is equipped as a bonus with 2 special keys to seduce players: Turbo at the top left for instant overclocking and PredatorSense at the top of the numeric keypad to open the appropriate application (fan control, backlighting, overclocking, etc.).
The screen also targets gamers because it adopts a 144Hz refresh rate which enhances fluidity in games compared to the 60Hz standard. Thanks to its IPS technology, the screen also offers more faithful than average colorimetry as well as important viewing angles, both horizontal and vertical. The screen also lends itself very well to the display of High Definition content such as videos because it adopts a Full HD definition and a 16: 9 format. Anti-reflective coating, it also ensures better visibility than a shiny panel in a bright environment (eg outdoors).
Performance, autonomy of Acer Predator Helios 300 PH315-53-79K7
The Acer Predator Helios 300 PH315-53-79K7 targets those looking for a versatile 15-inch laptop capable of gaming and creation oriented.
Thanks to the GeForce RTX 2070, NVIDIA Turing dedicated high-end graphics card equipped with ray tracing, this laptop PC is capable of running the most recent games that are greedy in graphics resources.
In practice, the present NVIDIA Optimus technology calls on the GeForce RTX 2070 automatically and in real time only when the very modest services of the Intel UHD 630 solution prove to be insufficient to carry out the tasks performed. Integrated within the processor, the Intel UHD 630 is in fact favored as much as possible by Optimus because its reduced energy consumption promotes autonomy. Whether with the GeForce RTX 2070 or the Intel UHD 630, you can obviously watch photos and videos.
In addition, the GeForce RTX 2070 has the advantage of speeding up processing under software that takes advantage of computing power, such as Sony Vegas or Adobe Premiere / Photoshop, which will be of interest to creative people.
The latter as well as the players will be delighted with the overall power delivered by the heart of this computer. It is indeed built around an Intel HM470 chipset, a good amount of 16 GB RAM and a Hexa Core i7-10750H Comet Lake-H processor.
These components guarantee much faster processing than 8 GB DDR4 and a Quad Core processor, the difference being particularly noticeable in areas that are greedy in RAM and CPU resources using multi-core, such as video editing, photo editing or 3D rendering.
In terms of storage, we are dealing here with an SSD with a large capacity of 1 TB easily competing with what hard disks offer.
But compared to the latter, remember that an SSD is more energy efficient, more resistant to shocks, silent and much faster.
Concretely, thanks to the SSD, we reach the cards of online games faster than with a simple hard drive and we obtain games / software launches, treatments and starts / stops much faster. The SSD actually provides much better fluidity and responsiveness on a daily basis than a simple hard drive.
Finally on the autonomy side, expect about 3 hours of battery operation in light use for this gaming laptop which is heard and heats up when strongly pushed (eg: games, treatments).
