Performance, battery life of the Acer Predator Helios 300 PH315-54-55FT

The Acer Predator Helios 300 PH315-54-55FT can appeal to those who want to acquire a versatile 15-inch laptop that performs well in gaming and creation.

Built around 16 GB of RAM and a Hexa Core i5-11400H Intel Tiger Lake-H processor, this creator-oriented gaming laptop delivers solid overall performance able to satisfy a maximum of users.

Creators will appreciate that this core provides much faster processing than 8 GB DDR4 and a Quad Core processor, the difference being particularly noticeable under RAM and CPU intensive work exploiting multi-core, such as video editing, 3D rendering or photo editing.

In addition, the dedicated GeForce RTX 3060 embedded graphics card accelerates multimedia processing under software that takes advantage of GPU computing power, such as Adobe Premiere/Photoshop or Sony Vegas.

Equipped with the NVIDIA Ampere architecture, the high-end GeForce RTX 3060 ray tracing aims above all to seduce gamers because it is able to run recent games.
In this regard, let’s mention the fact that currently in games, the contribution of the Hexa Core is variable compared to a Quad Core.

The GeForce RTX 3060 is automatically turned on/off in real time by NVIDIA Optimus technology, depending on the tasks performed.

Optimus prefers as much as possible the Iris Xe, graphics solution housed within the Hexa Core i5. Certainly it allows you to watch photos and videos but also to run modest games, but is much less powerful than the GeForce RTX 3050. If the Iris Xe is preferred by Optimus, it is because it consumes little energy which promotes autonomy.

In this area, bet on about 3 hours of battery operation in light use.

On the storage side, there is a 512 GB SSD that is more energy efficient than a hard drive while being more resistant to shocks, silent or much faster.
But its capacity is in line with what hard drives offer as standard.

That said, if you need more space, you can use an external storage unit. Opting for a USB-C/Thunderbolt/USB 3.0 device is then an interesting solution to get fast transfers.

In any case in practice the SSD guarantees a much better fluidity and responsiveness on a daily basis than a simple hard disk. Thanks to the SSD, for example, you can reach the cards of online games faster than with a simple hard drive and you get much faster game/software launches, processes and starts/stops.

Finally, when it is strongly pushed (e.g. games, treatments), expect this versatile creator-oriented gaming laptop to be heard and heated.
