Designed to play them but also to create, the Acer Predator Triton 300 SE PT314-51s-77SS has an elegant look for a gaming laptop capable of running recent games thanks to its high-end GeForce RTX 3060 NVIDIA Ampere graphics card with ray tracing which also speeds up processing such as 16 GB of RAM and fast 1 TB SSD storage which enhances its responsiveness. This versatile Ultrabook benefits from a 14-inch IPS anti-glare Full HD screen whose frequency of 144Hz and latency reduced to 3ms improve fluidity in games, a backlit keyboard but also a Wi-Fi ax and USB connection. C Thunderbolt 4. This slim and light laptop geared towards gamers and creators with a silver design is nomadic with its 7 hour battery life.

Chassis, connectors, screen of the Acer Predator Triton 300 SE PT314-51s-77SS
With its light silver frame with a brushed metal finish and angular lines, it has an elegant gamer feel.
It is cooled by 5th generation AeroBlade 3D technology with Vortex Flow via 2 fans (99 bionic metal blades 0.08mm), heat pipes and air vents.
This Ultrabook designed to play and create has good connectivity including 1 USB-C Thunderbolt 4, Bluetooth 5.0 and Wi-Fi ax modules ( more powerful and recent than Wi-Fi ac ) to communicate and connect remotely without – wire, a practical HDMI video output for easy connection to a TV or monitor for example, Ethernet and audio ports but also 2 USB 3.2 (USB 2.0 / 3.0 compatible) guaranteeing transfers up to 10 times faster than in USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 peripherals are connected to it.
A backlighting system is of course fitted to the chiclet keyboard, which is very practical for better discerning its keys in the dark.
To appeal to gamers, the screen adopts a latency reduced to 3ms associated with a frequency of 144Hz higher than the standard 60Hz, which has the effect of improving fluidity in games. Creatives will appreciate that the screen offers more faithful than average colorimetry with significant vertical and horizontal viewing angles, thanks to its IPS technology. The screen is also very suitable for displaying High Definition content such as videos due to its Full HD definition and its 16: 9 format. As it is anti-reflective, the screen also provides better visibility in a bright environment (eg outdoors) than a shiny panel.
Performance, autonomy of the Acer Predator Triton 300 SE PT314-51s-77SS
The Acer Predator Triton 300 SE PT314-51s-77SS is aimed at those who wish to acquire a versatile portable PC that is at the same time compact, nomadic and powerful in games, creation oriented.
It is able to run recent games because it embeds the dedicated high-end GeForce RTX 3060 ray tracing NVIDIA Ampere graphics card.
In addition, this GPU speeds up processing under software that takes advantage of GPU computing power, such as Adobe Premiere / Photoshop or Sony Vegas.
In practice, NVIDIA Optimus technology uses the GeForce RTX 3060 automatically and in real time. But only when the modest services of the Intel Iris Xe solution prove to be insufficient to perform the requested tasks. Integrated into the processor, the Iris Xe is indeed favored as much as possible by Optimus because its low power consumption promotes autonomy.
In this area, bet on about 7 hours on battery in light use for this versatile Ultrabook whose transport is facilitated by its controlled weight, its compactness and its finesse.
Of course, whether with the GeForce RTX 3060 or the Iris Xe, you can watch photos and videos.
The second is housed in the Quad Core i7-11370H, an Intel Tiger Lake-H processor here associated with 16 GB of RAM.
The general performances provided by this core are solid, able to satisfy a maximum of users.
Creators, for example, will appreciate getting faster processing with this core than with a low-power Quad Core or 8 GB DDR4. We particularly feel the difference in work requiring CPU and RAM resources using multicore, for example in video editing, photo editing or 3D rendering.
On the storage side, Acer wisely opts here for a 1TB SSD, a large capacity that rivals hard drives. But in addition to these, an SSD offers several advantages: it is silent, consumes less energy, is more resistant to shocks and is much faster.
Result thanks to the SSD, one reaches for example faster on the cards of the online games than with a simple hard disk and one benefits from launches of games / software, treatments and starts / stops much faster.
Finally, it should be kept in mind that the finesse of this designer-oriented gaming laptop PC involves noise and heating when it is strongly pushed (eg: games, processing).
