Chassis, connectivity, screen of the Acer Predator Triton PT515-51 (NH.Q4WEF.009)
For a portable gamer, it has a relatively simple and elegant look although it takes the codes of the genre with the angular lines of its black metal chassis, and its blue keys with Predator logo that illuminates on the hull.
It is cooled by the 4th generation AeroBlade 3D technology employing 3 fans (59 0.1mm thin bionic blades, noise reduction), heat pipes and air vents present at the back, on the sides and above the keyboard.
This powerful ultrabook gamer enjoys connectivity at the height. It consists of 1 USB 3.1 Type-C Thunderbolt 3, Bluetooth 5.0 modules and Wi-Fi ac to communicate and connect wirelessly remotely, HDMI video outputs and mini-DisplayPort convenient for easily connecting this PC to a TV and / or a monitor, for example, Ethernet and audio ports, or USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible), guaranteeing transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if you connect to them. USB 3.0 devices.
Of course, the chiclet keyboard can be backlit, here via a 3-zone RGB system, which is convenient to discern the keys in the dark.
However, no keypad while it is a standard in 15 inches, which will probably regret some.
In any case to seduce the players, ZQSD keyboard keys are “concave transparent” and 2 special keys are integrated: PredatorSense on the right side just below the start / stop button to launch the dedicated utility (fan control , keyboard shortcuts, backlighting, etc.) and Turbo just above the F1 / F2 keys to instantly overclock the PC.
The screen for its part enhances the fluidity in games compared to a standard screen 60Hz thanks to its frequency 144Hz. It offers more accurate colorimetry with large viewing angles, both horizontal and vertical, because it takes advantage of IPS technology. Full HD, the screen is accurate and suitable for displaying High Definition content such as videos by its 16 / 9th format. As it is anti-reflective treatment, it also provides better visibility than a bright slab in bright environment (ex: outdoor)
Performance, autonomy of the Acer Predator Triton PT515-51 (NH.Q4WEF.009)
The Acer Predator Triton PT515-51 (NH.Q4WEF.009) can appeal to those who have a large budget and wish to acquire in a versatile notebook compact, lightweight and powerful, especially in games.
Thanks to its dedicated GeForce RTX 2080 NVIDIA Turing ray-tracing board, here in Max-Q edition , this powerful Ultrabook gamer is able to run the user\’s favorite games at a good level of detail.
Depending on the tasks requested, embedded NVIDIA Optimus technology switches automatically and in real time between the GeForce RTX 2080 and the Intel UHD 630 integrated into the processor.
Optimus requests maximum the Intel UHD 630 despite its very modest benefits because it is energy efficient and therefore promotes autonomy. The GeForce RTX 2080 is in practice activated by Optimus to perform graphic processing considered too heavy for the Intel UHD 630. These two solutions obviously allow to look at photos and videos.
An essential parameter in gaming, Acer\’s responsiveness is particularly meticulous, with this notebook offering SSD storage with a massive capacity of 1000 GB that rival hard drives. But in addition, compared to the latter, remember that a SSD is much faster while being more energy efficient, more resistant to shock and silent.
Here are more precisely 2 SSDs of 512 GB configured in RAID 0 which are embedded for a maximum reactivity. They bring a significantly higher fluidity to a hard drive, with startups / stops and games / software launches much faster. They allow to arrive more quickly on the map of online games.
The GeForce RTX 2080 is also well supported in games by the heart of this thin and light computer. It delivers simply a global power able to seduce the demanding users because it integrates a Hexa Core i7-9750H Coffee Lake Refresh processor coupled to 16 GB of RAM.
Thus, we benefit in particular much faster processing with a quad core processor and 8 GB DDR4 in the CPU and RAM resource intensive areas taking advantage of multicore, for example in video editing, photo editing or 3D rendering.
In games however, the contribution of the Hexa Core is variable compared to a Quad Core.
Keep in mind, however, that if the compactness and the weight of this computer facilitates its transport, especially for a PC gamer, this in turn leads to an increase in noise and temperatures in heavy stresses (eg games). However, this should remain reasonable for this type of machine.
Finally side autonomy, bet about 6 hours of battery operation in light use.
