Powerful thin and light black gaming laptop, the Acer Predator Triton 500 PT515-52-70G8 takes advantage of a high-end GeForce RTX 2070 Super NVIDIA Turing graphics card with ray tracing to run recent games and speed up multimedia processing. like the core consisting of a Hexa Core i7 Comet Lake-H processor to a fair amount of RAM. Equipped with a 15-inch IPS Full HD anti-glare screen whose frequency of 144Hz improves fluidity in games, this laptop benefits from enhanced responsiveness thanks to its fast 1TB SSD storage but also a backlit chiclet keyboard ( however without numeric keypad) as well as a Wi-Fi ax and USB 3.2 Type-C Thunderbolt 3 connection.

Chassis, connectors, screen of Acer Predator Triton 500 PT515-52-70G8
With a thin and light black metal frame with angular lines, it sports a clearly gamer design and despite everything relatively elegant for this type of PC whose codes it uses.
The 4th generation AeroBlade 3D technology is integrated to cool it by combining 3 fans (59 thin 0.1mm bionic blades, noise reduction), heat pipes as well as air vents at the back, sides and above the keyboard.
This creator-oriented ultrabook gamer is well equipped in terms of connectivity with its USB 3.2 Type-C Thunderbolt 3, its Bluetooth 5.0 and Wi-Fi ax modules ( newer and more efficient than Wi-Fi ac ) to communicate and connect remotely wireless, its useful HDMI and mini-DisplayPort video outputs for easy connection to a TV and / or monitor for example, its Ethernet and audio ports not to mention its 3 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) guaranteeing transfers up to ‘at 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if you plug in USB 3.0 peripherals.
Of course, the chiclet keyboard can be backlit, here via an RGB solution, which is handy for correctly discerning its keys in the dark. To seduce players, it incorporates “transparent concave” ZQSD keys and 2 special keys: PredatorSense on the right side just below the start / stop button to launch the dedicated utility (fan control, keyboard shortcuts, backlight, etc.) but also Turbo just above the F1 / F2 keys to instantly overclock this PC.
On the other hand, there is no numeric keypad on the right of the keyboard while it is standard in 15 inches, which may cool those who regularly enter numbers.
Thanks to its frequency of 144Hz, the screen improves fluidity in games compared to the 60Hz standard. It also offers more faithful than average colorimetry as well as 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 thanks to its precise Full HD definition and its 16: 9 format. Anti-reflective coating, the screen also provides better visibility than a shiny panel in a bright environment (eg outdoors).
Performance, battery life of Acer Predator Triton 500 PT515-52-70G8
The Acer Predator Triton 500 PT515-52-70G8 may appeal to those who have a comfortable budget and are looking for a compact and lightweight laptop that is powerful in gaming but also creative oriented.
The latest graphics-intensive games can run at a good level of detail on this thin and light PC as it is equipped with the dedicated NVIDIA Turing high-end GeForce RTX 2070 Super NVIDIA Turing graphics card with ray-tracing.
In practice, the GeForce RTX 2070 Super is activated / deactivated automatically and in real time by on-board NVIDIA Optimus technology, depending on the actions performed.
Optimus gives maximum preference to the Intel UHD 630 solution integrated into the processor despite its very modest features because it is energy efficient and therefore promotes autonomy. The GeForce RTX 2070 Super is therefore activated by Optimus to perform graphics processing that is too heavy for the Intel UHD 630. Both of them of course allow you to watch photos and videos.
In addition, under software that takes advantage of GPU computing power (eg Adobe Premiere / Photoshop or Sony Vegas), the GeForce RTX 2070 Super speeds up processing, which will be of interest to creators.
The heart of this gaming laptop is up to the task, delivering all-around power to satisfy demanding users. Composed of a Hexa Core i7-10750H Comet Lake-H processor and a good amount of 16 GB RAM, it supports the GeForce RTX 2070 Super well in games.
The core notably guarantees much faster processing than a Quad Core processor and 8 GB DDR4. You can really feel the difference in work requiring CPU and RAM resources using multicore, such as photo editing, video editing or 3D rendering.
On the storage side, Acer makes the wise choice of an SSD, especially if we take into account the thinness of the chassis. An SSD is indeed more energy efficient than a hard drive while being more robust, silent and much faster. Here, we are dealing with a 1 TB SSD, a large capacity that easily rivals that of hard disks.
On a daily basis, the SSD makes it possible to arrive faster than with a hard drive on online game cards, for example. It also guarantees much faster starts / stops, treatments and launches of games / software.
Finally in terms of autonomy, expect about 6 hours of battery operation in light use for this Ultrabook whose transport is facilitated by the weight contained and finesse. However, these characteristics cause significant noise and heat in the event of heavy loads (eg: games, treatments).
