Acer Predator Triton 500 SE And Helios 300 Release On May 22

Acer's flagship Predator laptops for gamers and others with the need for powerful CPU's ad GPU's will launch in the US on May 22, after being unveiled at CES in January.

These are of course the Acer Predator Triton 500 SE And Helios 300.

Acer Predator Triton 500 SE is a 16-inch Windows laptop with a 2560 x 1600 resolution 240Hz display, powered by the 12th gen. 4.7GHz Intel Core i7-12700H processor, GeForce RTX 3070 Ti GPU, 16GB of LPDDR5 RAM, and 1TB 4×4 SSD storage.

Additional high-end specs includes support for up to 10K monitors, 40Gb/s Thunderbolt 4, and Killer Wi-Fi 6E.

Also launching in May 22 is the Acer Predator Helios 300.

This is the cheaper 17.3-inch Full HD Windows laptop with a more common 144Hz display, that has an Intel Core i7-12700H processor underneath, Nvidia's GeForce RTX 3060 GPU, 16GB of DDR5 RAM, and 512GB SSD storage.

So it has a lot of the same main hardware, just lacks the same capacity on the graphics and multimedia side of things.

You also got to appreciate that Acer refers to the ventilation of their monster computers as quad-exhaust pipes.
