After the Triton 300 obtained a SE version with simpler lines, it is now the Triton 500’s turn to get a similar treatment, resulting in a Triton 500 SE version with simpler lines and a lower-key overall feel. Although the appearance is not so “e-sports”, but it can still buy up to the 11th generation Core i9 processor, RTX3080 graphics card, 4TB of storage space and 64GB of memory. Although powerful, Acer claims that its power can last up to 12 hours.

In the panel part, it is equipped with a 16-inch panel with a screen-to-body ratio of up to 87%. The choice of the panel shows that it straddles the position between work and game-you can choose to focus on work WQXGA mini-LED panel with 1,250 nit brightness and 165Hz refresh rate, fully covering the DCI-PC color gamut; or 240Hz WQXGA IPS panel based on games, with 3ms response time and NVIDIA G-Sync technology.

At the same time, Acer is also bringing the 11th generation Core H45 processor to more models. The Predator Helios 500 in the picture above can choose up to the 11th generation Core i9 plus RTX 3080 graphics card and 64GB of memory, and the 17.3-inch screen can also Choose 120Hz 4K Mini-LED or FHD 360Hz panel. In the desktop part, Orion 3000 adds the option of 11th-generation Core i7 with NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070; and Nitro 50, you can choose the 11th-generation Core i7 or AMD Ryzen 5000 with GeForce RTX 3060 Ti.

Triton 500 SE is expected to be launched in the United States in June, with basic models starting from US$1,750; Helios 500 will be launched in the United States in August, with a starting price of US$2,500. I don’t know how much money I can get.
