Acer Killer Triton 700, New high-end PC gaming laptop - Trends Today

Acer today announced its new high-end PC gaming laptop computer, the Killer Triton 700. The laptop features a quad-core Intel CPU, a yet unspecified NVIDIA GPU, 16 GB of memory, 2.6 kg (5.7lbs) weight as well as a mechanical keyboard.

The Acer Predator Triton 700 has a 15.6" FHD display as well as is based on Intel's Core i5-7300HQ or Core i7-7700HQ processor, depending upon particular version. The laptop equipped with 16 GB of DDR4-2400, up to 2 512 GB SSDs, Rivet Networks Killer DoubleShot Pro network solution (featuring a 2 × 2 802.11 air conditioning Wi-Fi and a GbE controller), Thunderbolt 3 connectivity, and various other functions one would certainly anticipate from a premium laptop.

Meanwhile, the laptop computer procedures in at just 18.9 mm thick and also consider around 2.6 kilograms, or roughly concerning the dimension of a mainstream notebook from a decade ago. With the Predator Triton 700, Acer is seeking to bring the efficiency of a video gaming desktop to the "thin-class" video gaming laptops, as well as provides us a concept what to get out of next-gen gaming notebooks in general.

Concerning overall layout, the Predator Triton 700 is among a variety of modern thinner-and-lighter premium gaming laptop computers to strike the marketplace recently. As the appeal of gaming notebooks has continuously increased, various makers of such PCs started to expand their lineups with thinner equipment aimed at gamers, mostly breaking these specific niche items to courses that differ by performance and weight/dimensions.

A feature of the Predator Triton 700 that Acer is particularly happy with - and is a significant component of allowing the laptop to be as tiny as it is its cooling system, which has five heat pipe's as well as two slim AeroBlade 3D followers with rounded steel blades that create raised airflow. A big Corning Gorilla Glass plate that acts as a touchpad covers the cooling system and also the vital organs of the laptop, whereas the backlit mechanical keyboard resides towards the individual, providing the system an incredibly distinct look.

At the same time, one of the things that Acer is not revealing are the graphics processors options readily available: the only thing we understand is that the system runs an undisclosed GeForce GTX 10-series processor and that the high-end arrangement scores ~ 17,000 points in 3DMark11 (based upon Acer's presentation).

Such an efficiency level is typical for the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 GPU (when collaborating with the i7-7700HQ). However, this GPU takes in 110 W of power, so it's unclear whether a 15.6"/ 18.9 mm framework with two blowers uses enough cooling capability to avoid substantial throttling. Usually, reasonably slim gaming notepads use GeForce GTX 1060 graphics chips with around 80 W TDP, but such GPUs struck around 12,000-- 13,000 in 3DMark11 (with the same CPU).

It's possible that Acer will certainly be using a GTX 1060 variation as a mid-range arrangement anyways, so the actual concern is what exact GPU will go into the high-end setup. The Predator Triton 700 outfitted with a yet unannounced variation of NVIDIA's GP104 GPU with a substantially minimized TDP.

Covering things up, the Acer Predator Triton 700 gaming laptop will be offered in Europe as well as North America this August. MSRPs will start from EUR3399 and also $2999, relying on the arrangement, with exact specifications and prices varying from market to market.
