The Acer Predator Triton 900 morphs gaming laptops into something new

Acer has launched two new convertible gaming laptops under its Predator Triton series at the ongoing CES 2019 show in Las Vegas. What sets these laptops apart is, among a few other interesting features and some interesting design choices, support for Nvidia's new (ish) RTX 2080 GPUs, the most powerful graphics processors on the market today. You can also get a slightly cheaper variant with 16GB of RAM, 512GB of SSD storage, a 6GB RTX2060 graphics card and no G-Sync. I'm not sure ergonomics is top of mind for most gamers who are willing to shell out $4,000 for a laptop, but it can't hurt either.

Acer Predator Triton 500 will be made available in North America and EMEA in February at $1,799 (approximately Rs 1,25,000) and 1,999 Euros (approximately Rs 1,60,000), respectively. It is called the Acer Chromebook 315 and it is equipped with a 15.6-inch IPS display and comes with up to 10 hours of all-day battery life for web browsing, office applications and even online gaming. The Predator Triton 900, which was first unveiled at IFA 2018, is a 2-in-1 laptop with a CNC-machined hinge that that flips, extends, or reclines the 17-inch 4K display. NVIDIA G-SYNC technology creates fluid images as they zip across the screen while gaming or watching movies.

The Predator Triton 900 is powered by Intel's 8th-gen Core i7 processor, supported by up to 32GB RAM. Nvidia's tech models how we view real-world light, though proceed with caution, because only a limited number of games now support ray-tracing.

For surround sound audio experience, the laptop features Waves Maxx and Waves Nx technology with head tracking. Given the high-end hardware packed into these notebooks, it should come as no surprise that they also carry exceedingly high price tags.

At only 0.7 inches thick and tipping the scales at 4.6 pounds, the all-metal chassis contains excellent components.

Last, but not the least, both the Predator Nitron 900 and the Triton 500 come with support for the PredatorSense app to control the laptops via smartphones. Overclocking, fan speeds, lighting, and audio modes will all be under the control of this app and macros can also be viewed and set for physical hotkeys.
