First up is the new Predator Triton 17 X – or as Acer calls it, the “most powerful gaming laptop to date”. That being said, the company specifically mentions “less than an inch in height” (which means sub-25.4mm thickness), making it just ever-so-slightly thinner than the usual desktop-replacement suspects out there. The chassis is certainly not your standard gaming laptop stuff: we’re talking CNC-milled unibody chassis, micro-etched RGB logo, stainless steel speaker grilles, and diamond cut surfaces.

Inside the shell contains hardware that can be configured up to Intel Core i9-13900HX and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 laptop GPU, with RAM options available up to 64GB in DDR5-5600 configuration and combined 4TB SSD array in RAID 0 configuration. Display-wise, it comes with 17-inch 16:10 250Hz (likely overclocked) mini-LED display that boasts up to 1000 nits in brightness and full DCI-P3 coverage.

The cooling department gets a new triple-fan cooling layout coupled with vapor chamber, two of which are custom 5th-gen ‘AeroBlade’ fans with 10% increase in airflow from predecessor thanks to wind-guiding structures. The CPU also gets the liquid metal treatment for better heat conductivity, with dedicated heatpipes for the Intel chip to carry the heat away. Other features include: fingerprint reader, per-key RGB, six-speaker array, Intel Killer Wi-Fi & Ethernet, Thunderbolt 4 and SD 7.0 card reader.

Next up is the smaller 16-inch Predator Helios Neo 16: the lid of the laptop features laser-etched ‘encrypted codes’ which contains a secret message. The hardware itself is powered by Intel Core i7-13700HX and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 GPU (140W TGP), plus 32GB DDR5-4800 and 2TB SSD array in RAID 0 for its maximum configuration. The AeroBlade fans – which features ‘all-metal’ design help pushes the heat away coming from the CPU with liquid metal pre-applied. Display options include both 16:10 QHD+ 165Hz and FHD+ 165Hz option with 100% sRGB coverage.

Next up is the 14-incher, the Predator Triton 14. This lightweight, sub-20mm chassis contains up to Core i7-13700H (with liquid metal pre-applied) with the option of RTX 4070 or RTX 4050 laptop GPU. The 16:10 QHD+ 250Hz mini-LED display is DisplayHDR 600 certified and covers full DCI-P3 color gamut. This time around, the RAM is the soldered LPDDR5-6000 with up to 32GB available, plus a single M.2 SSD slot. Wi-Fi 6E is once again courtesy of Intel Killer chip; and among the ports include a microSD slot.

Finally, the special model comes in the form of Predator Helios 3D 15 SpatialLabs Edition. It packs serious hardware: including a Core i9-13900HX and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080 (with MUX switch) at disposal, with 32GB of DDR5-5600 to come along with it. The laptop itself also features Intel Killer Wi-Fi and Ethernet, with full range of I/O including two USB 3.2 Gen 2 (10Gbps) ports, including one with offline charging support, two Thunderbolt 4 ports and a microSD card reader.

The prominent feature is the 3D display which utilizes eye-tracking, stereoscopic 3D display and real-time scene rendering to generate in-game scenes in 3D form. Acer says currently over 70 titles support this feature, with different levels of 3D support including ‘3D+’ and ‘3D Ultra’ – and more titles will come down the line through the TrueGame app.

No local availability information is known so far – though some models are already available in some regions including China, while most models are expected to roll out starting next month in EMEA and NA regions.
