Designed as a mobile desktop replacement, the Acer Predator Helios 700 is a behemoth of a gaming laptop with the power to back it up. Now, it’s powered by the new 10th Gen Intel Core CPU, with consumers having the choice of either Intel Core i9-10980HK or i7-10875H. As for GPU, it will be a choice of NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER or RTX 2070 SUPER.

It uses a 17.3-inch Full HD display with 144Hz refresh rate and NVIDIA G-SYNC support. On the networking side, you can make use of KILLER DoubleShot Pro for better speed, stability, and performance when gaming online. It still retains the signature HyperDrift sliding keyboard with per-key RGB lighting, which can improve cooling immensely. The MagForce keys have been further improved, allowing for finer and controlled movements in-game, especially for racing games.

What’s interesting here is that Acer has equipped it with a new thermal solution called the Predator PowerGem. It’s a special thermal interface material (TIM) with high efficiency in heat conduction. This results in 3.83 times more vertical head conductivity than copper. The Predator PowerGem is added to the existing five copper heat pipes and works together with Acer CoolBoost technology as well as the 4th Gen AeroBlade 3D fans to keep the machine running cool.
