Acer Introduces Predator Helios 700 With Ingenious HyperDrift Keyboard
Just moments ago, Acer unveiled the lids off of the Predator Helios 700 at [email protected] in New York, where it features a unique HyperDrift forward-sliding keyboard that helps in thermal performance.
Powering the machine is up to a 9th Gen Intel Core i9 processor and an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 or 2070 GPU graphics. In terms of memory, it offers up to 64GB of DDR4 RAM inside.
Additionally, it has Killer DoubleShot Pro with Killer Wi-Fi AX 1650 and E3000, delivering up to four times more network capacity in dense environments than previous generation wireless AC networks. Other than that, its display is a 17-inch 144Hz FHD IPS, which comes with 3ms response time and NVIDIA G-sync. There’s also five speakers and a subwoofer to keep the games immersive and engaging.
With its HyperDrift keyboard, it is a part of the laptop’s thermal architecture, which consists of two of Acer’s 4th Gen AeroBlade 3D fans, five copper heat pipes, a vapor chamber, and Acer CoolBoost technology.
By simply sliding the keyboard forward, two additional air intakes are uncovered above the keyboard and below the display, offering better thermal performance.
Besides the Predator Helios 700, Acer has also revealed the redesigned Predator Helios 300 laptop. The newer version of the Helios 300 comes with up to 9th Gen Intel Core i7 processor, RTX 2070/2060 or the latest GeForce GTX graphics cards.
The Predator Helios 700 is set for North America in July starting at a US$2,699.99 (~RM11,145). As for the redesigned Helios 300, it starts from a price tag of US$1,199.99 (~RM4953) and is set to be released in June of this year.
