Acer Updates Predator Triton 500 Gaming Laptop With 300Hz Display
The Triton 500 laughs at your 240Hz display
At the IFA show in Berlin this week, Acer announced a new 300Hz display option for its Predator Triton 500 gaming laptop. The 15.6-inch Max-Q Triton 500 was first introduced earlier this year and features up to 9th Gen Intel Core processors, NVIDIA RTX 2060 or RTX 2080 graphics, 32GB of DDR4 memory, and two NVMe SSDs in a relatively thin and light package (17.9mm thick and 2.1kg/4.6lbs).
Previously available with a 144Hz display, the updated Triton 500 now features a 300Hz display with a 1920x1080 resolution, 3ms response time, and G-SYNC support. Detailed technical specifications for the display aren’t yet available. The previous Triton 500 used an IPS panel but with the move to 300Hz, the use of a TN panel is likely.
As one of the first displays to hit the 300Hz mark, gamers with a need for speed should expect to pay a premium. Pricing for all Triton 500 configurations was not disclosed, but Acer said that the starting price in North America will be $2,799 when it launches in December.
