Acer first showed off the Predator Triton 900 at IFA 2018, but kept it under glass.
While the Triton 900 will cater to a small market, consumers who want a traditional clamshell laptop solution can check out the Triton 500, which starts from $1,799.
The device features a 17-inch 4K display supported by a CNC-machined Ezel Aero Hinge that allows you to flip, extend, or recline the screen while it remains attached to the base. As most gaming laptops do, there is a 144Hz refresh rate in overdrive at 3ms, NVIDIA G-Sync technology. Lately we've been seeing notebook manufacturers trying to cut back on the size of the gaming laptops, and the Triton 500 serves as one of Acer's attempts at doing just that.
It also features audio by Waves which offers head tracking to provide you a more realistic 3D audio experience. It comes in two configurations - AMD A6-9220C APU and A4-9120C APU in a system-on-chip design. The Triton 500 offers superb gaming performance in a slimmer, all-metal body and empowers gamers on the go.
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.
Internally, there's a choice of 8th Generation Intel processors, the Nvidia RTX 2080 GPU, and 32GB of DDR4 RAM. Users can control settings for overclocking, fan speeds, lighting, as well as audio modes. The utilized metal chassis is also just 17.9 mm thick and it weighs 1.9 kg. It will also enable users to view and set customised macro key sets for physical hotkeys. The Predator Triton 900 with its insane hinge starts at $3,999 and it will be available in the United States this March. It will be available in North America in February with prices starting at US$1,799, in EMEA in February with prices starting at €1,999, and in China in January with prices starting at ¥16,999.
