Acer Announces Predator Triton 900 and Triton 500 Gaming Laptops

Not to be outdone by Asus' ROG Mothership mega-announcement at CES 2019, Acer also displayed its own showstopper: the 2-in-1 Triton 900 with a 4K 17-inch display. What sets these laptops apart is, among a few other interesting features and some interesting design choices, support for Nvidia's new (ish) RTX 2080 GPUs, the most powerful graphics processors on the market today. These include the Acer Predator Triton 900 and Acer Predator Triton 500. You can also get a slightly cheaper variant with 16GB of RAM, 512GB of SSD storage, a 6GB RTX2060 graphics card and no G-Sync. The unique hinge offers four different ways to use the laptop offering a notebook mode allowing you to use the system as a regular laptop, laptop mode which converts the system into a 17 inch tablet "Ezel mode" for playing games on the touchscreen and finally display mode which allows users to flip the screen for presentations. Because of its nature as a business laptop, the Predator Triton 500 features G-Sync and a refresh rate of 144 Hz.

Inside the Predator Triton 900 are two components of particular note: the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 GPU, and an 8th-gen Intel Core processor. 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.

The couple had been out of town, during the unusual incident, but their children were sleep inside the family's home. A family in Salinas called police after their security system caught the man going to town on their doorbell.

As a bonus, it has a built-in Xbox controller receiver and a Waves NX head tracking module for impeccable 3D audio. We were able to snag some hands-on time with the more traditional-looking laptop of the two, the Triton 500. Its GPU is overclockable and VR-Ready, letting gamers enjoy the latest cutting edge gaming and VR experiences. Acer intends to release a smartphone app that it is calling PredatorSense later this year, which will make it possible for you to adjust the lights, audio, and fans on the system. Users can show active lighting profiles preset on the PC, or switch lighting profiles remotely.

The Predator Triton 900 will be available in North America in March with prices starting at US$3,999; in EMEA in March, with prices starting at €4,199, and in China in March, with prices starting at ¥39,999.
