Acer boasted to the world of its new laptops. One is a typical office proposition, while the other is equipment for players and creators. The company has thrown the latest components into the fresh Predator Triton 16, and it’s still very slim.
Gaming laptops are often associated with thick, heavy pieces of electronics that scream that they are made for players.
Acer has in its portfolio the Triton series, from which the proposals often go beyond this scheme. The new model shows this, because it offers an elegant look.
Acer Predator Triton 16. A gaming laptop that doesn’t scream it’s for gaming
The latest Acer Predator laptop has a lot to offer. First of all, regardless of the version, it is based on Intel Core 13th generation Raptor Lake processors, where we can get a maximum of i9-13900H with a boost clock of 5.4 GHz. The processor is supported by up to 32 GB of DDR5-5200 memory and 2 TB on a PCIe disk.
In addition, the user will get a GeForce RTX 4070 8 GB graphics card compatible with DLSS 3 and frame generation technology. The manufacturer has opted for a 16-inch IPS display with a 16:10 aspect ratio, working at a WQXGA resolution of 2560 × 1600 pixels with a refresh rate of 240 Hz. The panel has a maximum brightness of 500 nits, 100% DCI-P3 color coverage and G-Sync support.
The Predator Triton 16 has been enclosed in a slim (as for a gaming laptop) housing with a thickness of 19.9 mm. Despite this, the laptop does not lack the necessary connectors – 2x USB-A 3.2 Gen 2, 1x Thunderbolt 4, 1x HDMI 2.1, 1x Ethernet and 1x 3.5 mm audio. We also have WiFi 6E support.
The price of the device will start from EUR 2,299 (approx. PLN 10,400).-
Acer Swift Edge 16 is a laptop that supports WiFi 7
Next to the gaming Triton 16, the Acer Swift Edge 16 was presented. It is a modern notebook, as indicated by its specification. The equipment is based on the latest AMD Ryzen 7040 series with the support of the Radeon 780M graphics system.
The laptop screen is a 16-inch OLED working at a resolution of 3200 × 2000 pixels with a refresh rate of 120 Hz, a response time of 0.2 ms, 100% DCI-P3 coverage and a brightness of 500 nits. The laptop weighs 1.23 kg and measures 12.95 mm at the thickest point, and the manufacturer used a magnesium alloy housing. There are also 2x USB-A, USB-C 4 connectors with Power Delivery 65 W and image transfer function, HDMI 2.1, microSD reader and 1440p webcam.
The most interesting thing, however, is that the laptop has WiFi 7 connectivity on board, which is not yet standard. The technology can provide download speeds of up to 5.8 Gbps, which is really impressive.
Acer Swift Edge 16 in the basic version will cost EUR 1,199 (approx. PLN 5,400).
