Predator Triton 500 SE — Thin Gaming Laptop
The Predator Triton 500 SE (PT516-52s) is a “special edition” laptop for gaming and work.On the inside, up to a 12th Gen Intel Core i9 processor, an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Laptop GPU, and 32 GB of 5200 MHz LPDDR5 memory dish out the extreme performance necessary for the latest games. On the outside, its all-metalspartan-styled aesthetics let it blend perfectly into the workplace or lecture hall. Just 19.9 mm (0.75 in)at its thinnest point, the laptop can go wherever users do, while up to 2TB of high-speed PCIe Gen4 storage offers plenty of space for games and files.
Backing up this powerful hardware is state-of-the-art cooling technology. The laptop utilizes a triple-fan system, including two 5th Gen AeroBlade3D fans with 89 metal blades each. Acer’s Vortex Flow technology redirects the airflow those fans generate to critical components, while strategically-placed thermal foam, liquid-metal thermal grease on the CPU, and four heat pipes further improve cooling.
Content looks great on the Triton 500 SE’s 16-inch display. Gamers will appreciate the industry-leading WQXGA (2560×1600) panel’s 240Hz refresh rate and 3 ms response time, topped off with support from the frame-syncing power of NVIDIA G-SYNC technology.
