Gaming laptops are bigger business than ever before. Which is why Acer’s Predator line-up is moving to 10th Gen Intel Core architecture for its 2020 laptop range.
The Acer Predator Helios 700 (which has a sliding keyboard USP), Predator Helios 300, and Predator Triton 300 (which aims at strong specs for an affordable price) now offer 10th Gen Intel Core i9 processors at the top-end of the spec, while graphics are available up to Nvidia RTX 2080 Super graphics.

The range will also offer 240Hz and 144Hz display options, bringing the super-fast refresh rate to the laptop form.
Perhaps most interesting of all, however, is that the Predator Helios 700 will debut Acer’s PowerGem thermal cooling technology – a new material technology that was shown off at IFA 2019 to adsorb excess heat.
