Acer's Predator Triton 900 is an R85k convertible gaming laptop

Acer unveils new Predator Triton 900 convertible gaming notebook

With an interesting cantilevered hinged design, the new $4,000 Predator Triton 900 comes equipped with a 17-inch 4K display, eighth-gen Intel Core i7 processors and Nvidia's GeForce RTX 2080 GPU series.

At CES this week Acer has unveiled a new gaming laptop in the form of the Acer Predator Triton 900 which is equipped with a unique hinge system designed by Acer called the "Ezel Aero Hinge". The Predator Triton 900 is easily adjusted to be a tablet or a traditional laptop.

The rest of the specs remain the same as the Predator Nitron 900. It offers with 15.6-inch full HD IPS touch-screen display.

There was only one problem - Acer couldn't show us them switched on when we saw them because the Nvidia graphics - RTX 2080 - hadn't yet been announced. "With breakthrough technologies including real time ray tracing and next-gen, and ultra-fast GDDR6 memory, gamers can confidently choose the Predator Triton 900 for a robust, feature-rich gaming platform". The smaller Triton 500 will be more practical and affordable for most people looking for a portable gaming machine. The middle Triton 500 supports G-Sync on the display and offers an RTX 2080 with Max-Q design that is also overclockable. One model that is listed with just an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 unfortunately will not support G-Sync.

Additionally, the laptop supports 4th Gen AeroBlade 3D metal fans for an increase in airflow by 45% and the Coolboost technology to avoid overheating during high usage. It is just 0.70 inches thick and weighs 4.1 pounds. These include controlling the fan speed, lighting, audio modes and processor clock speeds. The smartphone app will apparently be capable of overclocking the systems as well, though we question how wise it is to create a smartphone app to overclock your PC.

Unfortunately, as impressive as the machine's construction and hardware specifications are, the Acer Predator Triton 900 comes with a hefty price. It will come at a starting price of US$3,999 which roughly converts to around Rs, 2,79,300.

The Acer Predator Triton 900 will be available in South Africa from June 2019, and will be priced at R84 999.
