Acer announces Predator Triton 700

The Predator Triton 700’s aluminum chassis houses a 15.6-inch FHD IPS display and best-in-class technologies for a thin yet powerful, compromise-free gaming notebook.

Acer unveiled the Predator Triton 700 gaming notebook, measuring 18.9 mm (.74 inch), 2.6kg (5.7 pound) in an aluminum chassis that houses a 15.6-inch FHD IPS display.

As the first of the new ultrathin Predator Triton gaming notebook series, its black chassis features a minimalist design, with straight contours and angular front corners. A Corning Gorilla Glass plate above the keyboard serves as a window into the notebook’s cooling system, showcasing the AeroBlade 3D Fan and five heat pipes, and also functions as a touchpad.

Powering the unit within is a standard-voltage 7th Generation Intel Core processor, NVIDIA GeForce 10-Series graphics, two NVMe PCIe SSDs in RAID 0 configuration and up to 32GB of DDR4 2400MHz memory.

For immersive gaming experience, the VR-ready Predator Triton 700 offers bright visuals on a 15.6-inch FHD IPS display with NVIDIA G-SYNC support for connecting to an external monitor. Acer TrueHarmony delivers immersive audio, while Skype for Business Certification ensures lag-free conversations.

Rounding out the notebook’s features are Killer DoubleShot Pro networking and Thunderbolt 3 connectivity, which provides speeds up to 40 Gbps and supports dual 4K video output.

The Predator Triton 700 also includes two USB 3.0 ports (featuring power-off USB charging), one USB 2.0 port, an HDMI 2.0 port, one DisplayPort connector and a Gigabit Ethernet port for those preferring a hard-wired connection. Networking is powered by Killer DoubleShot Pro technology.

There is a mechanical keyboard, and the keys are RGB backlit and can be individually programmed.

PredatorSense software enables gamers to control and customize the Predator Triton 700’s vitals from one central interface, including lighting, hotkeys, fan control and general system monitoring. The Triton’s dual fan system is powered by Acer’s proprietary AeroBlade 3D Fans with ultra-thin metal blades to keep the device running cool.
