Acer has launched two new convertible gaming laptops under its Predator Triton series at the ongoing CES 2019 show in Las Vegas. It comes with four different usage modes: Display mode for sharing the screen with friends during gaming sessions, Ezel mode for playing games on the touch screen, Notebook mode for traditional gaming scenarios, and Stand mode - effectively turning the Triton 900 into a tablet for gaming or using creator tools. The smaller Triton 500 will be more practical and affordable for most people looking for a portable gaming machine.
Other noteworthy specs include NVMe PCIe RAID 0 SSDs, up to 32GB of DDR4 memory and a 15.6-inch IPS display with 3ms response time, 144Hz refresh rates and support for Nvidia G-Sync. This is a fancy name for a hinge that lets the monitor swivel forward as well as recline.
Acer Swift 7, an honoree of the CES 2019 Innovation Award, brings in a lot of exciting features. (Righties typically use WASD keys for gaming, while lefties typically use a standalone number pad instead.) The only drawback is that the keys aren't separated, meaning that lefties won't have the tactile control of a true number pad.
Updated 12:15 p.m. PT: Corrected errors about the Predator Triton 700's clamshell design, the Predator Triton's weight (4.6 pounds) and the Predator Triton 900's touchpad, which sits to the right of the keyboard - not above it. Besides the RTX 2080 inside, the Triton 900 has an Intel i7 8750H CPU with 16 GB of RAM, and a pair of 512 GB NVMe SSDs in RAID0 for 1 TB of fast storage. Graphics options range from the GeForce RTX 2060 with 6GB of GDDR6 VRAM on the low end to an RTX 2080 Max-Q chip with 8GB of GDDR6 VRAM at the top end.
We clocked Predator Triton 700's glass touchpad at over 118 degrees during our testing. Both of these new gaming systems will feature Acer's4th Gen AeroBlade 3D metal fan thermal solution that Acer claimed increases airflow by 45 percent over competing solutions.
For surround sound audio experience, the laptop features Waves Maxx and Waves Nx technology with head tracking.
While the Triton 900 looks quite chunky by modern laptop standards, Acer says it's under one inch thick.
Users can also expect a PredatorSense mobile app later this year. It creates custom lighting effects that respond to actions within the game. And you really will need to save your pennies, as the Triton 900 will start at a whopping $3,999 when it arrives. But here's what we know so far.
