Keeping it cool during heavy gaming sessions
Even at 19.9mm thin, the Triton 300 SE stays cool under pressure with its dual-fan cooling system that includes the latest 5th Gen Aero Blade Fan and Acer’s Vortex Flow technology.
This generation’s all-metal Aero Blade Fan features wingtips that increase air intake and an innovative wind guide that minimalises turbulence and redirects airflow to critical components, resulting in a 10% performance increase over the previous generation.
Acer’s Vortex Flow is a design concept that serves to create an aerodynamic flow inside the chassis, consisting of heat pipes, exhaust vents, and a pair of strategically placed fans that enhance cooling on the CPU, GPU, and other critical components, ultimately increasing performance.
Liquid metal thermal grease provides higher thermal conductivity, it is designed for a more efficient heat transfer – further optimizing CPU performance.
Switch between integrated and discrete graphics at will
With the included MUX switch technology, gamers can disable the integrated graphics for an increase in performance in games
Kill The Lag
Running on the latest Microsoft Windows 11, the laptop also comes with the Intel® KillerTM Wi-Fi 6E AX1675i Wi-Fi chip that makes use of a less crowded 6GHz wireless spectrum for speedy connectivity with less interference. The machine also offers plenty of connectivity options including a ThunderboltTM 4 Type-C port with support for DisplayPort and power delivery, two USB 3.2 Gen 2 ports, and an HDMI 2.1 port. With these display ports, users can connect to three additional external displays in 4K resolution.
Battery, Keyboard, and Audio
With up to 11 hours of battery life, users can squeeze in a bit of study between gaming sessions or hang out in their favourite stream for a while after a hard day’s work. A backlit 3-zone RGB keyboard enhances gaming, while DTS:X Ultra audio provides a boost in-game by providing crisp and well-balanced sound to help players pinpoint where an enemy is hiding.
The Ultimate Tool & Turbo Key
The PredatorSense key is the ultimate customisation tool for gamers who want full control over their gaming rig such as controlling the cooling fans and overclocking for gamers who want that extra boost in performance.
