Power, performance, ports, and presentation: Acer delivers on all fronts with the Predator Triton Neo 16. The next laptop to take the Predator Triton moniker is in no danger of sullying its good name and adopts some cutting edge components to ensure it’s up there with the best of them.
Beneath the hood of this gaming gem lies one of Intel’s latest Core Ultra processors, available in Ultra 9, Ultra 7, and Ultra 5 configurations. These processors are big on performance and efficiency, with a new NPU (Neural Processing Unit) lightening the load of your CPU and GPU when it comes to complex tasks involving machine learning or AI.
This allows the Intel Core Ultra processor housed within to more effectively manage its workload to deliver maximum performance at all times. Not only that, your GPU won’t be busy shouldering any additional number crunching either, meaning you can squeeze the utmost of visual potential out of the Predator Triton’s impressive Nvidia GeForce RTX 40-Series graphics including the DLSS 3.5 AI-optimized enhancements available for games and creator applications.
If you’re looking for the right gaming laptop to tackle a burgeoning and ever-demanding Steam library then the Predator Triton Neo 16 is more than worthy of a spot on your shortlist. Not only is the Predator Triton Neo a fantastic choice for tackling even the latest AAA titles, but they’ll look incredible on this laptop’s 3.2K panel.
The 16-inch display has been Calman-Verified to produce true-to-life cinematic colors to help deliver vivid and accurate pictures at all times. Not only that, but thanks to a generous 165Hz refresh rate the action on screen will be buttery-smooth, sharp, and tear-free thanks to support for Nvidia’s Advanced Optimus and G-Sync tech.
