Acer announced its latest Predator Triton series laptops today; the Predator Triton 17 X and Triton 14. Both all-CNC metal designs pack the latest 13th Gen Intel CPUs combined with Nvidia's GeForce RTX 40 series GPUs while also providing Mini LED panel options with immersive 16:10 aspect ratios.

While the Triton 17X sounds impressive, the Predator Triton 14, packed with a 13th Gen Intel Core i7-13700H and an Nvidia GeForce RTX 4050 GPU for under $1,500 is a welcome affordable option among the numerous hyper-expensive RTX 40 series gaming laptops we've seen.
Let's take a closer look at the Predator Triton 17 X and Predator Triton 14.
The Predator Triton 17 X
The all-new sleek and powerful Predator Triton 17 X pairs a sophisticated minimalist design with game-ready hardware.

Acer paired the Triton's powerful components with a state-of-the-art thermal solution to cool the thin gaming laptop components under pressure. The thermal design features a vapor chamber with a compressed cooling system, allowing it to handle the most demanding game in its sleek form factor. Acer uses Vortex Flow technology that employs a triple-fan cooling system that includes two custom-engineered 5th Gen AeroBlade 3D fans.
