These laptops are made for “Extreme” Gamers and the prices are very high for budget gamers. Only the enthusiasts can buy these and the pricing starts from Rs 199,999 which is roughly around $3000 USD. The Helios 500 laptop is a thick and heavy gaming laptop which comes with proper cooling and desktop equivalent components. The first variant comes with up to Intel Core i9 8950HK and a GTX 1070 8GB graphics card while the other variant will come with up to Ryzen 7 2700 and an RX Vega 56 GPU.
Acer has also announced another version with an Intel Core i7 processor but that is yet to hit the market. The one with i9 processor should be available on the official Acer stores right now. The price of the other variant with the AMD processor is not announced yet but it should be announced soon as the laptop has been officially launched. As far as the specs go, the laptop will come with a 17.3-inch IPS display with either 4K resolution or with a 1080p resolution accompanied by 144Hz refresh rate for a smooth gaming experience. It will also be equipped with the Nvidia G-Sync for a tear-free gameplay.
The laptop is designed to perform cooler with the help of Acer’s proprietary Aeroblade 3D metal fans and 5 copper heat pipes to dissipate the heat effectively. As the i9 processor and GTX 1070 pull a lot of power, you should expect a lot of heat coming out of the laptop. By implementing the cooling technique properly, this laptop will run cooler for a long time.
Chandrahas Panigrahi, CMO and Consumer Business Head, Acer India said, “The demand for our Predator series has been phenomenal, hence we have expanded the Helios gaming notebook line to provide our gamers with extreme performance on the go. With top of the line processors, graphics card and advanced cooling with custom control for ultimate gaming the Predator Helios 500 represent the epitome of laptop gaming,”.
