Acer Predator Helios 300 gaming laptop goes official in India
Taiwanese PC giant Acer is bringing a new gaming laptop to the Indian market. The Acer Predator Helios 300 gaming laptop arrives as the company’s next big offer for the competitive market in the INR 1,19,999 price segment. The new laptop brings compelling specs and is sold in Acer’s online and offline stores as well as on Flipkart. Interestingly, the Predator Helios 300 standards are one of the cheapest VR compatible machines you can buy in India. The device has reached global markets in recent months and is one of the best laptops available with the new 11th generation Intel processor inside.
Acer Predator Helios 300 Specifications
As mentioned above, the new laptop comes with an 11th generation Intel chipset, in this case the i7. One of the biggest advantages of this laptop is that it comes with NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 30 series graphics cards. The laptops also come with up to 32GB of DDR4 RAM and have stunning IPS displays with up to 240Hz refresh rate. The display also offers a 3ms response time and offers 3D simulated surround sounds thanks to the DTX-X Ultra audio tuning. The Taiwanese firm has also equipped the laptop with its 4th generation AeroBlade 3D fans to keep thermal control.
The laptop weighs 2.3 kg and is 22.9 mm thick. As it ships with the RTX 30 series graphics cards, it is more than ready for ray tracing technology. The processors inside have the second generation Ray Tracing cores and the third generation Tensor cores. These are intended to generate graphics for recent AAA game titles that support ray tracing. The laptop also has a Killer E2600 Ethernet controller and version 2.0 of Acer’s Control Center.
When it comes to connectivity and interface, the laptop comes with an HDMI 2.0 port, a miniDP port, and support for the USB 3.2 standard. Plus, it comes with a custom 40zone RGB keyboard with Acer’s Predator font and transparent concave keys for the WASD keys. The keyboard also comes with two Turbo and PredatorSense keys. These are shortcuts for some features exclusive to Acer.
Users can choose between variants with RTX 3060 or RTX 3070 graphics cards. The latter will certainly make the set more expensive. If you’re looking for a cutting edge gaming laptop, the Acer Predator Helios 300 is definitely one of the best choices out there. Especially when it brings two hard to find graphics cards.
Acer says laptops will be available on different channels. However, availability will be low at this time. After all, there is a recent increase in Covid-19 cases in India. Due to recent lockdown policies, the company will face supply issues.
