The Acer Predator Helios 500 is a behemoth. . An eightth-gen core i9 processor and a GTX 1070 GPU packing, it does not have to worry when it comes to gaming performance. But even after seeing, he has an exterior appearance of a machine that is not dirty here. This 17-inch laptop is a real seven for it, and there is a lot of base that is not a port. Once you actually fund it by money – and we really run through eleven experiments with our experiences. This machine is amazingly cold and calm.

Design

The Des East exceeds the surface design than the Helio 500 maximum vent. There is a blue gray view alongside the sides and behind it, and also a warning label, “Do not get rid of the hot surface – alert -“. Amazingly, I can not guess the heat intensity. This requires a lot of cooling. vents, but above it is that laptops are almost never more frequent. Lid features are well, embroidery pronunciation sides and in the right between a blue and steel presenter logo.

Once you open the Helios 500, it looks very little. There is a nice set of black inside, and a comfortable shadow instead of blue. While the keyboard has featured in the RJG light, before default, it is a cool blue light, which is hidden under the switch and the big power by the Dalton and Trackpad. I did not use RGB in my light, because the awareness of the blue and steel theme feels a little bit, but if you want it there.

8.3 Weighing in weight and 16.9 x 11.7 x 1.5 inches, the helios 500 can be the biggest in its rivals, but more powerful power is given, I will forgive the pain that I around Take the last two weeks

Display

Predator Heavyweight’s 17.3 inches 2160p (4K) display features that run on 144 hz with Nigeria’s harmony. While the size and resolution of the display is very good, the color depth drops slightly. This anti-greasy solution can be used, but I just had to wash the colors slightly on something like this, as someone had run a matched instragram filter on the entire display. Examination with Wicher 3: Wild Hunt, Domom, and Hessen genocide, the display remains constant, but colors never run dynamic because they have to be. This is not a problem overall, but this game makes a much more silent color palette like DOOM looks quite slow, while more color titles like Dinner 3 will never reach its full visual capability. .

 


It is said that the 144hz synchronization display is both online and offline, best to play shooters, and works well for health purposes. In the DOOM heelspoon explosion was incredibly satisfactory on this display, even if the colors were not allowed to do anything.

Keyboard and track pad

The Acer Predator Helios 500 is one of the best boards ever used on a laptop. I do not speak lightly. As a person has used more than a decade of laptops, I am very sensitive to keyboard idiosyncrasies and Helios 500 keyboard is absolutely nails. Switch with a decent travel time, without losing the flow in individual keypresses.


There are five shortcut buttons in the keyboard which are the most useful functions, while default on the most useful functions: CPU overclock, GPU overclock, fan speed, PredatorSense and sticky keys. The label ‘P’ allows a sixth button to switch shortcuts to two sets of sets, which means 5 keys are actually 15 potential shortcuts shortcuts.


Track pad encryption is super smooth with mouse buttons, which is also clicked satisfactory with keyboard ratio, response ratio. See also the usual windows 10 signals and shortcuts on the trackpad that we are currently viewing.

Performance

That’s exactly where fun. An overclockable NVIDIA GeForce GTX with 8 GB VRAM is coming with 1070, Helios 500 is almost uninterrupted on frame framerate without any witcher 3 and Grand Theft Auto V. Running Witcher 3 such as defective GPU Strangers worked short. There was complete satisfaction at 1080p. The tomb raider adds 55 concrete / second concrete pump to ultra settings, while Batman: Arkhim Knight has roasted it on the same respectable 90.

Running at the top 1080p resolution, framerate with 30 frames / falling on the second ballpark you should go for a 4K resolution. However, you could still tinker easily with more taxing settings like SSAO and shadows to get up to 40-50 ballparks. It is more than the acceptable tradable for high-end gaming on a laptop.

On the 3D mark ice storm unlimited test, Helio 500 scored 187976, which it puts well above the separate R5. The Helio 500 is also ready for VR, but we could not get the opportunity to test it.

Even outside the gaming, the core i9 stands unshaken in most stress situations. I did this thing with the 40th Google Chrome tab, while running Windows running several windows as well as 1080p YouTube while running Netflix, and laptops just noise. It’s not a mess around 2.9 GHz processor, and it’s the fact that you can watch more than that even though it’s still poor.

Audio

It’s sad that where things come and end. Monsters such as a laptop, I well-deficient speakers on it. It’s amazing because it packs two speakers and a subfiffer pack. The problem here is that the speakers will fire, making the audio more and more, by doing wonderful work volumes. Put a laptop on a tight stand or just pick it up, make the audio better.


Separately to this strange place, the speakers called themselves tiny, which together with the suburfers, produce a sound, which is only on the top of the bass and the trumpet, there is no harmony between the two no. Long story is short, for a long time it only ends in the sound of incredible noise. This is particularly dangerous when you are in the battlefield of the game 1 battle to hear the sounds of firing and step to jump on your opponents. It’s not great, and I’ve proposed a great pair of great speaker or headphones for this laptop.

Battery


It’s not too good, though you’re getting out of it so it’s so annoying. This is a full laptop of a laptop so it is obvious that it is very hungry. He gave me almost 2 hours and 30 minutes of web surfing on WiFi on the default shine, and this number is ever lower if you watch or watch the video. Gaming on the battery is a complete result and you should not even do this.


Software


Helios 500, like Acer Predator Laptop, comes with the PredatorSense app, which lets you monitor your GPU and CPU usage, manage backlights, overclocking management, hackcase, control fan, and basically To get the best gaming performance, you need to do so that your quarter is also applied out of your laptop so that you can customize any synced features. Allows to

With every bit of software, you get a ton of bonus ware on Net Security, Netflix (which is significantly lesser as web version), though Windows puts emphasis on it and scissors crush soda saga. Thank you, as soon as you can change your laptop, install it, so it’s not all bad.
