Gaming convertibles are few and far between, but Acer does make them with its Nitro 5 Spin, which is designed for casual gamers. Today, ahead of CES, the firm announced the Predator Triton 900, a premium convertible with high-end performance.
The Predator Triton 900 uses what Acer calls an Ezel Aero Hinge, which can flip, extend, or recline the display, which is a 17-inch 4K touchscreen. It's similar to HP's Spectre Folio, but without the leather and with a lot more power. That power comes in the form of Intel's Core i7-8850H CPU and Nvidia's GeForce RTX 2080 GPU.
It also features audio by Waves Maxx, up to 32GB DDR4 RAM, and it's just 23.75mm thin. While the Predator Triton 900 can be converted into a tablet and Acer did mention using creator tools, it didn't say anything about pen support.
“We’re excited that our new GeForce RTX 2080 GPU is helping Acer redefine gaming experiences on notebooks,” said Kaustubh Sanghani, General Manager, GeForce OEM at NVIDIA. "With breakthrough technologies including real time ray tracing and next-gen, and ultra-fast GDDR6 memory, gamers can confidently choose the Predator Triton 900 for a robust, feature rich gaming platform.”
Acer also unveiled the Predator Triton 500, which is a more traditional laptop. Also including a Core i7-8850H and RTX 2080 graphics with Max-Q, it has a 15.6-inch 1080p display with a 144Hz refresh rate. It's 17.9mm thin and weighs 4.6 pounds, so it's still much lighter than many gaming laptops.
