Choosing the right bit of hardware isn't easy. When it comes to gaming laptops, the sheer number of different choices out there can make that final decision a bit of a daunting one. With that in mind, the angle or reason to consider the Acer Predator Helios 500 is simple. Desktop-like performance and productivity over going ultrathin and portable.
With all the extra room under the hood, it’s here where the Helios 500 begins to showcase just how focused on performance that it is. The new Intel Core i9-8950H Processor coupled with NVME SSD storage for Windows 10 ensures productivity at desktop levels, and the higher-clocked NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 ensures that it features a card to match the 144Hz G-Sync compatible display. The model tested and specs listed here represented the revised Helios 500 that saw a local release late last year, where even though it doesn’t feature an NVIDIA RTX GPU, represents one of the more powerful gaming laptops currently available.
