The Acer Predator Triton 500 PT516-51s-77BS was versus the competition
The Acer Predator Triton 500 PT516-51s-77BS is currently on display at promotion in baker And it ranks as one of the only companies in its class to offer such a high-frequency, high-resolution display with such true colors with Thunderbolt connectivity and SSD storage at such a high capacity, all under Windows 11.
If the Acer Predator Triton 500 PT516-51s-77BS doesn’t meet all of your criteria, in our gaming laptop guide you’ll find other configurations for gaming on a similar budget. For the same budget, choose the model that has the most powerful graphics card, and it will have the greatest performance impact.
Chassis, Connectors, and Display for Acer Predator Triton 500 PT516-51s-77BS
It has a relatively elegant look in its light silver design with angular lines that can be opened at a full 180-degree angle for a gaming laptop that adopts its icons nonetheless.
The connectivity built into this gaming laptop is good, consisting of 2 USB-C Thunderbolt 4, Bluetooth 5.1 and Wi-Fi ax modules (More efficient and newer than Wi-Fi ac) to connect and connect wirelessly from a distance, a practical HDMI video output to easily connect this computer to a TV or monitor, for example, Ethernet and audio ports or two USB 3.0 ports (compatible with USB 2.0) ensuring transfers 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if you connect USB 3.0 peripherals.
The chiclet keyboard can obviously be backlit, making it easier to discern its keys in the dark.
But it ignores the numeric keypad while this function is standard from 15 inches to make it easier to enter numbers, which some may regret.
Gamers and creators will care about the monitor because it improves fluidity in games with a refresh rate of 165Hz, higher than the standard 60Hz. In addition, thanks to the DCI-P3 and IPS specifications, the screen displays colors that are more accurate than average as well as large vertical and horizontal viewing angles. As it adopts 2.5K definition superior to Full HD, the screen is also well suited for HD content while its 16/10th format is more comfortable in height than the classic 16/9. Thanks to the anti-reflective treatment, the screen also provides better visibility than a glossy panel in a bright environment (eg outdoors).
Performance and autonomy for the Acer Predator Triton 500 PT516-51s-77BS
The Acer Predator Triton 500 PT516-51s-77BS can appeal to those looking for a versatile, high-performance laptop for gaming and creativity.
It features dual SSD storage configured in RAID with a total capacity of 2TB, twice the average, which is especially valuable for housing multiple files, programs, and games.
In addition, SSD offers many advantages over a hard disk: greater shock resistance, silent operation, lower power consumption but also faster speed.
An SSD actually provides better fluidity and responsiveness on a daily basis compared to a simple hard disk. Thanks to the SSD, the operations of games/programs are much faster, especially with processing and start/stop, and you can access your online game cards faster.
The SSD of course supports the dedicated graphics card built into the games very well. Here we find an advanced GeForce RTX 3070 for ray tracing with an NVIDIA Ampere architecture capable of running modern and greedy games, although 2.5K requires more computing from the GPU than Full HD, resulting in lower frames per second.
The GeForce RTX 3070 will also be of interest to creators because it speeds up processing under GPU computing power, such as Adobe Premiere / Photoshop or Sony Vegas.
In practice, the GeForce RTX 3070 is activated automatically and in real time, by NVIDIA Optimus technology depending on the tasks being performed.
Optimus prefers the Intel Iris Xe in-process solution as much as possible despite its more modest benefits as it is energy efficient which enhances autonomy.
In this regard, this gaming laptop performs very well as it can last around 7 hours on battery in light usage.
However, the GeForce RTX 3070 is powered by Optimus for graphics processing that is too heavy for Iris Xe. With one or the other, it is of course possible to view photos and videos.

Integrated directly into the processor is the Intel Iris Xe, a Tiger Lake Octo Core i7-11800H that delivers comprehensive power capable of satisfying demanding users, along with 16GB of RAM.
This core ensures much faster processing than a quad / hexa core processor and 8GB of DDR4 memory, the difference being particularly noticeable in areas that require CPU and RAM resources that take advantage of multiple cores, such as video editing, image editing or 3D rendering. .
Finally, in the case of extreme stress (like games and treats), this versatile, creator-oriented gaming laptop is heard and heated up with its versatility and greedy components on board.
If necessary, a well-ventilated brace may be used to reduce temperatures (Remember to check the dimensions carefully!).
