Acer Predator Helios 300 Gaming Laptop Review

Acer’s decision to pair an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 with a powerful, 12th-generation Intel chip might seem a bit spontaneous. And with a price starting at £1,686, it certainly gave us a shock — we don’t tend to recommend RTX 3060 laptops for much more than £1,000 these days.

Much to my delight, the Predator Helios 300 (PH317-56-79UB) I was sent comes with an impressive 140W GPU tucked under the hood, and it’s one that does a much better job of complementing the 14-core, 20-thread Intel CPU Acer selected from Intel’s 12th generation series. While the Predator Helios 300’s deadly hardware tag team didn’t quite convince me of its assigned price, the addition of a fast, high-capacity SSD, 16GB of dual-channel DDR5 memory, and a smooth 1440p display makes the configuration more impressive. tempting for the price.
