Acer Predator Helios 500

Be one with the cold. This 144Hz1-fueled machine is cooled by the exquisitely designed and deadly efficient AeroBlade 3D fans.

Power your system with the latest processors from Intel® or AMD. Each can handle whatever task you throw at it, and then some.

The GPU. The source of any competent, powerful gaming machine. With next-gen solutions from NVIDIA® and AMD, this source is overflowing.

FORMIDABLE FORM

17.3" IPS DISPLAY

Framed in obsidian black, the color accurate IPS screen stares right back at you. A perfect view for those late-night gaming sessions. Question is, 4K or Full HD?

FULL HD AT 144HZ

Go the full HD route and you’ll be part of the crowd that enjoys an incredibly fast refresh rate for gameplay that is seamless, fluid and fierce.

THAT 4K FEEL

So, you prefer pushing image quality to its extremes. Fortunately, 4K will do just that. Say goodbye to anti-aliasing and hello to naturally crisp graphics.

2X AEROBLADE 3D FANS

Ultrathin and all metal, two AeroBlade™ fans keep your GPU/CPU at a nice, cool temp. Listen closely as they whisper, “game on, my friend. Game on.”

5X HEAT PIPES

Five heat pipes distribute and rid the Helios 500 of its excess heat. With great power, comes great heat—comes incredible cooling.

ELEVATED TO EXHAUST

Four exhausts and two intakes quickly cycle in cool air and expel the heat through a unique design that allows the laptop to be slightly elevated.

COOLBOOST

When the going gets hot, CoolBoost gets going. Just activate it and the fan speeds increase based on generated heat, keeping critical areas continually cooled.

RGB BACKLIT KEYBOARD

The four-zoned RGB gives you a plethora of colors to play with (to the tune of 16.8 million) as well as five dedicated hotkeys that you can adjust to your needs.

NEVER MISS A PRESS

Anti-ghosting for 182 of some of the most commonly used keystrokes will save you from the potential pitfall of an unregistered press.

A TOUCH OF PRECISION

While you’ll undoubtedly prefer a mouse when gaming, the blue-lit Precision Touchpad offers up a more traditional approach to laptop use.

3X MONITOR SUPPORT

Why settle for one display when you can use three. Simply plug them in via the HDMI 2.0, DisplayPort and/or USB Type C connections and you’re ready to roll.

THESE PORTS CAN DO WHAT!?

ThunderBolt 3. They’re fast (40Gbps), they’re useful (single-cable docking) and they’re powerful (literally—up to 100W each). And this is just the start.

FURIOUS POWER

GPU - IT DRIVES THE GAME

Behind every great gaming machine there’s a divine GPU, hard at work. With next-gen options from both NVIDIA® and AMD, your detailed gaming environments await.

NVIDIA GEFORCE GTX 1070

Take on today’s most challenging, graphics-intensive games without missing a beat with a GeForce GTX 1070-powered notebook, driven by the groundbreaking NVIDIA Pascal architecture.

AMD RADEON RX VEGA56

Radeon RX Vega56 cards provide a complete enthusiast class gaming experience with powerful performance paired with the latest display technologies constructed for serious gamers.

NVIDIA G-SYNC

NVIDIA G-SYNC calms the storm of fast-paced gaming woes by eliminating screen tearing. With your G-SYNC Ready laptop, you’re good to go.

RADEON FREESYNC TECHNOLOGY

Put an end to choppy gameplay and broken frames with fluid, artifact-free performance at virtually any framerate.

CPU PROCESSING WITH A PUNCH

You might be streaming, editing or what many of us would do with a machine like this—gaming. With options from Intel and AMD, you’ll need a CPU that doesn’t hold back.

This 8th Gen Intel Core i9-8950HK processor can be overclocked and utilizes up to six cores and up to 12 threads to make all your CPU-intensive dreams come true.

The AMD Ryzen 7 2700 processor—complete with up to eight cores and up to 16 threads—blazes through even the most task-heavy game sessions.

16GB DDR4 DOMINANCE

You might start at 16GB but feel free to crank it up to 64. The question remains—how to find enough tasks to make use of it all!

STOW IT—IN AN SSD

Fast systems need fast drives. Avoid potential bottlenecks by equipping your Helios 500 with up to two PCIe NVME SSDs in Raid 0 and up to 2TB of HDD storage.

OFF AND IN UPGRADES

Feel the need for speed by upgrading memory or storage? Just make your way to bottom of the laptop to discover the easily removable bottom cover.

2.1 SPEAKERS AND SUBWOOFER

Enhance and empower what you hear with some incredible tools from Waves MaxxAudio® to get the most from the 2.1 sound system. Goodbye mediocre, hello marvelous!

TRUEHARMONY

TrueHarmony™ utilizes a unique design for more accurate sound reproduction and fuller-bodied audio. Headphones or not, you’ll like what you hear.

WAVES NX

Designed for headphone use, Waves Nx recreates what you hear for a 360° surround sound experience, whether it is movies, games, VR—you name it.

Acer Predator Helios 500 (GTX 1070, i9-8950HK) Laptop Review by Benjamin Herzig from 09/06/2018
Ultra HD gaming device. This hunk of a laptop enters the second round: We already reviewed the lower-priced version of the Acer Predator Helios 500 not so long ago - now here comes the sequel. Is the expensive high-end version able to convince us? Find out in this detailed review!... Read full review ...

Acer Predator Helios 500 review by Michelle Rae Uy from 12/12/2018
The Acer Predator Helios 500 is a beast in almost every sense, from its powerful engine that can handle any game to its massive size. If you’re just looking for a monstrous mobile PC gaming machine, this laptop will impress. However, if you’re looking for a more immersive experience, be prepared to shell out more cash for peripherals.... Read full review ...

Acer Predator Helios 500 Review: Keeping Its Cool by Andrew E. Freedman from 30/07/2018
Acer is going big with the Predator Helios 500. Really big. The laptop ($1,999.99 to start, $2,499.99 as tested) is a 17.3-inch desktop replacement, but it’s that space that keeps it so cool, even with a powerful Intel Core i9-8950HK and Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070. It also has a one-click overclocking solution to turn up performance. But on some benchmarks, the CPU scores were lower than competitors with similar specs, and its display, while not unusably dim, lacks enough luminosity to give some gamers pause....

Acer Predator Helios 500 Review by Rami Tabari from 03/08/2018
You better cover yourself with some mud, because this Predator is so mighty that it would make Arnold Schwarzenegger run the other way. For $2,499 (starting at $1,999), the Helios 500 packs a beastly 8th Gen Core i9 processor and GTX 1070 GPU for powerful gaming performance. And when you're letting the speakers rip while burning through games on those especially clicky keys, this machine will remain cold and calculated, just as the name suggests. Yeah, the display could be more colorful, but overall, the Helios 500 is a winner.... Read full review ...

Acer Predator Helios 500 review by Luke Larsen from 09/02/2018
Luke Larsen Luke Larsen @lalarsen11 Posted on 09.2.18 - 12:00PM PST Many of today’s popular gaming laptops, like the Razer Blade, seem almost ashamed of their heritage. Yea, they can game, but they seek to blend in with a sleek, elegant exterior and thin profile. Acer’s Predator Helios 500, though, lets its freak flag fly. It’s unapologetic as a gaming laptop, both in look and capabilities.

Acer knows its target audience and offers two configurations of this 17-inch behemoth, starting at the $2,000 base model. Our $2,500 review unit came with an Intel Core i9-8950HK processor, a GeForce GTX 1070 graphics card, 16GB of RAM, and a 512GB SSD. If you can’t spend that much, the Helios 300 has a GTX 1060 and starts at just $1,500.

Whatever configuration you opt for, Acer has brought together the right ingredients to cook a meaty gut-bomb of a gaming feast.... Read full review ...
