NVIDIA Advanced Optimus® & G-SYNC Technology
Through dynamic display switching, Advanced Optimus® improves battery life without impacting the immersive, tear-free, stutter-free gameplay of G-SYNC. The system will intelligently determine when apps need the dedicated GPU or integrated graphics.
TAKE IT WITH YOU
At just 19.9 mm, the easily portable, all-metal body is ready for travel and plenty of mayhem. With ample battery life, you'll have time to revel in victory as you drive your enemies before you or, should you be called upon to attend to work or run your studio.
Cooling comes first - which is why we've streamlined the Triton 500 SE with a triple-fan approach utilizing our 5th Gen AeroBlade 3D Fan Technology. We then refined this further with the wind-guiding optimization of Vortex Flow to keep airflow strong and temps low.
5th Gen AeroBladeTM 3D Fan
With 89 ultra-thin (0.08mm) blades and a wind guiding structure, the AeroBlade™ 3D fan’s bionic wing tip design increases air intake, while the wind guide draws in greater airflow with minimal turbulence.
Vortex Flow Design
Through strategically placed thermal foam and controlled paths, we are able to further optimize the airflow to increase overall cooling – reducing the surface temperature and delivering superior performance.
HEAR IT ALL
With the DTS® X: Ultra Audio, turn any pair of headphones or speakers into a high-end 360 degree surround sound system - enabling you to experience your favorite movies, music and games with real-world spatial sound.
LESS LATENCY, MORE VICTORY
With the Intel® Killer™ E3100 Ethernet Controller, Killer Wi-Fi 6 AX1650, and Control Center 2.0, you have all the tools you need to clear out the online competition. You deserve the low latency and reliable connection that only Killer networks can provide.
Offload photos via the SD™ 7.0 card reader and plug all your peripherals into the full range of USB 3.2 Gen 2, including either of the two incredibly fast Thunderbolt™ 4 USB-C ports - which support DisplayPort functionality and Power Delivery.
Give the 3-zone RGB keyboard a spin, pop open PredatorSense™ (via the ever-so convenient hotkey) and tailor it to your precise preferences. The custom utility app also allows you to monitor your system, overclock, create macros, and more.
For such a high price tag, I was expecting this laptop to be built at near Apple quality. However, that's just not the case, and many of the components feel cheap.
For instance, the screen seems to be too easily moved and I can foresee issues with the hinge in the future.
Additionally, and this may just be a bit nitpicky, but the power button is a key on the keyboard and I'm not a fan of this design.
Furthermore, the fingerprint scanner makes the pc feel dated and not up to par with the current trend of Microsoft Hello. It also gets in the way when using the mousepad, but it's more of a preference I suppose.
Lastly, the laptop is upgradeable but requires you to remove the entire motherboard, as the ram slots are located on the opposite side... Absolutely not worth the high price and I'll be returning and replacing with the Omen 17.

Best gamer and designer laptop in slim chassis

The Predator Triton 500 RTX 3070 overall is an excellent laptop for gamers and designers. With Nvidia's RTX 3070 8GB VRAM, you can set the laptop for 2K gaming with ultra-high settings. The most impressive part is the 2560x1600 2K screen with 165hz 3ms response time, With the RTX 3070 model, which also supports G-SYNC plus Advanced Optimus feature which is completely MISSING on the RTX 3060 bade model. The laptop is a full aluminum build, which is a very solid feel but on the heavy weight side.
