Gaming performance

It must be said that with such a super-level configuration, no one game can make it difficult to get the Triton 500, even the latest games that have just been released in the first months of 2019. After installing the game Devil May Cry 5 and adjusting the setting to Ultra with the refresh rate of 144Hz along with using PredatorSense, the results are as follows:

- Frame rate is always 60 fps, not torn or torn. Because the Triton 500 is equipped with GTX 2070, Gsync technology is also present, and the result is that the game image is extremely smooth, including during a fight between a bunch of monsters at a time or in extremely beautiful cutscenes.

- In the first 90 minutes of the game with Ultra configuration, do not turn on PredatorSense, the device has a warming phenomenon. Touching the lower part of the touchpad and the speaker above, the speaker part gets hotter. The measured temperature at this time is 80 degrees C in the speaker section.

- Continue playing the game for 90 minutes and this time turn on PredatorSense to control the temperature of the machine, resulting in a lot of reduction thanks to Acer's exclusive 4th generation AeroBlade 3D cooling technology. If you select Max RPM in PredatorSense, the temperature drops even more, but in return, you will experience the noise it causes.
