Even PC gamers will get a nice treat, with four AMD 7000 series desktop GPUs. Let’s cover all of these offerings in more detail for you!

Just like with the Acer Swift and Aspire laptops announced at CES 2024, these gaming laptops come with AI Tensor Cores, Copilot, and even a dedicated Copilot key in the keyboard.

Additionally, these come with very powerful specs meant to take on any game. You can set it up with up to a 14th-generation Intel Core i9 14900HX processor, as much as 32GB of RAM, up to an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 GPU, and even improved mechanical keyboards.

The displays are also quite gorgeous, featuring WQXGA, Mini LED panels with 250Hz refresh rates. These can also cover 100% of the DCI-P3 color spectrum, making them very color-accurate.

The Acer Predator Helios 16 and 18 offer the best the company has to offer, but they can be a bit pricey. Those looking for high-quality gaming performance at slightly more reasonable price point should look ad the Predator Helios Neo series, which offers variants at 16 inches and 18 inches.

Those can also be configured with up to an Intel Core i9 4900HX chip, as much as 32GB of RAM, and up to an NVIDIA
GeForce RTX 4070 GPU. You will still get a WQXG definition on the display, as well as 240Hz refresh rates. And while display specs are cut down a bit, you still get 100% of the DCI-P3 color spectrum.

While that’s less than the higher-end options above, this is still a very capable computer. And the display is still pretty nice, offering a QHD resolution with 165Hz refresh rates, as well as support for 100% of the DCI-P3 color spectrum.
