If you are looking for the best priced gaming laptop and was wondering how well the Acer Predator Triton 900 i7-9750H RTX 2080 Mobile 32GB RAM 2.0TB SSD 4K can run today’s latest games, then you are in the right place. We will be focusing this review on exploring how the Acer Predator Triton 900 i7-9750H RTX 2080 Mobile 32GB RAM 2.0TB SSD 4K performs against the most demanding games around and really getting a better understanding of this laptop’s price to performance today.
Is the Acer Predator Triton 900 i7-9750H RTX 2080 Mobile 32GB RAM 2.0TB SSD 4K good as a gaming laptop? Excellent
Processor - The Core i7-9750H 6-Core 2.6GHz is an excellent gaming CPU for 2020. Loaded up with plenty of processor cores, this CPU has 6, which is excellent for AAA gaming that wants extra cores for processing.
Graphics Card - A GeForce RTX 2080 Mobile graphics card that is housed in this laptop is excellent for modern AAA gaming during 2020. This GPU comes with 8GB, which is excellent and plenty powerful to meet the VRAM requirements of modern games.
System Memory - The 32GB of RAM found in this laptop is an excellent quantity to deal with the requirements of 2020 AAA gaming.
Screen Size - The 17.3" panel found in this laptop we would consider an excellent size for modern 2020 AAA games, and the sort of screen size more serious gamers would be looking for.
Refresh Rate - I personally wouldnt consider getting a gaming laptop with a screen panel that had a refresh rate of 60Hz. The refresh rate number is the number of times an image can be displayed to the screen by the laptop's own screen. So if I had paid more money for a good graphics card and CPU and RAM then even though the hardware might be able to get 150FPS on Ultra settings in the latest games, the laptop screen would only display 60FPS. The more FPS capable of being displayed to screen the smoother and sharper the response of the game you are playing. An ideal minimum refresh rate amount would be around 144Hz for a great gaming laptop, but you can certainly get some with even higher refresh rates than that. You can get this laptop with 60Hz refresh rate which, for gaming, is an ok refresh rate.

No two laptops are the same. But one of the primary gaming laptop components is of course the graphics card. Often a slightly weaker mobile solution, when compared to its desktop equivalent. Today we will consider this laptop's hardware, when running modern popular and sometimes demanding games, like Cyberpunk 2077, Assassins Creed: Valhalla and Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War which will help us know if this mobile graphics card and the overall laptop hardware is considered a good price to performance point. We consider it running these titles at its native 4K resolution, and at Ultra video settings. A first point of reference is seeing how many the mobile gpu, a GeForce RTX 2080 Mobile found in this laptop, can run of today's 500 most demanding games. In particular it would seem that it can currently run 492 at recommended graphics requirements and then 500 games at their min specs.
