Is the Acer Predator Triton 900 i7-9750H RTX 2080 Mobile 32GB RAM 1.0TB SSD 4K good as a gaming laptop? Excellent
Processor - A Core i7-9750H 6-Core 2.6GHz CPU that is housed in this laptop is excellent for modern AAA gaming during 2020. The processor in this laptop has 6 cores, which makes it excellent for modern gamers, minimising the risk of throttling game processes due to a lack of available cores.
Graphics Card - With the GeForce RTX 2080 Mobile graphics card this is an excellent gaming GPU for 2020 AAA gaming This GPU has 8GB of VRAM. This is excellent and plenty for modern AAA gaming.
System Memory - An excellent amount of system memory, the 32GB is capable of running AAA titles during the 2020 gaming year and we would expect beyond that as well.
Screen Size - This laptop’s 17.3" screen can deliver a good viewable amount of real estate for modern games and in terms of screen size this is a step towards the laptop being an excellent gaming laptop choice. You can of course game on smaller screen laptops, but in game menus could become tricky to see on smaller screens.
Refresh Rate - Refresh rates can be hard to see, when the laptop reseller doesn't make it clear. Assume 60Hz if this is the case. Ideally for a gaming laptop you want 120Hz. This means the games you run can get up to 120 frames per second, assuming the hardware inside them is powerful enough to deliver that FPS. The refresh rate caps a games deliverable FPS even if the hardware can deliver more FPS than the Hz. As far as refresh rates go, this laptop can be picked up with a 60Hz screen. When looking into modern gaming laptops this would be ok, but you would consider higher panel rates if you want to enjoy top frames per second..
