The Predator Helios 500 uses NVIDIA® G-SYNC® to back up their 4K UHD and FHD IPS 17.3-inch display options, each with 144Hz refresh rates, to combat stuttering or tearing in images. The laptop houses a Thunderbolt™ 3 port, a DisplayPort and an HDMI 2.0 port to support the use of up to three external monitors. In the sound department, the laptop features two speakers and a subwoofer powered by Acer‘s own sound technology, Acer TrueHarmony™, as well as Waves MAXXAudio®.

As with the Predator Orion desktops, proprietary cooling is also present in the Predator Helios 500 as well. Here, you have two Acer AeroBlade™ 3D metal fans and five heat pipes that work to circulate air throughout the laptop, as well as fan speed controls available to the user via the PredatorSense app. The PredatorSense app is Acer’s very own hardware customization software, allowing you control and monitor the laptop’s overclocking, lighting, hotkeys, and temperature. In terms of lighting and hotkeys, the Predator Helios 500’s keyboard features RBG lighting with four lighting zones, anti-ghosting technology, and five dedicated programmable keys.
