Acer has just renewed a wide range of products at its annual next@acer event and we are going to tell you all the news about equipment designed to play at its best.
Every year Acer quotes us with its product presentation and, is that, the company has in mind every twelve months to renew its wide range of equipment. This time we have decided to have a different approach along the following lines let’s break down what’s new in laptops, monitors and screens made for gaming.
Of course, we are not going to leave aside the products designed for office automation, so if you are more interested in that, you can consult the following article where we have focused on that family of devices. To whet your appetite, what we can say is that Acer has landed with everything and is ready to compete with the latest Asus products.
The star devices of these lines are the new Acer Predator Helios 300 SpatialLabs Edition gaming laptop that arrives accompanied by the Predator Triton 300 SE and that the icing on the cake are the new screens led by the Predator XB273K LV, closely followed by the Nitro XV272U RV along with the SpatialLabs View.
Acer Predator Helios SpatialLabs Edition: playing 3D games is now possible
This year at next@acer it seems that the bet is 3D and the new Acer Predator Helios SpatialLabs Edition It comes with up to 12th generation Intel Core i9 processors, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 cards for laptops, 32 GB of 4,800 mAh DDR5 RAM and PCIe Gen 4 NVMe SSD signed storage in RAID 0.
At the power level it is a beast, but the interesting thing is that it has the SpatialLabs TrueGame application that combined with 15.6-inch UHD 2D display that integrates an optically bonded liquid crystal lenticular lens allows the view of content to be switched between 2D and 3D.
Acer Predator Triton 300 SE: slim and powerful
Leaving 3D aside, the Acer Predator Triton 300 SE is aimed at gamers who want to play anytime, anywhere. The differential is its design, it is not a too strident team nor does it have enormous dimensions. The screen options vary according to what each one is looking for, there is even a 16:10 OLED panel.
There is also a model with a 16-inch panel, 240 Hz refresh rate and compatibility with both NVIDIA G-SYNC and NVIDIA Advanced Optimus. At the level of power inside, you will find the 12th generation Intel Core processors accompanied by the NVIDIA graphics card models of the RTX 30 series.
Acer Predator XB273K LV and Acer Nitro XV272U RV: two high-flying monitors
The monitors also have a place in the next@acer and, in fact, are an important part of the manufacturer’s presentation. These screens demonstrate the potential of your laptops and desktops. The first to come to light was the Predator XB273K LV, which has a 27-inch diagonal as the first important feature.
Furthermore, the resolution this 27-inch is UHD or 3,840 x 2,160 pixels. The interesting thing is both that it has a refresh rate of 160 Hz and that it has a response time of 0.5 milliseconds from gray to gray. At the connection level, it is compatible with HDMI 2.1 to take advantage of the latest generation consoles.
The next monitor to try is the Acer Nitro XV272U RV that also has some interesting features. The first thing is that the resolution integrated in the panel is WQHD or 2,560 x 1,440 pixels. Besides, It has a refresh rate of 170 Hz which is achieved by overclocking the panel and with a 1 millisecond gray-to-gray response time.

Acer SpatialLabs View Pro: a portable display with maximum precision
The commitment to 3D in this Acer presentation is quite clear. The product designed for this is the Acer SpatialLabs View Pro, which can be considered a combination of screen and tablet. This screen has a diagonal of 15.6 inches with 4K resolution that is also capable of covering 100% of the Adobe RGB color range.
The weight is only 1.5 kilograms so it can be carried in a backpack along with a laptop without being exaggerated. Besides, has compatibility for 3D design programs such as Solidworks or Cinema 4D. Although what is also interesting are Acer’s own programs for these issues.
