The latest representative of Acer’s gaming lineup is now here. This year’s renewed Predator 17 version is now available in some markets. It is quite identical to the Predator 17X with GTX 980 but this time it carries the more budget and yet very powerful GTX 1060.
Acer Predator 17 (G5-793) makes use of a quad-core Intel Core i7-6700HQ (Skylake) processor ticking at 2.60 to 3.50 GHz, and with 6MB of cache memory. Graphics-wise, the laptop features comes with the new NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 (Pascal architecture) with 6GB of GDDR5 memory. This combination of CPU and GPU should ensure more than a satisfying performance in most contemporary games. Some of the configurations include 16 or 32 GB of DDR4 (2133MHz) RAM but if you wish, you could add more because the motherboard supports up to 64GB for its four slots.
Acer Predator 17 (G5-793) has a big 17.3-inch display with an IPS panel and Full HD (1920 x 1080 p) resolution. Additionally, the screen offers good viewing angles and pixel density (approximately 127 ppi) which become indistinguishable at a distance of a little over 60 cm.
Acer Predator 17 is meant for gaming and multimedia tasks which are heavily dependent on audio quality to achieve their purposes or an influencing atmosphere. Of course, good audio is impossible without good loudspeakers. Fortunately, the laptop has four stereo loudspeakers and two subwoofers for better emphasis on the lows.
All these hardware components are powered by an 8-cell lithium-ion battery whose capacity is 6000mAh. It is expected to allow for 8 hours of usage after a single charge, according to the manufacturer.
