The 2019 Predator Helios 700 Adds HyperDrift Keyboard!

The newly-refreshed 2019 Predator Helios 700 gaming laptop has a slew of new CPUs and GPUs to choose from, including the new 9th Gen Intel Core i9 and the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 or RTX 2070.

It also comes with up to 64 GB of DDR4 memory, and Killer DoubleShot Pro wired and Killer Wi-Fi 6 wireless connectivity.

All that power is convey to the gamer through a large 17-inch Full HD IPS display with 144 Hz refresh rate, 3 ms response time and NVIDIA G-SYNC support.

HyperDrift Keyboard

The most unique thing about the 2019 Predator Helios 700 is the new HyperDrift keyboard. Designed as part of the new Helios 700’s thermal architecture, it slides forward to uncover two additional air intakes for maximum cooling performance.

Sliding the HyperDrift keyboard forward also improves ergonomics – the keyboard is now closer to the gamer. On top of that – its MagForce keys use linear switches that triggers on the initial press, and increase up to 100 percent for more precise control.

It also has two hotkeys – Turbo to quickly engage overclocking, and PredatorSense to immediately access CPU + GPU temperatures, fan controls, RGB lighting and more.

4th Gen AeroBlade 3D Fans

The new Predator Helios 700 also comes with an improved cooling system. It not only leverages the HyperDrift keyboard for more airflow, it also comes with two 4th Gen AeroBlade 3D fans, five copper heat pipes, and the Acer CoolBoost Technology.

The new 4th Gen AeroBlade 3D fans have new 0.1 mm fan blades with a serrated edge, winglets along the top and bottom, as well as a curved fin along the inner portion of each blade. Acer claims this increases airflow by up to 45%!
