Want something more powerful than the new Nitro 5? Then consider the Acer Predator Helios 300, which has also been launched in Malaysia. Sporting a fast (and sharp) 165Hz QHD screen with Intel’s latest 12th gen processors, you can also configure this gaming laptop with a powerful Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 GPU.
Of course, that GPU is reserved for the highest-end Helios 300. Aside from the RTX 3080, this variant also features a Core i7-12700H processor paired with 32GB of RAM, a very generous 2TB of SSD storage, and a 15.6-inch QHD IPS screen with a 165Hz refresh rate. How much does this model cost? A cool RM11,999.
If you don’t quite need that powerful of a GPU, there’s the RTX 3070 Ti configuration for RM9,999; every other hardware are exactly the same as the aforementioned model.
Moving down the price range is the RTX 3070 variant of the Helios 300 for RM8,999. Compared to the previous two models, this variant swaps out the RAM and SSD capacities to 16GB and 1TB respectively; not a bad tradeoff to lower the price by a whole RM1,000.
Speaking of lower prices, the most affordable configuration of the Helios 300 costs just RM7,999. For that kind of money, you’re getting a more modest (but still quite capable) RTX 3060, along with the same RAM and SSD combo as the RTX 3070 model.
The new Acer Predator Helios 300 is now available for purchase in Malaysia. If you want to get this gaming laptop at a discount, give Acer Malaysia’s It Lies Within roadshow a visit at Sunway Pyramid until 3 July; you can get a RM200 cashback on all variants of the Helios 300 there.
