Acer Predator Helios 300 Review: An Overclockable Gaming Laptop With 144Hz Display
Acer Predator Helios 300: Rise Of The Tomb Raider And Shadow Of Mordor
We've seen how the Predator Helios 300 performs in synthetic benchmarks when pitted against similarly-equipped systems. Now let's have at look at how it performs in actual games, and specifically Rise of the Tomb Raider and Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor.
What we saw in the synthetic tests carried over to actual games, which is the Predator Helios 300 making the best use of the GeForce GTX 1060. It easily hit triple digit framerates at its native 1920x1080 resolution, and while not needed by any stretch, overclocking the GPU yielded a small performance bump.
Different benchmark, same story—the Predator Helios 300 is the fastest laptop with a GeForce GTX 1060 among our contenders. It's a smaller victory in Rise of the Tomb Raider, but a victory nonetheless. And once again, overclocking the GPU results in a few extra FPS.
