88% Geek Review: Acer Predator Helios 18 Gaming Laptop
Source: Geek Culture English EN→zh-CN
If there was an 18-inch beast of a flagship that’s worth the investment, it’d be the Acer Predator Helios 18. The gaming powerhouse has a lot to offer users, from excellent performance to spectacular visuals, but is a tough sell for the general crowd with its price tag.

80% Acer Predator Helios 18 review: a monster gaming laptop that goes all out
Source: Techradar English EN→zh-CN
These days, huge gaming laptops can be surprisingly thin and light, yet still offer high-end performance. The 18-inch Acer Predator Helios 18 is no exception, and pushes the limits of how much high-performance hardware it can fit inside. As it suggests in the name, the Helios 18 has a huge 18-inch QHD+ (2560 x 1600) mini-LED panel with a fast 250Hz refresh rate, an excellent 3ms GTG refresh rate, but also covers 100% of the DCI-P3 gamut for vibrant, accurate colors. While the Helios 18 does have more affordable variants with lower-performance parts, I got hands on with one of the highest-end models. Key is the mighty Nvidia GeForce RTX 4090 GPU, plus the equally high-end Intel Core i9-14900HX CPU and up to 64GB of RAM.

80% Acer Predator Helios 18 (2024) Review
Source: Trusted Reviews English EN→zh-CN
This is another superb gaming laptop from Acer, going straight up against the mighty ROG Strix Scar 18 and Alienware M18, and beating the former on price by several hundred pounds. If you’re not set on an 18-inch model, we’ve tested a bunch more, and you can find our top picks in our best gaming laptops guide. While it’s not quite as fast as these two monster gaming laptops, the Acer Predator Helios 18 (2024) is still in much the same ballpark, and it’s hard to quibble with its gaming features, the excellent screen or the general ergonomics.

Acer Predator Helios 18 (PH18-72) review – Desktop Performance in a Mini LED Laptop
Source: Laptop Media English EN→zh-CN
The Acer Predator Helios 18 (PH18-72) is a universal powerful machine. It can be a desktop replacement thanks to the exceptional hardware. With the 32-threaded Intel Core i9-14900HX, the laptop is suitable for CPU-intensive tasks such as 3D Rendering because the processor can maintain high clocks and power limits. The mobile GeForce RTX 4090 is able to show a 1972 MHz frequency after 30 minutes of gameplay – that’s a tremendously good result for such a thirsty chip that dissipates tons of heat! This Acer machine can be considered (almost) as a workstation since the cooling is capable and the overall performance is great. The optional 16:10 IPS Mini LED display (AUO B180QAN01.2 (AUO45A8)) is trying to compete with the OLED panels, at least when it comes to contrast (which here is 16000:1).

Acer Predator Helios 18 hands-on at CES 2024
Source: Engadget English
Without a new generation of NVIDIA GPUs to accommodate, this year at CES 2024 in Las Vegas, laptop manufacturers have been forced to come up with other ways of getting attention. Some OEMs have opted for complete redesigns while others have introduced smaller (and super light) versions of existing models. But on the 2024 Predator Helios 18, Acer has opted for the flashiest method yet, featuring a captivating new hinge along with updated specs.

这个大尺寸屏幕常见于以桌面使用为主的笔记本电脑。

大尺寸可以让屏幕有更高的分辨率。因而例如字体等的细节将会更丰富。不过另一方面,小屏幕的功耗会较低,而设备也会更轻盈小巧,售价更低。
