Today, during the [email protected] global press conference, Acer have expanded and refreshed its Predator product line-up.

Predator Helios 300 SpatialLabs Edition — 3D Gaming Laptop – (PH315-55s)

Acer has previously experimented with Stereoscopic 3D displays on the ConceptD 7 laptop which aimed to be beneficial for professional work such as D projects for CAD designs, 3D printing, architecture, animations, and more,

They are now bringing this technology to gaming laptops.

The Predator Helios 300 SpatialLabs is a powerful gaming laptop that enables glasses-free, stereoscopic 3D gaming experiences. With the SpatialLabs TrueGame application, gamers can effortlessly play supported games in a 3D mode on the device, where details of the scene are brought to life. Rooms appear more spacious, objects appear genuinely layered, and adventures become more thrilling—all smooth, in real-time, and without the need for special glasses.

SpatialLabs TrueGame is a new application that brings stereoscopic 3D to the world of gaming, letting players enjoy their favourite titles in their true glory. This is possible because games are mostly created with three dimensions in mind: developers include information about depth into each scene and object they build. SpatialLabs leverages this already-existing information in order to present the games in stereoscopic 3D. A dedicated pre-configured profile will be available for each game title among the 50+ modern and classic titles on launch in order to offer players a seamless experience with their favourite games, and profiles for additional titles will be added on a continuous basis moving forward.

The SpatialLabs experience is created through the combination of an eye-tracking solution, a stereoscopic 3D display and real-time rendering technologies. The display of the Predator Helios 300 SpatialLabs Edition gaming laptop consists of a 15.6-inch UHD 2D panel with a liquid crystal lenticular lens optically bonded on top of it, together forming an innovative module that can be switched back and forth between 2D and stereoscopic 3D views.

To power these exciting real-time 3D experiences, the Predator Helios 300 SpatialLabs Edition features up to 12th Gen Intel Core i9 processors, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Laptop GPUs, 32GB DDR5-4800 memory and PCIe Gen 4 NVMe SSDs RAID 0 storage. A dual-fan layout that includes one 5th Gen AeroBlade 3D fan helps to keep the system running cool, further supported by liquid metal thermal grease and Acer’s CoolBoost technology.

Running Windows 11, the laptop comes with Killer DoubleShot Pro and Wi-Fi 6E (E2600+1675i) connectivity in addition to a healthy range of ports, including an HDMI 2.1 port for connecting to external monitors, a Thunderbolt 4 port, and two USB 3.2 Gen2 ports.

The Predator Helios 300 SpatialLabs Edition (PH315-55s) will be available in North America in early Q4, starting at USD 3,399.99; and in EMEA in September, starting at EUR 3,299.
