Acer invites Malaysia to Feel the Vibe
The new normal is not stopping Acer Malaysia from celebrating Acer Day, its annual event that Malaysians have come to know and enjoy. Acer Malaysia decided to move the celebration online this year, and still maintain its plethora of games, promotions, lucky draw sessions, #FeeltheVibeWithAcer challenge, and other rewarding activities. In conjunction with the upcoming Acer Day, Acer Malaysia also announced a refresh to its highly popular gaming laptops: Predator Helios 700 and Helios 300.
“The year 2020 marks the fourth edition of Acer Day and we want to invite Malaysians to join our celebration themed “Feel the Vibe” together online. With precautionary measures still widely encouraged during our planning stage, we decided against running roadshows in multiple states for the safety of customers. We believe the online event can be just as fun and rewarding for many. Aside from games and free gifts, we are also conducting a 3-day Super Brand Day on Shopee from 2 to 4 August 2020 this time around.

Predator Helios 700 – The Mobile Desktop Replacement Candidate
The refreshed Predator Helios 700 that was announced during the next@acer global press conference in late June 2020 is now available for special pre-order in Malaysia. Prices start from RM12,999 depending on the specifications. The Predator Helios 700 features the iconic sliding HyperDrift keyboard and is equipped with either an overclockable 10th Gen Intel Core i9-10980HK or i7-10875H processor and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER or RTX 2070 SUPER graphics card.
To keep this extreme gaming beast at its best performance, Acer equipped a new thermal solution to significantly enhance its thermal capabilities – called the Predator PowerGem. This solution is typically included only in models with the Intel Core i9 processor. PowerGem is a special thermal interface material (TIM) designed with high efficiency in heat conduction, resulting in 3.83 times more vertical heat conductivity than copper. PowerGem is added to the existing five copper heat pipes, Acer CoolBoost Technology, vapor chamber and two of Acer’s proprietary 4th Gen AeroBlade™ 3D fans that are equipped in the Predator Helios 700. Overall, the CPU performance will benefit tremendously from this new Acer technology.
With a 17.3-inch 144 Hz FHD IPS display with NVIDIA G-SYNC® technology, the Predator Helios 700 allows gamers to kick this laptop into high gear for a tear-free, seamless gaming experience. Armed with two Thunderbolt 3 ports, Predator Helios 700 is capable of equipping up to 64GB of the faster 2933 Hz memory and up to two fast PCIe NVMe Solid State Drives to keep everything lightning fast, especially with the latest Killer DoubleShot™ Pro that ensures the speed-critical applications get bandwidth priority.
Per-key RGB lighting and anti-ghosting keyboard on Predator Helios 700 are now updated with MagTek mechanical switches for the WASD keys and a set of new racing keys which offer increased precision. Gamers can choose the keys best suited for them by swapping the standard WASD keys for the MagForce or racing keys. The 1.5 mm keycap curvature designed for racing games enables gamers to make finer and more controlled movements in-game. Gamers can adjust the keys’ lighting and actuation point through Predator Sense app or by pressing the P3 hotkey.
Predator Helios 300 –Tournament Proven Gaming Laptop at an Affordable Price
The Predator Helios 300 is highly popular among gamers who seek blur-free gameplay because of its 15.6-inch narrow-border FHD IPS display that supports 144Hz refresh rates and 3ms response times. In addition to the latest 10th Gen Intel® Core™ processor, this gaming laptop packs in 8GB RAM that is upgradable up to 32GB RAM in dual channel and 512GB PCIe NVMe SSD. It anticipates future needs of gamers with its additional M.2 slot and a HDD slot with HDD upgrade kit in the box.
To ensure bandwidth usage according to priority, Killer DoubleShot™ Pro in combination with Intel® Wireless Wi-Fi 6 and Killer Ethernet E2600 increases speed, network stability and performance to allow gamers to take full advantage in the fiercest of battles. Enabling gamers to conquer new worlds by unleashing their true potential, Predator Helios 300 features the latest AeroBlade™ 3D Fan Technology for superior cooling while reducing overall noise.
Having proven itself in numerous eSport tournaments in Malaysia, the refreshed Predator Helios 300 comes with the option of 10th Gen Intel® Core™ i7 or i5 processors paired with NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 graphics to meet all the needs of gamers. Design-wise, the new Predator Helios 300 shifts the speaker to the top and its charger port to the back of the device. Retail price starts from RM4,599 and it will be available from 2 August 2020 at all Acer official online stores and all Acer authorized resellers nationwide.
