Acer is shaking things up in India with its latest gaming laptops that feature AI (Artificial Intelligence). The new Predator Helio 16 and Predator Helio Neo models have been announced for the region. These pack some cutting edge specs and features. So here are all the details.

Acer Predator Helios 16

Talking about the more expensive model first, the brand’s Predator Helios 16 comes with top notch hardware. The notebook sports a tall 16.-inch IPS display that offers 1920×1200 resolution, 500 nits of peak brightness, and 240Hz refresh rate, and 3ms response time. Under the hood, the laptop is equipped with the 14th Gen Intel Core i9 processor that is paired with either the Nvidia GeForce RTX 4080 or the RTX 4070 GPU. This model was teased to launch in India last month.

This is paired with 16GB of GDDR5 RAM (upgradeable up to 32GB) and 1TB of PCIe Gen4 storage (upgradeable up to 2TB). It runs on the Windows 11 OS with support for Wi-Fi 6E and Bluetooth 5.3. The port selections include 1x USB 3.2 Gen 1 port, 1x USB 3.2 Gen 2 port, 1x USB 3.2 Gen 2 port, and 2x USB Type-C ports (Thunderbolt 4). A large 90Wh battery pack powers this device that charges via a 330W AC adapter.

The Acer Predator Helios Neo sports a 16-inch IPS display as well with identical resolution, response time, and brightness. Although, its refresh rate maxes out at 165Hz. The hardware in this gaming laptop starts from an Intel i7 13th Gen CPU, but there are also 14th Gen i7 and 14th Gen i9 options as well. This CPU is paired with either an RTX 4050, RTX 4060, or RTX 4070 graphics card. The 14-inch variant of this model was previously announced in the US.
