Notebook Acer Predator 17 Helios 300 PH317-52-77LX Review
Intel Core i7
i7 processors are one of the most powerful representatives of the Intel Core family. Thanks to the innovated architecture, it will cope with any obstacle you face. Do you like playing computer games, editing high-definition video, or perhaps designing graphics in challenging 3D programs? i7 processors literally laugh at every such activity. Again, we encounter Hyper-Threading Technology, which allows one physical core to behave as two virtual cores. In practice, this means that the processor is able to process more information at the same time without activating another physical core, thereby reducing power consumption. There's also Turbo Boost technology that can boost processor base frequency and performance when a more demanding application is open. Compared to i5 processors, the cache memory capacity has increased again, helping to keep the system running more smoothly by storing frequently recurring processes.
The older technology of classic hard drives works on the principle of a spinning plate on which data is written. When searching for specific data, the computer must go through all the stored data on the disk to extend the resulting work time. Due to the large number of moving parts, the hard drive is much more vulnerable to shocks, damage and consequent irretrievable data loss. This notebook features a newer 128GB SSD. These drives work essentially on the same principle as USB flash memory or memory cards. Here, all moving parts are replaced by a set of electronic components that offer many times higher data rates, quieter operation, less power consumption and greater damage resistance.
IPS Imaging Technology
Whether you have job responsibilities above your head or just want to surf the Internet until late at night, you will certainly find it convenient to use a backlit keyboard that you can use to simply press a selected key combination. Integrated LEDs illuminate the entire keyboard reliably and at the same time, allowing you to easily use your notebook even in a completely darkened room.
