Acer Triton 500 (2080 Max-Q) Gaming Benchmarks – 20 Games Tested!
The configuration Ive got, has an Intel: i7 9750H CPU, 90 watt, Nvidia RTX 2080 Max Q, graphics, 32gb of memory in dual channel And a 15.6 1080p 144Hz screen with G Sync: you can find updated prices linked in the description. At CES 2020 Acer announced the Triton 500 would also have an optional 300Hz screen so well see if any games will actually be able to utilize this.. The Acer. Predator Sense software lets us disable Optimus, which is required to use G Sync and doing this will give us a performance boost in games. So Ive done all testing like this. Ive, also tested with turbo mode enabled which basically overclocks the graphics by this much and sets the fans to maximum speed.. The Triton 500 also comes undervolted on the CPU by default, so that should further help boost performance. Ive reviewed. The Triton 500 in the past, but that was with RTX 2060 and I figured it would be interesting to see how the highest specced version performs. Well start out. By going through all games at all setting levels then afterwards well see how the Triton 500 compares with some other gaming laptops. Red Dead Redemption 2 was tested. Using the games built in benchmark tool. High settings was still giving good results. However, ultra wasnt able to hit 60 FPS in this test, even with these higher tier specs for a gaming laptop. Battlefield 5, was tested in campaign mode and Ive got RTX on shown by the green bars and RTX off shown by the purple bars.
With RTX on It was still playable with high and ultra settings. However, at these setting levels, the frame rates were more than twice as good, with RTX off. Control was tested with RTX on or off and was performing well enough with the high setting preset with RTX off., I tested RTX with high settings and it wasnt too bad. As the game still seems to run fine even below 60 FPS, but personally, I preferred it with RTX off for the higher frame rates. Apex Legends was tested with either all settings at maximum or all settings on the lowest possible values as it doesnt have predefined setting Presets., The 144 FPS frame cap was being hit at minimum settings and were close to this maxed out too. The bigger difference was to the 1 low. Call of Duty. Modern Warfare was tested in campaign mode and Ive also tested it with the settings either maxed out or at minimum.. It was still playing well with everything maxed out with above 100 FPS. However, the 1 low saw a bigger drop off compared to average frame rate. Borderlands 3 was tested using the games built in benchmark and even with max settings. It was still possible to hit above 60 FPS averages with around double this possible at lower setting levels. Shadow of the Tomb Raider was tested with the built in benchmark, and the results were very impressive when compared to other laptops, even with the same specs, well check How this game and others compare against other laptops, soon.
Ghost Recon Breakpoint was also tested with the benchmark tool and even the highest setting preset was able to average above 60 FPS with even very high settings. Scoring 100 FPS. Fortnite was tested with the replay feature and as a less demanding game, epic settings was able to get frame rates not too far behind the refresh rate of the screen. High settings would be a great match up for 144Hz, where even the 1 low Was near the refresh rate. Overwatch is another less demanding game and was tested in the practice. Range.. The 300 FPS frame cap was being hit at low and medium settings. So if you got the Triton 500 with the new 300Hz display, then you could utilize it here.. Csgo was tested using the Ulletical FPS benchmark, and the results are much better here when compared to most other laptops with similar specs due to the option of disabling Optimus.. Again, this is another esports title that hits high frame rates and would be a good game to pair with the optional 300Hz display. Dota 2 was tested playing in the middle lane and as more of a CPU heavy test. The frame rates are pretty similar to most other i7 based laptops. However, interestingly, at ultra settings the performance was down a little more than I expected, but that said, it still played very well without issues. Rainbow Six Siege was tested with the built in benchmark and even with the ultra setting preset, the average frame rate is higher than The 144Hz display Ive got while low settings is just able to average 300 FPS, so could be a game to play.
With the 300Hz panel option. Metro Exodus was tested using the built in benchmark. Most parts of the game perform a fair bit better than this. So dont take these results as a good indication of what to expect throughout the entire game its more of a worst case.. The Division 2 was also tested with the built in benchmark, and although it was possible to average above 60 FPS at ultra settings, the 1 low performance at ultra to medium was down significantly, though this is something Ive seen from other laptops too, so likely some issue With the game. PUBG was tested using the replay feature., The game was getting great frame rates, regardless of the setting level in use even with ultra settings. These are great results for a laptop and up to 180. Fps at very low settings is well above most other machines, Ive, tested. Assassins Creed, Odyssey was tested with the built in benchmark and as a resource heavy game. The frame rates arent all that much better compared to many other laptops, despite having much better hardware and being tuned well out of the box.. That said, it was still possible to hit 60 FPS averages at max settings, which I think is great for this game. Far Cry. New Dawn was also tested with the games benchmark and the results are pretty similar compared to most other i7 based laptops that Ive tested on the channel just a little higher at the higher setting levels due to the 2080 max q.
But, realistically not that big of a difference., The Witcher 3 was playing great with ultra settings. However, simply dropping down to high settings would push the average frame rate closer to the refresh rate of the display.. F1 2019 was tested using the games benchmark tool and, although max settings had decent average FPS, the 1 low performance was down substantially. However, stepping down just one level to high increased performance significantly, where even 1 low performance was now ahead of the average FPS of max settings. Lets also take a look at how this config of the Acer Triton 500, compares with other laptops use these results as a Rough guide only as they were tested at different times with different drivers. In Battlefield 5 Ive got this Triton 500 highlighted in red near similarly specced machines. Ive also got the Triton 500 with RTX 2060 too, but were not concentrating on that here.. These results are seriously impressive, theyre a fair bit higher than any of the other RTX 2080 Max Q laptops that Ive tested.. To be fair, though, this game has seen a number of updates over time, so it would be interesting to do updated testing on those other machines.. Nevertheless, excellent results from the Triton 500.. These are the results from Far Cry 5 with ultra settings in the built in benchmark.. Again, the results were ahead of the other machines with similar specs.. It is worth noting that the Triton 500 Im testing here has the 9th gen i7 9750H CPU, while the other 2080 Max Q laptops.
I have data for have the older 8750H, and although this is a CPU heavy test, the 9th gen chip is only 100Mhz faster. In multicore workloads., Honestly, I think the default undervolt is giving it more of a boost than that difference.. These are the results from Shadow of the Tomb raider, with the built in benchmark at highest settings.. Again, the results were well above the competition only being beat by more expensive and thicker machines with Max P, 2080 graphics, very impressive results from the Triton 500 here.. So why are the results? A fair amount better than most other laptops with similar specs? In short, the Triton 500 is tuned well out of the box. By default, its got a 0.1v undervolt on the CPU and turbo mode, overclocks, the GPU core and memory speeds. With the 2080 Max Q version. Im testing here were also given the option of disabling Optimus, which is a requirement to use G Sync, and this further helps improve performance.. This last component, unfortunately, doesnt translate to the lower specced 2070 or 2060 Triton 500, as these arent available with G Sync. Theyll still be undervolted and overclocked. Just no option of disabling Optimus like was possible. With this 2080 Max Q version were looking at here.. Due to these tweaks were seeing excellent performance from Acers Triton 500., Although the laptop was updated with an optional 300Hz refresh rate screen at CES 2020. Even with all this power, its worth noting, were only seeing high enough frame rates to take advantage of this in esports titles as expected, however, even with these esports titles like CSGO, Fortnite, Overwatch and Rainbow Six Siege, low settings are still needed at 1080p.
