2020 Acer Predator Helios 300 Now Available In Malaysia, Cheaper Than Ever

The 2020 refresh for the brute gaming laptop, the Acer Predator Helios 300 is out now in Malaysia soon.

UPDATE 30/07/20: Previously the article states that the new Predator Helios 300 is already available. It will be available on starting August 2.

The Acer Predator Helios 300 gets a hardware refresh for 2020, now with 10th-gen Intel Core CPU.

Another notable change is more cooling vents, there are now air slit on the top just above the keyboard, while still using Acer’s proprietary AeroBlade 3D fans. Hopefully this addresses last year’s model’s surface heat problems.

It also has Wi-Fi 6 and Killer Ethernet E2600 for better internet connection.

But there’s more. The charger port is now not on the side, but placed at the back- in-between the two large exhausts. The speaker is also shifted near the top.

Here are the specs for the 2020 Predator Helios 300:

Predator Helios 300 PH315-53-5462

  • CPU: Intel Core i5-10300H
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 6GB DDR6
  • RAM: 1x 8GB DDR4
  • Storage: 512GB PCIe NVMe SSD (1 extra HDD slot, 1 extra SSD slot)
  • Display: 15.6″ 144Hz 1080p IPS
  • Price: RM 4,599

Predator Helios 300 PH315-53-77CF

  • CPU: Intel Core i5-10750H
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 6GB DDR6
  • RAM: 1x 8GB DDR4
  • Storage: 512GB PCIe NVMe SSD (1 extra HDD slot, 1 extra SSD slot)
  • Display: 15.6″ 144Hz 1080p IPS
  • Price: RM 5,199

It’s pretty competitive price-wise, the PH315-53-5462 here is RM800 cheaper than its 2019 equivalent. And the old one has less storage space.

Though the 512GB storage and 8GB RAM is the bare minimum we would recommend for gaming right now, especially if you consider a future-proof transition to games made for the next-generation of consoles (PS5, Xbox Series X) coming later this year.

Still, if it’s any good like the 2019 version we reviewed, those flaws should be easily remedied with an upgrade.

The 2020 Acer Predator Helios 300, alongside the 2020 Acer Helios 700, will be out in Malaysia starting August 2, available on all Acer official online stores and authorised retailers.
