Keeping pace with the tech world’s rhythm, Acer has just unveiled the Predator Triton Neo 16 with Meteor Lake Intel Core Ultra chips. In this article, let’s talk about the design, features, specifications, chipset, availability, and expected price in Nepal of the Acer Predator Triton Neo 16. 

Acer Predator Triton Neo 16 Overview: 

Performance and Chipset

The Predator Triton Neo 16 (2024) will sport the new Core Ultra 7 and Core Ultra 9 SoCs. But this change might not be as significant as you might expect. Here’s why. 

Intel Core Ultra Chipset

Acer’s current gaming laptops are powered by Intel Core i7, i9 H series chipsets. And benchmarks from early reviewers as well as Intel don’t show any significant improvement in CPU performance. Moreover, the Arc Graphics which is one of the major highlights of Meteor Lake might not be too relevant as the Neo 16 is a gaming laptop featuring dedicated NVIDIA GPUs. 

But the new chips do feature 2 LPE cores which should help preserve battery life during very light tasks. Finally, there’s also a dedicated NPU (Neural Processing Unit) which should accelerate AI-related tasks and help with efficiency. 

Moving on, as previously said, the laptop will feature dedicated NVIDIA GPUs up to a 4070 with 8GB of GDDR6 VRAM. This means you get access to features like DLSS 3.5, frame gen, and more. 

To keep the system cool, Neo 16 is equipped with a 5th Gen AeroBlade 3D fan, liquid metal on the CPU, and vector heat pipes. Users can control the functionality via the Predator Sense 5.0 utility.

Design and Display

On the design front, the Triton Neo 16 doesn’t have your typical game-ry design. It features a modest Predator Logo on the top of the lid while the rest is a clean slate. The front is minimal too but accompanied with a 3-zone RGB keyboard for aesthetics.

And, as the name suggests, the Triton Neo 16 sports a 16-inch screen. Acer offers 2 display configurations with up to a 3.2K res 165Hz IPS panel with a 16:10 aspect ratio and full DCI-P3 color coverage. There’s also Calman-Verification for true-to-life cinematic colors and support for Advanced Optimus and G-SYNC to prevent screen tearing and stutters.


On the topic of connectivity, there’s an HDMI port, two USB-A ports, Thunderbolt 4 ports, a MicroSD card, and a 3.5mm jack. There’s Acer’s Purified Voice 2.0 which makes use of AI filtering to capture clear vocals without causing echos or distortion. Details about the battery and charging speeds haven’t been disclosed as of yet.
