Say farewell to your desktop. With an 11th Gen Intel® Core™ i9 Processor1, a GeForce RTX™ 30801, and one of the most cutting-edge displays to grace the base of a laptop chassis – a 4K Mini LED panel1 with 120Hz refresh – you can see why Helios is heralding in the future of gaming.
TAKE A LOOK INSIDE
Feel the power emanate from within the neon-hued shell. Inside, hums an 11th Gen Intel® Core™ i9 Processor1, up to an NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ 3080, up to 64GB of 3200MHz DDR4 memory, and heaps of high-speed PCIe storage that our gaming libraries crave.
Kick your PC into gear with Intel’s 11th Generation processors – now clocking up to 5.0GHz2 Turbo. With up to 8 cores and 16 threads, it decimates every challenge set before it. So go on and load up the tasks and see for yourself what this powerhouse is capable of.
NVIDIA® GEFORCE RTX™ 30 SERIES
These GPUs deliver the ultimate performance for gamers and creators. They’re powered by NVIDIA’s 2nd Gen RTX Ampere architecture – with new Ray Tracing Cores, Tensor Cores, and streaming multiprocessors for a massive leap in performance.
3RD GEN TENSOR CORES
Tensor Cores enable mixed-precision computing, dynamically adapting calculations to accelerate throughput while preserving accuracy.
2ND GEN RT CORES
Ray tracing simulates light's actual behavior to bring real-time, cinematic-quality rendering to the most visually intense games.
Groundbreaking AI rendering boosts frame rates with uncompromised image quality using the dedicated AI processing Tensor Cores on GeForce RTX GPUs.
5TH GEN AEROBLADE™ 3D FAN TECHNOLOGY
Our 5th Gen AeroBlade™ 3D Fan Technology delivers some of the most powerful airflow made possible in a laptop – while providing essential cooling to other critical components via Vortex Flow Optimization, the PowerGem™,1, and strategically placed intakes, exhausts, and heat pipes.
Inspired by silent, powerful flight mechanics examined in animals, we gave our fans a serrated edge, allowing more air to pass through.
Each of the 89 bionic blades is just 0.08mm thick and all-metal with a stabilizing dual indent groove.
Designed to redirect airflow exactly where intended and further stabilize the fan at high speeds – reducing turbulence and noise.
We optimized the laptop's airflow through strategically placed thermal foam to increase overall cooling and reduce the device's skin temperature.
Thanks to this unique approach, the laptop can quickly disperse heat from the processor at a greater rate than other alternatives.
SEE THINGS DIFFERENTLY
Treat your eyes to a new reality with the 4K Mini LED 120Hz display1. HDR comes alive as the backlighting method makes it possible to reach VESA’s DisplayHDR™ 10001 specification. Games, movies, and whatever’s on-screen – all benefit from OLED-like levels of contrast and brightness.
PREDATOR PULSAR LIGHTING
Put the LEDs on full blast and let your laptop dance in a cyclone of neon. Predator Pulsar Lighting puts you in complete control of the RGB-fueled laptop via chassis-encasing light bars1 (including the rear exhaust) and per-key RGB. Dive in, tailor it to your heart’s content, and never look back.
Choose from four patterns and watch the lights dance to your audio – whether movie, game, etc.
Make viewing more immersive with Mimic. Colors on the screen will be matched with keyboard lighting.
Tailor the keyboard to your preferences and choose from 17 base patterns.
THE NEW WASD
With our patented, mechanical MagTek Switches, WASD keys can function like a gamepad’s analog joystick, allowing you to gradually increase pressure on the key for precise control over your character’s / car’s speed – from the intial4 (0.8 mm), press all the way to full speed at 100% (3 / 3.1 mm) actuation.
Ideal for any game, these have a linear press with no bump and a travel distance of 3.0 mm. Actuation points are customizable.
The curved, concave-shaped keys are comfortable for prolonged use and have a barely noticeable bump during the press with a travel distance of 3.1 mm.
Easily swap out the MagForce / Racing Keys out for standard membrane switch / keycap.
TAKE CONTROL WITH PREDATORSENSE
With four modes to choose from: Quiet, Default, Extreme, and Turbo – our custom utility app allows you to monitor your system, overclock, create macros, customize RGB preferences, and much more. All this within a personalized, intuitive interface geared around maximizing your system’s potential.
