Acer Predator 15 G9-593 Notebook Review

 

Pascal upgrade. Acer now uses the latest Pascal GPUs from Nvidia for the current Predator 15. We also get some additional features that were missing with the previous models. The design of the bulky 15-inch gaming notebook is still a matter of taste...

optical drive or additional fan, high performance, 8 GB VRAM, good IPS display with G-Sync, modern ports, always convenient temperatures, decent input devices with illumination and macro keys, handy tools, VR-ready

limited maintenance, slight GPU throttling extreme situations, bulky and heavy case, mediocre battery runtimes, sound could be better (hardly any bass), questionable design elements, long charging time

Acer's new Predator 15 G9-593 is a decent evolution of the two previous models – at least in terms of components. Sufficient performance is ensured by the new GeForce GTX 1070, the good IPS display finally supports G-Sync and the ports are up to date...

Acer Predator 15 (2016, GTX 1060) Review and Ratings

 

With an excellent RGB keyboard, an IPS G-Sync screen, overclocked GTX 1060 graphics, and quiet cooling, the updated Predator 15 is a very well-balanced mainstream gaming laptop at a reasonable price.

Excellent gaming performance ; Beautiful G-Sync display ; Rockin’ speaker setup ; Great RGB keyboard and touch pad ; Runs cool and quiet ; Built-in overclocking ; Dedicated gaming macro keys

Thicker and heavier than some competitors ; Long battery life, but shorter than the outgoing model ; SSD is SATA, not PCI Express

Plenty of products pass by our test bench and leave with a less-than-four-star rating. But those that earn
