The age of 300Hz gaming laptops is upon us. Over at IFA 2019 in Berlin, both Acer and ASUS revealed upcoming gaming laptops with a 300Hz Full HD display. This includes the Acer Predator Triton 500 and the ASUS ROG Zephyrus S.
The Acer Predator Triton 500 ships with a slim 17.9mm chassis and weighs just 2.1kg. Bezels on the 300Hz display measure in at 6.3mm, so you are getting an 81 percent screen to body ratio. It will be very expensive though, with pricing starting at €2699.

ASUS will be launching the 300Hz version of the ROG Zephyrus S in October, although we don’t have pricing just yet. The version on display at IFA this week does come with an RTX 2080 and a 9th Gen Core i7 CPU, so it will also end up being up there in price.
Whether this is really necessary remains to be seen, but the manufacturers definitely seem to think there's a market for bigger numbers.
