Framed in obsidian black, the color accurate IPS screen stares right back at you. A perfect view for those late-night gaming sessions. Question is, 4K or Full HD?
Go the full HD route and you’ll be part of the crowd that enjoys an incredibly fast refresh rate for gameplay that is seamless, fluid and fierce.
So, you prefer pushing image quality to its extremes. Fortunately, 4K will do just that. Say goodbye to anti-aliasing and hello to naturally crisp graphics.
Ultrathin and all metal, two AeroBlade™ fans keep your GPU/CPU at a nice, cool temp. Listen closely as they whisper, “game on, my friend. Game on.”
Five heat pipes distribute and rid the Helios 500 of its excess heat. With great power, comes great heat—comes incredible cooling.
Four exhausts and two intakes quickly cycle in cool air and expel the heat through a unique design that allows the laptop to be slightly elevated.
When the going gets hot, CoolBoost™ gets going. Just activate it and the fan speeds increase based on generated heat, keeping critical areas continually cooled.
The four-zoned RGB gives you a plethora of colors to play with (to the tune of 16.8 million) as well as five dedicated hotkeys that you can adjust to your needs.
Anti-ghosting for 182 of some of the most commonly used keystrokes will save you from the potential pitfall of an unregistered press.
While you’ll undoubtedly prefer a mouse when gaming, the blue-lit Precision Touchpad offers up a more traditional approach to laptop use.
Why settle for one display when you can use three. Simply plug them in via the HDMI 2.0, DisplayPort™ and/or USB Type C™ connections and you’re ready to roll.
ThunderBolt™ 31. They’re fast (40Gbps), they’re useful (single-cable docking) and they’re powerful (literally—up to 100W each). And this is just the start.
