The new Acer Helios 300 is almost like the
bigger brother of the Acer Nitro 5, but what are the differences between these two gaming
laptops and which should you get? In this detailed comparison I’ll look at pretty
much everything to help you decide if it’s worth paying more money for the Helios 300
or if the Nitro 5 is enough. Let’s start off with the differences in
specs between the two units I’m testing with. Both are pretty similar, they’ve got
the same Intel i7-9750H CPU, Nvidia GTX 1660 Ti graphics, and 16GB of memory in dual channel.
Both have M.2 NVMe SSDs, my Helios 300 happens to have a 256GB one while my Nitro 5 has a
512GB one, but this will vary based on where you’re buying. Both have a 15.6” 1080p
screen available with either 144Hz or 60Hz refresh rates, and both have gigabit ethernet,
802.11ac WiFi and Bluetooth 5 for network connectivity. Both laptops are available with different
specs though, you can find examples and updated prices linked in the description. Both have black lids, matte black aluminium
for the Helios with blue accents around the predator logo in the middle, and matte black
plastic with a subtle logo in the center and a textured triangle finish towards the sides
for the Nitro 5. Build quality of both machines was good, however the Helios 300 definitely
felt better, it had more metal on the exterior while the Nitro 5 was all plastic. In terms of weight my Helios 300 was a little
heavier, but it’s not a fair comparison as it had a 2.5 inch drive installed. With
the 180 watt power brick and cables for charging included the Helios was only a little over
80g more, so without that drive it’s probably a bit lighter. As for size differences the Nitro 5 is just
a little bigger in every dimension, not really by a noticeable amount but the Helios 300
was thinner. As for screen differences both of my laptops
had 1080p 60Hz IPS panels, so expect different results with the 144Hz options that most people
are likely to buy for gaming. The results were very close in terms of colour gamut,
though the Helios 300 had an edge in brightness and contrast ratio, no major differences though.
Neither laptop has G-Sync or the ability to disable Optimus. Backlight bleed was pretty similar, both had
minor patches around the edges, but I didn’t actually notice this when viewing darker content,
but results will vary between laptops and panels. Both had some screen flex, however I found
the Helios 300 a little more rigid, probably due to the metal lid while the Nitro 5 is
plastic. Although they have thin screen bezels, both
were able to keep the 720p camera up the top. The camera looks alright and the audio sounds
ok. The 720p camera is about average, it looks
ok but still a bit blurry, and the microphone sounds about average too. The keyboards were very similar in terms of
layout, both have accented WASD and arrow keys, with a shortcut in the top left corner
of the numpad for accessing the control panel software, while the power button is up the
top right. As I didn’t use both side by side I can’t directly compare keyboard usage,
but from what I remember they were quite similar. Here’s how typing sounds to give you an
idea of what to expect. The Nitro 5 only has red backlighting, while
my Helios 300 had a 4 zone RGB keyboard, however not all of them have this, it seems that most
regions only sell it with a blue keyboard, so you’ll have to check when buying what
it’s actually got. All secondary functions on all keys are lit with both laptops though. The Helios also has a dedicated button to
enable turbo mode above the keyboard on the left, more on this later. Both touch pads use precision drivers, were
smooth to the touch and worked well, I can’t really recall any differences between them
in terms of usability. There was some flex while pushing down on
both, a little more from the Nitro 5 which isn’t surprising given the all plastic build,
however I never actually noticed this when using either of them day to day. Both machines show up fingerprints quite easily,
but were easy to clean due to the smooth surface. The I/O is quite a bit different in terms
of layout, on the left both have a kensington lock, gigabit ethernet, and two USB 3.1 Gen1
Type-A ports. The Nitro 5 also has a HDMI 2.0 output and USB 3 Type-C port, while the
Helios has an air exhaust vent, power input, and 3.5mm audio combo jack. On the right the Nitro 5 just has its 3.5mm
audio combo jack, USB 2.0 Type-A port, power input and air vent, while the Helios 300 has
a USB 3 Type-C port, no Thunderbolt in either machine, a third USB 3 Type-A port, mini DisplayPort
1.4 and HDMI 2.0 outputs. On the back both just have air exhaust vents,
however the Nitro 5 only has fans on one side, as we’ll see soon, otherwise there’s nothing
on the front of either machine. For those not keeping track, the I/O is quite
similar, however the Helios 300 is better overall. Not only does it have air vents on
both sides for additional cooling, it’s also got a mini DisplayPort output which the
Nitro 5 is missing. Both have three USB Type-A ports, but one of the Nitro’s is 2.0 while
the Helios is all USB 3. Underneath the designs are kind of similar,
with vents for air intake towards the back, rubber feet in similar positions, and the
speakers are found towards the front on the left and right corners. I didn’t listen to them side by side so
can’t directly compare them, but going by the recordings I have they sounded extremely
similar. Maybe the Helios was a little clearer, the max volume was similar in any case, and
the Latencymon results with the Nitro 5 were significantly better compared to the Helios
300. The Helios 300 also plays this sound by default
on boot. You can turn it off through the predator sense
software or in the BIOS though, the Nitro 5 has no boot sound. Speaking of the BIOS, here’s a super quick
run through of each of them, both are quite basic and locked down with not really many
advanced options available to the user. The bottom panels can be removed by taking
out 10 Phillips head screws for the Helios and 11 for the Nitro 5. Both machines offer
similar features, they’ve both got two M.2 slots, a 2.5 inch drive bay, WiFi card, two
memory slots, and same battery down the bottom. Where they differ is in the cooling design,
but we’ll look at thermals soon. Both laptops have the same 58 watt hour battery,
and I’ve tested both machines with the screen brightness at 50%, background apps disabled,
and keyboard lighting off. Despite them both having the same sized battery, the Helios
300 was lasting longer both in and outside of gaming. Now let’s take a look at thermals. Both
laptops were tested in an ambient room temperature of 21 degrees Celsius with the same settings,
so this should be as close as we can get to an apples to apples comparison. By default out of the box the Helios 300 has
a -0.125v undervolt applied to the CPU while the Nitro 5 does not. In the upcoming tests
I’ve tested the Helios 300 with turbo mode, so max fan speed, and the Nitro 5 with its
fans set to maximum, though it doesn’t explicitly have different performance modes like the
Helios. Basically both are set with the best settings that each laptop offers out of the
box. With the Helios, turbo mode maxes the fan
speed, raises CPU power limits, and overclocks the graphics. The Nitro 5 sees no such changes,
however I’ve included results with the Nitro 5 both at stock, but also with the same CPU
undervolt and GPU overclock that the Helios 300 has to see how it compares in an even
playing field. I’ve tested thermals of both machines in much more depth than what we’ll
cover here, so check the full reviews linked in the description for more information. These are the CPU and GPU temperatures while
under stress test. I’ve got both the Aida64 CPU stress test with only stress CPU checked,
and the Heaven benchmark at max settings at the same time to fully load the system. The
Helios was slightly warmer when it came to CPU temperature, however the Nitro 5 was warmer
on the GPU. These are the clock speeds for the same tests
just shown. The Helios 300 is coming out ahead here, it’s able to hit higher clock speeds
which probably explains the slightly warmer CPU, and higher GPU clock speeds were also
hit, perhaps in part due to the cooler temperatures which GPU boost prefers. These are the TDP values in watts reported
by hardware info. We can see that the Nitro 5 is capped to a 45 watt limit, however the
Helios 300 is able to surpass this, which explains the warmer CPU and higher clock speed.
Meanwhile both 1660 Ti’s are reaching their 80 watt limit. These are the power limits set by each machine,
in turbo mode the Helios is able to get 11 watts higher than the Nitro. Here’s what we’re looking at in terms
of Cinebench R20 scores from both machines. Even when we apply the same undervolt to the
Nitro 5 that the Helios 300 has by default it’s almost 500 points behind. This is because
the Nitro 5 has that 45 watt limit on the CPU, which applies both in CPU only workloads
like this, but also combined CPU and GPU workloads such as gaming, meaning that in pretty much
all workloads the Helios 300 will see better CPU performance. As for the areas where you’ll actually be
putting your hands, at idle the nitro 5 was a little warmer, but 30 is pretty average
in this test, the helios is just cool. When gaming with the fans on the default auto speed
the Nitro 5 was warmer. With the stress tests running and same fan speeds the Nitro 5 is
again warmer, then with the fans at max speed the Helios 300 is a fair bit cooler compared
to the Nitro. Let’s listen to those fan speeds and see why this is the case. At idle both laptops were still audible, the
Helios was a little louder though. When gaming with the fans on auto speed the Helios was
again louder, and then with the fans at maximum the Helios was still a bit louder. Both laptops
do however give you the option of customizing fan speed, so the louder Helios could be an
advantage, if the fans go faster it gives you more headroom within which to adjust. Overall there aren’t too many differences
in terms of thermals, but it seems that the Helios 300 has a slight advantage. The CPU
is a little warmer in my tests, but I think that’s a good thing in this instance as
it has a higher power limit, resulting in higher clock speeds and better performance,
while the GPU remains cooler with higher clock speeds compared to the Nitro. Next, let’s compare some games. As both laptops
were tested at different times different Nvidia drivers were in use, but I’m not expecting
too big of a difference due to this. I’ve also included results with the Nitro 5 both
at stock, and while undervolted and overclocked so that we can attempt a more apples to apples
comparison with the Helios 300 for someone that’s willing to tweak it a little. The
main differences between them in this customized state is that the Helios 300 has a higher
CPU power limit under combined CPU and GPU load and higher fan speeds. Battlefield 5 was tested in campaign mode.
I’ve got the Helios 300 results in the top bar, which is with turbo mode enabled, then
the Nitro 5 in the two bars below. The middle bar represents the custom settings I put in
place for the Nitro 5, so same CPU undervolt and same GPU overclock as the Helios out of
the box, though as discussed earlier the Helios 300 does still have a higher CPU power limit.
The bottom bar shows the Nitro 5 at stock out of the box settings, as I thought it would
be useful to show the difference these changes are making, especially if you don’t plan
on customizing your Nitro 5. In this test with our custom settings in place the Nitro
5 was ahead of the Helios 300 both in average FPS and 1% low, however this game has seen
a number of improvements lately and my Helios results are older. Shadow of the Tomb Raider was tested with
the built in benchmark, and with the custom settings in place on the Nitro 5 it was actually
slightly ahead of the Helios 300, though with both at stock the Helios 300 was 4% faster. Assassin’s Creed Odyssey was also tested
with the built in benchmark, and this is a fairly CPU heavy test. The 1% low with the
Nitro 5 and custom settings actually dropped, so not sure if this was preventing it getting
adequate power or what, however the average frame rate was slightly ahead of the Helios
300, though all average results are within 1 FPS anyway. Fortnite was tested using the replay feature,
and as I tested the Nitro 5 after the Helios I didn’t use the exact same replay file
as the game updates frequently, however I did perform the same pass through the game
so it should still be quite comparable. In this test the Nitro 5 was able to catch up
to the Helios 300 in terms of average frame rate, however the 1% low of the Helios was
still 9% ahead. Dota 2 was tested playing in the middle lane.
In this test the average frame rates were all extremely comparable, however the Nitro
5 was seeing higher 1% lows, and more so once applying the customizations. CS:GO was tested with the Ulletical FPS benchmark,
and was a win for the Helios 300. We can see the slight improvement the customizations
made with the Nitro 5 weren’t enough to catch up to the Helios 300 in this test. Overwatch was tested in the practice range
with the exact same pass through in all tests. Interestingly the 1% low from the Nitro 5
was a fair bit ahead of the Helios 300, although the Helios 300 was slightly ahead when it
came to average FPS. Far Cry New Dawn was tested with the built
in benchmark, and although the custom settings give the Nitro 5 a little boost, the Helios
300 was still 5% ahead in terms of average frame rate. The Witcher 3 is a fairly GPU demanding game,
and there was basically zero difference for the Nitro 5 between stock and custom settings,
while the Helios 300 was 8% ahead. Ghost Recon Wildlands was tested with the
built in benchmark, and was another game where the customized Nitro 5 was able to outperform
the Helios 300, granted not by much, just like most other differences many of these
aren’t going to significantly affect actual game play between machines. Rainbow Six Siege was tested with the built
in benchmark, and the average frame rate with the Nitro 5 went above the result from the
Helios 300, however the 1% low performance did go back just a little. DOOM was tested as a Vulkan title to see if
it behaved any differently, however the results were similar to many other games, with the
Nitro 5 at stock behind the Helios 300, but the modifications were enough to give it the
lead. Strange Brigade was also tested with Vulkan,
but with the built in benchmark this time. Technically the Helios 300 was still ahead
of the modified Nitro 5, however the difference is extremely close, margin of error stuff. On average over these 13 games tested when
we compare the stock out of the box results from the Helios 300 against the stock results
from the Nitro 5 we’re seeing the Helios getting 5.2% higher average FPS at the highest
setting presets. The results look good for the Helios, it’s beating the Nitro in every
single game in terms of average frame rate, that is until we apply the same CPU undervolt
and GPU overclocks to the Nitro 5 that the Helios 300 has by default. When we do this
the Nitro 5 was now ahead in more titles, however when actually looking at the overall
average there’s almost zero difference. I found these results quite interesting, the
Nitro 5 with the custom settings was closer to the Helios 300 than I expected. As the
Nitro 5 has the lower 45 watt power limit on the CPU I thought this would result in
it coming out behind, however that didn’t really seem to matter here. I’ve also got the overall scores for the
3DMark Fire Strike and Time Spy benchmarks. Like the games, the custom settings with the
Nitro 5 are closing the gap, though the Helios 300 did still have a slight lead in both tests. I’ve tested storage with Crystal disk mark.
My Helios 300 came to me with a 256GB NVMe SSD while the Nitro 5 came with a 512GB NVMe
SSD, though storage sizes will vary. With the specific drives that my machines had,
the Helios 300 was faster, though smaller. My Helios 300 also came with a 1TB drive installed,
and these are the results from that. For updated pricing check the links in the
description, as prices will change over time. In the US the Helios 300 with these specs
goes anywhere from $1100 to $1200 USD, but also goes on sale for $1000 from time to time. The Nitro 5 with 1660 Ti I’ve tested here
doesn’t actually appear to be sold in the US currently, making a direct comparison difficult.
This means that if you do want 1660 Ti level performance the Helios 300 is going to be
your option between the two, and this difference alone probably makes choosing it worthwhile.
The highest GPU available in the Nitro 5 in the US seems to be the 1650 currently. The
conclusion from my 1650 vs 1660 Ti video was basically that it’s often going to be worth
paying a little extra for 1660 Ti performance, as it’s significantly better when compared
to the 1650. Here in Australia the 1660 Ti Nitro 5 is $2000
AUD, while the Helios 300 is $2200 AUD, so 10% more money to get the Helios. Let’s
summarise the differences and discuss which is worth it. Although both laptops have a clear gaming
design aesthetic, personally I prefer the blue look of the Helios 300 over the Nitro’s
red. The Nitro is also more plastic, giving an edge in overall build quality to the metal
Helios, and the Helios is also slightly smaller in every dimension. Out of the box the Helios 300 performs better
than the Nitro 5 in games, it’s tuned quite well. Not only does the CPU come undervolted,
but turbo mode also overclocks the graphics and raises the power limit of the CPU. In
most games it was possible to even the results by manually applying the CPU undervolt and
GPU overclock to the Nitro 5, so if you’re willing to manually make these changes yourself
the overall performance is quite similar – at least when using a Nitro 5 with same specs. For CPU only tasks where the GPU isn’t used
though, the Helios still has an advantage of higher CPU power limit. Unfortunately I
wasn’t able to increase this on the Nitro 5, meaning CPU workloads should perform better
on the Helios, as we saw in Cinebench. There wasn’t that big of a difference when
it came to thermals, the Helios was a bit warmer on the CPU, though this was due to
the higher power limits just discussed which does result in better performance, otherwise
the GPU was cooler and hitting higher speeds. The fans in the Helios did get a little louder,
however you can customize the fan speed of both laptops. Although both of my laptops had a 60Hz screen,
144Hz is an option too. Comparing the 60Hz variants that I tested though, both were very
similar. There were many more similarities, including similar keyboards, granted the Helios
does have the option of RGB lighting, similar touchpads and similar speakers. The Helios 300 had slightly better I/O, including
a mini DisplayPort 1.4 output, and it drops the USB 2.0 Type-A port present in the Nitro
5 for USB 3. Despite having the same size battery, the Helios lasted slightly longer,
both in and outside of gaming. In terms of upgradeability they were essentially
the same, both have two memory slots, two M.2 slots, single 2.5 inch drive bay and WiFi
card. In the end I think these are some decent improvements
for 10% more money, at least with the same spec configs I’ve got here. If you just
care about out of the box game performance, the Helios 300 is the better pick as you can
just press the turbo button and forget about it, otherwise you can save some money with
the Nitro 5 and close the performance gap if you’re willing to undervolt and overclock
yourself. If the 1660 Ti Nitro 5 isn’t available for you, well based on my testing the next
best option, the 1650, would have to be quite a lot cheaper, as the 1660 Ti performs around
47% better on average over 15 games that I’ve tested, I’ll leave a link to that comparison
in the video description. If you’re on an even tighter budget, the
Nitro 5 is also available with some lower end AMD configurations as well. So which of these two gaming laptops would
you pick, Acer’s Nitro 5 or Helios 300? Let me know which and why down in the comments,
I’m interested to see which you would prefer, and if you’re new to the channel consider

    How about the MSI PS63? Its 1050ti max-q model goes for about $1000 USD and it's 1650 model max-q goes for about $1300 USD. It seems like a great thin and light editing machine that can also game. It would be great to get your opinion on it and maybe even a review on it.

    Just got the acre predator Helios 300 yesterday and it feels awesome. It’s really well built compared to the nitro 5. I used it at Best Buy and the build just felt cheaper compared to the predator. Both are great laptops but, I would rather spend a little more money for the build. Great review Jared!

    I still believe Helios 300 cooling system is better than Nitro 5 because of dual fan on each side, and each fan has 2 sided heatsink fins instead of only 1 side.

    However, the price difference in USA between the 2 is the main deterring factor for consumers to seriously consider if they really want to pay for the Helios 300. It's like USD $1400 for Helios 300 vs $700 – 900 Nitro 5.

    Nitro 5… I personally like the design better and its well bellow my budget. The plastic part of it is a bit unattractive though so. That may judt make me get the Helios which i haven't yet checked prices for, it should be in my budget rangs and the design in its self is less flashy which i also like. And im about to completely contradict everything i thought before hand. Well given the nitro is 700 right now and the Helios is still around 1100 its a far superior machine and may just be for a black friday purchase. I just wish it were bigger… And it is… My dumby dumb thought it was 13 inches

    Does anyone think Nitro 7 will overheat with Sims 4? That’s the only thing I will play on it. I only play for 1-3 hours at a time (more than that is a rare day) and not everyday. I ordered one before I heard that they still have overheating issues and now I’m just nervous to try it out when it arrives.

    Predator Helios 300 or the Nitro 7? What's the difference between both? Here, the 9750h/1660ti/144Hz 3ms/16gb ram of the Nitro 7 is 200$ less compared to the same specs on the Predator. What should I go for?

    I was leaning towards a Lenovo legion Y540 until I watched your comparison video with the Helios. I love the laptop and the look has grown on me a lot! It performs better than most if not all laptops in its price range. Might just buy it next year. If the 2020 model is out and is anywhere nearly as good as this I'll buy it!

    Just steal a ram car from Walmart slap it on the nitro and boom trust me that performance boost will be at least 30-45 more FPS in gaming
