Published

on

Acer today announced the Predator Helios 300 SpatialLabs Edition gaming laptop, bringing glasses-free, stereoscopic 3D to the world of gaming. Through the SpatialLabs TrueGame application, it will support over 50 popular games at launch, and support for additional titles will be added on a continuous basis moving forwards. Alongside the 3D gaming laptop, Acer also announced the Predator Triton 300 SE thin gaming laptop, and the Predator XB273K LV and Acer Nitro XV272U RV gaming monitors.

“We’re excited to add a new dimension to gaming with the Predator Helios 300 SpatialLabs Edition, enabling industry-leading glasses-free stereoscopic 3D gaming,” said Jerry Kao, Co-COO, Acer Inc. “By integrating our SpatialLabs technology with our Predator gaming laptops, we hope to create a new category of immersive gaming experiences.”

Predator Helios 300 SpatialLabs Edition
The Predator Helios 300 SpatialLabs Edition (PH315-55s) is a powerful gaming laptop that enables glasses-free, stereoscopic 3D gaming experiences. With the SpatialLabs TrueGame application, gamers can effortlessly play supported games in a 3D mode on the device, where details of the scene are brought to life. Rooms appear more spacious, objects appear genuinely layered, and adventures become more thrilling—all smooth, in real-time, and without the need for special glasses.

SpatialLabs TrueGame is a new application that brings stereoscopic 3D to the world of gaming, letting players enjoy their favorite titles in their true glory. This is possible because games are mostly created with three dimensions in mind: developers include information about depth into each scene and object they build. SpatialLabs leverages this already-existing information in order to present the games in stereoscopic 3D. A dedicated pre-configured profile will be available for each game title among the 50+ modern and classic titles on launch in order to offer players a seamless experience with their favorite games, and profiles for additional titles will be added on a continuous basis moving forward.

The SpatialLabs experience is created through the combination of an eye-tracking solution, a stereoscopic 3D display and real-time rendering technologies. The display of the Predator Helios 300 SpatialLabs Edition gaming laptop consists of a 15.6-inch UHD 2D panel with a liquid crystal lenticular lens optically bonded on top of it, together forming an innovative module that can be switched back and forth between 2D and stereoscopic 3D views.

To power these exciting real-time 3D experiences, the Predator Helios 300 SpatialLabs Edition features up to 12th Gen Intel Core i9 processors, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Laptop GPUs, 32GB DDR5-4800 memory and PCIe Gen 4 NVMe SSDs RAID 0 storage. A dual-fan layout that includes one 5th Gen AeroBlade 3D fan helps to keep the system running cool, further supported by liquid metal thermal grease and Acer’s CoolBoost technology.

Running Windows 11, the laptop comes with Killer DoubleShot Pro and Wi-Fi 6E (E2600+1675i) connectivity in addition to a healthy range of ports, including an HDMI 2.1 port for connecting to external monitors, a Thunderbolt 4 port, and two USB 3.2 Gen2 ports.

Both the 14- and 16-inch models support blazing-fast wireless connectivity with Intel Killer Wi-Fi 6E AX1675i, while the 16-inch add an Intel Killer E2600 Ethernet controller for wired connections.

Safari to Get Smarter? Leaked Code Hints at AI Assistant

Published

on

Eagle-eyed developer Nicolás Álvarez has spotted clues in Apple’s backend code suggesting a major upgrade for Safari in iOS 18: a browsing assistant powered by artificial intelligence. MacRumors contributor Aaron Perris confirmed the existence of the code, but details remain scarce.

The assistant might leverage Apple’s privacy-focused iCloud Private Relay to transmit relevant data for analysis, potentially requiring an iCloud+ subscription. This aligns with the rumoured focus on generative AI in iOS 18, aiming to streamline iPhone experiences.

Several browsers already boast AI tools like Microsoft Edge’s GPT-4-powered Copilot and Arc Search’s webpage summarization. Apple’s assistant could offer similar functionality or even go beyond.

Another intriguing discovery by Álvarez was “Encrypted Visual Search” within the code. While details are sparse, it could be related to last year’s leak of a “Visual Search” feature for Apple’s unreleased Vision Pro headset. This feature allowed copying and pasting real-world text into apps. Perhaps Apple is refining the technology for a secure iPhone debut, or it might be an extension of the existing Visual Look Up feature for identifying objects in photos.

With Apple’s WWDC keynote scheduled for June 10th, we can expect official details on these potential features in just a few months. So, get ready for a potentially smarter Safari experience in iOS 18!
