Released last year, Acer’s SpatialLabs technology is a glasses-free stereoscopic 3D solution. When it was introduced, the company was focused on designers and creators. Last week, Acer announced the Predator Helios 300 SpatialLabs Edition gaming laptop which brings glasses-free, stereoscopic 3D to over 50 games for gamers.

The Acer Predator Helios 300 gaming laptop 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 in RAID 0 storage configuration. It’s the 15.60inch UHD 2D panel with a liquid crystal lenticular lens optically bonded to the surface allows gamers to switch back and forth between 2D and glasses-free stereoscopic 3D viewing.

“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. By integrating our SpatialLabs technology with our Predator gaming laptops, we hope to create a new category ofimmersive gaming experiences.”

When used in conjunction with the SpatialLabs TrueGame application, supported games become more immersive with their dedicated pre-configured profiles. As you can imagine, this will no doubt enhance the gaming experience. Rounding out the specs on the Acer Predator Helios 300 SpatialLabs Edition are Killer DoubleShot Pro and Wi-Fi 6E support, Acer’s CoolBoost technology, an HDMI 2.1 port, a Thunderbolt 4 port, and two USB 3.2 Gen2 ports.
