There is a downside, of course, as the brand itself has to create 3D profiles for each game, and it’s not enough that we just start one to see the full potential of this screen. Here, reassuringly, Acer tells us we’ll have 50+ games already supported when it’s Acer Predator Helios 300 SpatialLabs Edition Market access.
As for the hardware, we have a 2K panel of 15.6, with the peculiarity that if we use the 3D mode, the resolution is reduced by half because every two pixels, one will be directed towards one eye, and the other towards the other.
