Hey, there. Few month ago I bought this laptop and it’s awesome, though it has some cons. I’ll describe everything in this thread. Also I’m searching for someone, who will share his time and help me crack its’ bios :)

Also this laptop has a bigger brother – Acer Predator G9 793, absolutely same laptop but with 17inch panel, 4k variant and 4 speakers.

 

First of all, good sides:

 

  • Solid construction, soft touch martial all over the case, no glossy parts.

  • Sound is really loud, even basses exists here, though I can’t say its best of the best.

  • Outstanding performance, take a look at this data https://goo.gl/oyF9dl, almost all games run over 60 fps in 1080 and over 30 fps in 4k. Take a look a several gameplay videos that I’ve captures on this beast, all of them were captured in 4k resolution, on ultra settings with no AA:

 

Rise of Tomb Raider - https://youtu.be/rNRMnytsC2c
The Witcher 3 - https://youtu.be/dJicr6we0z0
Quantum Break - https://youtu.be/PNofDssIgS4
(1080 with max AA) Crysis 3 - https://youtu.be/H1ja_BhD0-Q
Resident Evil 7 - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LiF-zhTwNDE
Battlefield 1 - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ypOEnJ9KbKs
Dishonored 2 - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jhtvj4BkiMc

 

Only in  Ghost Recon Wildlands I had less then 30 fps https://youtu.be/lbeW9PZvsUo

 

And bad sides:

Played Mass Effect: Andromeda in 4k on ultra settings. Alas, another game that my 1070 is not particularly dragging. An average of 30 fps, but there are drawdowns and up to 20.

As a result, I decreased rendering by 20% from 4k resolution and fps became 40-45.

Gameplay: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q-dhsKtJjok and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NxcTEFqQ-Go

Two new videos :)

First, the replacement of thermal paste: https://youtu.be/8tnYBbDpmYo

And secondly, Destiny 2 at the maximum settings, with disabled anti-aliasing and 4k game. 30 fps stable, with rare sagging. In 1080 fps goes under a hundred:

      Hello everyone,
      some time by now I flashed a custom Vbios (thank you Klem) on an Acer Predator 15 G9-591 and I started doing some tests about how far I could go overclocking the gtx 970m without running too hot. With the voltage up to 1150mV and something like 300 additional MHz for the core clock, in the strongest stress condition for both Gpu and Cpu ( i7-6700hq undervolted), the Gpu reaches a max temp of 85C (with some 86 spikes but never more than that).
      Considering that soon I'm going to relid both Cpu and Gpu and clean everything in the internals (laptop is 4 years old) I think I'm going to have some additional heatroom.
      I've already tested some further overclocking and I noticed that even if the temperatures remains under 93C (which is just for testing purposes, but after relidding temps could be nicer) graphical glitches occur and after some time most games crash. But my question is, could it be because of lack of power supply? The laptop charger provides 180W 
      Could there be an increase in overclock margins with a 230W psu or something like that? (Obviously with the same 19.5V output)
      If anybody tried something like that on any laptop model, or knows the matter, I'd like to know

      I have always been a big fan of Windows 7. I have 4 Media PCs throughout my house and a laptop. I have recently updated some of them to Windows 10 Pro. I have tried everything to get them talking on my LAN. I cannot share files anymore. They all ping, but are missing in the network folder. Thank God for Plex. Any advice?

      Hi guys,
       
      I'm sorry for making another thread just for this but I really wanted to pick your brains on this!
       
      I have an m15x with a 770m running windows 7 and everything works. Rock. Solid. I'm pretty happy with it. Since windows 7 is on it's way out, I would like to upgrade to windows 10. Now I've looked into it before and had a really hard time getting the 770m to behave nicely and had all these issues with green/yellow/pink screens and I remember it being a miracle I got it to work on 7 as good as it does.
       
      My question is how well does the 970m install vs the 770m - particularly on windows 10? I would buy it in a heartbeat if it makes the install less tedious with the colored screens and all that. Especially if all the functions work on it! I have been searching the internet and I cannot find nearly as many problems with the 970m as I could with the 770m, or am I just  not looking in the right places?
       
      Thanks a million!

      Hello. I'm currently running windows 10 on bios version 1.00 and want to upgrade to 1.03 but cannot boot Ms dos flash in uefi. There is no option to enable Legacy mode and the option to disable uefi in bios is greed out. When I try booting from flash in bios, it shows black screen and returns back to bios screen. My rig is a p157sm. Any help will be appreciated as I'm looking to install prema bios mod.
