    No mux is strange as both Predator 300 and Nitro 5 2022 were first launced in China, and the Chinese reviewers and buyers confirmed there is a mux switch in 2022 model. Furthermore, Acer updated new BIOS for Nitro 2022 in late March to enable the mux switch in software. (Nitro and Predator 300 2022 shares the same mainboard)

      Thanks. I've updated the article. Due to the early nature of the BIOS on my unit, there's no MUX support. Acer doesn't allow me to update the BIOS on these samples, so I'll see if they can do it for me and will uppdate.

    Weird question, but I was wondering if you are allowed to show the pulsar lighting section (in the PredatorSense app) of this latest Acer Predator Helios 300 2022 model. Just to check what kind of RGB lighting option it offers for keyboard and light bar below.

      I didn't take a pic of it and no longer have the unit around. Sry. The options are per-key control over each key, a dozen or so of effects, and something more basic for the lightbar at the front.

    is kinda of shame to see all segment of 2022 model are dont have sata hdd on it, just for 90 WaH batteries they sacrifice sata slot with leave a lot waste space on it.

    why they have bad habit like this? on smartphone side they forcefully remove microsd and using oled thingy.
