Acer Nitro laptops are one of the best gaming laptops that are available for an affordable value.
The new Acer Nitro 5 shouts gaming as it comes with the red & black accent. There is a red-backlit gaming keyboard, and the display has cut-outs at the top that makes it look like a gaming machine.
Earlier, the company has launched the Nitro series with the Intel 10th Gen processors, but now, after huge demand for the Ryzen 4000 series, we finally have the latest AMD 4000H processor-based Nitro 5.
The laptop features a 15.6 inches Full HD IPS panel display with In- Panel switching technology.
It has a LED Backlit TFT LCD panel with ComfyView. The screen has 1920 * 1080, a 16:9 aspect ratio, and 45% NTSC color gamut. Notably, this is not a very color-accurate panel and not ideal for content creators, but gamers will not find it to be bad.
On the positive side, It allows us to set a higher refresh rate up to 144 Hz. The panel also has a low latency of 3ms. It is ideal for fast-paced titles like CS: GO, Volarant, and Battlefield.
The laptop is powered by a Ryzen 7 4800H (an 8 Cores processor with 16 threads, 7Nm) gaming processor AMD. The Ryzen 4800H is an absolute beast that comes with a 2.9 GHz core clock speed and has a 4.2 GHz Boost clock speed.
It is far better than the Intel Core i7 10750H and is ideal for gaming as well as content creation and day-to-day tasks.
Specs and Features
Additionally, the laptop comes with the Acer CoolBoost technology that can cool the machine when gaming or under a heavy workload.
It runs on Windows 10 Home Operating System.
The Nitro 5 comes with an entry-level graphics card – NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 with 4 GB GDDR6 VRAM. It’s not the most powerful GPU and can barely push demanding AAA titles to 60 FPS.
If you are looking for something more powerful, you can take a look at the Asus TUF series of gaming laptops.
As far as the memory is concerned, it arrives with 8 GB DDR4 RAM with 2933 Mhz clock speed, and the Ram is user expandable up to 32 GB using two SODIMM modules.
Unlike most laptops that come with just the soldered Ram, Acer is giving an option to upgrade the Ram that is great for future upgrades.
The storage involves 256 GB NVMe SSD + 1TB 2.5 inch (7200 rpm).
The laptop weighs 2.3 kg with a height of 25.5cm. Considering the weight of the machine, it is not too heavy and is comparable to the HP-Omen or the Asus Tuf A series of machines.
It packs a battery of 57.5 WHr, which claims to have a life of about 10 hours. In practical day-to-day usage, we can expect it to run for 5 hours on the battery when you are not gaming.
