Your GPU options will be limited to either a GTX 1050/1050Ti or Radeon RX560
Acer has announced a new refreshed Nitro 5 gaming laptop with either 8th Gen Intel Core processors or AMD’s Ryzen processors.
The new Nitro 5 ships with a 6-core 8th Gen Intel Core processor alongside a Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 or 1050Ti GPU or an AMD Ryzen 5 processor with Radeon RX560 GPU. Acer has also seen fit to update the design of the laptop to feature laser textured lid and a matte, crimson red hinge that acts a contrast from the rest of the aesthetic.
“The new Nitro 5 has been developed keeping the fact in mind that, gamers want powerful specs to enable great experiences on the go at affordable price point and this product is designed to tackle these needs specifically. The advanced features and the latest hardware with a refreshed striking exterior adds to its uniqueness and provides the feeling of intensity to a gamer”, said Chandrahas Panigrahi, CMO & Consumer Business Head, Acer India commenting on the launch.
Intel variants of the laptop also support Optane memory which Acer claims – “Gives fast read and write speeds, quick loading and restarting in mere seconds so players can get to the action immediately”. The RAM has also been clocked at 2666MHz and the laptop comes with Acer’s proprietary cooling management system.
The Nitro 5 has a 15.6 inch full HD IPS display and comes integrated with Dolby Audio Premium speakers which the company claims have been finely tuned and enhanced. Acer’s TrueHarmony technology tweaks the sound parameters so that gamers “can hone in on the faintest sound of tip-toeing attackers, and then relish in the reverberating boom of a carefully-placed landmine”.
Besides these, there is also support for dual-stream 802 wireless with a peak speed of 1.7 GBPs plus a number of ports such as a USB Type-C, HDMI 2.0 and Gigabit Ethernet. The Acer Nitro 5 will be available in India at ACER Exclusive stores, Major retailers and E-commerce sites. Prices starts at Rs 65,999 for the AMD based model and Rs 72,999 for the 6 Core Intel processor based model.
