Acer has announced that its new Nitro 5 gaming notebooks, which feature the latest Nvidia GeForce RTX and GTX GPUs as well as significant new developments in thermal performance, are now available at Currys PC World and other UK retailers.
The Acer Nitro 5 comes with Intel Core i7 processors, delivering 5 GHz and graphics options of a GeForce RTX 2060 or the latest GeForce GTX 1650Ti or 1650 GPUs. It comes with up to two M.2 PCle SSDs and up to 1 TB HDD for storage, and up to 32 GB of DD4R4 RAM in two user-upgradeable DIMM slots.
Available with a 15.6-inch FHD IPS display, gamers will particularly appreciate the 2020 model’s significantly improved visuals. Models with 144 Hz or 120Hz 1 refresh rates and a 3 ms response times allow for blur-free gameplay that comes to life on the device’s 72% NTSC, 300-nit panel.
The Acer Nitro 5 comes with several innovative thermal solutions in order to maximise cooling efficiency even under heavy loads. It features a dual-fan cooling system that takes advantage of strategically placed intake/exhaust ports and four heat vents to achieve an overall 25% improvement in thermal performance over the 2019 model. This is further optimised by CoolBoost technology capable of increasing fan speed by 10% and CPU/GPU cooling by 9%.
New to this year’s model, Intel Wi-Fi 6 AX201 (802.11ax) and Killer Ethernet E2600 increase network stability and performance, enabling gamers to take full advantage of these thermal improvements.
The Acer Nitro 5 gaming notebooks will be available at ACER Store, Amazon, Box, Currys PC World and other major retailers. Prices range from £649 – £1199 dependent on spec available.
