Acer’s new Nitro 5 gaming notebooks, plus its new Aspire 5 and 7 notebooks, powered by AMD Ryzen 5000 Series Mobile Processors are now available. With up to 8 cores of processing power, they combine low-power high-bandwidth memory with low power consumption and up to double the data rates achieved by the previous generation of RAM, making them ideal for the new Nitro and Aspire notebooks.
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 Series Laptop GPUs, powered by the NVIDIA Ampere architecture, increase energy efficiency by up to 2x, accelerate performance dramatically and introduce third-generation Max-Q technologies for thin and lightweight designs. GeForce RTX 30 Series Laptop GPUs deliver stunning ray-traced gaming experiences in Cyberpunk 2077 and other top titles and enable creators to produce incredible content using hundreds of GPU-accelerated apps.
Acer Nitro 5 – Get Into the Game
Acer’s Nitro 5 gaming notebook line gets a significant upgrade with the addition of up to an AMD Ryzen 9 5900 HX Mobile Processor and up to an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Laptop GPU. Rounding out this powerful CPU/GPU combo are two slots for an M.2 PCIe and/or SATA SSD (supporting up to 2TB NVMe SSD / 2TB HDD), up to 32 GB of DDR4 3200 RAM and fast networking via Killer E2600 support and Wi-Fi 61.
The new Nitro 5 notebooks are available with 15.6-inch or 17.3-inch displays, featuring a quad high-definition (QHD) display with a 165 Hz refresh rate or a full high-definition (FHD) display with up to a 360 Hz refresh rate. With a 3 ms response time, visuals are clean with minimal ghosting. Acer also kept colours bright with a 300-nit panel that covers 100% of the sRGB colour gamut and made the screen more attractive by boosting its screen-to-body ratio to 80% with narrow 0.27-inch (7.02 mm) bezels1.
Twin fans, Acer CoolBoost technology and four strategically placed exhaust ports keep the Nitro 5 running cool. CoolBoost monitors fan speed and increases it when necessary to optimise total performance. Users can monitor and manage the system in real-time with NitroSense, giving them control over thermal management, fan speed and more.
Acer Aspire 7
New models in the Aspire 7 line feature the powerful new AMD Ryzen 5000 Series Mobile Processor paired with an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 GPU.
All that power is housed in a chassis weighing just 4.73 lbs (2.15 kg), making it portable enough to work on-the-go without compromising on performance. With up to 32 GB of DDR4 memory1 and up to a 1 TB PCIe SSD1, it’s a powerful productivity machine that’s up for a challenge.
It also features the latest connectivity, with USB-C for superfast data transfer at up to 5 Gbps. Dual-band Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) improves average network throughput by up to 3 times and reduces latency by up to 75 percent compared to Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac).
Its slim design includes a stunning FHD 15.6-inch display with a narrow bezel, delivering an 81.61 percent screen-to-body ratio. Acer Color Intelligence and Acer ExaColor work in tandem to deliver highly accurate visuals. Acer Colour Intelligence provides a more brilliant and vivid display with less CPU loading. It dynamically adjusts gamma and saturation in real-time to optimise screen colour and brightness without clipping or over-saturation.
Lastly, its thermal design offers multiple cooling modes, ensuring the notebook runs cool and quiet. With a single touch of the shortcut “Fn+F,” the fan speed can be alternated between silent normal or performance.
Acer Aspire 5
The newest Aspire 5 also features powerful new AMD Ryzen 5000 Series Mobile Processors, AMD Radeon RX 640 GPUs1, 24 GB memory and up to a 1 TB M.2 PCIe SSD NVMe1 and/or up to a 2TB HDD1.
Its slim 0.70-inch (17.95 mm) design and sandblasted aluminium cover give it a sleek polished appearance. Its narrow border design surrounds a 15.6-inch FHD IPS display, which also includes Acer BlueLightShield technologies to reduce the emission of potentially harmful blue light.
Like the Aspire 7, it also offers the latest connectivity with USB-C for superfast data transfer, dual-band Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax)3 and a thermal design with multiple cooling modes.
