Acer's Nitro series is extremely popular among gamers mainly because of the kind of performance it brings to the table at a relatively affordable price point. The company already has a bunch of different variants of this particular laptop on the market, but we now have yet another variant. After launching the AMD Ryzen-powered variant a few days back, Acer has now launched a variant that's powered by the Intel processor.
The new Acer Nitro 5 gaming laptop is powered by the 11th generation Intel Core i5-11300H processor. The H-series processor, for those of you who don't know, is usually deployed in systems with higher-powered, discrete graphics. They have much higher thermal design power than the standard U-series.
It is coupled with Nvidia's GeForce GTX 1650 GPU with 4 GB GDDR6 memory to handle gaming. The laptop also packs up to 32GB DDR4 RAM and a 512GB PCIe NVMe SSD for faster performance. The Nitro 5 gaming laptop sports a 15.6-inch FHD IPS display with support for up to 144Hz refresh rate and 3ms response time, making it perfect for gaming.
The laptop also brings a couple of other interesting things to the table like the Thin Bezel design, CoolBoost Technology, industry-leading CPU performance, immersive graphics, amazing AI acceleration, and best-in-class wired and wireless connectivity. In terms of the battery, the Nitro 5 has a 4-cell 57.5 Wh battery which the company claims can last up to 8.50 hours on a single charge.
