86.7% Acer Nitro 16 AN16-41 Review: Affordable gaming laptop with RTX 4050 and long run times | Notebookcheck
A Ryzen 5 7535HS, GeForce RTX 4050, USB 4, and a bright 16:10 display (16-inch, WUXGA, 165 Hz, G-Sync) are the highlights of the relatively inexpensive (€1,250) Nitro 16. Under the right conditions, the already very good battery run times of the predecessor further surpassed. This review evaluates the performance and other characteristics of this alternate configuration.

Acer Nitro 16 (2023) Review
Source: USA Today English
The gaming performance and bright, crisp 1200p display make the Acer Nitro 16 a surprisingly capable gaming laptop, especially considering its relatively low price of $1,200. Budget gaming laptops are an exercise in tradeoffs, and many manufacturers make cuts in the wrong areas, but Acer doesn’t here. The Nitro 16 doesn’t chase pure performance, falling back on an RTX 4050 instead of an RTX 4060, but its display and battery are ahead of options like the MSI Katana 15. The 16:10 display is perfect for editing photos or documents in addition to gaming. The areas where the laptop does falter are easier to deal with than some alternatives, like the Acer Nitro 16’s sound. It’s not terrible, but it’s not particularly impactful. If you’re using the laptop for gaming, however, you may want to use a gaming headset anyway, in which case the relatively weak speakers don’t matter as much. This is true of the pre-installed software as well: once you’ve gone through the trouble of uninstalling it, you don’t have to worry about it anymore.

How to open Acer Nitro 16 (AN16-51) - disassembly and upgrade options

Acer Nitro 16 (AN16-51) review – great display and performance in one place
Source: Laptop Media English
The Acer Nitro 16 (AN16-51) is a real gem for people who don’t want to spend too much money on a gaming laptop. It has a stable base, and a comfortable backlit keyboard alongside an accurate touchpad. The design is typical for a gaming device with aggressive lines and “Lamborghini-like exhausts” on the back. The 16″ IPS display with G-Sync support is a rare find in this price segment. It has a 1600p resolution and 96% sRGB color coverage. Thanks to our “Gaming and Web design” profile, the color accuracy reaches an average dE value of just 1.0 which is awesome! This makes the display suitable for content creation and color-sensitive work. The panel is also PWM-free so you can use it for long hours of work but as always, you have to take short breaks from time to time. The performance of the laptop is very good. The thirsty Core i7-13700H is well-cooled and can maintain high frequencies and power limits.

70% Acer Nitro 16 Review
Source: Trusted Reviews English
The Nitro 16 is a bit of a conundrum. There are a lot of good-budget gaming laptops at the £1000 to £1500 price point, some packing the faster RTX 4060 GPU. We’ve yet to look at the Asus ROG Strix G16 or the MSI Cyborg 15, but both come with the aforementioned NVIDIA chip and promise great 1080p gaming at a slightly lower price point. We’ve just looked at the Gigabyte G5 (2023), which manages the same trick at under £1000. The Nitro 16 brings you a faster CPU, double the 16GB of RAM and that 16-inch, QHD+ screen, but without a GPU capable of powering it, you might be wondering: what’s the point? Personally, I’d be willing to pay the extra for the additional CPU horsepower and RAM, and for the advantages the screen brings when you’re watching 4K video, playing less demanding games or simply trying to get some work done.

2023 Acer Nitro 16 Review
Source: Yugatech English
I really enjoyed our time using the 2023 Acer Nitro 16, and I’ve been impressed with everything it can do. Not to mention this isn’t Acer’s top-spec, more powerful Predator model lineup just yet. Instead, it’s the more budget-friendly model. And for those of you wondering, it is rather affordable. At the time of writing, Acer has not released the price of the Nitro 16. But if it’s anything like its predecessor, we expect it to be priced around PHP 80,000 to PHP 100,000 depending on the specs. There are a few things I wish I could change about this laptop, and one of them is the GPU. I hope Acer fitted the newer NVIDIA RTX 4000 series GPU instead of the older RTX 3050 included in this unit we have. However, the move to fit an older GPU could be to keep costs down. One other possibility is that this is an engineering unit. Another would be the keyboard layout.

AMD Rembrandt (Zen 3+):

R7 7735HS: Mobile Octa-Core APU using Zen 3+ cores clocked at 3.2 to 4.75 GHz and a RDNA2 graphics adapter with 12 CUs clocked at up to 2,200 MHz. Refresh of the Ryzen 7 6800HS with 50 MHz higher Turbo clock speed.

R5 7535HS: Mobile Hexa-Core APU using six Zen 3+ cores clocked at 3.3 to 4.55 GHz and a RDNA2 graphics card with 6 CUs clocked at up to 1,900 MHz. Refresh of the old Ryzen 5 6600HS with a 50 MHz higher boost clock speed.

AMD Phoenix (Zen 4, Ryzen 7040):

R5 7640HS: An upper mid-range processor (APU) of the Phoenix product family. It was brought to life in H1 2023 and it has 6 SMT-enabled Zen 4 cores (12 threads) running at 4.3 GHz to 5.0 GHz.

16.00:

This range for display formats was and is a rarity. It is larger than the general standard of 15 inches, but not yet in the range of large workstations. One usually has higher screen resolutions available, but portability suffers from that.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


2.56 kg:

With this weight, a laptop is rather heavier than average. Devices in this range shine more with screen size and performance than with mobility.

2.7 kg:


79.13%: This rating is not earth-shattering. This rating must actually be seen as average, since there are about as many devices with worse ratings as better ones. A purchase recommendation can only be seen with a lot of goodwill, unless it is about websites that generally rate strictly.
