Acer Nitro 17 Ryzen edition review: The QHD gaming laptop with an RTX 4070

A successful gaming laptop even based on AMD. The present Acer Nitro 17 combines a Ryzen 7 7735HS with a GeForce RTX 4070 for about US$1,900. In this review, you can find out whether this combination can magic enough frames onto the internal QHD display when running new games, too.

After previously testing a model with the Core i7-13700H and GeForce RTX 4060, now we are taking a look at the laptop's similarly priced brother, the AN17-41-R9LN with an AMD processor and a slightly more powerful GeForce RTX 4070 (also 8 GB GDDR6 VRAM). Similar to the Intel version, a 16:9 QHD panel with a refresh rate of 165 Hz and a resolution of 2,560 x 1,440 pixels is used as a screen. In addition, there are 2x 8 GB DDR5-4800 RAM and a 1 TB NVMe SSD installed. There are also no surprises in its operating system with the laptop having Windows 11 Home installed.

Since the device's case is identical to its Intel counterpart apart from its connectivity options (the AMD variant doesn't have a Thunderbolt 4 port and instead has 2x USB 4), we will not go further into its case, features and input devices in this article. You can find the corresponding information in the review of the AN17-51-71ER.

Its IPS panel might not be the brightest at 337 cd/m² on average, but as long as you stay indoors, its brightness levels are fine. Its reaction times, black value (0.35 cd/m²) and contrast (1.000:1) also prove to be no reason for the laptop to hide from its competitors - although, there is still a little room for improvement.

For a gaming laptop, its color spaces (100 % sRGB, 98 % P3 and 86 % AdobeRGB) are unusually good. Its color accuracy is good, too and doesn't require much calibration.

The laptop's viewing angles are typical for an IPS panel, so quite good. Unfortunately, our test device had a bit of a problem with screen bleeding along the edges of the display.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
8.6 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 3.8 ms rise
↘ 4.8 ms fall
The screen shows fast response rates in our tests and should be suited for gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.1 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 19 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (21.3 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
14.3 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 7.1 ms rise
↘ 7.2 ms fall
The screen shows good response rates in our tests, but may be too slow for competitive gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.2 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 24 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (33.4 ms).

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM not detected

In comparison: 53 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 17490 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

Performance

Although the Ryzen 7 7735HS has to make do with the older Zen 3+ architecture (some 7000 models already rely on Zen 4), we would still count the Nitro 17 AN17-41-R9LN to the upper mid-range field. Its 16 GB RAM and 1 TB SSD are no longer a highlight in the year 2023, but they are still adequate.

Testing conditions

Acer has pre-installed a tool called Nitro Sense, which can be used to make numerous changes to the system (e.g. the keyboard illumination). The different performance modes are especially important for everyday use. Since no real frame rate increase could be determined from 3D applications onwards but the noise emissions increased significantly, we performed all measurements in the Balanced mode - which represents the sweet spot, so to speak. The fan control was always in automatic mode.

Processor

The Ryzen 7 7735HS is an octa-core processor which has 16 MB of L3 cache and can process up to 16 threads at once thanks to SMT. AMD has indicated the 6 nm model as having a clock rate of 3.2 to 4.75 GHz under load, which is neither little nor a lot. One of its biggest advantages is its comparatively powerful iGPU. During undemanding tasks (the device supports Advanced Optimus), only the Radeon 680M built into the processor is active - which can compete with older entry-level and partly also mid-range GPUs.

The Ryzen 7 7735HS did well but not exceedingly during the benchmarks. Its performance was (as expected) slightly worse than its (more expensive) Intel competitor, the Core i7-13700H, which features 14 cores and can process 20 threads simultaneously. Compared to a Core i9-13900HX or a Ryzen 9 7945HX with Zen 4 architecture, the 7735HS didn't stand a chance and did quite a bit worse. Even so, the CPU performance remained very consistent according to our Cinebench loop - this can't be said for all other laptops.
