Reviews for the Acer Nitro 5 AN515-58-527S

70% Acer Nitro 5 review: An affordable gaming laptop with killer value
Source: PC World English
The Acer Nitro 5 is a good value for gamers looking to maximum game performance on a slim budget. Nvidia’s RTX 3060 is given the space and power it needs to deliver strong results. For many, this alone will be enough to make the Nitro 5 a contender. However, a number of flaws hold the Nitro 5 back from its full potential. The display isn’t great, the battery is too small, and the Core i5-12500H processor is only at its best in heavily multithreaded workloads. This narrows the Nitro 5’s focus. It’s excellent for gaming, but students and content creators seeking a versatile budget powerhouse will need to keep looking.

Acer Nitro 5 AN515-58-527S (2022) Review
Source: Reviewed.com English
The Nitro 5 is a laptop built first and foremost for gamers. Its high-refresh display, powerful graphics card, and hefty chassis give it the performance necessary to run games like Shadow of the Tomb Raider at high framerates without a hitch. While the loaded configuration we tested is a little costly at $1,299, it's well worth the price. However, if you’re looking for a laptop that is good for more than gaming, you could feel trapped by the Nitro 5’s bulky design and short battery life, which severely limit its portability. You can snag the Asus ROG Strix G15 AMD Advantage Edition for the same price as the Nitro 5 or less on sale, and it outperforms the Nitro 5 for non-ray tracing gaming. It also sports a notably thinner chassis and has nine hours of battery life, but you’d still be getting a mediocre display. If you want a gaming laptop with a great display that won’t break the bank, the HP Victus 16, a laptop with a beautiful metal chassis and a vivid display, offers a similar configuration for almost the same price as the Nitro 5.
