82.2% Acer Nitro 5 AN515-45 in review: Compact QHD gaming laptop | Notebookcheck
The Ryzen 7 APU and the GeForce RTX 3070 laptop GPU bring all the latest games smoothly onto the matte QHD display. Because of the low TGP, the GPU performs below its capabilities. The laptop offers space for three storage drives.
70% Acer Nitro 5 (2021, 15-inch)
Source: PC Mag English
Though the Acer Nitro 5 can be had in an admirably wide range of configurations, our $1,699 review unit didn't perform as well as it should have against the Alienware m15 Ryzen Edition R5 and the Lenovo Legion 5 Pro, our top picks for mid- to high-end 15.6-inch gaming rigs. Thus our kick-down from four stars in 2020's tested model to our 3.5-star rating on this one. In its $1,299-and-under guises, however, the Nitro 5 should deliver the expected features and good battery life to remain one of our top budget gaming laptops, and it can even challenge Acer's Predator Helios 300 in overall performance thanks to its strong AMD CPU. Few laptops offer as much value for the money.

The Acer Nitro 5 is a cheaper budget friendly gaming laptop, but lower price often means missing out on features and cost cutting.

Acer's Nitro 5 budget gaming laptop has had costs cut so far the RTX 3060 performs worse than a GTX 1660 Ti from years ago. I've tested games to see how it compares with other gaming laptops.
