Acer Nitro 5 AN517-53 review: Affordable gaming laptop with RTX 3050

Raytracing for the middle class. Ray tracing was reserved for expensive high-end graphics cards in the past. With the GeForce RTX 3050 (Ti), Nvidia now brings the exciting technology to the mid-range range. We test the GPU with the Acer Nitro 5 AN517-53-54DQ.

The Acer Nitro 5, which is very popular due to its usually good price-performance ratio, exists in various CPU and GPU configurations. We took one of the cheapest models, the AN517-53-54DQ, and put it through its paces. The 17-incher, which wanders over the (virtual) counter for just under 1,000 Euro (~$1180), can fall back on a quad-core processor from Intel's current Tiger-Lake generation, more precisely the Core i5-11300H.

Demanding graphics calculations (the notebook supports Nvidia's Optimus technology) are taken care of by the GeForce RTX 3050 laptop GPU, a brand new mid-range chip based on Nvidia's Ampere architecture. The operating system (Windows 10 Home 64 bit) is installed on a 512 GB NVMe SSD in M.2 format. The display is a matte IPS panel with 1,920 x 1,080 pixels and 144 Hz.

Buyers will have to make some concessions when it comes to the working memory. The installed 8 GB DDR4 RAM is only single-rank and only runs in single-channel mode, which sometimes costs more and sometimes results in less performance depending on the (3D) application.

The Nitro 5 AN517-53-54DQ's competitors include other affordable 17-inch gamers with quad-core CPUs and mid-range GPUs like the Lenovo Legion 5 17IMH05, the MSI GF75 Thin 10SCXR and the Asus TUF FX705DT-AU068T, which are all still equipped with the old GeForce GTX 1650, the predecessor of the RTX 3050. We also compared the HP Omen 15-ek0456ng with a GeForce GTX 1660 Ti for the test.

Since the chassis is mostly identical to the recently reviewed Acer Nitro 5 AN517-41-R5Z7, we will not go into more detail about the chassis, the equipment (interfaces, etc.) and the input devices in this article. You can find the corresponding information in the linked review. The only striking change concerns the keyboard. Instead of a white lettered and RGB illuminated keyboard, the Nitro 5 AN517-53-54DQ offers a red model (both lettering and illumination).

* ... smaller is better

While the black value (0.23 cd/m²) and the contrast (1,243:1) of our test device are convincing, the brightness is not impressive. An average of 261 cd/m² is sufficient for most indoor areas, but the 17-inch device clearly lacks brightness in brighter places (conservatory, terrace, etc.). We would expect an average of at least 300 cd/m² even for a budget gamer.

However, the color space turns out to be the biggest weakness. 55% sRGB coverage and around 38% Adobe RGB coverage are very disappointing and make for a rather pale picture. Among the comparison devices, only the MSI GF75 performs similarly poorly. The same applies to the color accuracy, although the Lenovo Legion 5 also leaves something to be desired here.

The other rates are rather unspectacular. For example, the response time of just under 19 ms black-to-white and 25 ms gray-to-grey is neither bad nor particularly good. We could not determine flickering at reduced brightness. The viewing angles are on the usual IPS level.

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
18.8 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 10.8 ms rise
↘ 8 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 0.1 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 36 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (21.4 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
24.8 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 12.4 ms rise
↘ 12.4 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. » 30 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (33.6 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 17788 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

Test conditions - Nitro Sense hardly offers any options

In contrast to other gaming notebooks from Acer, the preinstalled Nitro Sense tool has very few functions and options. Besides the fan control, you can only change the energy-saving plan. Our measurements were performed in the delivery state (see screenshot).

Processor

As mentioned before, the Core i5-11300H is a quad-core model from the Tiger Lake series, which is finally no longer manufactured in the outdated 14 nm process that Intel used for years. The 10 nm CPU offers 8 MB L3 cache and can process up to 8 threads in parallel via Hyper-Threading. Compared to the classic 6- and 8-core chips, the TDP is only 35 instead of 45 watts. According to the HWiNFO tool, the processor in the Nitro 5 is set to 40 watts PL1 and 64 watts PL2. The clock - depending on the application and load - is between 3.1 and 4.4 GHz under load.

We checked how the CPU behaves over a long period of time using Cinebench R15. The Core i5-11300H's performance remained fairly constant in the loop and, as expected, placed itself above the old Core i5-10300H in the loop.

Cinebench R15 Multi long-term test

System performance

Despite the modest memory configuration, it is enough for the first place in the test field in the system benchmarks. PCMark 10 sees the Nitro 5 between 8% and 40% ahead of the competition, whereby the everyday Windows experience should feel very similar on all devices in terms of boot time and loading times, etc.

Mass storage

There is praise for the fast mass storage. While SATA III SSDs with a maximum of 500 - 600 MB/s were common in the budget sector in the past, fast PCIe/NVMe SSDs are slowly but surely part of the standard repertoire. The Nitro 5 offers a particularly powerful representative of this guild with the 512 GB version of the SK Hynix BC711, which leaves the NVMe models of the competitors behind, sometimes significantly.

Nice: If you want to expand the storage space, you will find a free M.2 slot and a 2.5-inch bay inside the case (suitable cable included).

Graphics card

The most interesting aspect for many users might be the GPU. While we were able to examine the mobile GeForce RTX 3050 Ti once or twice in the past, there have hardly been any benchmark results for the RTX 3050 so far. Compared to the RTX 3050 Ti, the DirectX 12 model has to make do with 2,048 instead of 2,560 shaders.

However, the performance primarily depends on the cooling system (keyword clock margin) and the set TGP. The latter varies between 35 and 80 watts for the RTX 3050 (without Dynamic Boost). In the case of the Nitro 5, it is 75 watts including Dynamic Boost, so it is a pretty good value that is in the upper third.

We see the limited video memory as the weak point. Both the RTX 3050 and the RTX 3050 Ti only have 4 GB of GDDR6 VRAM (128-bit interface), which is no longer up-to-date in 2021 and especially in view of the VRAM requirements of many current games and has a negative impact on the future-proofing of the laptop. Even in the mid-range segment, at least 6 GB would be appropriate by now.

However, the Ampere GPU has an easy game against the old GTX 1650, which still had to do without ray tracing support. In the 3DMark tests, the lead is usually 30 to 40%. However, it does not quite reach the GTX 1660 Ti's level - that was to be expected beforehand.

Gaming performance

Analogous to the synthetic benchmarks, the mobile GeForce RTX 3050 also ranks between the GTX 1650 (Ti) and the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti in the gaming course, whereby the frame rate sometimes tends more in one and sometimes more in the other direction depending on the game and VRAM consumption.

Overall, the GeForce RTX 3050 Laptop GPU is fast enough to run most titles in the native resolution of 1,920 x 1,080 with high to maximum details. It only gets tight when ray tracing is enabled or very computationally intensive and/or moderately optimized games like Assassin's Creed Valhalla and Cyberpunk 2077, where even medium settings become a challenge. The RTX 3050 is hardly suitable for QHD and 4K games. For this, we recommend a high-end device with an GeForce RTX 3060 upwards.
