Acer Nitro 5 (AN517-52) review – 17-inches of reasonably priced gaming
Source: Laptop Media English
Indeed, 17-inch gaming notebooks are not that popular, compared to their 15-inch siblings. They are more difficult to handle, take more space, and generally, they look like something’s wrong with them. However, the benefits of having a larger screen can be numerous. First of all, in many cases, you don’t need an external monitory, just because, the 17-inch display is big enough for home use.

80% Acer Nitro 5 (A517) review
Source: Tech Advisor English
Overall, Acer has done a great job of building a 17in gaming laptop for those on a tighter budget. Coming in at under £1,000 in the UK but you get a Core i7 chip, 120Hz screen and, most importantly an RTX 2060 GPU.

Acer Nitro 5 (2021, AMD) initial review: An affordable, customisable gaming laptop
Source: Pocket Lint English
Whether the ongoing questions of the series from before - light bleed, excess fan noise, limited battery life - continue here we'll need to do some more thorough testing. But at this price such foibles are forgivable for all the potential gaming joy the Nitro 5 can bring.

Comment

Acer: The company was founded under the name of Multitech in Taiwan in 1976 and renamed to Acer or Acer Group in 1987. The product range includes, for example, laptops, tablets, smartphones, desktops, monitors and televisions. Gateway Inc. and Packard Bell also belong to the Group and sell their own laptops.

While Acer still had the third largest global market share in the notebook segment in 2008, it ranked 6th in 2016 with a market share of 6% after they had continuously lost market shares.

There are dozens of Acer laptop reviews per month, the ratings are average (as of 2016). Gateway, which has an own laptop line-up, has also belonged to the Acer Group since 2007.


With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 Mobile: Mid range dedicated graphics card for laptops based on the desktop GTX 1650 and therefore the Turing architecture (TU117 chip in 12nm FFN) without raytracing and Tensor cores. Available with 896 and 1024 shaders.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 Ti Mobile: Mid range dedicated graphics card for laptops based on the desktop GTX 1660 Ti and therefore the Turing architecture without raytracing and Tensor cores. The performance of the Max-P variant should be similar to an older GTX 1070.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 Mobile: Mid range to high end laptop graphics card based on the Turing architecture with raytracing features and 1,920 shaders. Compared to the similar named desktop card it offers reduced clock rates.

These graphics cards are able to play the latest and most demanding games in high resolutions and full detail settings with enabled Anti-Aliasing.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 Laptop GPU: High-End laptop graphics card based on the Ampere GA106 chip with 3072 cores. Available in different versions with a TDP from 60 to 115 Watt.

i7-10750H: On Comet Lake architecture (4th gen of Skylake) based processor for big and heavy laptops. Integrates six processor cores clocked at 2.6 - 5 GHz (most likely 4.3 GHz with 6 cores) that support HyperThreading. Manufactured in an improved 14nm process (14nm++).

i5-10300H: On Comet Lake architecture (4th gen of Skylake) based processor for big and heavy laptops. Integrates four processor cores clocked at 2.5 - 4.5 GHz (4.2 GHz with 4 cores) that support HyperThreading.

2.2 kg:

Usually subnotebooks, ultrabooks and quite lightweight laptops with 12-16 inch display-diagonal weigh as much.

2.7 kg:

This weight is representative for typical laptops with a 14-16 inch display-diagonal.


80%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
