Acer has introduced a refreshed Nitro 5 with AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX and NVIDIA RTX 3080 Mobile internals. The Nitro 5 is also being offered with three display options, one of which includes a 360 Hz FHD panel.

Last year's Nitro 5 paired the Ryzen 5 4600H with a GTX 1650 Ti. This time, we are seeing Acer announcing a new Nitro 5 gaming laptop with high-performing internals from AMD and NVIDIA that were just announced during CES 2021.

The new Acer Nitro 5 is powered by the AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX processor, which is an 8C/16T part with a 45 W+ TDP. Not being content with that, the Nitro 5 also features an NVIDIA RTX 3080 Mobile for that added oomph while gaming.

Acer said that the Nitro 5 can support up to 2 TB of NVMe storage and 2 TB of HDD storage with buyers also having the option of configuring the device with up to 32 GB of RAM. Wi-Fi 6 and Killer E2600 LAN provide fast low-latency network connectivity for online gaming.

Acer is offering three display options with the Nitro 5, which is available in both 15.6 and 17.3-inch versions. Buyers can choose from a QHD 165 Hz, FHD 144 Hz, and FHD 360 Hz refresh rates. Acer said all display options come with a 3 ms, and the QHD panel covers 100% of the sRGB color space. 

Keeping the innards cool is AcerCoolBoost technology with four exhaust vents. Acer offers the NitroSense app to allow gamers to automatically monitor or adjust cooling needs as required.

The Acer Nitro 5 15.6-inch (AN515-45) will be available from May with prices starting from €899 for the 15.6-inch version. The 17.3-inch Nitro 5 (AN517-41) will be available from April starting from €999.

I am a cell and molecular biologist and computers have been an integral part of my life ever since I laid my hands on my first PC which was based on an Intel Celeron 266 MHz processor, 16 MB RAM and a modest 2 GB hard disk. Since then, I’ve seen my passion for technology evolve with the times. From traditional floppy based storage and running DOS commands for every other task, to the connected cloud and shared social experiences we take for granted today, I consider myself fortunate to have witnessed a sea change in the technology landscape. I honestly feel that the best is yet to come, when things like AI and cloud computing mature further. When I am not out finding the next big cure for cancer, I read and write about a lot of technology related stuff or go about ripping and re-assembling PCs and laptops.
