Acer Nitro V 15 ANV15-51 review: Budget gaming laptop with RTX 4050

Affordable gaming laptop. The Nitro V 15 is aimed at gamers looking for a powerful laptop in the €1,000 (US$1,085) price bracket. Read our review to find out whether the configuration with a GeForce RTX 4050 can keep pace with the competition.

Two main variants of the Nitro V 15 are available in Germany right now. Whilst the base model featured in this review costs around €900 (US$980) and comes with a Core i5-13420H (12 threads) and a 512 GB SSD, the more expensive model will set you back roughly €200 (US$218) more and boasts a Core i7-13620H (16 threads) and a 1 TB drive. Both variants are configured with the same 16 GB of DDR5 RAM and a dedicated GeForce RTX 4050. They also use a matt IPS display with the usual Full HD resolution (1,920 x 1,080) and 144Hz capability.

Case

The V 15 is aesthetically pleasing. The grey-blue design on the lid, in particular, provides a breath of fresh air. However, you shouldn't expect too much from the chassis in terms of quality. Like many other devices in this price range, buyers have to settle for a slightly flimsy and not-very-sturdy plastic chassis. At least the 15-inch laptop has a clean fit and finish as well as a solid max opening angle (approx. 140°), though its hinges could be somewhat stiffer and less "wobbly".

One of the Nitro’s biggest strengths is its moderate weight: at about 2.1 kg (4.6 lb), it is the lightest device in our comparison (the competitors weigh between 2.2 and 2.4 kg, or 4.8 and 6.2 lb). The device also doesn’t look bulky thanks to its svelte silhouette.

Specifications

Interfaces

If you ignore the lack of a card reader, the port selection can be described as adequate. Although we would have liked to see one more USB-C port, the three USB-A 3.0 and one Thunderbolt 4 port are still decent for a budget gaming laptop. The Nitro V 15 also sports a fold-out Ethernet port, a HDMI 2.1 output, an audio jack and a Kensington slot. The interfaces are fairly well distributed across the device. That said, some of the ports could have been placed slightly further back to make using a mouse easier.

Connectivity

The Wi-Fi performance is mediocre at best. The built-in Intel wireless module (Wi-Fi 6 AX203) doesn’t deliver top-notch performance when sending and receiving data, but the speeds we obtained are fairly stable.

Webcam

Similarly, you will only get an unremarkable, standard webcam with the laptop. As is so often the case with laptop webcams, the images lack sharpness and colour accuracy.

Accessories

Besides a bunch of documents, you'll also find a pleasantly compact and light 135-watt AC adapter in the box.

Maintenance

One advantage of the Nitro is its serviceability. Despite the fact that the bottom cover is held on quite firmly even after the eleven case screws have been removed, once you get inside the 15-inch laptop, you’ll have access to a free M.2 slot and an empty RAM slot (see photos). Though the single-RAM configuration in our review unit can negatively impact performance in some situations. One thing to take note: the battery isn’t screwed down and can theoretically fall out of the chassis when you’re opening up the laptop.

Warranty

Acer provides a two-year warranty on the Nitro V 15 in Germany. However, warranty period may vary depending on region.

Input devices

Keyboard

The input devices are neither awful nor superb. Similar to most laptops with conventional keyboards, typing on the Nitro feels a bit mushy due to a lack of tactile feedback. Acer could also have done better with the layout. For instance, there is enough space for a standard four-column numpad rather than a three-column one. It's likewise a shame that the arrow keys are not great and barely suitable for gaming and that the power button isn’t located separately. The function keys being almost puny doesn't help either. Positive aspects worth mentioning include the white backlight with adjustable brightness and the dedicated button to open the tuning software (NitroSense).

Touchpad

The touchpad mostly stands out with the built-in fingerprint scanner at its top left corner. The mouse replacement is other rather average in terms of quality. The level of precision and smoothness is reasonable without being mind-blowing. The situation is similar with the multi-touch support and feel of the click surfaces. Depending on how hard you press the touchpad, it unfortunately has a tendency to rattle.

Display

The Nitro V 15’s low-quality display is one of its biggest weaknesses. At first glance, the results obtained don’t seem all too disappointing: the black level of 0.25 cd/m² and contrast ratio of 1168:1 are similar to what can you get from the competitors or a typical IPS panel. This also applies to the viewing angle.

* ... smaller is better

But you'll start noticing a few shortcomings upon a closer look. First off, the average peak brightness of 263 cd/m² is only adequate for indoor use; the 15-inch laptop doesn’t cut a good figure at all in an outdoor setting.

The Nitro V 15 also offers very limited colour coverage: having 60% sRGB and roughly 40% AdobeRGB and DCI-P3 coverage just isn’t going to cut it in 2024 even for a budget gaming notebook.

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
25.8 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 13.8 ms rise
↘ 12 ms fall
The screen shows relatively slow response rates in our tests and may be too slow for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.1 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 57 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (21.5 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
34.2 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 15.8 ms rise
↘ 18.4 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.2 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 42 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is similar to the average of all tested devices (33.7 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 17900 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

Performance

The Nitro V 15 is a mid-range device in terms of both its CPU and GPU performance. The 16 GB of RAM is quite reasonable considering the laptop’s price, but the SSD falls a bit short with its capacity of just 512 GB.

Test conditions

The preinstalled NitroSense app lets users adjust various system settings. The “Scenario” tab is particularly interesting for real-life use. It allows you to tinker with the power plan (“Mode” menu) and fan behaviour (“Fan Control” menu). Our measurements were performed in Balanced mode and with auto fan control, since the laptop runs considerably louder but not much faster in Performance mode.

Processor

The Core i5-13420H is a processor from Intel’s Raptor Lake lineup (10 nm) that sports four performance cores (with Hyper-Threading) and four efficiency cores (without HT). In our gauntlet of benchmarks, the CPU wasn't just outperformed by its more expensive siblings Core i5-13500H and Core i7-13620H as expected, but also beaten by its AMD competitors Ryzen 7 7735HS and Ryzen 7 7840HS. That said, the CPU’s performance is more than enough for gaming because most games are, as we know, GPU-bound.
