The Acer Nitro 5 will be soon available with an AMD Ryzen 7 5800H, a 144 Hz display and an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 packing 8 GB of VRAM
Another Cezanne and Ampere-based gaming laptop has leaked, following the publication of a new Gigabyte A7 earlier this week. This time it is a new Acer Nitro 5, which was briefly listed by German retailer ElectronicPartner. Laptop manufacturers like Acer and Gigabyte are expected to announce their next-generation gaming laptops at CES 2021. The annual event will run between January 11 and 14, although it will be a digital-only one this year.
According to the EP listing, Acer will sell next year's Nitro 5 with up to an AMD Ryzen 7 5800H APU and an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 GPU. The latter will have 8 GB of VRAM and is expected to feature upwards of 6,144 CUDA cores. The EP listing did not offer any other specifications of the GeForce RTX 3080 beyond its VRAM capacity, though.
A 144 Hz display will also be in attendance with a matte finish and a diagonal size of 17.3-inches. The IPS panel will have a 16:9 aspect ratio, too. Additionally, a 180 W power supply will underpin the upcoming Nitro 5, which will weigh 2.7 kg itself.
The GeForce RTX 3080 will be NVIDIA's premier laptop chip for 2021, but the Ryzen 7 5800H will not be for AMD. On the contrary, AMD is expected to announce the Ryzen 9 5900HX too, which appears to have higher clock speeds than the Ryzen 7 5800H.
