It's time for the annual Acer Nitro 50 gaming desktop refresh. Unlike last year, Acer now lets users pick between AMD Ryzen 5000 and 11th-generation Intel Rocket Lake processors. It is a scaled-down version of the Acer Predator Orion 3000, which also got a refresh. Compared to last year's mode, the Acer Nitro 50 is a tad more expensive at EUR 999 (US$1,2216). It will hit shelves in Europe starting July 2021. North America will have to wait until September, unfortunately.

As mentioned earlier, the Acer Nitro 50 is now configurable with the newest Intel Rocket Lake and AMD Ryzen 5000 processors. On the Intel side of the aisle, one can pick up to an Intel Core i7-11700. Acer hasn't mentioned any AMD SKU, but we'll probably see the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X on the maxed-out SKU. Either processor can be paired with an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 Ti graphics card. An RTX 3070 would have been ideal, but that seems to be reserved for the higher-end Orion 3000.

The Acer Nitro 50 supports up to 64GB of DDR4 RAM (frequency not mentioned). There are slots for two M.2 SSDs and 3.5mm SATA drives. Its case is relatively low-profile and bereft of bells and whistles, such as a tempered glass side panel and RGB fans. Like last year's model, the top of the case also doubles up as a wireless charging pad for your peripherals. Wi-Fi 6 is supported, too.
