Gamers are an extremely discerning bunch, and they more or less know what kind of hardware that they require in order to maximize their gaming enjoyment. We are extremely fortunate that gaming technology has advanced to such a level where it is possible to enjoy high end gaming with little or no dropped framerates just like a powerful desktop while one is on the move through extremely advanced gaming laptops, and Acer continues to push the envelope with its latest Nitro 5 gaming laptop.
This is definitely not the first gaming laptop that Acer has introduced, but mainstream gamers will definitely be able to appreciate what the Acer Nitro 5 is able to do, courtesy of the AMD Radeon RX560 graphics chipset and the latest AMD Ryzen mobile processors that powers this beast. This hardware tends to get quite hot, so for gaming it’s always a good idea to use a laptop cooling pad.
Equipped with blazing-fast 32GB of DDR4 RAM in order to offer superior performance, the Taiwanese company has also thrown in a solid-state drive (up to 512GB) in order to bolster gameplay for improved reliability. The presence of NitroSense GPU/CPU monitoring will be able to provide real-time metrics, enabling gamers to gain insights and control for maxing out their on-field potential. While the audio quality is decent, it won’t be enough if you really want to gain that edge by hearing the footsteps of your enemies. If that’s what you are after, gaming earbuds are the way to go.
Of course, what is the whole point of having a souped-up piece of hardware if it is not going to be aesthetically pleasing as well? This is where Acer excels as well, with the Nitro 5’s top cover featuring laser texturing that provides boldly refined styling. It will be the best possible model for both casual and serious gamers alike who are on a budget, being powered by Windows 10. This new 15-inch laptop will also target regular office drones who would like to get a spot of gaming in during their rest and relaxation time from work. For the full experience, a keypad can be a good investment, but that really depends on how you use this laptop.
Other hardware specifications include a front-facing HD web camera, finely-tuned, high-quality speakers with Dolby Audio Premium and Acer TrueHarmony technology, fast and reliable dual-stream 802.11ac wireless technology, and a slew of ports. Expect it to be available from April onwards with an asking price of $799 a pop.
