Built for Performance and Control
The Acer Nitro 5 ships with up to the latest 8th Generation Intel Core i7 and Intel Core i7+ processors offering an improved six-core design, an emphasis on premium performance so users never drop a frame or miss a beat while the action unfolds, and Intel® Optane™ memory that increases responsiveness and load times. NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1050 Ti graphics allow for a truly immersive graphic experience with faster rendering, finer textures, and dynamic lighting to snipe enemies hiding in even the darkest shadows. Up to 512 GB of NVMe PCIe solid-state storage is available on the Nitro 5, providing plenty of space for apps and games while enabling ultra-fast boot up times. The Nitro 5 features up to 32GB of DDR4 memory, which draws 20% less power than DDR3 memory for more efficient gaming sessions. Once on the battlefield, Acer’s NitroSense utility monitors the status of the CPU/GPU, while CoolBoost technology adjusts the fans for optimal performance.
Styled for Domination
The Nitro 5 offers bold refinement not commonly seen in a gaming laptop, thanks to its elegant laser texturing and understated matte hinge. The crimson red hinge beautifully matches the futuristic design of the backlit keyboard, while the 15.6-inch Full HD IPS display produces brilliant imagery with crisp details. A front-facing HD web camera lets users strategize with the squad as they prepare to unleash terror on the competition, and celebrate together after victory is secured. Users can also easily broadcast games live with Mixer, directly from the Game bar on Windows 10 simply by pressing the Windows key plus G.
Audio Excitement and Gigabit Wireless
With high-quality audio as an essential component for gaming, Dolby Audio™ Premium and Acer TrueHarmony™ technology ensure the finely-tuned speakers pick up on any would-be attackers entering the scene. The Nitro 5 features Intel® Wireless-AC 9560 2×2 802.11ac wireless which offers Gigabit performance that enhances gaming, streaming, and conferencing experiences.
