The Acer Nitro 5 gaming laptop is back with RTX and Core i7 power
The Acer Nitro 5 has long been known as a serious budget contender for those looking to maximize bang-for-buck in the gaming laptop space. In fact, it’s even on our best gaming laptops roundup as the top pick in the value category. Now, the latest refresh is here to try to retain that position.
It comes packed with either a GTX 1650 or RTX 3050 Ti, Core i5 or i7 processor, and 15- or 17-inch 144Hz FHD (full HD) display. The RTX GPU is a big draw of the latest refresh, giving laptop gamers who don’t want to break the bank on a Razer or MSI PC a path of entry into the RTX life.
Naturally, the Nitro 5 won’t be your go-to option if you want the guaranteed ability to max out settings on every game from now until, say, 2025. But for the time being, it’s a Windows 11 PC with the specs to stay relevant for a good while. It releases in mid-October.
