NEW | Acer Nitro 5 Gaming Laptop


Acer has announced the latest addition to its Nitro 5 gaming series aimed at casual gamers.

Powered by up to the most recent 8th Generation Intel Core i7 and Intel Core i7+ processors, the newest 15-inch Nitro 5 offers improved speed and threading efficiency to thrill users as they battle with friends online.

“Acer is excited to be among the first to offer the new Intel Core i7+ processors with our new Nitro 5 gaming notebook,” said Jerry Hou, General Manager, Consumer Notebooks, IT Products Business, Acer. “The new Nitro 5 provides exceptional performance at an accessible price point which exceeds the needs of most casual gamers, and also professional users that need to power through their tasks on the go.”

“These latest 8th Gen Intel Core mobile products are our highest performing, designed to push the limits of gameplay and content creation. In these new Intel Core i7 and Intel Core i7+ products, we’re bringing together high-end CPU performance capabilities, increased system responsiveness and fast load times with Intel Optane memory, and built-in blazing fast Gigabit WiFi – all in a laptop design,” said Chris Walker, Vice President, Client Computing Group and General Manager, Mobile Client Platforms, Intel.

Built for performance and control

The latest 8th Generation Intel Core i7 and Intel Core i7+ processors offer 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 an immersive graphics experience with faster rendering, finer textures, and dynamic lighting. 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 bootup 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 refinement not commonly seen in a gaming laptop, thanks to its elegant laser texturing and understated matte hinge. The crimson red hinge 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 strategise with the squad as they prepare to unleash terror on the competition and celebrate together after victory is secured. Users can also quickly broadcast games live with Mixer, directly from the Game bar on Windows 10 by merely pressing the Windows key plus G.

Audio excitement and gigabit wireless

With high-quality audio as an essential component of gaming, Dolby Audio Premium and Acer TrueHarmony technology ensure the 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. A plethora of ports including hyper-fast USB Type-C, HDMI 2.0, and Gigabit Ethernet are included, so users are prepared for every mission whether at home or on the go.

The Acer Nitro 5 will be available in South Africa in May with prices starting at R13,999.00
