TAIPEI, Taiwan, May 25, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Acer today announced its new Nitro notebook line for casual gamers. First from the new Acer Nitro family, the Nitro 5 series provides a good balance of powerful features with a sharp and stylish design. Acer is offering a variety of configurations that feature popular graphics and processors, providing consumers with a wide selection to meet different budgets and needs.
Gamers can choose from configurations featuring up to NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1050 Ti graphics paired with 7th Generation Intel® Core™ i7 or i5 processors, or models with AMD Radeon™ RX550 graphics with 7th Generation AMD A-Series FX, A12 or A10 APUs. These models all feature Windows 10, and support up to 32GB of DDR4 2400 MHz memory.
Ideal for accelerating boot-up time and shortening in-game loading times, select models come equipped with super-fast PCIe SSDs (up to 512GB) paired with an optional HDD for storage (up to 2TB). A Gigabit Ethernet port delivers fast and reliable wired connections, while the 802.11ac 2x2 MIMO wireless technology provides blazing-fast wireless connectivity. A comprehensive selection of ports includes one USB 3.1 Type-C (Gen 1) port, one USB 3.0 port with power-off charging, two USB 2.0 ports, and an HDMI 2.0 port, which can support up to 90 Hz refresh rates.
Of course, no gaming system is complete without a thermal solution to manage heat and keep the system running optimally. The Nitro 5 features dual fans with Acer Coolboost™ technology, which delivers heightened fan speeds and cooling ability, and allows users to manually control the cooling process when heavy use requires an added boost.
All models offer a vibrant 15.6-inch FHD (1920 x 1080) IPS display, while Dolby Audio™ Premium and Acer TrueHarmony™ technology provides incredible sound depth. These work in tandem to provide immersive experiences for gaming or watching movies.
The Nitro 5's sophisticated design includes a matte black chassis with a hairline finish. A smooth sleek red hinge runs along the back of the notebook, above a bold black grill vent. The keyboard features red backlighting, and the WASD keys and touchpad are also outlined in red for ease-of-use.
