Acer Nitro 7
The latest Nitro 7 is designed for casual gamers who want the best design and performance. This device offers a new slim metal chassis with a thickness of only 19.9mm.
The 15.6-inch high-resolution display produces colour as seen in the real world, with a 144Hz refresh rate and 3ms response time to provide a broken-free gaming experience – crucial when in the middle of a battle.
The 9th Generation Intel Core processor and the latest NVIDIA GPU enable Nitro 7 to guarantee a smooth gaming experience.
Nitro 7 also offers adequate storage options, including two slots for PCIe M.2 Gen 3×4 SSDs using NVMe technology in RAID 01, and configuration of up to 32GB of DDR4 RAM and up to 2TB of HDD storage space.
Acer Nitro 5
The updated Nitro 5 is claimed to enable users to enjoy a variety of their favourite games with a special look through the IPS Full HD screen in either a thin bezel size of 17.3 inches or 15.6 inches with an extraordinary screen-to-edge ratio of 80 percent.
This gaming laptop combines the 9th Generation Intel Core processor, the latest NVIDIA GPU, two PCIe M.2 Gen 3×4 SSDs that use NVMe technology in RAID 01, and options for up to 32GB DDR4 RAM for superior budget-friendly gaming performance.
Streaming gameplay is made very easy with Gigabit Wi-Fi 5 and 2×2 MU-MIMO technology. Users can also connect their devices using a variety of available port options, such as HDMI 2.0, USB Type-C 3.2 Gen 1 and others.
Both the Nitro 7 and Nitro 5 feature two fans, as well as Acer CoolBoost technology and two exhaust ports designed to keep the temperature of the Nitro 7 in order to stay cool during extended gameplay sessions. CoolBoost increases fan speed by 10 percent and cooling CPU and GPU up to 9 percent better than automatic mode.
Users can monitor and manage Nitro 7 and Nitro 5 with NitroSense, applications that can be accessed via a touch of the NitroSense hotkey. When activated, users can immediately see the state of component temperature, loading performance, power usage, and other elements.
There is also monitoring and regulation of fan speed in real time, so gamers can adjust the speed or maximize the fan when the laptop feels hot.
Users can also create various modes to maximize power usage in many different scenarios, or access six Acer TrueHarmony audio modes, turn on the sticky keys, and enable LCD Overdrive mode to reduce response times up to 3ms.
Nitro 7 and Nitro 5 adopt Killer Ethernet E2500 and Network Optimizer from Acer to prioritize gameplay.
Gamers no longer need to worry about frozen screen problems because latency performance increases overall by 25 percent when running a single application, and more than 10 times increases when using multitasking.
Ethernet control automatically detects games, videos and chat streams to choose bandwidth priority for experience without lag.
When choosing Auto Mode, Acer Network Optimizer is able to distinguish heavy programs so that there are no connectivity issues.
Alternatively, users can set program priorities themselves, change bandwidth allocation for each application, even block certain applications to ensure the best connection.
The new Nitro 7 and the updated Nitro 5 also offer far better audio quality, delivering a multidimensional experience through Waves MaxxAudio’s advanced technology for sound optimization.
MaxxBass is able to intelligently produce low booming sounds, even on small speakers or headsets. MaxxDialog is an intelligent voice mode speaker that is able to distinguish between dialogue in games and music or sound effects.
In addition, MaxxVolume produces maximum volume and clear sound without distortion and clarifies even the vaguest sounds in various games.
