Unlike some vendors who opt to pair Nvidia’s hot GeForce RTX 30-series laptop GPUs with either AMD’s new Ryzen 5000 or Intel’s Tiger Lake H35 chips, Acer has decided to offer them all and let buyers sort it out.
The AMD goodness kicks off with Acer’s Nitro 5 series. The Nitro 5 will come with 15.6-inch or 17.3-inch display options, offering 2560×1440 resolution with 165Hz refresh rates for those want more pixels and a fast refresh rate—or 1080p screens with a blistering 360Hz refresh rate for competitive gamers.
Both laptop sizes will offer two M.2 PCIe slots as well as a 2.5-inch drive bay. RAM options go up to 32GB of DDR4/3200, while networking includes Killer E2600 ethernet and WiFi 6.
