Acer 2023 Overview

By B&H Photo's

Jump into your favorite games with the robust functionality and gaming-focused design of the Acer 15.6" Nitro 5 Gaming Laptop. Whether you are playing casually or looking to dive deep into some of your favorites, the Nitro 5 can deliver performance suitable for gaming enthusiasts on the go.

At the heart of the Nitro 5 is a 12th Gen Intel Core i5 processor, boasting four Performance and eight Efficiency cores with operational frequencies up to 4.5 and 3.3 GHz, respectively. With 16GB of DDR5 RAM and a 512GB M.2 NVMe SSD, you can experience snappy multitasking capabilities and load times across the board, getting you into your games quicker. The dedicated NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4050 graphics card provides you with a smooth and clear picture on the 15.6" display sporting a resolution of 1920 x 1080 and a refresh rate up to 144 Hz. USB 3.2 Gen 1 and USB 3.2 Gen 2 ports allow you to connect a variety of peripherals, or you could use integrated Bluetooth 5.1 technology for wireless devices. Connect to your network wirelessly with Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) networking or, if you prefer a wired connection, you can use the integrated Gigabit Ethernet port.

Powered by NVIDIA
The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4050 graphics card delivers enhanced visuals suitable for a wide range of modern games. Backed by 6GB of dedicated video memory, you can experience vast landscapes and in-depth details, while also leveraging a suite of NVIDIA technologies such as ray tracing, DLSS, Artificial Intelligence voice and video, and more.
Enhanced Display
Keep your momentum going with the display's 144 Hz refresh rate, providing you with lightning fast and fluid performance suitable for competitive online titles.
Connectivity
The Nitro 5 includes a suite of ports allowing you to connect your gaming-focused peripherals. One USB 3.2 Gen 1 and two USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-A ports boast data transfer speeds up to 5 and 10 Gb/s, respectively, while also supporting devices like mice, headsets, storage drives, and more. A single USB-C 3.2 Gen 2 port gives you massive connectivity with a wide range of resource-demanding devices such as displays and storage arrays while offering limited compatibility with Thunderbolt 4 devices. You also get an HDMI port so you can connect a secondary display for greater screen real estate.
4-Zone RGB Keyboard
Spice things up with the 4-zone RGB keyboard and take command of the inner workings of the laptop via the dedicated NitroSense Key. The WASD and arrow keys are also highlighted for easy visibility for those clutch moments.
Windows 11 Home
A New Start Position
Windows 11 has been completely redesigned from its predecessor to emphasize productivity, creativity, and ease of use. The customizable Start Menu is now at the center of the taskbar and utilizes the cloud, allowing you to quickly find and access recent files, regardless of what platform or device was previously used to view them. The streamlined Start Menu design also lets you pin apps and recent files in addition to powering down the system.
Making Productivity a Snap
Multitask with speed and efficiency with the ability to snap apps side by side. Snap Layouts and Snap Groups help to keep your windows organized using different layouts that are designed to fully optimize your screen space, no matter its size and resolution. Windows 11 also remembers their positions, so you can resume from where you left off when selecting Snap Groups from the task bar, allowing you to switch between both individual applications and entire projects. Snap Layouts are also automatically restored when docking laptops with external monitors.
Microsoft Teams Integration
Stay connected with friends, family, coworkers, and clients with Microsoft Teams Chat integrated onto the Windows 11 taskbar. With a touch, you can connect to your contacts via text, voice, and video, regardless of whether they're using Windows, Android, or iOS devices. You can also communicate with those who don't have the Teams app installed using two-way SMS messaging.
Adapting to You
The Adaptive Input feature automatically optimizes the Windows 11 interface to however you prefer to interact with your device, whether it's using a mouse, keyboard, touch, voice, or handwriting.
Next Level Gaming
Windows 11 is designed to deliver smooth, immersive gaming experiences with DirectX 12 Ultimate providing realistic graphics at high frame rates while Auto HDR automatically adjusts your game's lighting and contrast for high dynamic range. DirectStorage technology streamlines data access to better take advantage of high-speed devices such as NVMe solid-state drives and directly from graphics cards without dragging down the CPU, which minimizes load times while helping to reduce artifacts such as texture popping. Topping it all off is Xbox Game Pass integration, which provides you with access to a massive library of games with a membership subscription.
Redesigned Microsoft Store
The Microsoft Store is rebuilt from the ground up for a streamlined experience when looking for content such as apps, games, movies, and shows. Apps downloaded from the Store have been tested for security and family safety. Android apps will also be available on the Microsoft Store through the Amazon Appstore and can be used directly on your PC from the taskbar or Start Menu.
