Acer Nitro 5 Gaming laptop with Ryzen 5000, launched by a German retailer

Computer maker Acer is advancing in the design and production of a gaming laptop that combines AMD’s upcoming Ryzen 7 5800H processor with Nvidia RTX 3080 GPU. This information was provided by German retailer ElectronicPartner as they listed the company’s new generation Nitro 5 ahead of its potential release at CES 2021. The list was, however, removed from the retailer’s website.Acer Nitro 5

The gaming laptop is among the first devices to pair AMD’s Zen 3 and Nvidia’s Ampera architectures. It is said to have an octa-core Ryzen 7 5800H processor, capable of improving the base and boosting clocks to 3.2 GHz and 4.4 GHz, along with an Nvidia RTX 3080 graphics card with 8 GB of memory and probably GDDR6.

There’s a good chance this could be a mobile version of the Ampera GPU, which is likely to have reduced specs. The Acer Nitro 5 gaming laptop has a 17.3-inch FHD screen, a refresh rate of 144 Hz, 32 GB of DDR4 memory and a massive 1 TB SSD.

The gaming laptop has a full-size keyboard equipped with backlight, a battery capable of working for up to eight hours, along with Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.0 capabilities. The laptop also has one HDMI port, three USB 3.0 ports, one USB 3.1 port and a 3.5mm audio port.

The ElectronicPartner list reinforces the view that Acer may also release an abbreviated version of the Nitro 5 that could have an Nvidia GTX 1650 with 4GB of GDDR6 memory or an AMD Radeon GPU.

According to the German retailer, the Acer Nitro 5 will have a hefty retail price of 1,948.61 euros (about $ 2,372). The laptop is also expected to accept a lower price when it is announced for the US market.
