Acer announced its new Acer Nitro 5 gaming laptop, designed for casual gamers seeking great performance in an attractive laser-textured design.

The new 15-inch laptop is targeted towards mainstream users who enjoy the thrill of gaming with friends, and building their own network of like-minded players.

The Acer Nitro 5 packs in the latest-generation AMD Radeon RX560 graphics for faster rendering, improved lighting and texture details so users can immerse themselves in on-screen excitement. Gamers will also benefit from the latest AMD Ryzen mobile processors for amazing performance, whether it be for gaming, content creation or multi-tasking applications.

The Nitro 5’s internal solid-state drive is available up to 512 GB, plenty of storage for the latest gaming titles, music and movies. The lightning-fast speeds of DDR4 RAM of up to 32 GB combined with the SSD means fast booting, loading and restarting in mere seconds so players can get to the action immediately. Once in the throes of battle, Acer’s NitroSense utility allows the monitoring of theCPU/GPU, and adjustment of cooling fan speeds via Acer CoolBoost to keep them in optimal operation.

To round out the gaming experience, Acer’s Nitro 5 features finely-tuned, high-quality speakers with Dolby Audio Premium and Acer TrueHarmony technology. This equips gamers with the necessary gear to hone in on the faintest sound of tip-toeing attackers, and then relish in the reverberating boom of a carefully-placed landmine. The Nitro 5 features all of the supporting technologies and connections the casual gamer needs: fast and reliable dual-stream 802.11ac wireless technology, a plethora of ports, including hyper-fast USB Type-C, HDMI 2.0, and Gigabit Ethernet.

The Acer Nitro5 willbe available in North America in April with prices starting at US$799; and in EMEA in April with prices starting at €1,099.
