Acer announced the  latest addition to its Nitro 5 gaming series, which was made to satisfy the casual PC gamers.

The Acer Nitro 5 ships with up to the latest 8th Generation Intel Core i7 and Intel Core i7+ processors offering an improved six-core design, said Acer in a press release.

The new laptops are equipped with NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti graphics, up to 512 GB of NVMe PCIe SSDs and up to 32GB of DDR4 memory.

Once on the battlefield, Acer’s NitroSense utility monitors the status of the CPU/GPU, while CoolBoost technology adjusts the fans for optimal performance.

The Nitro 5 offers bold refinement not commonly seen in a gaming laptop, thanks to its elegant laser texturing and understated matte hinge. The crimson red hinge beautifully matches the futuristic design of the backlit keyboard, while the 15.6-inch Full HD IPS display produces brilliant imagery with crisp details.

A front-facing HD web camera lets users strategize with the squad as they prepare to unleash terror on the competition, and celebrate together after victory is secured. Users can also easily broadcast games live with Mixer, directly from the Game bar on Windows 10 simply by pressing the Windows key plus G.

The Nitro 5 features Intel Wireless-AC 9560 2×2 802.11ac wireless which offers Gigabit performance that enhances gaming, streaming, and conferencing experiences.

The Acer Nitro 5 will be available in North America in May with prices starting at US$749; and in EMEA in May with prices starting at €799.
