Like other companies, Acer isn’t waiting for Computex 2019 to make some announcements. The company just announced the new Nitro 5 and Swift 3 notebooks with AMD Ryzen mobile processors and Radeon Vega graphics.
As with other announcements for Computex 2019, this is a soft announcement with full details coming at the show. For now, here’s what we got on the new Nitro 5 and Swift 3 notebooks:
Nitro 5 with Ryzen best for gaming
The Nitro 5 powered by up to 2nd Gen AMD Ryzen 7 3750H processor with Radeon RX 560X Graphics provides exceptional performance. Users can expect stunning visuals and responsive performance from the new AMD technology. It allows users to enjoy their favorite games in exceptional detail with a 15.6-inch Full HD IPS display with an impressive 80 percent screen-to-body ratio. The Nitro 5 effortlessly streams gameplay with Gigabit Wi-Fi 5 with 2×2 MU-MIMO technology. Users can also connect supporting gadgets with an array of ports such as HDMI 2.0, USB Type-C 3.1 Gen 1 (up to 5 Gbps), and more.
The Nitro 5 features dual fans, plus Acer CoolBoost™ technology and a dual exhaust port designed to keep it chilled out during extended gaming sessions. CoolBoost increases fan speed by 10 percent and CPU and GPU cooling by 9 percent compared to auto mode.
It features Acer’s Network Optimizer to optimize online gaming and keep the data flowing fast and strong. A specially configured easy-to-use GUI (graphical user interface) helps users manage their bandwidth in both Auto Mode — categorizing and prioritizing programs to eliminate network issues — or manually by letting users adjust the priorities, change the bandwidth for each application, or even block specific applications to get the best network experience.Acer Press Release
