Acer just announced a new gaming laptop featuring the latest internals from Intel and NVIDIA. The Acer Nitro V 15 pairs up to a 13th Gen Intel Core i7 CPU with up to NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4050 graphics. Those processors, along with up to 32GB of DDR5 RAM and a 2TB PCIe SSD, should be able to handle many of the best PC games, though you'll have to lower your settings on certain titles.
CPU: From Intel Core i5-13420H
GPU: From NVIDIA RTX 2050
RAM: From 8GB
Storage: From 512GB
Display: 15.6-inch (1920 x 1080)
Price: From $699.99
Acer's Nitro V 15 features a FHD display with a refresh rate of up to 165Hz, though gamers in the United States will be capped at purchasing a version with a 144Hz screen. The gaming PC's screen has a 3ms overdrive response time and an 82% screen-to-body ratio. Acer's press materials appeared to have a mistake that states the Nitro V 15 has a 1020 x 1080 display. It's much more likely the gaming laptop features a 1920 x 1080 screen.
The Nitro V 15 has DTS: X Ultra audio technology. It also supports Acer Purified View and Acer Purified Voice for optimized video calls.
A variety of configurations will be available at several retailers. The Acer Nitro V 15 starts at $699.99 for the model with an Intel Core i5, an NVIDIA RTX 2050, 8GB of RAM, and 512GB of memory. Things scale up progressively until you reach the maxed-out version with an Intel Core i7, an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4050, 16GB of RAM, and 1TB of storage ($999.99).
