Although we reviewed the Acer Nitro 5, we didn't get to experiment with this exact configuration. This Nitro 5 variant comes with an Intel Core i5-10300H CPU, 8GB of RAM, a 256GB NVMe SSD, and a 15.6-inch, 1920 x 1080-pixel display with a 144Hz refresh rate.

If you're worried about heating, don't worry. According to Acer, the Nitro 5 stays cool under pressure. During those graphics-intensive moments when your internals are getting pushed to their limits, Acer CoolBoost technology increases fan speed by 10% and CPU. We can confirm that the Acer CoolBoost technology is pretty good. We even suggested the Nitro 5 for crypto mining (with some important caveats) because of its ability to remain cool under pressure.

Of course, we can't forget to mention the Nitro 5's best selling point: its RTX 3050 GPU, which supports second-generation ray-tracing cores, third-generation tensor cores, DLSS, Microsoft DirectX 12 Ultimate, Resizable BAR and more.

The ports are more than enough for your productivity and gamng needs with USB Type-A and USB Type-C ports for data transfers.
