This is the Acer Nitro 5 review . As you may remember, the Nitro series, which Acer targets players with entry and mid-level performance expectations, has been our guest before. Our sharpest criticism about the product, which won our appreciation with its workmanship quality, reasonable price and performance, was that the frame thicknesses pushed the limits.
The thick bezel may reduce the risk of light leakage, but today gamers prefer thinner bezels and more compact designs. The Nitro 5 AN515-43 model stands before us as an example of Acer doing its lesson well.
How is the Acer Nitro 5 Design?
If we start from the design part, two things immediately strike our eyes. The first is that the frame dimensions are very thin, and the other is that the preferred colors are almost the same as the old model. The cut-out design used in the corners gives the laptop a more aggressive appearance, while also showing the case dimensions smaller than they are.

The weight of the product with a 15.6 inch screen is approximately 2.25 kg. The 1080p / 120Hz IPS screen is appreciated in terms of brightness and clarity, and the viewing angles are decent. The keyboard is backlit, but RGB lighting is not preferred, red is dominant. There is no mechanical keyboard, it is very comfortable to use, especially when typing.
What are the features of the Acer Nitro 5?
Acer’s Nitro series consists of many different configurations. The configuration we use has an AMD Ryzen 7 3750H processor (2.3 Ghz, 4Ghz with Boost), AMD Radeon RX 560X (4GB GDDR5) graphics card and 16GB DDR4 RAM .
The Ryzen 7 3750H achieved around 25% weaker values than its rival Intel Core i7-9750H . However, being in the 35W TDP class means less power consumption (45W) compared to its competitor.
Acer Nitro 5 RX 560C comparison
While the RX 560X outperforms the GTX 1050 , it lags behind the GeForce GTX 1050Ti. This means that you will not have any trouble at the lower-intermediate levels when it comes to the most popular games of today.
For high-end gaming performance, it is possible to find very successful configurations in the Acer Predator Helios series. As for the technical specifications , let’s say that 256GB SSD + 1TB HDD is also included in the package on the storage side .
How’s the Acer Nitro 5 Performance?
Through Acer’s Nitro Sense software, it is possible to make highly effective optimizations on the game performance of the device, and the Cool Boost technology has enabled us to achieve very successful cooling values even though it provides an audible experience under load like its competitors.
Thanks to the frugal components of the hardware, the battery life is successful, although Acer talks about up to 6 hours of use, this is a very variable issue as you know. To be honest, it is difficult to reach a third of this time while playing a game that challenges the system.
The sound performance of the Acer Nitro should be divided into two. The product, which does not perform badly in movies or games, will not please you if you are a music listener with a passion for ear pleasure.
All in all, the Acer Nitro 5 AN515-43-R3DS model we reviewed is an extremely enjoyable package for an entry-level gaming PC.
How much does the Acer Nitro 5 cost?
