Acer has unveiled the new Nitro 17 gaming laptop, which comes with improved performance and enhanced features. It is powered by the latest Intel Core 14 Gen processors featuring Intel's Performance Hybrid Architecture. It is also equipped with NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 40 series GPUs with DLSS 3.5 technology.
Microsoft CoPilot is also built in, with access given via a dedicated key. It is further supported by an advanced cooling system, AI-assisted communication features and NitroSense software. Using a thermal design with integrated dual fans with four intake and four exhaust systems and liquid Liquid Metal cooling on the CPU, the risk of thermal throttle is minimized and helps the components to operate at full capacity for longer. This Windows 11 gaming laptop also comes with one month of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, with access to a library of hundreds of games.
There has been a significant upgrade that adds up to an Intel Core i7 processor 14700HX and up to an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4060 graphics card. The Nitro 17 also supports up to 32GB of DDR5 5600 MHz memory and up to 2TB of PCIe NVMe SSD storage. The QHD display has a 16:9 aspect ratio, 165 Hz refresh rate, 3 ms overdrive response time, a DCI-P3 100% color gamut.
Acer PurifiedVoice 2.0 with a three-microphone setup uses AI to filter unwanted background noise and allows users' voice to stand out through speakers with DTS:X Ultra. The HD webcam uses Acer PurifiedView's AI-powered solutions for enhanced experiences with automatic framing, eye contact and background blur.
For high-quality connectivity, the laptop also provides a range of ports, including two USB-C with Thunderbolt 4, HDMI 2.1 and a Micro SD card reader. Furthermore, it comes with Killer DoubleShot Pro Ethernet E3100G and Wi-Fi 6E compatibility.
Price-wise, the new Nitro ends up on the more budget-friendly end compared to some of the other new Laptops we've seen launched at CES.
