Acer has introduced a new version of Swift 3 and Nitro 5 gaming laptops featuring AMD processors and graphics muscles. The enhanced Acer Nitro 5 and Swift 3 laptops are powered by the Ryzens second generation AMD processor. In addition to AMD processors, the 5 Nitro gets its gaming anchor from the RX Radeon 560X graphics card, while the 3 Swift with Radeon Vega graphics cards that are less focused on productivity and daily games will be equipped.
The AMD Nitro 5 gaming laptop version is identical to version one, in terms of design, port selection and some internal hardware from Intel, powered, except for processors and graphics. Acer announced that the new Nitro 5 model with the AMD Ryzen 7 3750H RX CPU and Radeon 560X graphics will be configured to the second generation. Other specifications on the Acer Nitro 5 with AMD include a 15.5-inch Full HD IPS screen (1920 x 1080 pixels) with an aspect ratio of 19: 9 and an 80% ratio between the screen and body. Nitro 5 with an Intel processor with six cores was launched in April last year.
There is no information about RAM and storage capacity, but if the Intel variant is something that can be done, the AMD Nitro 5 model can provide up to 16GB RAM and 1TB HDD, optional with SSD and Intel Optane Save. There is support for Gigabit Wi-Fi 5 with 2×2 MU-MIMO and Acer Network Optimizer for better online games. Nitro 5 is also available with Acer CoolBoost technology to increase fan speed and dual heat exhaust ventilation.
The updated Acer Swift 3, the Intel version released last October, can be configured with the second generation AMD Ryzen 7 3700 mobile processor with Radeon Vega graphics. Buyers also have the option to get more images with the Radeon 540X. Acer Swift 3 has a 14-inch IPS screen with full HD (1920×1080 pixels) and a lightweight chassis rotates 180 degrees.
Acer hasn’t announced details about the price or market availability of the updated Nitro 5 and Swift 3 laptops. AMD’s AMD Nitro 5 and Swift 3 models will be launched at the Acer Exposition from May 28 to June 2 at Computex 2019 in Taiwan.
