Acer announces AMD Ryzen-powered Nitro 5 gaming laptop

2018 Acer Swift 7

Acer used its pre-CES 2018 event to reveal its latest PCs and related hardware.

With many major manufacturers refreshing their popular laptops with Intel's more powerful 8th Generation processors, Acer's decision is a little disappointing but I guess that's the price you have to pay for ultimate thinness.

Unlike the Swift 7 range, the Acer Spin 3 debuts as an all-day productivity and entertainment notebook - offering a laptop, tablet, display, and a space-saving tent mode through its 360-degree dual-torque hinge design.

The new Swift 7 has a 14in Full HD touchscreen IPS display, topped with Corning Gorilla Glass and, as with previous Swift laptops, it can be tilted back to a rather extreme angle. Acer Swift 7 is powered by an Intel 7th Gen Core i7 processor. The optimised chipset offers up to 10 hours of battery. Other contributors to portability have been addressed; there is built-in Intel XMM 4G LTE connectivity with nano SIM slot, and up to 10 hours of battery life is useful when you are on the road. It provides a reliable wireless connection with 802.11ac (4) WiFi featuring 2×2 MIMO technology as well as Bluetooth 4.0. The company is also packing in 8GB RAM and a 256GB SSD. The Swift 7 flaunts a stylish unibody aluminum chassis. Acer hasn't released the full specs yet, but we do know the Spin 3 arrives in February and will start at $599.

The Acer Swift 7 Ultrabook launches in March.

2018 Acer Swift 7

Acer's Nitro 5 will have prices starting from USD799 (around RM3,187).

Finally, Acer updated their affordable Nitro 5 gaming laptop to feature AMD Radeon's RX560 graphics card and a host of new AMD Ryzen mobile processors. The gaming laptop, Acer Nitro 5 will hit North America in April with a base price of $799 and EMEA in April this year. At just 8.98 mm thin, the new Swift 7 regains the title of the world's thinnest, now the only question is, for how long. Thanks to the powerful 8th Generation Intel Core processor and NVIDIA® GeForce® MX150 graphics, it has the processing and graphics power to handle intensive tasks, content creation, and video streaming.

Acer's newest gaming desktops are cool inside and out, designed with commanding aesthetics and advanced thermals.

The Chromebook 11 will be available from £259 and will come to the United Kingdom in March 2018. The lightning-fast speeds of DDR4 RAM of up to 32 GB combined with the SSD means fast booting, loading and restarting in mere seconds so players can get to the action immediately.
