Acer Malaysia has revealed the 2021 edition of the popular Nitro 5 gaming laptops during its ‘Zero To Nitro’ online virtual event.

Acer Nitro 5 2021 1

The most notable thing about the 2021 models of the Nitro 5 is the AMD Ryzen 5000 series CPU that has already been known to be a beast in multi-threaded workloads, especially in the mobile sector. Coupled with newly released RTX 30 series GPUs a couple of months ago, what you have here is the superior cost-to-performance machine with very little budget spent on the “gamer” side of things. Cheap options are available as well, replacing the RTX 30s with the GTX 1650 that satisfies most triple-A titles on medium settings.

Coming in 6 types of variants, Acer Malaysia is opening up 3 phases of preorder periods that allow fellow gamers to place their preorders according to the set dates. We’ve placed them in categories of periods to clearly list out what you are getting within that phase alongside their price tags. Successfully placing your order will net you an RM100 instant rebate alongside some free merchandise as well.
