Three Nitro 5 Intel Optane-powered models – the latest addition to the Nitro gaming series — were launched by Acer and Intel executives at Bonifacio Global City in Taguig City.

In her speech, Acer Philippines sales and marketing director Sue Ong-Lim said the company is now the fastest rising brand in the industry as it posted an impressive growth rate of 400 percent year-on-year.

“Expect more from us in the coming days,” said Ong-Lim, as she led the unveiling of Acer’s gaming “playground” at the I Darts Dash in BGC.

The Nitro 5 gaming monster offers crushing audio, thanks to the marriage of Acer’s TrueHarmony and Dolby Audio Premium, an intense high definition IPS display, a strategically placed 802.11 ac wireless antenna and 2×2 MIMO, and a plethora of ports to connect to almost any secondary device.

“Nitro 5 is all about providing a high quality gaming experience for the casual gamer, but casual gaming doesn’t mean inferior features,” said Ong-Lim. “In fact, with Intel Optane tecnhnology, the Nitro 5 is sure to immerse its user into an intensely satisfying gaming experience.”

The Acer Intel Optane-powered Nitro 5 offers an improved six-core design, and Intel Optane memory that increase responsiveness and load times.

The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti graphics allow for an immersive graphic experience with faster rendering, finer textures, and dynamic lighting to snipe enemies hiding in even the darkest shadows.

Up to 512 GB of NVMe PCIe solid-state storage is available on the Nitro 5, providing plenty of space for apps and games while enabling ultra-fast booth up times.

The Nitro 5 features up to 32GB of DDR4 memory, which draws 20% less power than DDR3 memory for more efficient gaming sessions.

Once on the battlefield, Acer’s NitroSense utility monitors the status of the CPU/GPU, while CoolBoost Technology adjusts the fans for optimal performance.

The Nitro 5 offers bold refinement not commonly seen in a gaming laptop, thanks to its elegant laser texturing and understated matte hinge.

The crimson red hinge beautifully matches the futuristic design of the backlit keyboard, while the 15.6-inch Full HD IPS display produces imagery with crisp details.

A front-facing HD Web camera lets users strategize with the squad as they prepare to unleash terror on the competition, and celebrate together after victory is secured.

Users can also easily broadcast games live with Mixer, directly from the Game bar on Windows 10 simply by pressing the Windows key plus G.

With high-quality audio as an essential component for gaming, Dolby Audio Premium and Acer TrueHarmony technology ensure the finely-tuned speakers pick up on any would-be attackers entering the scene.

The Nitro 5 features Intel Wireless-AC 9560 2×2 802.11ac wireless which offers Gigabit performance that enhances gaming, streaming, and conferencing experiences.

A plethora of ports including hyper-fast USB Type-C, HDMI 2.0, and Gigabit Ethernet are included so users are prepared for every mission whether at home or on the go.
