The Acer Nitro 5 AN517-51-79C9 may well represent the range of “base” of the game at Acer, its design has leapt ahead of the previous generation. Yes, it is still entirely made of plastic and, yes, there are still touches of red everywhere, but the size is reduced (403 x 280 x 27 mm) and the quality of overall construction significantly higher. The surfaces are mainly smooth and woken in places by a textured pattern of the most beautiful effect and almost no marks fingerprints.

Note that the frequency of the slab is apparently the basic option (60 Hz), the players seeking a perfect fluidity in the frames will have to prefer the options 120 Hz or 144 Hz.

With 8 GB of RAM behind, you get the fluency of multitasking .
Opposite is a graphic card of last generation Turing GeForce GTX 1650 . If it does not support Ray-Tracing like the last RTX Turing, it obviously gains in performance compared to a GeForce 1050 since its capacities are placed between those of a GTX 1050 Ti and a GeForce 1060. In fact , it can be measured without problem to the intensive players and assures honorable frequencies in Full HD on the totality of the titles of the market provided to avoid the details Ultra on the greediest of them.
