Acer announces new AMD Ryzen powered Nitro 5 and Swift 3 Notebooks

Acer has announced support for the 2nd Gen AMD Ryzen Mobile Processors with Radeon Vega Graphics for its Nitro 5 gaming notebook and the Swift 3 thin-and-light notebook.

The AMD Ryzen Mobile Processors deliver power and efficiency; capable of handling visuals for streaming and gaming; and responsive processing power.

Nitro 5 with Ryzen

The Nitro 5 powered by up to 2nd Gen AMD Ryzen 7 3750H processor with Radeon RX 560X Graphics provides responsive performance from the new AMD technology.

It allows users to enjoy their games in detail with a choice of 15.6-inch Full HD IPS or 15.6" FHD IPS 144hz panel with an impressive 80 percent screen-to-body ratio. The Nitro 5 can stream gameplay with Gigabit Wi-Fi 5 with 2x2 MU-MIMO technology. Users can also connect supporting gadgets with an array of ports such as HDMI 2.0, USB Type-C 3.1 Gen 1 (up to 5 Gbps), and more.

The Nitro 5 features dual fans, plus Acer CoolBoost technology and a dual exhaust port designed to keep it cool during extended gaming sessions. CoolBoost increases fan speed by 10 percent and CPU and GPU cooling by 9 percent compared to auto mode.

It features Acer's Network Optimizer to optimize online gaming and keep the data flow.

A specially configured easy-to-use GUI (graphical user interface) helps users manage their bandwidth in both Auto Mode - categorizing and prioritizing programs to eliminate network issues - or manually by letting users adjust the priorities, change the bandwidth for each application, or even block specific applications to get the best network experience.

Swift 3 with Ryzen

Up to 2nd Gen AMD Ryzen 7 3700U processors with Radeon Vega Graphics on the Swift 3 notebook delivers power and efficiency for getting work done with effortless speed. With optional discrete Radeon 540X graphics, customers have the performance they need for more computing-intensive tasks such as video editing and casual gaming.

The Swift 3 comes with a 14" FHD IPS narrow bezel display, a sleek aluminum design that opens 180-degrees to lay-flat, and the latest technologies for performance and connectivity, packed into a super-light 1.45 kg (3.2 pounds) design that is only 17.95 mm thin (0.71 inches).
