Acer announced ahead of Computex Taipei 2019, support for 2nd Gen AMD Ryzen Mobile Processors with Radeon Vega Graphics on the Nitro 5 gaming notebook and the Swift 3 thin-and-light notebook.
The Nitro 5 is powered by up to 2nd Gen AMD Ryzen 7 3750H processor with Radeon RX 560X Graphics. It comes with a 15.6-inch Full HD IPS display with an 80 percent screen-to-body ratio. The Nitro 5 streams 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 chilled out 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 flowing fast and strong. A 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.
The upgraded Swift 3 notebook comes with up to 2nd Gen AMD Ryzen 7 3700U processors with Radeon Vega Graphics and optional discrete Radeon 540X graphics.
It comes with 14-inch displays surrounded by slimmer bezels, sleek aluminum designs that open 180-degrees to lay-flat, and the latest technologies for performance and connectivity, packed into a super-light 1.45 kg (3.2 lbs) design that is only 17.95 mm thin (0.71 inches).
The new Nitro 5 and Swift 3 with 2nd Gen AMD Ryzen mobile processors will be on display at Acer's showcase at Xinyi Plaza, Xiangti Avenue Plaza in Taipei on May 28 to June 2, 2019.
