The Refreshed Acer Nitro 5 With 8th-Gen Intel Core Processors Now In Malaysia

Starting from RM2,999

The Acer Nitro 5 is a pretty decent package, marrying just enough gaming performance on a budget many gamers here in Malaysia can afford. Now a new refresh of the affordable gaming laptop- revealed two months ago– has launched in the country.

The launch event, which saw the Nitro 50 desktop and the expanded line of high-end gaming hardware from the Predator line was held at Sunway Pyramid yesterday. Acer Malaysia is also holding a roadshow there which includes a very tempting flash sale to happen this weekend.

The new Acer Nitro 5 with 8th-gen Coffee Lake Intel Core CPUs for Malaysia comes in three variants:

For RM2,999:

  • Intel Core i5 8300H CPU
  • Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 4GB GPU
  • 4GB RAM
  • 1TB HDD

For RM3,599:

  • Intel Core i7 8750HQCPU
  • Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 4GB GPU
  • 4GB RAM
  • 1TB HDD

For RM3,999:

  • Intel Core i7+ 8750H CPU
  • Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050Ti 4GB GPU
  • 4GB RAM + 16GB Optane Memory
  • 1TB HDD

The biggest difference here is the CPU, with the most expensive variant using the Core i7+ which features Optane Memory. While it is neither a RAM or extra storage space like a hard disk, the Optane Memory will cache certain apps you use the most that in theory will help load times. The highest end also feature the better performing GeForce GTX 1050Ti GPU.

With these price points, looks like the Acer Nitro 5 will remain a good choice for PC gamers on a budget- though we recommend adding more RAM. It will be available at Acer official stores and authorised resellers in Malaysia by July 1st.
