A German retailer ElectronicPartner (via IThome), has shared the specifications for Acer's next-generation Nitro 5 (AN517-41-R9S5) gaming laptop. On this iteration, AMD joins forces with Nvidia to bring out the best of what the Zen 3 CPU and Ampere GPU architectures have to offer.

The Nitro 5 will leverage one of AMD's much-awaited Ryzen 5000 (Cezanne) mobile chips for starters. The Ryzen 7 5800H is an octa-core processor with simultaneous multithreading (SMT) with 16MB of L3 cache at its disposal. A Geekbench 5 benchmark of this same Nitro 5 device reveals the Ryzen 7 5800H with a very respectable 3.2 GHz base clock and 4.44 GHz boost clock. It's approximately 32.7% and 10.2% faster than the current Ryzen 7 4800H in single-and multi-core performance.

Although the Ryzen 7 5800H does come with a Vega iGPU, the Nvidia's GeForce RTX 3080 (Ampere) will do all the heavy lifting when it comes to graphical workloads. It's probably the mobile version, which will likely feature cut-down specifications. Thus far, the German merchant listed the graphics card with 8GB of memory, which we presume to be of the GDDR6 type.

The Nitro 5 is equipped with a 17.3-inch FHD (1920 x 1080) IPS panel with a nice refresh rate of 144 Hz. With the GeForce RTX 3080 on duty, the Nitro 5 should have no problems hitting that refresh rate, especially at 1080p. The particular configuration that ElectronicPartner is offering also comes with 32GB of DDR4 memory and a 1TB SSD.

The laptop's other attributes include a full-size keyboard with backlighting, an integrated webcam with microphone, Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity, and a Li-ion battery with a battery life of up to eight hours. The Nitro 5 also provides one HDMI port, three USB 3.0 ports, one USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-C port, and a combo 3.5mm audio jack.

The Nitro 5 sells for €1,948.61 (~$2,372.16) at the German store, but that's with value-added tax (VAT) included. After deducting Germany's 19% VAT rate, the price comes down to $1,993.41. However, we should bear in mind that electronics are typically more expensive overseas, so the Nitro 5 could end up costing less in the US.

    I wish more laptop manufacturers would take advantage of the mobile Ryzens. The Omen that I got has the 4800H which is an amazing processor. There's only like less then 5 that use this CPU, whereas there's about a thousand that have the Intel i7 or i9. And the current Intels are nowhere near as good.

    Companies can't sell what isn't getting produced. AMD only has so much capacity for all their chips.
