Relatively lightweight, the designer-oriented gamer laptop Acer Nitro 5 AN515-45-R55Z features a top-of-the-range NVIDIA Ampere GeForce RTX 3060 ray tracing graphics card capable of running the latest games. This GPU also accelerates multimedia processing, as does the high-performance AMD Ryzen 5 Cezanne Hexa Core processor, backed up by fast SSD storage for enhanced responsiveness. Featuring a 15" IPS Full HD anti-glare display that improves fluidity in games with its 144Hz frequency, this versatile black laptop designed for gaming and creating benefits from a backlit keyboard as well as connectivity with Wi-Fi ax and USB-C.
The Acer Nitro 5 AN515-45-R55Z is currently available from Acer France and is positioned in the average in its category where it is one of the few to run under Windows 11.
If this Acer Nitro 5 AN515-45-R55Z does not meet all your criteria, you will find on our guide Gamer laptop other configurations to play with a similar budget. With the same budget, choose the model with the most powerful graphics card, as it will have the most impact on performance.
It boasts a resolutely gamer design, with an angular black chassis cooled by 2 fans, heat pipes and 4 air outlets.
This creator-oriented gamer laptop is well equipped in terms of connectivity with its USB-C, Bluetooth 5.1 and Wi-Fi ax wireless modules (more powerful and recent than Wi-Fi ac) for communication and remote connection, HDMI video output for easy connection to a TV or monitor, for example, Ethernet and audio ports, and 3 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) for transfer speeds up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 when used with USB 3.0 peripherals.
Of course, the chiclet keyboard is equipped with a backlighting system, making it easier to see in the dark.

The screen will be of particular interest to gamers, as it improves fluidity in games thanks to its reduced latency of 3ms and its refresh rate of 144Hz, higher than the 60Hz standard. With its 16:9 format and precise Full HD definition, the screen is also ideal for displaying videos and, more generally, High Definition content. As it adopts IPS technology, the screen also offers better visibility in bright environments (e.g. outdoors) than a glossy slab.
The Acer Nitro 5 AN515-45-R55Z is aimed at those looking for a versatile 15-inch notebook with excellent gaming and creative performance.
This creator-oriented gamer notebook is versatile, with a dual graphics solution combining the dedicated GeForce RTX 3060 card with the processor-integrated Radeon Vega 7 solution, both of which enable photos and videos to be viewed. NVIDIA Optimus technology automatically switches between the two in real time, as and when required.
To maximize battery life, Optimus favors the Radeon Vega 7, despite its modest performance, because it consumes very little power. In terms of autonomy, we're talking about 5 hours of battery operation in light use.
Optimus activates the GeForce RTX 3060 when it comes to executing graphics processing that is too heavy for the Radeon Vega 7. Featuring NVIDIA Ampere architecture, the GeForce RTX 3060 ray tracing is a high-end dedicated graphics card capable of running the latest games.
What's more, the GeForce RTX 3060 accelerates processing in GPU-intensive software such as Adobe Premiere/Photoshop or Sony Vegas, which is of great interest to designers.
The Radeon Vega 7 is housed in the AMD APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) processor. Cezanne Hexa Core Ryzen 5 5600H. This is coupled with 8GB of RAM to deliver solid overall performance.
In particular, the Ryzen 5 5600H offers the advantage of guaranteeing faster processing than a Quad Core, the difference being particularly noticeable in CPU-intensive jobs taking advantage of multi-core processing, such as video editing, 3D rendering or photo retouching.
On the storage side, there's a 512 GB SSD that rivals the hard disk standard in terms of capacity, but is also more energy-efficient, quieter, more shock-resistant and much faster.
In practice, the SSD clearly enhances responsiveness and fluidity on a daily basis, compared with a hard disk. Thanks to the SSD, for example, you'll get to online game maps faster, and enjoy much faster game/software launches, processing and start/stop times.
Of course, if 512 GB isn't enough, an external storage device can be used. In this case, a USB-C/USB 3.0 device is an interesting option for fast transfers.
Finally, it's worth noting that this versatile notebook designed for gaming and creating heats up and makes itself heard when pushed hard (e.g. gaming, processing), albeit at controlled levels.
To contain temperatures, a ventilated support (so be sure to check the dimensions!.
