designer gamer laptop, theAcer Nitro 5 AN517-54-90GF benefits from a powerful Intel Octo Core i9 Tiger Lake-H processor and 16GB of RAM for accelerated multimedia processing, as well as a high-end NVIDIA Ampere GeForce RTX 3070 ray tracing graphics card capable of running the latest games. Featuring a 17-inch IPS Full HD anti-glare display with a 144Hz frequency, this versatile notebook designed for gaming and creating is even more responsive thanks to its fast (but limited-capacity) SSD storage, backlit keyboard and Thunderbolt 4 USB-C and Wi-Fi ax connectivity, all under Windows 11.
The Acer Nitro 5 AN517-54-90GF is currently on display promotion at Boulanger and is positioned as one of the few in its class to offer such a powerful processor with such a high-performance graphics card.
If this Acer Nitro 5 AN517-54-90GF 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 has a gamer look with its black design, angular lines and touches of red.
This designer gamer laptop is cooled by CoolBoost technology via 2 fans adjustable via the NitroSense application, heat pipes and ventilation grilles.
This versatile notebook for gamers and creatives is well equipped in terms of connectivity with its USB-C Thunderbolt, Bluetooth 5.1 and Wi-Fi ax wireless modules (newer and more powerful than Wi-Fi ac) to communicate and connect remotely, its practical HDMI video output for easy connection to a TV or monitor, for example, its Ethernet and audio ports and its 3 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) guaranteeing transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 peripherals are plugged in.
The chiclet keyboard can, of course, be backlit to make it easier to see the keys in the dark.
The screen lends itself well to the display of High Definition content such as videos, thanks to its Full HD definition and 16:9 aspect ratio. It also boasts a frequency of 144Hz, which enhances fluidity in games compared with the standard 60Hz. Thanks to its IPS technology, the screen also offers better-than-average color fidelity and wide viewing angles, both horizontally and vertically. What's more, thanks to its anti-reflective coating, the screen also offers better visibility in bright environments (e.g. outdoors) than a glossy slab, while being more restful for the eyes during prolonged use.
The Acer Nitro 5 AN517-54-90GF will appeal to those looking for a versatile 17-inch notebook with powerful gaming and creative capabilities.
It incorporates one of the most powerful mobile processors, the Intel Octo Core i9-11900H Tiger Lake-H, here combined with 16 GB of RAM to provide all-round power for demanding users.
In particular, this core guarantees much faster processing than a Quad/Hexa Core processor and 8 GB DDR4, the difference being particularly noticeable in CPU- and RAM-intensive jobs that take advantage of multi-core processing, such as video editing, 3D rendering or photo retouching.
Creators will be delighted, especially as the GeForce RTX 3070 dedicated graphics card onboard accelerates multimedia processing in GPU-intensive software such as Adobe Premiere/Photoshop or Sony Vegas.
Yet the top-of-the-range GeForce RTX 3070 ray tracing with NVIDIA Ampere architecture is aimed primarily at gamers. With GeForce RTX 3070, you can play the latest graphics-intensive titles at a high level of detail.
In practice, the GeForce RTX 3070 ray tracing is activated by Optimus technology to carry out graphics work deemed too heavy for the Iris Xe directly housed in the Core i9, typically for gaming. With either of these graphics units, it is of course possible to view photos and videos.
Optimus favors the Iris Xe to the maximum, despite its much more modest performance, because it consumes little energy, which favors autonomy.
When it comes to battery operation, you can expect around 6 hours of light use.
On the storage side, an SSD clearly enhances responsiveness and fluidity on a daily basis, compared to a simple hard disk. Thanks to the SSD, for example, you'll be able to get to online game maps faster, and you'll be able to launch games/software, process and start/stop much more quickly.
It has to be said that an SSD is much faster than a hard disk, while consuming less energy, being more robust and quieter.
The 512 GB capacity offered here corresponds to the standard for hard disks, which may be too little for some.
However, if more space is needed, an external storage device can help. In this case, a USB-C/Thunderbolt/USB 3.0 device is an interesting option for fast transfers.
And while its weight and large format make it difficult to transport, a 17" is nonetheless comfortable for mainly sedentary use (e.g. at home).
In any case, expect this multi-media creative gamer laptop to heat up and make itself heard when pushed hard (e.g. gaming, processing).
A ventilated support can be associated with this computer if required to contain its temperatures (remember to check the dimensions!).
