Professional Review has come forward with its review of the gaming laptop, Acer Nitro 5 featuring AMD’s latest Zen3+ Ryzen 7 6800H CPU and GeForce RTX 3060 GPU.
The Specs are very ideal for a gaming laptop. The Acer Nitro 5 is equipped with a Ryzen 7 6800H CPU that has 8-cores and 16-threads. The processor has up to a 4.7 GHz boost clock. The gaming laptop features a dual 8GB DDR5-4800 kit as this APU supports only DDR5. When it comes to GPU, this laptop is outfitted with RTX 3060 with a TGP of 140W. The gamers will get a 2560×1440 15.6-inch display along with a refresh rate of 165Hz.
The laptop comprises a USB4 Gen2 (the review claims it to be up to 10Gbps but it should go as high as 20 Gbps) supported by DisplayPort 1.4. It also features an HDMI 2.1 connector.
Unfortunately, the review does not shed light on the GPU performance of the laptop. Though still based on Zen3 architecture, the Ryzen 6000 series features new generation RDNA2 integrated graphics. The 6800H uses the full 12 Compute Unit GPU, which makes it very much suitable for this test.
In Cinebench R20/R23, the laptop has proved to be 9% faster than Cezanne-based Ryzen 7 5800H in all tests and 5% faster than Ryzen 9 5900HX as per the data provided by the Professional Review. This gap can, however, be filled as users are likely to witness better scores for each CPU with varying laptop designs.
At its 2022 Product Premiere AMD was focusing on Rembrandt’s battery life-extending features. Therefore it should be noted that this particular laptop had a seemingly short battery life of 2.5 hours with 40% brightness and doing light tasks. With all the power-related features introduced with Rembrandt APUs, one would expect this to be higher.
Professional Review has also mentioned the price range of the Nitro 5 series. The new generation gaming laptop will be available from 1599 EUR. A clear hike in prices can be seen with the series being 400 EUR pricier than the previous generation. This is primarily because of DDR5 memory being introduced as well as component shortages experienced lately.
