Acer Nitro 5 2022 version have been listed with Intel's Alder Lake i7 and RTX 3070 Ti
A French eCommerce platform has listed the new Acer Nitro 5 laptop variant with the Alder Lake i7-12700H and the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti chipsets. It is currently listed as "out of stock," the selling price is extremely competitive. At €1836 after-tax, the Alder Lake and Ampere-powered gaming laptop are a good €400 cheaper than some Nitro 5 models with the GeForce RTX 3080 and Ryzen 7 5800H.
The non-Ti mobile GeForce RTX 3070 is often just 10-15 percent slower than the mobile GeForce RTX 3080. With more CUDA cores, the Nitro 5's GeForce RTX 3070 Ti could get within a few percentage points of the flagship GPU, at a significantly lower price. Meanwhile, the Alder Lake i7-12700H is in a class of its own, beating even the Ryzen 9 5900HX by over 30 percent.
Apart from the CPU and GPU, the new model is mostly a match for the older Nitro 5, with an identical QHD 165 Hz display, but somewhat less memory and storage. At €1836, this new Acer Nitro 5 model could be a price-performance champ when it launches.
