Acer Nitro 5 2020 Features:

Acer Nitro 5 previous-gen models’ thermal system was not liked by most of the gamers and technology experts because it used the two fans on the same side only, due to which CPU and GPU shared the same heat pipes and the heat was not distributed symmetrically inside the laptop. But it seems that Acer has listened to their feedback and in this years’ Nitro 5 they have improved the thermal system finally!

This time Acer has introduced a dual-fan cooling system with four exhaust vents for better cooling under heavy load. This design of the cooling system is also known as a dual-channel fan cooling system and is used in most of the flagships gaming laptops. Due to this small change, Acer claims, it will achieve an overall 25% improvement in thermal performance over the 2019 model. Apart from this, Nitro 5 also comes with its trademark CoolBoost technology that is capable of increasing fan speed by 10% and CPU/GPU cooling by 9% compared to auto mode.

You can also monitor the fan speed CPU/GPU temperatures and much more all at one place in the NitroSense software

This time Acer Nitro 5 comes with a 4 zone RGB keyboard which was missing in the previous-gen models. This is a huge upgrade, especially in the budget segment gaming laptops, and will surely impress most of the gamers. There is a 1.6mm travel distance in this upgraded keyboard for efficient typing experience.
