Acer has lifted the curtains of the new Nitro gaming laptops at the ongoing CES 2023—packed with the latest 13th Gen Intel processors and RTX 40-series GPUs. In this article, we will discuss the specs, features, expected price, and availability of the Acer Nitro 2023 (16” and 17”) in Nepal.

Acer Nitro Gaming Series (2023) Overview:

Before we start talking about the new hardware, we must talk about Acer’s new convention. As usual, the Nitro brand is home to the company’s budget gaming lineup. That said, Acer has gotten rid of the Nitro 5 and Nitro 7 moniker and is representing the new gaming laptops by their display sizes.

Display and Design

The new Acer Nitro gaming laptop (2023) comes in two screen sizes: 16” and 17.3—Nitro 16 and Nito 17, respectively. The Acer Nitro 16 replaces the 15.6” model from last year. It now has a 5% larger screen with options for WUXGA and WQXGA resolution. Likewise, it refreshes at 165Hz refresh rate with support for Advanced Optimus.

On the other hand, the Nitro 17 (2023) is available with a 144Hz FHD or a 165Hz QHD screen. While the overall design of the screen is pretty much the same across the two models. You get an all-plastic body on both— with the 17’” being a bit larger. The chassis weighs around 3 kg and measures 28.9mm at its thickest point.
