Acer announced the next update of the “popular” gaming laptop NITRO 5 – the new generation retained the previous design but switched to the Tiger Lake-H35 rails. Interestingly, Intel has not yet officially announced the 35-watt relatives of the already well-known Tiger Lake-U processors (mobile CPUs that opened the 11th generation Core were released in September 2020) – Intel’s online event at CES 2021 will be held on January 11.
Acer NITRO 5 will be available in two versions – AN515-56-72KT and AN515-56-57YH. The first is based on the more efficient Core i7-11370H, and the second – on the Core i5-11300H. Presumably, both chips are quad-core, but the Core i7-11370H will run at higher frequencies. Along with the 35W TDP quad-core models, the Tiger Lake-H lineup is also expected to feature 45W octa-core CPUs with 24MB L3 cache for flagship gaming laptops mobile workstations. Another difference between the modifications lies in the amount of RAM – 8 or 16 GB.
