Acer Nitro 5 AN517-43 Review And Download

Review

In Acer’s gaming laptop lineup, the Nitro series is known for its affordability compared to the Predator series. This is reflected in its design: the Acer Nitro 5 AN517-55 sports a more subdued look without flashy elements or multi-colored lighting. The body is crafted from plastic, with the top of the lid featuring a “semi-matte” surface—smooth with faint reflections of bright objects visible at wide angles. The only standout design feature is the thin, unobtrusive colored lines on the otherwise all-black cover.

The 2022 Acer Nitro 5 AN517-55 lineup offers two screen sizes: 15.6 inches and 17.3 inches. Our review focuses on the 17.3-inch model. With this larger screen, the laptop is notably substantial, measuring nearly 3 cm thick and weighing 3 kg.

The Acer Nitro 5 AN517-55 screen bezels are of average size: 9.5 mm on the sides and 11.5 mm on the top. The case feels robust, exhibiting minimal flex and creaking. Due to the substantial weight of the base, the lid can be opened with one hand without any issues. The maximum opening angle is approximately 150 degrees.

Connectivity options are well-distributed across the sides and back of the laptop. On the left side, you’ll find an Ethernet port, one USB 3.2 port, and a combo audio jack for a wired headset. The right side houses two more USB 3.2 ports and activity indicators. On the back, there is a power connector, a USB-C port (supporting Thunderbolt 4 and device charging), and an HDMI 2.1 port.

The Acer Nitro 5 features an island-type keyboard with standard laptop keystrokes. Thanks to the laptop’s generous size, it includes a full numeric keypad. The width of the main keyboard unit is only slightly narrower than a typical desktop model, with a difference of just about 5 mm. This means that touch typists will not need to adjust much to the key size or spacing. The keyboard remains sturdy during use, with minimal flex unless deliberately pressed with significant force.

the Acer Nitro 5 came with a 17.3-inch IPS panel from BOE (BOEhydis NE173QHM-NY6), offering a resolution of 2560×1440 pixels, a 16:9 aspect ratio, and a maximum refresh rate of 165 Hz. Additionally, the Acer Nitro 5 AN517-55 model range includes versions with a Full HD resolution and a 144 Hz refresh rate.

The Acer Nitro 5 (AN517-55) series features Intel 12th generation processors, offering options like the Intel Core i5-12500H or, as in our review unit, the Intel Core i7-12700H. For graphics, the AN517-55 series includes configurations with NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 series mobile GPUs, ranging from the GeForce RTX 3050 (4 GB) to the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti (8 GB). Our test unit came equipped with the latter.

The Intel Core i7-12700H is a robust mobile processor from the Alder Lake family, introduced in early 2022. This 12-core CPU includes 6 high-performance cores (Golden Cove) with Hyper-Threading and 6 energy-efficient cores (Gracemont), allowing it to handle up to 20 threads simultaneously. The high-performance cores operate at frequencies between 2.3-4.7 GHz, while the energy-efficient cores run at 1.7-3.5 GHz. Manufactured using a 10 nm process, the CPU has a base power consumption of 45 W, which can rise to 115 W in turbo mode during short-term loads.
