Acer Nitro 5 with AMD Ryzen 5600H, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 launches in India

Acer has launched a refresh for its popular budget gaming laptop, the Nitro 5, in India. The new update now offers the notebook with the latest AMD Ryzen 5000 series CPU and the new NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 GPU. Last month, the company introduced the same laptop powered by Intel’s 10th-gen CPU with the same GPU.

What this means is that the design and looks of the laptop remain the same. The only difference is the different choice of processors. While the AMD-based model is a bit more expensive than the Intel version, it should perform better, as the Ryzen chipset is a more powerful product in direct comparison.
