When it comes to gaming, all brands are now all out about more performance in graphics, performance, and design. But this time, one technology anticipated in the industry is now available with the new Acer Nitro lineup and that is the Intel Optane technology.
Focusing on memory access speed, Intel Optane is the latest technology from the processor giant that maximizes the capacity of current storages such as HDDs to be more efficient. It acts as a middle ground from the storage to the system, that enables the system to access apps faster and acts as fast as SSD-like speeds.
Intel Optane aims to cut short waiting times in heavy applications such as games, OS opening, and even some rendering processes. At the demo of Acer in their press launch, one Acer Nitro 5 laptop powered by Intel Optane (1TB HDD + 16GB Optane) booted up 28% faster as compared to a regular laptop with standalone SSD.
Additionally, Acer Nitro 5 is the value positioning of the brand for gamer enthusiasts especially among students. It offers a gaming personality, while having a balance of performance, price and value for money.
