With video games being more demanding by the day, you need a laptop or a gaming PC that is powerful enough to handle everything the games throw at you (take that, 'Assassin's Creed Valhalla'!).

Well, if you've been searching but to no luck, don't worry; Acer Malaysia has got your back.

All the power you need

The laptop and PC company has just launched their new range of ultra-powerful gaming peripherals: the Nitro 5 gaming laptop and the Nitro QG241Y P monitor.

The Nitro 5 is powered by an AMD Ryzen™ 9 5900 HX mobile processor to deliver fast and efficient performance, while the Nitro QG241Y P monitor features rapid 165hz refresh rate with HDR10 support.

In layman's term, it means both products are crazy powerful, and you'll be able to show even the most demanding video game who's the boss (except of 'Kingdom Hearts'' Sephiroth, 'cos that b**ch is annoying!).

During the launch of the 'Zero To Nitro Campaign', Johnson Seet, Director of Consumer Business, Product and Marketing, Acer Malaysia, said that the new products will help you demolish video game bosses and daily tasks at hand.

“We believe 2021 will be a better year for everybody. As we continue to rise above challenges, launch new products and maintain our position in the IT industry, I would like to thank all of you for your strong support.

"Our latest Nitro 5 is powered by AMD Ryzen Series 5000 Mobile processor which allows you to conquer games and tasks alike,” he said.
