Acer will hold their annual [email protected] event in New York on the 11th of April where it has been leaked they will be the first company to launch GeForce GTX 1660 Ti and GTX 1650 based Nitro notebooks.
The information comes from videocardz.com via a presentation slide shown to partners.
The slide lists down two models for 2019, the AN515-54 and the AN517-51, both which are part of the ACER Nitro 5 series notebooks. The first model is a 15.6″ part while the second model is a 17.3″ part. Both models come with standard FHD 60 Hz or FHD 144 Hz panels and feature the 9th generation of Intel Coffee Lake-H processors.
The 15.6″ model would be available in GeForce GTX 1050, GeForce GTX 1650 and GeForce GTX 1660 Ti options while the 17.3″ model would be available in GeForce GTX 1650 and GeForce GTX 1660 Ti options.
The Nitro series tends to be the more affordable gaming option within Acer, while the Predator branding is reserved for the high-end models. I reviewed the AMD based Acer Nitro 5 15.6″ back in November and at the time was one of the best value gaming laptops on the market.
There are no detailed specs for either GeForce 16 series graphics card for the mobile platform but considering NVIDIA has kept specs parity of the desktop and mobility variants, we can expect the mobility variants of the GTX 1660 Ti to feature similar core specs of 1536 CUDA cores and 6 GB of GDDR6 VRAM. Dependant on Max-Q and non-Max-Q variants, the clock speed will change.
