Next-gen Acer gaming laptops listed with new CPUs and GPUs
NVIDIA RTX 3070 Ti Laptop GPU is now confirmed.
At PC21.fr listings of three, yet unreleased Intel 12th Gen Core “Alder Lake” laptops have emerged. One of the listings confirms that there is indeed GeForce RTX 3070 Ti Laptop GPU (listed in the MSI 2022 gaming laptop leak as GN20-E6). This Acer Nitro AN515-58 gaming laptop is also equipped with an Intel Core i7-12700H (14-core CPU), 1440p 165Hz display, and (only) 8GB of DDR4-3200 memory.
Furthermore, the French retailer’s website confirms that Acer Nitro 5 laptops (AN517-55 and AN515-58) with Core i5-12500H CPU and RTX 3050 Ti Laptop GPU are also coming. This is in fact the first time such a CPU has been mentioned by any retailer. Both laptops are supposedly going to cost under 1300 EUR (with VAT), which unfortunately is still more than 999 EUR/USD than the last-gen starting price for gaming RTX 3060 laptops.
The specifications of the RTX 3070 Ti aren’t known yet. The card is expected to feature a cut-down GA104 GPU with fewer cores than RTX 3080 (6144) and more than RTX 3070 (5120). This SKU should retain 8GB GDDR6 and 256-bit memory configuration. The RTX 3050 Ti, on the other hand, has been released more than half a year ago.
