Looks like the upcoming microtower gaming desktop, the Acer Nitro N50-100, has had its specifications revealed on the official website for Acer Slovakia. The biggest highlight here being that it is powered by the AMD Ryzen 5 2500X CPU.
There were plenty of rumours going around with regards to the 2nd generation AMD Ryzen processors. With this particular piece of information out, it would seem to suggest that the quad-core Ryzen 3 2300X and Ryzen 5 2500X CPU will be coming sooner than later.
Both of those CPUs were designed to fill in the performance and price gaps left by the more powerful Ryzen 5 2600X and Ryzen 7 2700X. It seems that Acer refuses to waste any time as the manufacturer has already prepared its Nitro N50-100 gaming PC with the latest Ryzen 5 2500X processor.
The Ryzen 5 2500X is built under AMD’s Zen+ microarchitecture and manufactured utilizing GlobalFoundries’ 12 nanometer process. It’s a 65-watt CPU with 4 cores and 8 threads running at a 3.6GHz base clock and turbo clock hitting 4GHz. While this is unconfirmed, the Ryzen 5 2500X is said to sport 18MB of combined L2 and L3 cache.
In the case of the Nitro N50-100, Acer has paired the Ryzen 5 2500X processor with a single stick of 8GB DDR4 2666 MHz RAM, with the AMD Radeon RX580 4GB GDDR5 handing the graphics department. For storage, the Acer Nitro N50-100 utilizes a 256GB SSD along with a 1TB 7200RPM hard drive.
The website also showed that the motherboard for the Nitro N50-100 only has a single PCIe x16 and M.2 slot. There’s no mention of whether the SSD being used here is in SATA or M.2 form. For connectivity, it will have the 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.2, four USB 2.0 ports, one USB 3.0 ports, two USB 3.1 ports and an RJ45 LAN port.
Acer’s Slovakian online store has the Nitro N50-100 on sale for €943.50 (RM4,456.15). At the time of this writing, there is no word on whether this will be coming to Malaysia or not, but the fact that it is using the Ryzen 5 2500X is a very interesting thing to take note of.
