Acer Nitro 16 (AN16-41) review – offers good cooling system and powerful Zen 4 CPU options


You can already find a lot of Zen 4-based laptops in different form factors. One of the iterations is the Acer Nitro 16 (AN16-41). Over the years, the Nitro lineup evolved and now some of these devices are close to the performance levels of the more premium Predator machines. The AN16-41 model boats some pretty mouthwatering specs like NVIDIA Ada Lovelace GPU options with hefty TGPs and Zen 4 or refreshed Zen 3+ CPU variants. The top processor model is the AMD Ryzen 9 7940HS.

Here, we have a 16″ 16:10 display so yes, the screen is taller. You can choose between two 165Hz panels – one 1200p and one 1600p. The notebook also brings goodies to the table such as Nvidia Advanced Optimus, G-Sync, and a MUX switch. Just like many other Nitro devices, the upgradability is good and the same applies to the I/O. You get Wi-Fi 6E + Bluetooth 5.1 for connectivity. The Nitro Sence app is full of useful features such as four power presets, manual fan control, keyboard backlight tunning, and advanced system monitoring.
