Acer announces new 4K gaming notebook for mid-November release

Acer will be releasing a new 4K gaming notebook this holiday season that offers some impressive specs within a 5lb body.


Acer is introducing a new version of its V Nitro Black Edition gaming notebook line that allows you to get in on the 4K gaming action with ease.

The new Acer Aspire V Nitro Black Edition features a 15.-6inch screen with a 3840 x 2160 resolution, Intel Core i7-4710HQ quad-core processor, an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 860M with 2GB of dedicated GDDR5 VRAM, 16GB DDR3 RAM, 3 USB 3.0 ports, and both a 256GB SSD drive and a 1TB hard drive. All of this is featured within a pretty light chassis as the notebook weighs in a 5.29lbs, making it quite portable for a gaming notebook.

The Aspire VN7-591G-70JY will be available in mid-November and will retail for $1,499.99.

If you would rather not have a UHD display on your Aspire V Nitro Black Edition, but instead a FHD display, you can be eligible for a digital copy of Assassin's Creed Unity when you purchase at either Amazon, NewEgg or Tiger Direct while supplies last. This is certainly a nice little incentive, especially since the FHD version is priced slightly lower at $1,099.99.

      I feel so bad for the person who gets this and tries to do 3840x2160 on a 860M.

        Needless to say, it should make for a rather interesting experience.

          I'll confirm with Acer what's up with the model number pointing to that version. The press release had that model number tied with the new one in this story.

            Also ask what they're smoking to think that video card will push 4k gaming. Because I really want some!

      Video cards are not ready for 4k. :(

      If it has a good video scaler, a 4k monitor would still be pretty cool. You could play at all sorts of weird resolutions, like 900p, 1200p, and the scaling artifacts would be much less noticeable than on a 1080p display

      Pretty sure Lenovo came out with one of these about 6 months ago. Looks better as a photo editor than gaming machine.

        I have a Yoga 2 Pro with 3200x1800 and it's sharp. However the interface buttons and Windows are all so tiny at that resolution.

          That was my question about the y50 UHD - can you read anything on the 15" screen?

          I really hope Windows gets this sorted. Pixel densities are only going to keep increasing
