Acer has just taken off the covers from its new entry in its V series of laptops, the new V Nitro Black Edition. Acer's V Nitro Black Edition comes in two flavors: the V15, and V17, with the new configuration on the V15 model featuring some upgraded innards, including an Ultra HD display.
The new V15 series VN7-591G-70JY features a 15.6-inch IPS-based 4K display, so we have 3840x2160 as its resolution. We have Intel's Core i7-4710HQ CPU, providing four cores at up to 3.5GHz each, 16GB of DDR3 RAM, NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 860M with 2GB of dedicated GDDR5 RAM, a 256GB SSD backed up by a 1TB mechanical drive, no optical drive, three USB 3.0 ports, SD card reader, Gigabit Ethernet, 802.11 a/b/g/n Wi-Fi, and a starting price of $1500.
Given that there is a 3840x2160 display on the new V Nitro laptop, the relatively weak GeForce GTX 860M isn't going to do well at 4K. Acer really should've optioned the new Maxwell-based GTX 900M series, which would've suited the new laptop much more.
