If you examine machines meticulously, you may easily notice that the Acer Nitro 5 Spin is powered by an 8th Generation Intel processor, while the Omen only comes with the 7th Generation Intel processor. However, there’s a significant difference in terms of clock speed. And a lower clock speed means a slower processing speed when taken into note independent of the RAM and storage.

N-VIDIA GeForce GTX 1000 series is the fastest gaming memory series available in the market at moment. There are two variants of the graphics cards available in market. One that’s packed on the Acer Nitro 5 Spin, the regular GeForce GTX 1050 and the GeForce GTX 1050Ti powering the HP Omen. The 1050Ti variant is an SLI variant and allows you to connect multiple graphics memory together, which is great. Whereas the feature is not available on the regular variants. However, the idea to connect multiple graphic cards in a mid-range notebook sounds vague.
