Oriented Pros and creators, the new laptop Acer ConceptD 5 Pro CN515-71P-74YX with 15 inch IPS 4K Pantone screen accelerates multimedia processing thanks to its NVIDIA Turing Quadro RTX 3000 graphics card. It delivers a large overall power with its large quantity of RAM and its Hexa Core i7 Coffee Lake Refresh processor while its reactivity is reinforced by the 2 fast SSDs of its high capacity hybrid storage. Backlit chiclet keyboard and Wi-Fi ax and USB 3.1 Type-C connectors are also on the program of this computer which runs Windows 10 Pro but does not have a biometric reader and Thunderbolt 3.

Chassis, connectors, screen of Acer ConceptD 5 Pro CN515-71P-74YX
With a high-end black aluminum chassis, it sports a discreet and professional design.
The 4th generation AeroBlade 3D technology cools it using 2 fans (59 pale, 0.1mm) with 3 heat pipes as well as ventilation grilles present both at the back and on the sides and below. It is intended to be silent with its announced noise of less than 40 dB.
It works under Windows 10 Pro offering more advanced features than classic Windows 10, especially in network management and security like BitLocker.
Some will regret the absence of a biometric authentication solution, while others will be delighted with their absence.
In any case, the integrated connection to this PC is good, including wireless Bluetooth 5.0 and Wi-Fi ax modules ( more efficient and recent than Wi-Fi ac ) to communicate and connect remotely, an HDMI video output practical to easily connect this PC to a TV and / or a monitor for example, Ethernet and audio ports, 1 USB 3.1 Type-C as well as 3 USB compatible with both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, USB 3.0 ensuring transfers up to ” 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if you plug in USB 3.0 devices.
Too bad it does not have Thunderbolt 3…
Obviously, you can backlight the chiclet keyboard keys to clearly distinguish them in the dark, keyboard with a numeric keypad unlike the ConceptD 7 CN715-71 for example.
The screen targets particularly demanding creatives with its specifications 100% Adobe RGB, Delta E Performances, autonomy of the Acer ConceptD 5 Pro CN515-71P-74YX
The Acer ConceptD 5 Pro CN515-71P-74YX is aimed at those who have a comfortable budget and intend to invest in a high-performance portable laptop oriented towards Pro creation.
It indeed embeds the professional graphics card Quadro RTX 3000 NVIDIA Turing high-end close to the GeForce RTX 2060 but designed precisely to speed up processing under software exploiting the GPU computing power. This is for example the case with Adobe Photoshop / Premiere, AutoCAD or Sony Vegas.
Depending on the tasks performed, the NVIDIA Optimus on-board technology switches automatically and in real time between the Quadro RTX 3000 and the Intel UHD 630 solution integrated into the processor.
Optimus uses the Intel UHD 630 to the maximum despite its very modest performance because it consumes a lot of energy and therefore promotes autonomy. The Quadro RTX 3000 is in practice activated by Optimus to perform graphics processing deemed too heavy for the Intel UHD 630. These two solutions of course allow you to view photos and videos
Multimedia processing is all the faster as this laptop houses hybrid storage with dual SSD of 256 GB for a total SSD of 512 GB intended to host the main software in addition to the system.
As a reminder, an SSD guarantees significantly more responsive and fluid operation than a hard drive. Thanks to the SSD, for example, software launches, starts / stops and processing are much faster than with a hard drive.
And to offer a high capacity, Acer has the good idea to accompany the on-board SSDs with a comfortable hard drive of 1000 GB (swift with its speed of 7200 rpm against 5400 rpm usually) able to accommodate multiple files, as a personal production.
The heart of this computer is up to the task, including a large amount of 32 GB RAM coupled to a Hexa Core i7-9750H Coffee Lake Refresh processor. Demanding users will be delighted with the overall power that this duo delivers.
This will be the case for the creators in particular, who, thanks to these components, benefit from processing much faster than with 8 GB DDR4 and a Quad Core processor in areas that consume RAM and CPU resources exploiting multicore. The difference is particularly important in areas such as 3D rendering, photo editing or video editing.
Finally on the autonomy side, count on approximately 4:30 of battery operation in light use for this PC is heard and heats more than the average of this type of machine when it is strongly pushed (ex: treatments).
