Chassis, connectors, screen of Acer Nitro 5 AN515-54-56B8
It sports a clearly gamer design with its black chassis in brushed metal finish with angular lines and touches of red.
CoolBoost technology takes care of its cooling, using 2 fans to heat pipes. The associated NitroSense application allows you to control the temperature and speed of the fans.
The integrated connection to this gamer-oriented computer is good, composed of 1 USB 3.1 Type-C, Bluetooth 5 wireless modules and Wi-Fi ax ( better and more recent than Wi-Fi ac ) to communicate and connect remotely, an HDMI video output in order to easily connect this PC to a TV or a monitor for example, Ethernet and audio ports without forgetting 3 USB all compatible with both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, the USB 3.0 guaranteeing transfers taking place up to 10 times faster than with USB 2.0 if you connect USB 3.0 devices to it.
Of course, you can backlight the chiclet keyboard keys which is practical to better discern them in the dark.
The screen lends itself well to the display of High Definition content and in particular to videos due to its precise Full HD definition and its 16: 9 format. Thanks to its IPS technology, its horizontal and vertical viewing angles are important and its colorimetry more faithful than the average. As it is anti-reflective, the screen also provides better visibility in a bright environment than a shiny panel (eg outside).
Performances, autonomy of Acer Nitro 5 AN515-54-56B8
The Acer Nitro 5 AN515-54-56B8 targets those who are looking for a versatile 15-inch laptop with high performance, games oriented and good autonomy.
It delivers solid general performance capable of satisfying a maximum of users because it is built around an Intel HM370 chipset, a Quad Core i5-9300H Coffee Lake Refresh processor and 8 GB of RAM.
Thanks to the Quad Core i5-9300H, we benefit in particular from faster processing than with a low-consumption Quad Core processor, particularly in areas that consume CPU resources taking advantage of multicores such as video editing, photo editing or 3D rendering.
Both players and creators will appreciate finding on-board hybrid storage with a total capacity of 1.2 TB above average. There is more specifically a 256 GB SSD to house the system as well as the main games / software as well as a hard drive with a large capacity of 1000 GB to accommodate the rest.
On a daily basis, the SSD has the advantage of guaranteeing significantly more responsive and fluid operation than a simple hard drive. Thanks to the SSD, we benefit for example from software launches / games, starts / stops and treatments much faster, but also from a faster arrival on the cards of online games.
As this laptop has the dedicated NVIDIA Turing GeForce GTX 1650 4 GB dedicated card, this PC is capable of running a large number of games as long as we are ready to adapt under the most demanding titles in terms of graphics resources to obtain a good playability.
In practice, the GeForce GTX 1650 is activated / deactivated automatically and in real time by the integrated NVIDIA Optimus technology, as needed.
Optimus gives maximum preference to the Intel UHD 630 solution integrated into the processor despite its very modest benefits because it consumes a lot of energy and therefore promotes autonomy. The GeForce GTX 1650 is therefore activated by Optimus to perform graphics processing that is too heavy for the Intel UHD 630. These two solutions of course allow you to view photos and videos.
In addition, the GeForce GTX 1650 can be used by software that takes advantage of GPU computing power to speed up multimedia processing, such as Adobe Photoshop / Premiere or Sony Vegas, which will interest the most creative.
