Chassis, connectors, screen of Acer Nitro 5 AN515-54-77X0
It sports a clearly gamer design by taking up the codes of the genre with its chassis with angular lines, black brushed metal finish with touches of red.
CoolBoost technology which takes care of its cooling combines 2 fans with heat pipes. The NitroSense application allows you to control the temperature and speed of the fans.
In terms of connectivity, this gaming and multimedia computer is able to satisfy many users. There are Bluetooth 5 and Wi-Fi ax wireless modules ( newer and more efficient than Wi-Fi ac ) to communicate and connect remotely, a practical HDMI video output to easily connect this PC to a TV or monitor for example, Ethernet and audio ports, 1 USB 3.1 Type-C as well as 3 USB all compatible with both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, USB 3.0 ensuring transfers made up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 devices are connected to it.
Thanks to its frequency of 120Hz, the screen reinforces the fluidity in games compared to the standard 60Hz. It also reproduces colors more faithfully than average while ensuring comfortable vertical and horizontal viewing angles thanks to its IPS technology. Well adapted to High Definition content and in particular to videos due to its precise Full HD definition and 16: 9 format, the screen is anti-reflective. It therefore offers better visibility than a brilliant slab in a light environment (eg outside).
The chiclet keyboard can be backlit, which is very useful for distinguishing its keys in dim light.
Keep in mind that to exploit the full potential of this PC, it is necessary to install a complete system, such as a Linux or Windows distribution.
We can for example take advantage of NVIDIA Optimus technology which determines in real time the graphics requirements according to the tasks performed by the user. When necessary, Optimus switches automatically and in real time between the graphics solution integrated into the energy-efficient processor and the more powerful and greedy dedicated card.
The first is preferred as much as possible by Optimus despite its modest benefits to promote autonomy from the second, the two of course allowing you to view photos and videos.
Performances, autonomy of Acer Nitro 5 AN515-54-77X0
The Acer Nitro 5 AN515-54-77X0 can seduce those who are looking for a versatile 15-inch laptop PC performance, oriented games and creation, offering good autonomy and the choice of operating system.
It delivers a global power capable of satisfying demanding users because it is built around an Intel HM370 chipset, a good amount of 16 GB RAM above the average and a Hexa Core i7-9750H Coffee processor. Lake Refresh. Note that the contribution of the latter is currently variable in games compared to a Quad Core.
The fact remains that these components make it possible to obtain, for example, much faster processing than with 8 GB DDR4 and a Quad Core processor. The difference is particularly important in jobs that consume RAM and CPU resources using multicore.
The processing will be all the faster as the creatives use software exploiting the computing power of the GPU, like Sony Vega or Adobe Premiere / Photoshop.
This software can indeed take advantage of the power of the on-board graphics card, the NVIDIA Turing GeForce GTX 1660 Ti, to speed up processing.
The GeForce GTX 1660 Ti will also interest players of course since it is capable of running their favorite games with concessions under the most demanding games in graphics resources to obtain good playability.
In terms of storage, Acer chooses a welcome SSD to speed up processing even more, to enhance fluidity in games and more generally great responsiveness on a daily basis.
Thanks to the SSD, we benefit for example from starts / stops and launches of games / applications much faster than with a simple hard drive, and a faster arrival on the cards of online games.
Here, we find on board an SSD which competes with hard disks in terms of capacity with its 512 GB while being much faster, more energy efficient, more robust and quiet.
That said, 512 GB may be too tight in some. In this case, you can always use an external storage unit like a USB 3.0 device to obtain fast transfers. Logically, a 2.5 inch slot should also be free to add a second SSD or a hard drive.
Finally in terms of autonomy, bet on about 7 hours of battery operation in light use for this PC which certainly heats up and is heard when it is strongly pushed (ex: games, heavy treatments), but this remains under control for this type of PC.
