Chassis, connectors, screen of Acer Nitro 5 AN515-55-50MY
With its black frame with angular lines, it sports a clearly gamer design.
It is cooled by CoolBoost technology which uses 2 fans and ventilation grilles. The NitroSense app allows you to control the temperature and speed of the fans.
This gamer-oriented laptop PC is well equipped in terms of connectivity with its Bluetooth 5.0 and Wi-Fi ax modules ( more recent and efficient than Wi-Fi ac ) to communicate and connect remotely wirelessly, its practical HDMI video output to easily connect it to a TV or monitor for example, its Ethernet and audio ports, its USB-C without forgetting its 3 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) guaranteeing transfers made up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 devices are plugged into it.
A backlighting system is fitted to the chiclet keyboard, which is very practical for distinguishing its keys in a dimly lit environment. The keys that players use the most are outlined in red.
Thanks to its IPS technology, the screen has comfortable vertical and horizontal viewing angles and offers more faithful than average colorimetry. It is also very suitable for displaying High Definition content and especially videos with its precise Full HD definition and its 16: 9 format. Anti-reflective treatment, the screen also offers better visibility in a bright environment (eg outdoors) than a shiny panel.
Performance, battery life of Acer Nitro 5 AN515-55-50MY
The Acer Nitro 5 AN515-55-50MY is for those who are looking for a versatile 15-inch versatile high-performance laptop with a large storage capacity.
It offers a total of 1.2 TB, which is much higher than the average, thanks to its hybrid solution combining a 256 GB SSD designed to house the system as well as the main software, with a hard drive of large capacity of 1000 GB able to accommodate the rest.
On a daily basis, the SSD guarantees much better fluidity and responsiveness than a simple hard drive. Thanks to the SSD, we take advantage, for example, of starts / stops, treatments and launches of games / software much faster than with a hard drive, or even a faster arrival on the cards of online games.
It is precisely possible to play a number of titles on this gaming laptop if you agree to make some concessions under the most demanding games in terms of graphics resources to obtain good playability.
Because this computer embeds the dedicated graphics card GeForce GTX 1650 Ti NVIDIA Turing. Depending on the tasks performed, the on-board NVIDIA Optimus technology switches automatically and in real time between the GeForce GTX 1650 Ti and the Intel UHD 630 solution integrated into the processor.
Optimus uses the Intel UHD 630 as much as possible despite its very modest benefits because it uses little energy and therefore promotes battery life.
In this regard, bet on about 3 hours of battery operation in light use.
The GeForce GTX 1650 Ti is in practice activated by Optimus to perform graphics processing deemed too heavy for the Intel UHD 630. With one or the other, we can obviously watch photos and videos.
But the GeForce GTX 1650 Ti also has the advantage of speeding up processing under software using this GPU computing power, such as Adobe Premiere / Photoshop or Sony Vegas, which creative people will appreciate.
The Intel UHD 630 is integrated within the Quad Core i5-10300H, Intel Comet Lake-H processor which, associated with 8 GB of RAM, provides solid overall performance capable of satisfying many users. This duo supports the GTX 1650 Ti well in games.
The Quad Core i5-10300H also guarantees faster processing than a low-power Quad Core processor in CPU-intensive areas that take advantage of multicore, such as photo editing, video editing or 3D rendering, which will be of interest to creators.
Finally, this portable PC displays a controlled weight for a 15-inch but is heard and heats up when it is strongly used (eg games, treatments).
