Chassis, connectors, screen of Acer Nitro 5 AN515-55-73LA
It sports a gamer design with its black chassis with angular lines.
CoolBoost technology takes care of cooling it with 2 fans and 4 ventilation grilles while the NitroSense application allows you to control the temperature and speed of the fans.
In terms of connectivity, this gamer-oriented and creative computer is well equipped with its Bluetooth 5.0 and Wi-Fi ax modules ( newer and more efficient than Wi-Fi ac ) to communicate and connect remotely wirelessly, its video output HDMI and useful for easily connecting it to a TV for example, its audio and Ethernet ports as well as its 3 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) guaranteeing transfers up to 10 times faster than with USB 2.0 if connected USB 3.0 devices.
The chiclet keyboard is of course adorned with a backlighting system for the keys to clearly discern them in the dark, the keys mainly used by players being highlighted by an entourage.
Thanks to its frequency of 144Hz, the screen enhances the fluidity in games compared to the standard 60Hz, which will interest players. It also reproduces colors more faithfully than average while ensuring significant vertical and horizontal viewing angles through its IPS technology. As it adopts a precise Full HD definition and a 16: 9 format, the screen lends itself well to displaying High Definition content and in particular videos. Anti-reflective, the screen also offers better visibility than a shiny panel in a bright environment (eg outside).
Performances, autonomy of Acer Nitro 5 AN515-55-73LA
The Acer Nitro 5 AN515-55-73LA can be of interest to those who are looking for a versatile 15-inch laptop with high performance, game and creation oriented.
It is capable of running recent games as it embeds the NVIDIA Turing GeForce RTX 2060 NVIDIA Turing dedicated card with ray tracing.
Depending on the tasks performed, NVIDIA Optimus on-board technology switches automatically and in real time between the GeForce RTX 2060 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 GeForce RTX 2060 is in practice activated by Optimus to perform graphics processing deemed too heavy for the Intel UHD 630. Both of course allow you to view photos and videos.
In addition, software that takes advantage of the computing power of the GPU to speed up processing can use the RTX 2060. This is the case, for example, of Adobe Premiere / Photoshop or Sony Vegas, which will be of interest to creators.
They will be delighted to be dealing with a heart in tune with creation. Composed of a Hexa Core i7-10750H Comet Lake-H processor and a good amount of 16 GB RAM, it delivers a global power capable of attracting demanding users.
Admittedly, the contribution of the Hexa Core is currently variable in games compared to the Quad Core.
But this core guarantees faster processing than a Quad Core processor and 8 GB DDR4 in areas that consume CPU and RAM resources exploiting multicore, such as 3D rendering, photo editing or video editing.
The storage is up to par, entrusted to an SSD for significantly more fluid and responsive operation than with a simple hard drive. Thanks to the SSD, we obtain in particular starts / stops, game launches / software or even much faster processing but also a faster arrival on the cards of online games.
An SSD is much faster than a hard drive while being more energy efficient, more robust and quieter. And here, we have a 1 TB SSD, a large capacity that easily compares with hard drives.
Finally, with regard to the autonomy of this portable whose transport is facilitated by the weight contained, count on approximately 3 hours of operation on battery in light use. Expect it to heat up and be heard when it is strongly pushed (eg games, treatments).
