Chassis, connectors, screen of Acer Nitro AN515-54-573Y
It sports a clearly gamer design with its angular chassis with black brushed metal finish and touches of red giving it a resolutely gamer design.
CoolBoost technology takes care of its cooling, using 2 fans and heat pipes associated with the NitroSense application to control the temperature and speed of the fans.
The connectivity built into this versatile computer is good, consisting of 1 USB 3.1 Type-C, Bluetooth 5 wireless modules and Wi-Fi ac to communicate and connect remotely, a practical HDMI video output for easy connection this PC has a TV or a monitor for example, Ethernet and audio ports but also 3 USB all compatible with both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, the USB 3.0 guaranteeing transfers made up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 devices are connected to it.
The chiclet keyboard has a welcome backlight system to distinguish them correctly in limited ambient light.
The screen will appeal to many users because it is suitable for High Definition content and in particular for videos due to its precise Full HD definition and its 16: 9 format. Thanks to its IPS technology, the screen displays significant vertical and horizontal viewing angles as well as more accurate colorimetry than the average. As it is anti-reflective, it also shows more readability than a glossy panel in a light environment (ex: outdoor).
Performances, autonomy of Acer Nitro AN515-54-573Y
The Acer Nitro AN515-54-573Y is a high-performance 15-inch laptop, designed for versatile use and offering good autonomy.
In this regard, expect about 8 hours of battery operation in light use for this computer, which is not, however, a thin and light Ultrabook.
Despite this good autonomy, this laptop delivers solid general performance capable of satisfying many users because it is built around an Intel HM370 chipset, a Quad Core i5-9300H Coffee Lake Refresh processor and 8 GB of memory vivid.
Thanks to the Quad Core i5-9300H, we obtain, for example, faster processing than with a low-consumption Quad Core processor, particularly in demanding jobs in CPU resources exploiting multicore.
Creatives can therefore be interested in this PC, especially if they use software that takes advantage of the computing power of the GPU, such as Adobe Photoshop and Premiere or Sony Vegas.
The dedicated 3 GB GeForce GTX 1050 graphics card is indeed on board. It is also capable of running games that are not too greedy in graphics resources.
In practice, the GeForce GTX 1050 is activated / deactivated automatically and in real time by the integrated NVIDIA Optimus technology, as needed.
Optimus favors as much as possible the Intel UHD 630 solution integrated into the Quad Core i5 despite its very modest benefits because it is energy efficient and therefore promotes autonomy. The GeForce GTX 1050 is therefore activated by Optimus to perform graphics processing that is too heavy for the Intel UHD 630, both of course allowing you to view photos and videos.
Keep in mind, however, that this laptop heats up and makes itself heard when it is under heavy load (eg games, heavy treatments), but this remains under control for this type of PC.
Hybrid, storage will also appeal to creatives because it ensures good daily responsiveness thanks to the fast SSD and a large capacity thanks to the 1000 GB hard drive. The SSD is intended to accommodate the main software in addition to the system, the rest finding place on the hard drive.
Thanks to the SSD, we benefit from a much better fluidity and reactivity than with a simple hard drive. This results in particular in much faster starts / stops and launches of games / applications, and a faster arrival on the cards of online games.
