Performance, autonomy of the Acer Aspire 3 A315-55G-53JG
The Acer Aspire 3 A315-55G-53JG is a simple 15-inch laptop designed for general purpose use.
It will interest those who wish to benefit from a high storage capacity because it incorporates a 1000 GB hard drive.
In addition, this Ultrabook takes advantage of NVIDIA Optimus technology. It assesses graphic needs in real time. When needed, Optimus automatically switches in real time between the Intel UHD 620 solution integrated into the processor and the dedicated GeForce MX230 card.
Optimus gives maximum preference to the Intel UHD 620 despite its reduced performance because it is energy efficient and promotes autonomy compared to the more greedy and powerful GeForce MX230.
Positioned on the entry level, the GeForce MX230 is capable of handling games that consume little graphics resources. Of course, whether with the Intel UHD 620 or the GeForce MX230, you can watch photos and videos.
In addition, this Ultrabook is equipped with a high-performance Quad Core i5-8265U Whiskey Lake processor, capable of satisfying many users. It is accompanied by an amount of standard RAM of 4 GB which shows its limits in multitasking. However if you want to be more comfortable in this area, you can always add a RAM module on the free slot.
As for the autonomy of this Ultrabook whose weight and finesse facilitate transport, expect about 5 hours of battery operation in light use.
