Chassis, connectors, screen of Acer Nitro 5 AN515-44-R838
With its black brushed metal finish frame with angular lines and touches of red, it sports a resolutely gamer design.
This laptop has good connectivity including 1 USB 3.1 Type-C, Wi-Fi ax wireless modules ( newer and more efficient than Wi-Fi ax ) and Bluetooth 5.0 for remote connections and communications, an output HDMI video useful for easy connection to a monitor or TV for example, audio and Ethernet ports or even 3 USB (USB 2.0 compatible) guaranteeing transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if you plug in above USB 3.0 devices.
The chiclet keyboard can of course be backlit, which is practical to better distinguish its keys in the event of reduced ambient light.
The screen lends itself well to the display of High Definition content such as videos due to its precise Full HD definition and its 16: 9 format. Anti-reflective coating, the screen also offers better visibility than a shiny panel in a bright environment (eg outdoors). Thanks to its IPS technology, the screen has large vertical and horizontal viewing angles. Its colorimetry is however average, below that of more high-end IPS panels.
Performances, battery life of Acer Nitro 5 AN515-44-R838
The Acer Nitro 5 AN515-44-R838 is a powerful 15-inch laptop PC oriented game and creation, but also nomadic.
Thanks to the dedicated NVIDIA Turing GeForce GTX 1650 on-board graphics card, this computer is capable of running many games as long as you agree to adjustments under graphics-intensive titles to obtain good gameplay.
The GeForce GTX 1650 also has the advantage of speeding up processing under software using GPU computing power, such as Adobe Premiere / Photoshop or Sony Vegas.
The heart of this computer also delivers solid overall performance able to satisfy a maximum of users because it is built around an AMD APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) Ryzen 5 4600H Hexa Core Renoir processor and 8 GB of RAM. . This duo support the GTX 1650 well in games.
And in CPU-intensive areas that take advantage of multicore, such as photo editing, 3D rendering, or video editing, the Ryzen 5 4600H guarantees faster processing than a Quad Core (low power) processor, which will appeal to creatives.
On the storage side, Acer has chosen an SSD that provides much smoother and more responsive operation than a simple hard drive. Thanks to the SSD, we benefit in particular from game / software launches, processing and starts / stops much faster, or even a faster arrival on the cards of online games.
Remember that an SSD is much faster than a hard drive but also more robust, more energy efficient and silent. Here, a 512 GB SSD is integrated, a capacity in phase with the standard of hard drives.
But if you need more space, you can always rely on an external storage drive such as a USB 3.0 device for fast transfers.
As for autonomy, it is above average. Plan on about 8 hours of battery operation in light use. However, it should be borne in mind that this laptop is noisy and heats up when pushed strongly (eg games, treatments).
