Chassis, connectors, screen of the Acer Nitro 5 AN515-45-R3M9
With its black design with angular lines, this versatile multimedia laptop sports a gamer look. Its cooling is entrusted to 2 fans, heat pipes and 4 ventilation grids.
The connectivity built into this laptop designed to play and create is good, including 1 USB-C, Bluetooth 5.0 and Wi-Fi ax modules(more powerful and recent than Wi-Fi ac)to communicate and connect remotely wirelessly, a useful HDMI video output to easily connect this PC to a TV or monitor for example, Ethernet and audio ports without forgetting 3 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) guaranteeing transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if you connect USB 3.0 devices.
The chiclet keyboard is of course adorned with a solution for backlighting the keys so that they can be better discerned in the dim light.
The screen adopts a refresh rate of 144Hz higher than 60Hz which has the effect of improving fluidity in games. It also lends itself very well to the display of High Definition content such as videos because it adopts a Full HD definition associated with a 16/9th format. Treated anti-reflective, the screen also offers better visibility in bright environments (e.g. outside) than a shiny slab. In addition, thanks to its IPS technology, the screen has significant viewing angles, both horizontal and vertical.
Performance, battery life of the Acer Nitro 5 AN515-45-R3M9
The Acer Nitro 5 AN515-45-R3M9 targets those on a large budget and want to invest in a versatile 15-inch laptop that is powerful in gaming and creating.
It is able to run the latest and most graphics-intensive games at a good level of detail because it features one of the most powerful high-end mobile graphics cards of the moment, the GeForce RTX 3080 ray tracing NVIDIA Ampere.
In practice, the GeForce RTX 3080 is automatically enabled/disabled in real time by NVIDIA Optimus technology, depending on the tasks performed.
Optimus prefers it as much as possible the Radeon Vega 8, graphics solution housed within the processor because it is energy efficient which promotes autonomy. In this regard, count on about 5 hours of operation on battery in light use.
Optimus actually activates the GeForce RTX 3080 to perform graphics work deemed too heavy for the Radeon Vega 8, typically for gaming.
In any case, whether with the GeForce RTX 3080 or the Radeon Vega 8, you can obviously watch photos and videos.
The GeForce RTX 3080 will also be of interest to creatives because it accelerates multimedia processing under software that exploits GPU computing power, such as Adobe Premiere/Photoshop or Sony Vegas.
The AMD Ryzen 7 5800HAPU (Accelerated Processing Unit) Cezanne Octo Core processor welcomes the Radeon Vega 8. It is here associated with 16 GB of RAM and thus delivers an overall power that demanding users will appreciate, including gamers and creators.
It must be said that this core supports the GeForce RTX 3080 in games and guarantees much faster processing than a Quad / Hexa Core processor and 8 GB DDR4. The difference is particularly strong under CPU and RAM intensive work taking advantage of multi-core, such as video editing, 3D rendering or photo editing.
On the storage side, Acer makes the wise choice of a 1 TB SSD, capacity rivaling what hard drives offer the vast majority of the time.
As a bonus, an SSD has several advantages over a hard drive: greater velocity, lower power consumption, silence of operation or even greater shock resistance.
Concretely, the SSD clearly reinforces the responsiveness and fluidity on a daily basis compared to a simple hard disk. Thanks to the SSD, we benefit for example from much faster game/software launches as well as processing and starts/stops, or a faster arrival on the cards of online games.
Finally, if this creator-oriented multimedia gaming laptop heats up and is heard when it is strongly pushed (eg games, treatments), it remains at controlled levels.
