Chassis, connectors, screen of Acer Nitro 5 AN515-54-59TP
Its chassis with angular lines with a black brushed metal finish and touches of red gives it a resolutely gamer design.
It is cooled by CoolBoost technology which combines 2 fans with heat pipes. The NitroSense app allows you to control the temperature and speed of the fans.
This multimedia gaming computer is well equipped in terms of connectivity with its Bluetooth 5 wireless modules and Wi-Fi ac to communicate and connect remotely, its practical HDMI video output in order to connect it to a TV or a monitor for example, its Ethernet and audio ports, its USB 3.1 Type-C or its 3 USB all compatible with both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, USB 3.0 ensuring transfers taking place up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 devices are plugged into it.
A backlighting system equips the chiclet keyboard keys which is practical to better distinguish them in dim light.
The screen will appeal to many users and in particular fans of multimedia content such as videos with its precise Full HD definition suitable for High Definition and its 16: 9 format. In addition the screen is IPS. Therefore, its viewing angles both horizontal and vertical are important while its colorimetry is more faithful than the average. Anti-reflective, the screen also offers better visibility than a shiny panel in a bright environment (eg outside).
Performances, autonomy of Acer Nitro 5 AN515-54-59TP
The Acer Nitro 5 AN515-54-59TP is for those looking for a high-performance 15-inch versatile laptop, especially in games, multimedia-oriented and offering good autonomy.
Nomads who wish to be able to use this PC all day long away from a light socket outlet will be delighted with the autonomy of around 7 hours that it offers under these conditions. This is a real asset for such an efficient machine.
With its Quad Core i5-9300H Coffee Lake Refresh processor and its 8 GB of RAM, this computer indeed delivers solid general performance able to satisfy a maximum of users.
Creatives will be delighted, for example, to obtain faster processing than with a low-consumption Quad Core processor, particularly in areas that consume CPU resources taking advantage of multicore. And even more so if they use software exploiting the computing power of the GPU (ex: Sony Vega, Adobe Photoshop and Premiere).
The heart of this computer, built around an Intel HM370 chipset, also supports the dedicated GeForce GTX 1650 NVIDIA Turing on-board card very well. Thanks to this GPU, you can run a maximum of games with adaptations under the most demanding opus in graphics resources.
In practice, NVIDIA Optimus on-board technology solicits the GeForce GTX 1650 automatically and in real time only when the modest benefits of the Intel UHD 630 solution integrated into the Quad Core i5 prove insufficient to perform the requested tasks. The Intel UHD 630 is indeed privileged to the maximum because its low energy consumption promotes autonomy. Obviously whether it is with the GeForce GTX 1650 or the Intel UHD 630, no problem to watch photos and videos.
Creatives and more generally those who wish to benefit from a large storage space, for example to store their creations and more generally heavy multimedia content (ex: videos) will be delighted to find embedded hybrid storage.
It consists of a 128 GB SSD thought to accommodate the OS as well as the main games / software, and a hard drive with a consequent capacity of 1000 GB to accommodate the rest.
Thanks to the SSD, the responsiveness and fluidity of this PC is much better than if it were equipped with a simple hard drive. We thus benefit in particular from much faster starts / stops and launches of games / applications and we can arrive faster on online game cards.
Finally, keep in mind that when it is heavily used (eg games, heavy treatments), this PC is heard and heats up. However, this remains under control for this type of PC.
