Targeting gamers, the versatile Acer Nitro 5 AN515-54-76WR laptop can run recent games and speed up processing thanks to its GeForce RTX 2060 NVIDIA Turing graphics card with ray tracing. Equipped with a 15-inch IPS Full HD anti-glare screen with a frequency of 120Hz which improves fluidity in games, it performs well even in processing thanks to its Coffee Lake Refresh Hexa Core i7 processor and its good amount of RAM. In addition, this computer benefits from an SSD storage with a large capacity of 1 TB which enhances its responsiveness. Also on the program of this black PC with controlled weight, a backlit chiclet keyboard as well as a Wi-Fi ax and USB 3.1 Type-C connection, all for a battery life of 7 hours.

Chassis, connectors, screen of Acer Nitro 5 AN515-54-76WR
It sports a clearly gamer design by adopting the codes of the genre with its black brushed metal finish chassis with angular lines and touches of red.
Its cooling is provided by CoolBoost technology using 2 fans with heat pipes. The NitroSense application allows it to control the temperature and the speed of the fans.
The connectivity built into this computer is good, made up of 1 USB 3.1 Type-C, Bluetooth 5 wireless modules and Wi-Fi ax ( more recent and efficient than Wi-Fi ac ) to communicate and connect remotely , a practical HDMI video output to easily connect this PC to a TV or a monitor for example, Ethernet and audio ports as well as 3 USBs all compatible with both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, the USB 3.0 guaranteeing s \’performing up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 when plugged in USB 3.0 devices.
A backlighting system is of course fitted to the chiclet keyboard, which is very practical for discerning its keys in the dark.
As the screen is adorned with a frequency of 120Hz, fluidity is enhanced in games compared to the 60Hz standard. The screen also has vertical and horizontal viewing angles thanks to its IPS technology, however inferior to that of more high-end IPS panels because its colorimetry is average. Due to its precise Full HD definition and its 16: 9 format, the screen is in any case very suitable for displaying High Definition content such as videos. Anti-reflective coating, the screen also offers better visibility in a bright environment (eg outdoors) than a shiny panel.
Performance, battery life of Acer Nitro 5 AN515-54-76WR
The Acer Nitro 5 AN515-54-76WR can appeal to those who are looking for a versatile 15-inch laptop PC oriented games and creation while offering an interesting autonomy.
In fact, expect around 7 hours of battery operation in light use for this PC, whose overall power is able to satisfy demanding users, whether they are gamers or creators.
In fact, a good amount of RAM 16 GB above the average is integrated as well as a Hexa Core i7-9750H Coffee Lake Refresh processor, and this around an Intel HM370 chipset.
Certainly in the games currently, the contribution of the Hexa Core is variable compared to the Quad Core.
But thanks to this duo, we notably obtain much faster processing than with 8 GB DDR4 and a Quad Core processor in work requiring RAM and CPU resources using multicore, such as photo editing, video editing or 3D rendering.
Gamers will be delighted to be able to run their favorite games with this PC because it takes advantage of the dedicated NVIDIA Turing GeForce RTX 2060 graphics card with ray tracing.
This also has the advantage of speeding up processing under software that takes advantage of GPU computing power, such as Adobe Photoshop / Premiere or Sony Vegas.
In practice, the GeForce RTX 2060 is activated / deactivated automatically and in real time by NVIDIA Optimus technology, depending on the tasks performed.
Optimus gives maximum preference to the Intel UHD 630 solution integrated into the processor despite its very modest features because it is energy efficient and therefore promotes autonomy. The GeForce RTX 2060 is therefore activated by Optimus to perform graphics processing that is too heavy for the Intel UHD 630, both obviously allowing you to watch photos and videos.
Storage is up to par. It is entrusted to a comfortable SSD with a large capacity of 1000 GB that rivals hard drives in this area. But compared to the latter, remember that an SSD consumes less energy, is more resistant to shocks, is silent and much faster.
Concretely thanks to the SSD, we reach faster on the cards of online games than with a hard drive for example. We also take advantage of much faster game / software launches, processing and starts / stops.
In addition, as a 2.5 inch slot is free, you can add a second SSD or a hard drive to this PC if necessary.
Finally, this laptop is heard and heats up in the event of heavy loads (eg games, heavy processing), but this remains under control for this type of PC.
