Chassis, connectors, screen of the Acer Nitro 5 AN515-55-5692
Cooled by 2 fans including 1 AeroBlade 3D 4th generation as well as heat pipes and air vents, this laptop sports a clearly gamer design with its black case with angular lines and touches of red.
In terms of connectivity, this computer is well equipped with its USB-C, its wireless Bluetooth 5.0 and Wi-Fi ax modules ( more efficient and recent than Wi-Fi ac ) to communicate and connect remotely, its output HDMI video useful for easy connection to a TV or monitor for example, its Ethernet and audio ports but also its 3 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) guaranteeing transfers made up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 devices are plugged into it.
A backlighting system is of course fitted to the chiclet keyboard, which is practical for distinguishing its keys in the event of limited ambient light.
The screen lends itself well to the display of videos and more generally High Definition content because it adopts a 16: 9 format as well as a precise Full HD definition. In addition, thanks to its IPS technology, it has significant viewing angles, both horizontally and vertically. But its colorimetry is average, below that of more high-end IPS panels. In any case, as it is anti-reflective, the screen is also more readable than a shiny panel in a bright environment (eg outdoors).
Performance, battery life of the Acer Nitro 5 AN515-55-5692
The Acer Nitro 5 AN515-55-5692 is a versatile 15-inch performance laptop targeting gamers.
Because it embeds the dedicated GeForce RTX 3060 high-end NVIDIA Ampere graphics card with ray tracing. Clearly, enough to play recent titles.
This GPU is also able to speed up processing under software using GPU computing power, which is the case for example with Sony Vegas or Adobe Photoshop / Premiere, which will be of interest to creatives.
To promote maximum battery life, Optimus favors as much as possible the Intel UHD 630 graphics solution housed within the processor. In this area, bet on about 5 hours on battery in light use.
Just like the GeForce RTX 3060, you can watch photos and videos with the Intel UHD 630. The GeForce RTX 3060 is called upon by Optimus when it comes to performing graphics work deemed too heavy for the Intel UHD 630 .
The Intel UHD 630 is integrated into the Quad Core i5-10300H, Intel Comet Lake-H processor here coupled with 8 GB of RAM for solid overall performance.
This core, which supports the GeForce RTX 3060 well in games, is able to satisfy a maximum of users in terms of overall power, especially since it is supported on a daily basis by the integrated SSD storage.
It is more precisely a 512 GB SSD, a capacity in phase with the standard of hard disks. But compared to the latter, remember that an SSD is silent, less energy-consuming, more robust and much faster.
Result thanks to the SSD, we benefit from games / software launches much faster than with a hard disk as well as start / stop and processing, or even a faster arrival on the cards of online games for example.
Obviously if 512 GB is too tight, we can rely on an external storage unit. Favoring a USB-C / USB 3.0 device then represents an interesting option for obtaining fast transfers.
Finally, it should be kept in mind that this versatile, high-performance gamer-oriented laptop PC is heard and heats up in the event of heavy loads (eg games, processing).
