Chassis, connectors, screen of the Acer Nitro 5 AN515-57-58RF
Cooled by 2 fans including 1 AeroBlade 3D 4th generation, heat pipes and air vents, this versatile laptop has a clearly gamer look thanks to its black chassis with angular lines and touches of red.
This gaming and creator-oriented laptop is well equipped in terms of connectivity with its USB-C, its Wi-Fi ax wireless modules (more powerful and recent than Wi-Fi ac) and Bluetooth 5.1 for remote connections and communications, its Ethernet and audio ports, its useful HDMI video output to easily connect it to a TV or monitor for example as well as its 3 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) guaranteeing transfers made up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if you plug in USB 3.0 devices.
You can backlight the keys of the chiclet keyboard which is very convenient so that you can better distinguish its keys when its ambient light is reduced.
The screen is well suited to videos and more generally to High Definition content because it adopts a 16/9th format coupled with a Full HD definition. In addition, it will interest players because it is adorned with a frequency of 144Hz which improves fluidity in games compared to the standard 60Hz. Thanks to its IPS technology, the screen also has significant vertical and horizontal viewing angles, but its colorimetry is classic, lower than that of high-end IPS panels. Treated anti-reflective, the screen is also more readable than a shiny slab in bright environments (ex: exterior).
Performance, battery life of the Acer Nitro 5 AN515-57-58RF
The Acer Nitro 5 AN515-57-58RF is a versatile 15-inch high-performance laptop focused on creation and gaming.
Many users will be satisfied with the overall performance delivered by this laptop designed to play and create because it is built around an Intel Hexa Core i5-11400H Tiger Lake-H processor and 8 GB of RAM.
The Hexa Core i5-11400H Tiger Lake-H ensures faster processing than a Quad Core, which is particularly sensitive in CPU-intensive areas using multi-core, such as photo editing, editing or video conversion.
Creators will be all the more interested as the GeForce GTX 1650 dedicated graphics card is able to speed up processing under software that takes advantage of GPU computing power, such as Sony Vegas or Adobe Photoshop.
Thanks to the GeForce GTX 1650 NVIDIA Turing, gamers can also indulge in a lot of titles for concessions under the opus demanding graphics resources to get a good gameplay.
The GeForce GTX 1650 is automatically turned on/off in real time by NVIDIA Optimus technology, as needed. Because Optimus actually favors the Intel Iris Xe, a less powerful graphics solution housed in the Hexa Core i5 because its low power consumption promotes autonomy.
Optimus therefore solicits the GeForce GTX 1650 to perform graphics work deemed too heavy for the Iris Xe. With one or another, let’s mention that we can of course look at photos and videos but also play modest titles.
The storage is entrusted to a 512 GB SSD, a capacity similar to what hard drives offer as standard. But an SSD offers several advantages: greater robustness, silence of operation, lower energy consumption or even greater velocity.
As a result, thanks to the SSD, the starts/stops, processing and launches of software/games are much faster for example and we reach the cards of online games faster. In general, the SSD guarantees a much better fluidity and responsiveness on a daily basis than a simple hard disk.
Of course in the event that 512 GB is too fair, we can use an external storage unit such as a USB 3.0 / USB-C device to enjoy fast transfers.
As for the autonomy, count on about 5 hours of operation on battery in light use for this versatile laptop oriented creation and game that is heard and heats up in case of strong demands (eg treatments, games), however at mastery levels for this type of computer.
