Chassis, connectors, screen of the Acer Nitro 5 AN515-58-72MJ
It sports a relatively elegant gamer appearance with its black design with angular lines.
The connectivity integrated into this creator-oriented gaming laptop is good, including 1 USB-C, Bluetooth 5.2 wireless modules and Wi-Fi ax (newer and more powerful than Wi-Fi ac) to communicate and connect remotely, a convenient HDMI video output to easily connect this computer to a TV or monitor for example, Ethernet and audio ports as well as 3 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) ensuring transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 devices are connected to them.
You can backlight the keys of the chiclet keyboard of course which is convenient to better distinguish them in low light atmosphere.
The screen lends itself well to the display of videos and more broadly High Definition content with its 16/9th format and its precise Full HD definition. In addition, it will interest gamers as it enhances fluidity in games thanks to its 144Hz refresh rate higher than the standard 60Hz. Thanks to its IPS technology, the screen also has significant viewing angles, both horizontal and vertical. Treated anti-reflective, the screen also offers better visibility in bright environments (e.g. outside) than a shiny slab.
Performance, battery life of the Acer Nitro 5 AN515-58-72MJ
The Acer Nitro 5 AN515-58-72MJ is for those looking for a versatile 15-inch laptop that performs well in gaming and creation.
The most recent games can run on this creator-oriented gaming laptop because it embeds the GeForce RTX 3060 ray tracing, dedicated nvidia ampere graphics card.
In addition, the GeForce RTX 3060 accelerates processing under software that takes advantage of GPU computing power, such as Adobe Photoshop/Premiere and Sony Vegas, which will interest creatives.
NVIDIA Optimus technology actually switches automatically and in real time between the GeForce RTX 3060 and the Iris Xe graphics solution built into the processor. The Iris Xe is preferred to the maximum by Optimus to offer the best possible autonomy because it consumes little energy.
In this regard, while waiting for more complete tests, count on about 5 hours of operation on battery in light use. In any case of course when it comes to often performing work too heavy for the Iris Xe, Optimus activates the more powerful GeForce RTX 3060
The Iris Xe takes place in the Core i7-12700H, Intel Alder Lake-H processor equipped with 14 hybrid cores that delivers an overall power able to seduce demanding users, especially since it is coupled with 16 GB of RAM.
This core fully reveals its potential under cpu- and RAM-intensive work exploiting multi-core – and from this fiat the 14 hybrid cores of the Alder. This is particularly the case in photo editing, video editing or 3D rendering.
On the storage side, there is an SSD that clearly reinforces responsiveness and fluidity on a daily basis compared to a simple hard disk. It must be said that an SSD is silent, more resistant to shocks, less energy consuming and much faster than a hard drive. Here we find a 512 GB SSD, similar to that offered by hard drives as standard. However, if you need more space, you can rely on an external storage unit such as a USB-C/USB 3.0 device to benefit from fast transfers.
In any case in practice thanks to the SSD, we reach for example faster on the cards of online games and we obtain launches of games / software, processing and starts / stops much faster than with a simple hard disk.
Finally, expect that in case of high demands (eg games, treatments), expect this versatile gaming laptop oriented creator to be heard and heated.
