Chassis, connectors, screen of the Acer Nitro 5 AN517-41-R484

It sports a clearly gamer design with its black frame with angular lines and touches of red.

CoolBoost technology takes care of cooling it by relying on 2 fans, heat pipes and ventilation grilles. The NitroSense app allows you to regulate fan speeds and temperatures.

In terms of connectivity, this versatile laptop PC oriented game and creation is well equipped with its USB-C, its wireless Bluetooth 5.1 modules and Wi-Fi ax ( more recent and efficient than Wi-Fi ac ) to communicate and connect remotely, its practical HDMI video output for easy connection to a TV or monitor for example, its Ethernet and audio ports as well as its 3 USB 3.0 / .2 (USB 2.0 compatible) guaranteeing transfers up to 10 times more faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 devices are plugged into it.

A backlighting system is fitted to the chiclet keyboard, which is practical for better distinguishing its keys in a dimly lit environment.

The fluidity in games is enhanced by the screen as it adopts a refresh rate of 144Hz higher than the standard 60Hz. The screen is also well suited to High Definition content such as videos with its precise Full HD definition and 16: 9 format. Anti-reflective coating, it also offers better visibility in a bright environment (eg outdoors) than a shiny panel while being more restful for the eyes in prolonged use. In addition, thanks to its IPS technology, the screen has large viewing angles, both horizontally and vertically, and displays colors more faithful than the average.

Performance, battery life of the Acer Nitro 5 AN517-41-R484

The Acer Nitro 5 AN517-41-R484 can appeal to those who are looking for a versatile 17-inch laptop PC performance oriented game and creation.

Recent games can run on this computer because it embeds the dedicated NVIDIA Ampere high-end GeForce RTX 3060 graphics card with ray tracing.

Integrated NVIDIA Optimus technology assesses graphics needs in real time based on tasks performed. It favors as much as possible operation on the Radeon Vega 7 solution integrated into the AMD processor despite its more modest features because its low energy consumption promotes battery life.

Optimus activates the GeForce RTX 3060 to perform graphics processing deemed too heavy for the Vega 7, for example for gaming. With one or the other, you can obviously watch photos and videos

As a bonus, the GeForce RTX 3060 speeds up processing under software that takes advantage of GPU computing power, such as Sony Vegas or Adobe Photoshop / Premiere, which will appeal to creative people.

As an AMD APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) Cezanne Hexa Core Ryzen 5 5600H processor is integrated, creators will also appreciate that their processing is faster than with a Quad Core processor, especially under CPU intensive jobs using multicore, this which is for example the case in video editing, photo editing or 3D rendering.

In games however currently, it should be noted that the contribution of the 6 cores of the Hexa Core is variable compared to the 4 cores of a Quad Core.

The fact remains that coupled with 8 GB of RAM, the Ryzen 5 Hexa Core Cezanne supports the GeForce RTX 3060 well in games and delivers solid overall performance that can suit a large number of users.

On the storage side, there is an SSD which clearly reinforces the fluidity and responsiveness on a daily basis compared to a simple hard drive. Thanks to the SSD, for example, we reach faster on-line game cards and we benefit from much faster game / software launches, processing and starts / stops.

Recall in this regard that an SSD is much faster than a hard drive while being more energy efficient, more shock resistant and silent.

However, here we find a 512 GB SSD, a capacity similar to what hard disks offer as standard. But if you need more space, you can add a second SSD or a hard drive via the free 2.5-inch slot.
And we can always help with an external storage unit. Opting for a USB-C / USB 3.0 device then represents an interesting solution to obtain fast transfers.

Finally in terms of battery life, expect about 6 hours of battery operation in light use for this designer-oriented gaming laptop which is not the most easily transportable because of its weight and its large format, it being however particularly comfortable for mainly sedentary use (eg at home).
In addition, expect this computer to be heard and to heat up under heavy loads (eg games, processing).
