Chassis, connectors, screen of the Acer Nitro 5 AN517-41-R4DX

This laptop for gamers and creatives sports a resolutely gamer appearance with its black design with angular lines.

It comes with the NitroSense app to regulate the fan speed and temperatures contained by the 2 fans, heat pipes and air outlets.

The connectivity built into this versatile multimedia laptop is good, including Bluetooth 5.1 and Wi-Fi ax wireless modules(newer and more powerful than Wi-Fi ac)to communicate and connect remotely, a useful HDMI video output to easily connect this computer to a TV or monitor for example, Ethernet and audio ports, 1 USB-C or 3 USB 3.0/.2 (USB 2.0 compatible) guaranteeing transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if plugged into USB 3.0 devices.

A backlight system equips of course the chiclet keyboard so that we can better discern its keys in the dim light.

Gamers will appreciate the screen as it enhances fluidity in games by adopting a 144Hz refresh rate higher than the standard 60Hz. Due to its IPS technology, the screen has significant vertical and horizontal viewing angles while reproducing colors more faithfully than average. It also lends itself very well to the display of High Definition content such as videos because of its Full HD definition and its 16/9th format. Treated anti-reflective, the screen also offers better visibility in bright environments (e.g. outside) than a shiny slab while being more restful for the eyes in prolonged use.

Performance, battery life of the Acer Nitro 5 AN517-41-R4DX

The Acer Nitro 5 AN517-41-R4DX may be of interest to those looking for a versatile 17-inch laptop that is powerful in gaming and creating.

It relies on 16 GB of RAM coupled with an AMD APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) Cezanne Octo Core Ryzen 7 5800H processor to deliver good overall power to appeal to demanding users, including gamers and creators.

The latter will be delighted to get much faster processing than with 8 GB of RAM and a Quad/Hexa Core processor. We strongly feel the difference under the ram and CPU intensive work exploiting multi-core, such as video editing, 3D rendering or photo editing.

Creatives will be all the more interested in this PC as it embeds the GeForce RTX 3080. Because this graph accelerates processing under software that takes advantage of GPU computing power, such as Adobe Premiere/Photoshop or Sony Vegas.

However, the GeForce RTX 3080 ray tracing NVIDIA Ampere primarily targets gamers since it represents nothing more and nothing less than one of the most powerful mobile graphics cards of the moment.

As a result, with the GeForce RTX 3080, you can play the latest and most graphics-intensive titles at a good level of detail.

In practice, the GeForce RTX 3080 is automatically enabled/disabled in real time by NVIDIA Optimus technology, depending on the tasks performed.

Optimus favors the Radeon Vega 8 solution integrated into the Octo Core Ryzen 7 Cezanne processor while its performance is very modest in comparison because it is energy efficient and therefore promotes autonomy.
In this regard, bet on about 5 hours of operation on battery in light use.

The GeForce RTX 3080 is concretely activated by Optimus to perform graphics processing too heavy for the Radeon Vega 7. With one or the other, it is obviously possible to look at photos and videos.

The storage is to the end, entrusted to an SSD with a large capacity of 1 TB corresponding to what the vast majority of hard drives offer.

As a bonus compared to the latter, an SSD has several advantages: greater resistance to shocks, lower power consumption, silence of operation or even greater velocity.

As a result, the SSD guarantees a much better responsiveness and fluidity on a daily basis compared to a simple hard disk. Thanks to the SSD, for example, you can reach the cards of online games faster than with a simple hard drive and you get much faster game/software launches, processes and starts/stops.
Good point, a 2.5-inch slot is free as needed to add a second SSD or hard drive.

Finally, because of the powerful and greedy components on board, you should know that this laptop heats up and is heard in case of high demands (eg games, treatments), without however being the noisiest in its category.
