Focused on players and creators, the lightweight Acer Nitro 5 AN517-52-76RL is a new high-performance versatile laptop with a 17-inch IPS Full HD anti-reflective screen with a frequency of 120Hz to enhance fluidity in games. Powerful thanks to its Hexa Core i7 Comet Lake-H processor and its good amount of RAM which accelerates processing like the NVIDIA Turing GeForce GTX 1650 Ti on-board graphics card, it can run very many. Thanks to its fast SSD storage with a large capacity of 1 TB, this computer sees its reactivity further improved and also benefits from a backlit chiclet keyboard as well as Wi-Fi ax and USB 3.1 Type-C connectivity.

Chassis, connectors, screen of Acer Nitro 5 AN517-52-76RL
It is a resolutely gamer design that this computer sports with its chassis with angular lines, black brushed metal finish and touches of red. It is light for a 17 inch, much more than the previous generation (AN517-51, 3 Kg).
CoolBoost technology takes care of cooling it using 2 fans associated with heat pipes and ventilation grilles, the NitroSense application allowing you to control the temperature and speed of the fans.
This computer oriented gamer and creators is well provided in terms of connectivity with its Bluetooth 5 wireless modules and Wi-Fi ax ( newer and more efficient than Wi-Fi ac ) to communicate and connect remotely, its HDMI video output practical for easily connecting it to a TV or a monitor for example, its Ethernet and audio ports, its USB 3.1 Type-C or its 3 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) guaranteeing transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 devices are connected to it.
Of course, you can backlight the chiclet keyboard keys to better distinguish them in dim light.
The screen is well suited for displaying videos and more generally High Definition content thanks to its 16: 9 format and precise Full HD definition. As it adopts IPS technology, the screen has large horizontal and vertical viewing angles and reproduces colors more faithfully than average. Anti-reflective, the screen also offers better visibility than a shiny panel in a bright environment (eg outside).
Gamers will be particularly interested in the fact that the screen frequency is higher than average, at 120Hz instead of 60Hz, which improves fluidity in games.
Performances, autonomy of Acer Nitro 5 AN517-52-76RL
The Acer Nitro 5 AN517-52-76RL is for those who are looking for a 17-inch versatile laptop with high performance and relatively, game and creation oriented.
It is equipped with the dedicated GeForce GTX 1650 Ti NVIDIA Turing card. It is capable of running a large number of games as long as one consents to settings under the titles that consume the most graphical resources to obtain good playability.
In addition, the GeForce GTX 1650 Ti accelerates processing under software exploiting GPU computing power, for example under Sony Vegas or Adobe Photoshop / Premiere.
NVIDIA Optimus onboard technology switches between the GeForce GTX 1650 Ti and the Intel UHD 630 solution integrated into the processor, automatically depending on the tasks performed. Despite its very modest performance, the Intel UHD 630 is favored as much as possible by Optimus because it is energy efficient and therefore implies better autonomy. On this subject, count on approximately 6 hours of operation on battery in light use.
The GeForce GTX 1650 Ti is therefore activated to carry out graphic work deemed too heavy for the UHD 630. Obviously, with one and the other of these graphic parts, you can watch photos and videos.
Thanks to the on-board SSD storage, multimedia processing as well as start / stop and launch of games / software are much faster than if we were dealing with a simple hard drive. More generally, the SSD brings a better fluidity and reactivity.
It must be said that an SSD is much faster than a hard drive while being more robust, more energy efficient and silent. In addition here, we find integrated an SSD with a large capacity of 1 TB easily competing with hard drives.
The core of this computer is up to the task. Composed of a good amount of 16 GB RAM and a Hexa Core i7-10750H Comet Lake-H processor, it delivers a global power capable of satisfying demanding users.
This duo guarantees, for example, much faster processing than 8 GB DDR4 and a Quad Core processor, particularly in demanding work in RAM and CPU resources taking advantage of multicores, such as 3D rendering, video editing or photo editing, which will interest creative.
Note that currently, the contribution of Hexa Core in games varies compared to Quad Core.
Finally, this computer benefits from a fairly light weight for a 17 inch (all the more so powerful). Its large format is comfortable, particularly in the context of sedentary use (eg at home).
Also keep in mind that this PC makes itself heard and heats up in the event of strong requests (ex: games, treatments).
