Gaming laptop multimedia creator, the Acer Aspire 7 A715-51G-79U7 thin and light 15-inch Full HD IPS anti-glare screen whose frequency of 165Hz improves fluidity in games is able to run many games with its GeForce RTX 3050 Ti graphics card. It also accelerates processing like the 16 GB of RAM and the Intel Core i7-1260P Alder Lake-P processor powerful in common use. This discreet black aluminum Ultrabook that runs on Windows 11 benefits from an SSD with a large capacity of 1 TB that enhances its responsiveness, a backlit keyboard, a fingerprint reader or a USB-C Thunderbolt 4 and Wi-Fi 6E connectivity.

Chassis, connectors, screen of the Acer Aspire 7 A715-51G-79U7
It sports a discreet look with its thin and light black aluminum design that rises slightly forward when opened.
Its cooling is provided by 2 fans coupled to 3 heat pipes and ventilation grilles.
This versatile Ultrabook is well equipped with good connectivity with its very fast USB-C Thunderbolt 4, its wireless modules Bluetooth 5.2 and Wi-Fi 6E ax (newer and more powerful than Wi-Fi ac) to communicate and connect remotely, its Ethernet and audio ports 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 plugged into it.
Biometric recognition can be authenticated via the built-in fingerprint reader using Windows Hello technology.
The chiclet keyboard can be backlit of course which is convenient to better discern them in the dim light.
To seduce players, the screen is adorned with a frequency of 165Hz higher than the standard 60Hz which improves fluidity in games. In addition, with its IPS technology, the screen has significant viewing angles, both horizontal and vertical, while reproducing colors more faithfully than average. Due to its Full HD definition and its 16/9th format, the screen also lends itself very well to the display of High Definition content such as videos. As it is anti-reflective, the screen also offers better visibility than a shiny slab in bright environments (e.g. outdoors).
BlueLightShield technology makes sure to attenuate up to 30% of the blue light that the screen emits.
Performance, battery life of the Acer Aspire 7 A715-51G-79U7
The Acer Aspire 7 A715-51G-79U7 targets those who want to acquire a thin and light laptop oriented creation and gaming.
It is able to run many games if you agree to settings under the opus greedy in 3D resources to obtain a good gameplay. Because it embeds the dedicated graphics card GeForce RTX 3050 Ti ray tracing NVIDIA Ampere.
As a bonus, the GeForce RTX 3050 Ti accelerates processing under software exploiting the power of GPU calculations, such as Sony Vegas or Adobe Premiere/Photoshop, which is of interest to creators.
In practice, the GeForce RTX 3050 Ti is automatically enabled/disabled in real time by NVIDIA Optimus technology, depending on the tasks performed.
Optimus prefers it as much as possible the Intel Iris Xe, graphics module integrated into the processor, and this despite its much more modest benefits because it is energy-efficient which promotes autonomy.
In this area while waiting for more complete tests, expect about 5 hours of battery operation in light use.
The GeForce RTX 3050 Ti is actually enabled by Optimus to do graphics work deemed too heavy for the Iris Xe, typically for gaming. Of course with either of these solutions, it is possible to look at photos and videos.
The Iris Xe is directly integrated into the low-power Intel Alder Lake-P Core i7-1260P processor with a TDP of 28W higher than the conventional 15W. The performance is therefore better but the energy consumption higher.
The Core i7-1260P delivers good overall performance to satisfy many users associated with 16 GB of RAM, enough to satisfy many users.
And especially creators intending to achieve modest multimedia processing taking advantage of multi-core – and therefore the 12 hybrid cores of Alder Lake – as well as RAM, such as photo editing or video encoding.
On the storage side, there is an SSD with a large capacity of 1 TB able to accommodate multiple software and files, which corresponds to what hard drives offer in their vast majority.
In addition to the latter, an SSD is quiet, more energy efficient, more shock-resistant and much faster.
As a result, the SSD guarantees a much better fluidity and responsiveness to use than a simple hard disk, which implies for example much faster processing as well as game / software launches and starts / stops, or a faster arrival on the cards of online games.
Quite easy to carry because of its finesse and its controlled weight, this versatile Ultrabook oriented game and creation is heard and heats up in case of strong solicitations.
