Chassis, connectors, monitor Acer Nitro 5 AN515-57-75UC

It has a resolute gamer look with its black design with hints of red and angular lines.
Its cooling is provided by 2 fans including 1 AeroBlade 3D 4th generation, heating pipes and air valves.

This creative gaming laptop offers good connectivity consisting of 2 USB-C, Bluetooth 5.1 wireless modules and Wi-Fi axis (more efficient and newer than Wi-Fi ac) to communicate and remotely connect, Ethernet and audio ports, a convenient HDMI video output to easily connect it to a TV or e.g. a monitor, or even 3 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) that guarantees transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 peripherals are connected to it.

The Chiclet keyboard can be backlit, which is very convenient for better distinguishing its keys in the dark.

To appeal to gamers, the screen is adorned with a refresh rate of 144Hz higher than the standard 60Hz to enhance floating play. With its Full HD definition and 16: 9 format, the screen is also very suitable for viewing High Definition content such as videos. Furthermore, as it is anti-reflective, the screen provides better visibility than a shiny panel in a bright environment (eg outdoors). IPS technology guarantees significant vertical and horizontal viewing angles, but its colorimetry is average, lower than that of high-end IPS panels.

Performance, autonomy for Acer Nitro 5 AN515-57-75UC

The Acer Nitro 5 AN515-57-75UC can appeal to those who want to equip themselves with a versatile 15-inch laptop that is powerful in gaming and creation.

As it integrates the advanced dedicated NVIDIA Ampere GeForce RTX 3070 ray tracing graphics card, this laptop is capable of running the latest and most resource-intensive 3D games at a high level of detail.

In addition, GeForce RTX 3070 accelerates processing under software using GPU computing power, such as Sony Vegas or Adobe Photoshop / Premiere. It will therefore also appeal to creative people.

In practice, the GeForce RTX 3070 is activated / deactivated automatically and in real time by NVIDIA Optimus technology, depending on the tasks performed.

Optimus prefers the Intel Iris Xe solution integrated in the processor as much as possible, although its advantages are very modest in comparison, because it is energy efficient and thus promotes autonomy. The GeForce RTX 3070 is therefore enabled by Optimus to perform graphics processing that is considered too heavy for the Iris Xe. With one or the other, it is of course possible to see pictures and videos.

The Iris Xe is directly integrated into the Octo Core i7-11800H Intel Tiger Lake-H processor. This is coupled with 16 GB of RAM, and we thus achieve a total power that is able to satisfy demanding users, players and creators included.

This core supports GeForce RTX 3070 very well in games and guarantees much faster processing than a Quad / Hexa Core and 8 GB DDR4. In particular, we notice the difference in areas that use CPU and RAM resources by utilizing multicore, such as video editing, photo editing, or 3D rendering.

On the storage side, there is an SSD, which clearly improves responsiveness and fluidity on a daily basis compared to a simple hard drive. It must be said that an SSD is silent while being less energy intensive than a hard drive, more robust and much faster.

Thanks to the SSD, the launch of games / software, processing and start / stop in particular is much faster, and we get on the cards in online games faster.

With its 512 GB, the SSD here offers a capacity in line with what standard hard drives offer. But if it turns out to be too reasonable, you can of course use an external storage device. Favoring a USB-C / USB 3.0 device then represents an interesting opportunity to take advantage of fast transfers.

Finally, this versatile multimedia creator-oriented gamer laptop is heard and warmed up, albeit at controlled levels for this type of computer, in case of severe stress (e.g. games, treatments).

If necessary, a ventilated support can be added to this PC to limit its temperatures (remember to check the goals carefully!).
