Chassis, Connectors, and Display for Acer Nitro 5 AN515-57-784H
Cooled by two fans including 4th generation AeroBlade 3D, heat pipes and air outlets, this versatile laptop is aimed at gamers and creators, and features a black design with red accents and angular stripes.
The connectivity built into this gaming laptop is good, including 2 USB-C including 1 Thunderbolt 4, a handy HDMI video output to easily connect this computer to a TV or monitor for example, Bluetooth 5.2 wireless modules and a Wi-Fi axe (More efficient and newer than Wi-Fi ac) for remote connectivity, Ethernet and audio ports as well as 3 USB 3.0 ports (compatible with USB 2.0) to ensure transfers 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if you connect USB 3.0 peripherals.
The backlight system, of course, equips the keyboard in the form of a gum, which is practical to better distinguish its keys in the dark.
Gamers will appreciate that the monitor adopts a frequency of 144Hz which improves smoothness in games compared to the standard 60Hz. The screen is also suitable for viewing high-definition content such as videos due to its Full HD definition and its 16:9 format. Thanks to the IPS technology, the screen also has large viewing angles, both vertically and horizontally. Anti-reflective coating, the screen also provides better visibility than a glossy panel in a bright environment (eg outdoors).
The performance and autonomy of the Acer Nitro 5 AN515-57-784H
The Acer Nitro 5 AN515-57-784H is aimed at those looking to invest in a versatile 15-inch laptop that is powerful for gaming and creativity.
The latest graphics-intensive games can be played on this black gaming laptop because it is equipped with an NVIDIA Ampere GeForce RTX 3070 HD graphics card dedicated to ray tracing.
Depending on the tasks being performed, NVIDIA Optimus technology automatically and in real time switches between the GeForce RTX 3070 and the integrated Intel Iris Xe solution.
Optimus makes the most of Iris Xe despite its very modest performance because it consumes little energy and thus enhances autonomy.
In this area, expect about 5 hours of battery operation in light use.
The GeForce RTX 3070 is already enabled by Optimus for graphics processing performance that is too heavy for an Intel Iris Xe. It is of course possible to watch photos and videos but also play the humble titles with one or the other.
It’s Tiger Lake-H Octo Core i7-11800H which houses an Iris Xe processor, Intel linked here with 16GB of RAM to provide total power capable of satisfying demanding users.
Creators will especially appreciate this core that supports GeForce RTX 3070 well in games. Since it offers much faster processing than a quad / hexa-core processor and 8GB of DDR4 memory, the difference is especially noticeable under multi-core work that requires CPU and RAM resources, such as video editing, 3D rendering or photo editing.
Creators will also be happy to have their multimedia processing accelerated by the GeForce RTX 3070 within programs that take advantage of GPU computing power, such as Adobe Premiere / Photoshop or Sony Vegas.
The storage is ready to be scratched and will suit both gamers and creators as it is trusted to a large 1TB SSD that rivals what the vast majority of hard drives in the industry offer.

In this topic, let’s highlight the advantages that an SSD offers over a hard disk: greater shock resistance, silent operation, lower power consumption, and faster speed.
In concrete terms, thanks to the SSD, for example, we can access online game cards faster and get faster game / program operations, processing and start / stop.
Finally, keep in mind that when used extensively (such as games and treatments), this versatile laptop geared to the multimedia creator heats up and audible, but at levels that are mastered for this type of PC.
To contain temperatures, a well-ventilated brace may be used if necessary (Remember to check the dimensions carefully!).
