Acer Nitro 5 AMD Review, Price, And Benchmark

Is acer nitro 5 good for gaming? – Lets find out

The Nitro 5 AMD does not snatch our budget gaming Editors’ Option from the newly anointed MSI Bravo 15 since a machine with just 256 GB of standard storage is difficult to support, although the Acer’s available M.2 slot and 2.5-inch bay are major advantages as described. Otherwise, however, this is an amazing value, the keyboard is comfortable, the screen is not dazzling but is surely acceptable, and if you turn back the picture settings a little bit, the laptop offers genuine 60fps gaming. It also saves you enough money to purchase the best four or five titles (or rather, four games and a secondary SSD to buy, install yourself, and store them on). It does not get much better than this for financially struggling gamers.

Acer Nitro 5 Processor (CPU) Review

Acer equipped the Nitro 5 AMD with a processor with a 2.4GHz  Ryzen 5 4600H that makes running powerful applications a snap. I penalized my 8GB of RAM with tabs galore after downloading Google Chrome. The machine declined to throttle under pressure, despite 25 web pages with five separate YouTube videos playing concurrently a stunning price-performance ratio is given by AMD’s Ryzen 5 4600H. In a 7 nm lithography process, the Hexa-core CPU is developed and supports up to 12 simultaneous threads thanks to SMT.

Its clock speeds overall were pretty impressive. Although its overall boost of 4.0 GHz was only reached in optimal conditions, an average of 3.7 GHz with a load on all cores is more than respectable. No exception, but more common for a laptop, is the fact that output fell after a few runs. The Ryzen 5 4600H virtually sweeps the floor with its Intel rivals while running our benchmarks. It scored about 20 percent in CineBench R15 multi-thread Relative to the Core i5-9550H, a processor very popular with notebooks in the $1,000 range of the Nitro, it was between 70 and 80 percent faster thanks to its higher core count. Intel would surely take care of this.

 Acer Nitro 5 Memory (RAM) Review

A thorough look at its memory output is next in my Acer Nitro 5 review. I discussed earlier that, apart from testing the processor on a computer, you also need to review its memory output to decide the overall performance of a computer.

I can analyze the overall memory that the device supports to help you decide how fast the RAM in Acer Nitro 5 is. I can also determine when the memory can be expanded-the more memory you load on a machine, the quicker the computer will be.

32 GB of memory is the maximum memory that you can load on your Acer Nitro 5. There are 2 memory slots on the laptop; each slot can accommodate up to 16 GB at most. It is recommended that you load the maximum supported memory to optimize the speed of this laptop. However, you should be comfortable with the standard 8 GB that comes with it if you are not using the laptop for gaming or heavy graphics. Besides, it is necessary to note that you have to uninstall the 8 GB that ships with it by default to load 32 GB of memory. Buy 2 x 16 GB DDR4 SDRAMs then. Leaving the 8 GB that comes with it and buying a second 8 GB of RAM for the second slot could be another alternative. This would give you 16 GB of RAM in total. One thing to remember is that the more RAM you have on the laptop, the easier it will help the processor get things done.

 Acer Nitro 5 Storage Options Review

Acer opted for a PCIe SSD to present the powerful CPU with a worthy storage unit. Sequential transmission speeds north of 1,000 MB/s in both reading and writing might not be the crop’s cream, but may also be more than enough for daily use. A 512 GB wide SK Hynix BC511 SSD was fitted with our review unit. You can either install a second M.2 SSD or use the supplied mounting bracket to add a standard 2.5-inch hard disk drive if you need more storage space.

 Acer Nitro 5 Graphics Card Review

The Nitro 5 comes fitted with a 4GB VRAM GeForce GTX 1650 GPU from Nvidia. The Nitro came in last on a majority of popular gaming benchmarks, despite the initial promising figures. A third of the price of the Nitro is cheaper than other laptops that achieve the same speed. About as much as this laptop, Proper VR charges, so don’t expect a killer experience matching a headset with the nitro 5.

Of course, the Nitro 5 is also big enough to pack a GPU, and uses an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650. That’s the same card as the G3 15, though the Omen 15 uses a more powerful GTX 1660 Ti (and is more expensive because of it).

When I played Control on Nitro 5 for a half-hour, I typically landed between 28 – 35 fps on low settings and 28 – 35 fps on high settings. Because the Nitro 5 uses a GTX GPU, ray tracing wasn’t an option, but aside from a few rare dips below 30 fps during heavy action, the game was plenty playable.

 Acer Nitro 5 KEYBOARD AND TOUCHPAD REVIEW

Keyboard

Any of the more expensive Nitro 5 models offer an RGB-backlit keyboard based on the marketing content on Acer’s website. The AN515-44, though, has to contend with a red backlight under the well-established gaming keyboard of Acer. It provides the combination Insert/Delete key with a well-defined touch and feels as well as a strong overall interface. In additiBesidesman, the keyboard style fused the left Shift key with <>| as well as the Return key with #, which, while odd and frustrating at first, after some getting used to, did not create any problems. The availability of brightness and volume control on the cursor keys, especially for touch typists, was a very helpful function. To cause these features, you will need both hands, however. The dedicated number pad would also support certain people. Many professional IT cv writers UK use Acer laptop keyboards as it gives more flexibility.

Touchpad

The 10.5 x 7.5 cm (4.1 x 3 inches) red-framed touchpad’s footprint is more than sufficient for a 15-inch laptop. Its smooth surface guarantees excellent gliding capability, and its accuracy was at an acceptable standard. Different gestures are enabled, such as pinch through zoom or two-finger scrolling, as planned. The sound it produces is very noisy and clattery when triggering the keys, and it could have used some additional fine-tuning, particularly given that the overall keyboard clatter is rather low.

 Acer Nitro 5 PORTS REVIEW

NITRO 5 AMD

A pair of USB 3.2 Gen 1 ports, a mic/headphone combo jack, and an Ethernet jack sit on the left side, while an HDMI 2.0 port, a USB 3.2 Type-C port, and a USB 3.2 Gen 2 port are located on the right side. The Nitro 5 provides a useful set of ports. The power link is based on the laptop’s rear side. (A word on evolving and misleading USB terminology: USB 3.2 Gen 1 was previously referred to as USB 3.1 Gen 1 and provides speeds of up to 5 Gbps. USB 3.2 Gen 2 was previously referred to as USB 3.1 Gen 2 and supports speeds of up to 10 Gbps.)

 Acer Nitro 5 Display and touch Review

NITRO 5 AMD

In the past, more than 100 Hz monitors were mainly confined to pricey high-end notebooks. Today, with these high-frequency displays, more and more budget gamers are fitted. Acer equips the 15-inch Nitro 5 with a 144 Hz IPS screen running at a native resolution of 1920×1080. The overall image quality is very low. We also found that there was a loss of color-space coverage (61 percent sRGB) and reaction times in addition to a dim backlight (270 nits on average). Its black level of 0.25 nits and the resulting contrast ratio of 1,150:1 were acceptable in return. Acer went against Nvidia’s G-Sync to boost battery life and lower the price and used the Optimus switchable-graphics technology instead.

 Acer Nitro 5 Battery Review

Acer reports that, on a single charge, the Nitro 5 will last up to 7 hours. The Nitro 5 capped out after just 4 hours and 22 minutes during the Laptop Mag battery test (continuous web browsing over Wi-Fi at 150 nits of luminosity). Which beats the average of 3:58 but fails to the superior 4:48 of Asus and 6:53 of Dell’s decimation.

 Acer Nitro 5  Camera

To encourage you to skip passwords with Windows Hello, the Nitro 5 has neither a facial recognition webcam nor a fingerprint reader. A standard laptop economy model that captures soft-focus, noisy shots is the 720p webcam.

Verdict

Acer Nitro 2020 balances budget pricing with a performance at the entry-level. It’s not going to meet the best gaming laptops’ results, but it’s much cheaper compared to equally powerful Intel laptops. An AMD Ryzen 5 Processor, 8GB of memory, and an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 graphics card are featured on this 15.6-inch laptop. It requires you to make a few concessions, as with any budget laptop but delivers an output that compares to or exceeds that of higher-priced budget gaming laptops.

The Nitro 5 AN515-44 is a very appealing and flexible budget computer, disregarding any of the corners Acer had to cut, such as the dim panel with low color-space coverage or the poor networking of the device. It can also be considered very versatile thanks to its long battery life and a comparatively lightweight and compact shell.
