Reviews for the Acer Aspire 5530G

79% Review Acer Aspire 5530G Notebook | Notebookcheck
Crossfire for Everyone. Even if the idea of two graphic cards in one notebook was primarily reserved for high performance bolides, gradually you find models with a dual graphic solution in low priced starting devices. Theoretically, the Crossfire technology from ATI makes it possible to operate two different GPUs parallel to one another. In the following review, you can read of which use the combination of two HD3470 graphic cards are.

80% The Acer Aspire 5530G Reviewed (AMD Puma)
Source: Hardware Zone English
Unfortunately, the performance for the Acer Aspire 5530G isn't quite as good as we would have liked it despite the presence of AMD's new Puma platform. It's probably one of our main grouse that AMD has yet to catch up with Intel since the good ol' days where they stood toe to toe with its competitor. Intel's dominance in the mobile market can be attributed to their marketing success with the Centrino branding though the solid performance of their platform does play a part. AMD has always played it closer to the lower end of the budget spectrum, offering decent performance at a competitive price, and this is continued in the Acer Aspire 5530G. Acer is moreover quite well known for its competitively priced offerings and this Puma based Acer Aspire 5530G is no different.

Comment

ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3470 Hybrid X2: Mobility Radeon HD3470 and chipset mGPU HD 3200 in Crossfire combination.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

AMD Turion X2: The Turion X2 (without 64) is based on the Turion X2 Ultra, but has only 1024 MB L2 Cache and is therefore slower (performance compareable to the old Turion 64 X2). Because of new parts from the K10 architecture, the CPU should be more energy efficient.


RM-70:

Griffin based entry-level dual core processor. The cores are still based on the old K8 architecture (memory controller is newer).

15.4": 15 inch display-variants are the standard and are used for more than the half of all notebooks. 15.4 inch display with 16:10 are the standard for notebook displays. Nowadays, more and more 16:9 displays with 15.6 inch appear. The reason why so many people like displays with medium size is, that this size is not exhausting for the eyes, does not need too much energy and the laptops can be kept quite compact.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


2.96 kg: This weight is average for notebooks. Therefore the numerous mass of laptops with 15 inch display fits in this class of weight.
