Reviews for the Acer Aspire 5740G-5309

80% Acer Aspire AS5740G-5309 15.6-inch Thin And Light Laptop PC
Source: Comp Reviews English
Acer's Aspire 5740G-5309 is an amazing value for those wanting to get a thin and light laptop system with a dedicated graphics processor for light PC gaming and HD video watching. The Core i3-330M may be a low end processor among the new Core i series mobile processors, but its performance is clearly a marked improvement over the majority of the older Core 2 mobile processors.

Comment

ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5470: Entry level DirectX 11 chip with GDDR5 support but only 80 shader cores. Supports Eyefinity (up to 4 monitors) and 8-ch HD audio over HDMI. Performance on par with the old GeForce 8600M GT.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

330M:

The Core i3-330M is a slower clocked 350M and therefore also lacks the Turbo Boost feature and clocks with max. 2.13 GHz. Thanks to Hyperthreading, 4 threads can be processed simultaneously. An integrated graphics card (GMA HD 3150) and a DDR3 memory controller are also included in the package.
