Acer Aspire 3 (A317-32) review – multimedia desktop replacement
Source: Laptop Media English
While the laptop remains rather cool under heavy load, it is worth saying that the cooling in use is probably the same as one the smaller Aspire 3 (A315-34), which uses a heat spreader, placed directly onto the CPU and a fan that moves the air around the chassis. Apparently, this is not as effective as the completely passive cooling solution, seen on the Aspire 1 (A114-32).

Acer Aspire 3 (A317-51G) review – big and sturdy laptop that’ll do the job
Source: Laptop Media English
Interestingly enough, the cooling performance of the device is ok considering the fact that there is just a single fan for the CPU and the GPU. The temperatures during load are under control and the upper part of the shell remains cool-enough so that means that you can use the device under heavy stress without sensing a big amount of heat beneath your fingers. The fan produces a moderate amount of noise during gaming and its silent when there is a CPU load only.

Do not adjust your screen. Yes, that is the thick end of three-quarters of an inch of bezel all the way around the edges of the new Acer Aspire 3’s 17-inch LCD display. It’s as if the slim-bezel bandwagon sailed straight on by Acer’s latest affordable laptop.

Comment

Acer: The company was founded under the name of Multitech in Taiwan in 1976 and renamed to Acer or Acer Group in 1987. The product range includes, for example, laptops, tablets, smartphones, desktops, monitors and televisions. Gateway Inc. and Packard Bell also belong to the Group and sell their own laptops.

While Acer still had the third largest global market share in the notebook segment in 2008, it ranked 6th in 2016 with a market share of 6% after they had continuously lost market shares.

There are dozens of Acer laptop reviews per month, the ratings are average (as of 2016). Gateway, which has an own laptop line-up, has also belonged to the Acer Group since 2007.


With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution.

NVIDIA GeForce MX250: Successor of the MX150 and still based on the same Pascal GP108 chip (similar to the desktop GT 1030) but with higher clock speeds. Available in two versions, a normal 25 Watt version and a low power version with 10 Watt TDP and reduced performance. The 25 Watt version e.g. offers a 21% higher boost clock than the old MX150 leading to a 5% performance gain.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

Intel UHD Graphics 620: Integrated GPU (GT2, 24 EUs) found on some Kaby-Lake-Refresh CPU models (15 W ULV series). Technically identical to the previous Kaby-Lake GPU called HD Graphics 620.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

Intel UHD Graphics 600: Integrated low-end graphics adapter with DirectX 12 support, which can be found in some ULV SoCs from the Gemini Lake series. Compared to the HD Graphics 500, the 600 offers improved display outputs. Compared to the faster UHD Graphics 605, the 600 offers less shaders at lower clock speeds.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Comet Lake:

i7-10510U: Comet Lake based low power quad-core processor (technically identical to Whiskey Lake and still produced in 14nm++). The CPU cores can clock between 1.8 and 4.9 GHz (all 4 cores 4.3 GHz max.) with HyperThreading (8 threads). The integrated memory controller supports DDR4-2666 and using cTDP up/down the performance can be adjusted by the OEM (10 - 25 Watt possible, 15W default).

i5-10210U: Comet Lake based low power quad-core processor (technically identical to Whiskey Lake and still produced in 14nm++). The CPU cores can clock between 1.6 and 4.2 GHz (all 4 cores 3.9 GHz max.) with HyperThreading (8 threads). The integrated memory controller supports DDR4-2666 and using cTDP up/down the performance can be adjusted by the OEM (10 - 25 Watt possible, 15W default). Compared to the faster i5-10510U, the level 3 cache was reduced from 8 to 6 MB.

i3-10110U: Comet Lake based low power dual-core processor (technically identical to Whiskey Lake and still produced in 14nm++). The CPU cores can clock between 2.1 and 4.1 GHz (all 4 cores 3.7 GHz max.) with HyperThreading (4 threads). The integrated memory controller supports DDR4-2666 and using cTDP up/down the performance can be adjusted by the OEM (10 - 25 Watt possible, 15W default). The integrated graphics card clocks from 300 - 1000 MHz and only offers 23 instead of 24 CUs.

Intel Gemini Lake:

Celeron N4000: Low power dual-core SoC from the Gemini Lake series for inexpensive notebooks. Runs with clocks between 1.1-2.6 GHz and integrates a DirectX 12 capable graphics adapter.
