79.2% Acer Aspire 5 A514 Laptop Review: Not Intel Comet Lake at its Best | Notebookcheck
It may be equipped with Intel's latest 10th gen processor, but almost everything else about the laptop feels rather dated. The Aspire 5 is heavier and larger than many other 14-inch alternatives without offering any notable advantages.

50% Acer Aspire 5 Review
Source: Trusted Reviews English
The Acer Aspire 5 is a laptop that lags behind 2020 competitors in a number of areas. The faults of other devices aren’t enough to recommend you pick up this budget laptop over stronger all-round machines.

Acer Aspire 5 (A514-54) review – budget Tiger Lake laptops are coming
Source: Laptop Media English
To be honest, you get what you pay for. The laptop is inexpensive, and the predominantly plastic build is something you should expect. With this, comes the not so great structural integrity, which results in a flexy base and lid. However, we are happy with the way Acer introduced the lifted base. However, despite the higher airflow, we weren’t completely happy with the performance of the Core i5-1135G7. Neither the CPU nor its integrated graphics delivered the performance we expected, and we get about 50% of what the Iris Xe Graphics G7 (96 EU) delivers on the Acer Swift 5 Pro (SF415-55GT). Interestingly, the memory was working in dual-channel mode with there being 4GB integrated on the motherboard and 4GB in the SODIMM slot. And this brings us to the upgradeability. We can consider it to be on point, given the fact that most notebooks these days completely removed the RAM upgrades from the equation. Also, you get one M.2 slot for NVMe drives and a SATA drive bay that comes with its own connector, so kudos to.

Acer Aspire 5 2021 carries on the legacy of the Aspire series. It's a solid offering in its price range given the impressive build quality, performance, and connectivity options. However, the company could have done better in terms of thermal design.

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.


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.

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.

NVIDIA GeForce MX350: Successor of the MX250 and most likely a renamed GeForce GTX 1050 based on the Pascal GP107 chip with 640 shaders and a 64 Bit memory bus for GDDR5.

Intel Iris Xe G7 80EUs: Integrated graphics card in Intel Tiger Lake G7 SoCs based on the new Gen. 12 architecture with 80 EUs (Execution Units / Shader Cluster). The clock rate depends on the processor model. The Tiger Lake chips are produced in the modern 10nm+ process at Intel.

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


Intel Comet Lake:

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 LPDDR4-2933 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.

i7-10510U: Comet Lake based low power quad-core processor (technically identical to Whiskey Lake and still produced on 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).

Intel Ice Lake:

i5-1035G1: Ice Lake-based quad-core processor for thin and light laptops. The CPU has four Sunnycove cores clocked at 1.0 GHz to 3.6 GHz that support Hyperthreading (8 threads). Furthermore, the SoC integrates a Intel UHD Graphics G1 graphics card and Wi-Fi 6 / Thunderbolt support. The chip is manufactured on the first-gen 10 nm Intel process.

Intel Tiger Lake:

i5-1135G7: A quad-core, mid-range processor of Tiger Lake product family designed for use in ultra-light laptops. The i5 is manufactured on Intel's second-gen 10 nm process marketed as SuperFin and features an 80 EU Iris Xe G7 iGPU. Core i5-1135G7 has a base clock speed of 2.4 GHz as long as it is allowed to consume 28 watts.

1.6 kg:

This weight is typical for very big tablets, subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 11-13 inch display-diagonal.

1.7 kg:


75.05%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
