The Acer Aspire 5740G is a refreshed model in Acer's 2010 Aspire series line up. Earlier versions of the Aspire have been decent performers with a Value for Money (VFM) proposition. This year it receives an update with Intel's Core i3 330M 2.13 GHz processor and the new generation ATI Radeon HD 5470 graphics chip. The rest of the design and components are the same. So will Acer continue to reign in the paisa vasool desktop replacement segment? Or should people expect more than just a CPU/Graphics update.

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