Acer ConceptD 5

The Acer ConceptD 5 15" RX Vega is a laptop with high-end performance hardware. It was designed as a mobile design station. Designed and tested specifically for creative workflows, NVIDIA GeForce / Quadro RTX™ Studio laptops can help design studios work faster. The sculptured aluminium chassis demonstrates a timeless design that is ideal for creators who need to work in various fashionable locations. There is also an attractive backlit amber keyboard designed for working in low light conditions. For creators and designers, colour accuracy is critical for design. The ConceptD 5 will do well in this area with its 4K UHD PANTONE Validated display. Users can get more space to work on thanks to the 15” or 17” display and ensure faithful colour reproduction with a 100% Adobe RGB colour gamut and a colour accuracy of Delta E <2. The Adobe RGB gamut covers a wider range of colours than an sRGB gamut. Users can easily edit images and complete the trickiest 2D graphic design projects in no time with the processing power of a 9th Gen Intel Core i7 processor and AMD Radeon RX Vega M GL dedicated memory. Aside from that, users can achieve more with 16 GB of DDR4 memory, a 512GB responsive NVMe PCIe SSD in Raid 0 and up to a 2TB HDD.

A quiet environment is vital when focusing on an important piece of design. Users can work in peace with the optimized thermal system with a 4th Gen Aeroblade 3D Fan, which runs at under 40dBA. The ConceptD 5 will not disturb others even when the CPU is running at full capacity to complete a complex piece of work. To meet the demands of engineers, architects, videographers, cinematographers, 3D animators, AI professionals and many more, a hardware solution that has been tested and certified by Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) is demanded. ConceptD products, in specific model configurations, offer ISV certified hardware in combination with the most recent technologies. For connectivity, users can accomplish more with a full range of ports, including a USB Type-C Gen 1 supporting up to 5 Gbps data transfers, and charge offline with one of the USB 3.1 ports. They can also get online faster with Killer Wi-Fi 6 AX1650 (Gig+ Wi-Fi). In conclusion, the Acer ConceptD 5 15" RX Vega is a laptop designed for professionals who require a powerful device to work on the go. It has great graphics specifications to help creators and designers accomplish great stuff.

Acer ConceptD 5 (CN515-51) review – great screen in a pretty body, but is it good enough?
Source: Laptop Media English
As the ConceptD 5 (CN515-51) is the least expensive ConceptD laptop, it excels in the display department. In fact, it has one of the nicest panels found on a laptop. Well, if you are not a gamer of course. What is more important for content creators and Web designers is the color accuracy, and the overall ability to display color, which this laptop does at a great level – it covers 100% of sRGB and 100% of Adobe RGB. Additionally, we have found that the embedded Adobe RGB preset from Acer outputs the most accurate image with a dE below 2.0.

Acer ConceptD 5 initial review: A-grade ideas?
Source: Pocket Lint English
As we said up top, the Acer ConceptD 5 is a great idea. Maybe having the word 'concept' in the name was a mistake, though, as this laptop indeed feels like a working idea rather than one that delivers in every regard.

Source: Ultrabook Review English
It's early to draw conclusions on the ConceptD 5 Pro without exact details on pricing and a bigger picture of this mid-range workstation market that's developing right now, but this notebook seems to have what it needs to be a worthy option in its class. The screen, the specs, and the build are among its strongest assets, while on the other hand potential buyers have to make do with the rather small battery inside, lack of specific IO options and fairly high temperatures in taxing loads.

80% Acer ConceptD 5 Pro 17-inch review (CN517-71P – Core i7, Quadro RTX 3000)
Source: Ultrabook Review English
If a wide-gamut UHD screen and Quadro graphics are a must for you, then the Acer ConceptD 5 Pro 17 is worth a good look. It's priced competitively in comparison to other devices with similar specs and the good build quality, fast typing experience, and impeccable display are among its main selling points. At the same time, though, this is not as portable as other options, doesn't run significantly better or cooler, and doesn't offer the business features you'll find with some of the beefier alternatives either, so it might be a hard sell in its professional-targeted niche.

Source: It Pro English
There are obvious, visible seams around the borders of this machine too, and the base edges are uncomfortably sharp. Build quality is inconsistent throughout, in fact. The base section is strong, but the lid is too easy to flex back and forth. A sleeve is advisable to keep this machine safe.

82.7% Acer ConceptD 5 CN515-51 laptop review: Kaby Lake G lightweight struggles with cost cutting | Notebookcheck
Acer leaves known paths with its ConceptD 5 CN515-51 to differentiate itself from the competition, with especially lightweight materials, Kaby Lake G with an integrated AMD GPU and a 4K UHD screen that covers a wider color gamut. At the same time, the Acer ConceptD CN515-51 is also cheaper than other multimedia laptops with a 15.6 inch screen. Unfortunately, the necessary cost cuts are showing up quite fast in this comprehensive review.

84.7% Acer ConceptD 5 17 inch Review: Creativity in large format | Notebookcheck
Acer's 17-inch notebook is almost a workstation, and it is well-positioned with its i7-9750H and GeForce RTX 2060. The matte display also does not need to hide with its 100% sRGB coverage and a high AdobeRGB percentage.

 

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.

AMD Vega M GL / 870: Integrated graphics card in the slower Kaby Lake-G SoCs. Offers 20 CUs = 1280 shaders at 931 - 1011 MHz, 4 GB HBM2 graphics memory (on the same package as the GPU and CPU). The TDP is specified at 65 Watt.

NVIDIA Quadro T1000 (Laptop): Mid range dedicated graphics card for professional laptops based on the consumer GTX 1650 but with less shaders. Therefore it uses the Turing architecture without raytracing and Tensor cores.

These graphics cards are able to play the latest and most demanding games in high resolutions and full detail settings with enabled Anti-Aliasing.

NVIDIA Quadro RTX 3000 (Laptop): High-end professional laptop graphics card based on the consumer GeForce RTX 2070 (TU106 chip) of with 2,304 shaders and 8 GB GDDR6 VRAM. Compared to the desktop variant, the GPU is clocked lower. It offers certified drivers that are optimized for stability and performance.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 Mobile: Mid range to high end laptop graphics card based on the Turing architecture with raytracing features and 1,920 shaders. Compared to the similar named desktop card it offers reduced clock rates.

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


Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  

i7-8705G: Quad-core notebook processor based on the Kaby Lake architecture running at 3.1 - 4.1 GHz. Integrates 4GB fast HBM2 graphics memory that may also be used as a CPU cache and including the high TDP of 65 Watts may lead to a higher CPU performance compared to the similar Core i7-7920HQ. Similar to the Core i7-8706G, but without vPro support.

Intel Coffee Lake:

i7-9750H: On Coffee Lake architecture based processor for big and heavy laptops. Integrates six processor cores clocked at 2.6 - 4.5 GHz (4 GHz with 6 cores) that support HyperThreading. Manufactured in an improved 14nm process (14nm++).
