Reviews for the Acer ConceptD 5
Source: Laptop Media Archive.org version
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.

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.

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.

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.
Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.
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. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
15-inch display variants are the standard and are used for more than half of all laptops.
The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, often allows high resolutions and thus offers rich details on the screen, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact - simply the standard compromise.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
Acer: In 1976, the company was founded in Taiwan under the name Multitech and was renamed Acer or Acer Group in 1987. The product range includes, for example, laptops, tablets, smartphones, desktops, monitors, TVs and computer peripherals. Since 2007, the group has merged with Gateway Inc. and Packard Bell, which also market their own laptop product lines.
Acer computers are designed for a variety of purposes, including ultrabooks for mobile use, gaming laptops for gamers, affordable options for everyday tasks, and 2-in-1 convertible laptops for versatility. Acer's product portfolio also includes tablets that offer portable computing and multimedia capabilities.
