Reviews for the Acer Nitro 5 AN515-42

Acer Nitro 5 (AN515-42, Radeon RX 560X) review – not just a facelift, there is a new engine under the bonnet
Source: Laptop Media English
Comparing the new Acer Nitro 5 to the older model – it’s definitely a more refined product in every direction, and most notably – the CPU. With its 15W TDP, the Ryzen 7 2700U is miles ahead of the FX-9830P used in the last AMD combo. It has a huge performance boost, thanks to the new “Zen” architecture while using three times less energy to do so – quite impressive. The configuration we tested also came with a GPU that makes a debut on the market – AMD Radeon RX 560X, which is nearly as good as the desktop version of the chip.

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.
