Performance, autonomy of the Acer Aspire 5 A515-45G-R5XH

The Acer Aspire 5 A515-45G-R5XH is a 15-inch High Definition laptop designed for everyday general-purpose use.

It embeds the dedicated AMD Polaris Radeon RX 640 graphics card thanks to which one can watch and play modest titles.

Depending on the tasks performed, a switch is made automatically and in real time between the Radeon RX 640 and the Radeon Vega 7, graphics part integrated into the processor.

If with one and the other, you can watch photos and videos, the less efficient Radeon Vega 7 is nevertheless preferred to the maximum because it is energy efficient and thus promotes autonomy.
In this regard, expect about 7 hours of battery operation in light use.

The Radeon RX 640 is called upon to carry out graphics work deemed too heavy for the Radeon Vega 7, typically for gaming.

The Radeon Vega 7 takes its place directly in the AMD APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) Ryzen 5 5500U low-power Lucienne Hexa Core processor.
It is here coupled with 16 GB of RAM to provide good general performance capable of satisfying many users.
