As part of Acer’s CES launch, the business is announcing updates to both the Acer Aspire 5 and Acer Aspire 7, bumping both models to the most recent AMD Ryzen 5000 series of processors. The new designs are aimed at creativity, without breaking the bank.
Acer Aspire 7
Not as cutting edge as some other designs in Acer’s lineup, the Aspire 7 still includes an 81.6% screen to body ratio on the 15.6-inch display, and Acer is calling for accurate color representation thanks to Acer Color Intelligence and Acer ExaColor to adjust gamma and saturation on the fly to avoid clipping and over-saturation.
The 15.6-inch Acer Aspire 7 targets developers who require the extra efficiency of a devoted graphics card, and Acer has matched Ryzen 5000 APUs with NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 1650. The Aspire 7 can be defined with approximately 32 GB of DDR4, and a 1 TB PCIe SSD. There will be an additional 2.5-inch drive slot too, for additional storage.
The beginning setup will provide the Ryzen 5 in addition to 8 GB of RAM and a 512 GB SSD and the GeForce GTX 1650 for simply $749. Availability is March 2021.
Acer Aspire 5
Also including a 15.6-inch FHD display, the Acer Aspire 5 strikes an even lower cost bracket, pairing the Ryzen 5000 with an optional AMD Radeon RX 640 GPU, as much as 24 GB of memory, and approximately a 1 TB M. 2 SSD.
The Acer Aspire 5 is likewise targeting a March release date.
The base configuration is especially price-conscious, with a Ryzen 5 5500U, 1920×1080 60Hz IPS display, 8 GB of RAM, and a 256 GB SSD for simply $549.
