The RTX A5000 laptop GPU empowers creators to use ray tracing and AI for greater rendering, 8K editing and workflow with multiple applications.
With up to 64 GB of 3200 Hz DDR4 memory and 2 TB of PCIe Gen 4 M.2 SSDs in RAID 0, they provide all the power and storage creators need to handle 4K video, use multiple monitors or video applications. 2D and 3D rendering. Acer's Vortex Flow, a cooling layout with three fans (including a 5th generation 3D Aeroblade), is strategically organized to provide additional cooling for the CPU and GPU, allowing you to achieve a little more performance under particularly demanding working conditions.
Complementing all that power is an incredible 16-inch 3K QHD (3072 × 1920) screen validated for PANTONE® which supports 100% of the DCI-P3 color range, plus a Delta E <2 color accuracy rating. Its narrow frame design provides a screen-to-body ratio of 87%, while the 16:10 ratio offers many benefits for professional creators. When compared to the more widely used 16: 9 aspect ratio, it is noticeably higher, giving creators more screen space to monitor videos and or use multiple tracks without having to hide task bars or resize viewing windows.
Notebooks include a wide range of connectivity options: two USB Type-C ports with Thunderbolt support™ 4, HDMI 2.1, an SD card reader (SD7.0) and more. A quiet keyboard and touchpad designed for noise reduction eliminate yet another small distraction that could disrupt the user's creative flow, and the touchpad with Corning® Gorilla® 6-inch wide glass has a fingerprint reader for more practical and secure logins.
