I wonder where Acer gets these IPS displays (not in this particular case) that are so woefully short in terms of colour gamut. Even in the pricier Nitro and Predator series. Still have to be applauded for the excellent price-to-performance ratio and easily accessible maintenance hatches.

Ryzen 5 2500u is not good in any way..If you are into programming or any basic usage go with 8th Gen Intel Core i5-8250U laptop or if you are into gaming try one with MX150 gaming card..based on personal experience with a AMD Ryzen Desktop processor wink

i know but with IPS display and empty m2 ssd slot in 33.8k after exchange of an old sandybridge i5 whose body party are falling apart is fine .
Would have loved to get the acer in last sale which had i5 , 128GB SSD with IPS but missed that so ….
seems okay
usage is multimedia only and light gaming may be

Oh please, ryzen 2500u is much better in than any integrated gpu of intel at this price point its just a no brainer. Tell me one good laptop at this price better than this

Because you don’t know what you’re talking about sad

Do you even know the best way to measure battery life? As for single threaded performance, if someone really needs it then he’s better off using a desktop anyway, as on laptops the chip will overheat & slow down from its boost clocks.

As for the rest, Sandeep has covered most of it also an MX150+8250u (or i7) will not give more batter life than this, not unless the battery is of higher capacity like 6 cell.

I am running a Linux (Ubuntu) desktop with Ryzen 5 chip. Ryzen in paper is more powerful than a i5 7th gen proc.. But in reality its not, my friends i5 7th gen proc just blows away my configuration in most of the general tasks. AMD has a long way to go.

And if you are into programming or any development usage, stick with intel at least for now.. Most of the encoding/code compilation are designed keeping intel proc in mind sad

P.S I am an AMD fan

True I had wrongly assumed that all products will be able to hit the 4.0GHz mark even if only momentarily. This was cleared up after going through this article for Huawei Matebook Pro ‘18 "That being said, in our very quick testing of the device, we did some power and frequency monitoring, and while the CPU did hit 15W, it seemed that the PL2 (turbo power limit) of the device was also set to 15W, so the Core i7 CPU only hit 2.8 GHz maximum, rather than the official 4.0 GHz turbo, which requires a PL2 setting of 44W. This isn’t uncommon (Acer Swift 3 has PL2 of 32W), but a factor when moving to 8th Gen processors and a consideration as to if a fan is involved." Now I don’t how much 32W translates to in terms of clockspeeds but I guess it should be around the 3.5GHz range(for the Intel version of the Acer Swift 3) . I haven’t found any other info in this regard. Do you have any idea regarding this?

Looks like a very welcome improvement in contrast ratio but the same old color deficient panels that struggle to display even half the sRGB gamut. There is not anything much better in this range though. The Asus Vivobook S510UN with Nvidia MX150 and Windows 10can be had for Rs 54k after CB from Paytm but has a lower CR. At about 71k the Asus Zenbook UX430 boasts an excellent display. Next step up and by far the best the Dell XPS at 87k.

That’s simply not true. Even in heavily single-threaded benchmarks the R5 is faster in majority of the benchmarks. In fact the Ci5 7200U was faster in only benchmark… by 10% https://techreport.com/review/32877/amd-ryzen-5... The next page has the multithreaded benchmarks where the Intel part was is embarrassingly behind. @Simbha3
And in professional workloads which can leverage the GPU it can be a handful. From the same article “Ryzen 5 2500u smashes Intel offerings on graphics processing, when all cores are used, for real work.
I do considerable simulation or astro photography work, using an SSD on this laptop. and compare it to workstation class laptops, the Ryzen 5 APU finishes the job in considerable less time.
Unfortunately I can’t share much about the engineering side, so Ill concentrate on the astro photography side, which does demand a lot of cores and a good graphics card.
Then processing the image with Deep Space Stacker, PixInsight or StarTools as well as PhotoShop or Gimp 2.9.6.
I personally use SharpCap, BackyardEOS, StarTools, DSS, PIPP, Gimp 2.9.6 and many other astro photography tools, and this laptop blows away an HP 8650W workstation with an i-7 3820QM and an ZBook G2 with an i-7 4810MQ processor (both with SSDs) as well as a Lenovo P51 with an i7-7820HQ processor and all these with 16GB Ram and higher clock speeds.
The HDD is the main culprit for the lack of snappiness of the Ryzen 5 2500u laptop. This is easily addressed by installing an SSD and additional RAM and compare then it to the other laptops with similar setups. There is no appreciable difference for the end user, and it outperforms all these others fairly easily by a wide margin, in all graphics tasks and number crunching applications that use all cores consuming very little power while doing so.
While the workstations need some very bulky and energy consuming batteries or power supplies. They run hot, and are extremely bulky. All these are laptops that run over 2000usd new compared to 750 and cant be used on the go easily. Specially if you travel a lot. It’s worse, if you have to do some climbing or trekking, to do your work.
Now I do understand this is a niche market, for photography and astro photography or graphic designers, and certainly some developers and scientist or engineers that do intensive number crunching. But under these circumstances, this laptop shines!”.

Ryzen 5 1400 is in same price range of i5 7400 (12k+) .. Here is the cpu.userbenchmark (Non-biased comp site)
http://cpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Intel-Core...

In benchmark itself Intel is 7% faster, i am not saying AMD is bad bro..its just their IPC (Instruction Per Cycle) is not as optimized as Intel. These guys ruled the market for a long time and they got few things correct.

If intel releases cheap motherboards for 8th gen processors, then even i3 8100 can beat ryzen 5 very easily. Don’t know why they are delaying it for a longgg time.

Why bring desktop parts into the equation here? You mentioned the R5 2500U and hence this followed.
Yes I know Intel is still ahead in terms of IPC to the tune 10-15%. And due to their lithography advantages they can clock higher which widens the gap in single-threaded tasks.
Edit : Even the lowly R3 2200G is competitive against the Ci3 8100 and absolutely murders it in graphics perf. In single-threaded benchmarks https://techreport.com/review/33235/amd-ryzen-3... I don’t hold much stock with the site you linked. And scores of other much more reputable sites have similar findings as Techreport.com which is still an independent publication and not under any media house.

Both have same benchmark score, 2500u has little more.
Anyway AMD is releasing 2nd gen of all Rayzens. Might be delayed in India

It looks like all AMD-based models have on-board(soldered) RAM which can’t be expanded beyond 8GB max. whereas the Intel ones can be upgraded to 16GB. Ofc the APUs need dual-channel memory to keep the GPU well-fed but there is no reason that space couldn’t be found for including slots esp. on a 15.6" model. Guess its another example of an OEM hobbling an AMD product. But the AMD ones are way cheaper….
