Acer Aspire V3-571G review: matte Full HD IPS

Affordable powerhouse with quality screen



Acer has always been good at providing value for your money, and that's certainly true for the Aspire V3-571G-736b8G1TBDCaii. It's laptop with interesting specifications including a Full HD IPS display, a quad-core Intel Core i7 processor and a relatively powerful card from Nvidia.

It costs about 930 euros, and for that money you get a fairly standard-looking 15.6-inch laptop in the typical Acer style. This V3 series looks a bit like the Timeline models from a while back. You won't find any aluminium here, just plastic. The stand-out feature is the matte 15.6-inch Full HD IPS display. IPS screens tend to have much better viewing angles, brightness and colors than the more common TN screens.

The modest design betrays the powerful hardware inside, however. While the Intel Core i7-3630QM is the entry-level model in Intel's quad-core processor series, it's a lot faster than a dual-core processor. The Nvidia GeForce GT640M has 2 GB of video memory, and while it's not a GPU from Nvidia's GTX series, it does provide better performance than the integrated graphics. It's a chip from Nvidia's Kepler family which has 384 Cuda cores (624 MHz) and a memory bandwidth of 1.8 GHz. It's one of the few GT-class cards that's actually fast enough for playing games.
