Acer Aspire 5542g Review

The Acer 5542G is the organization’s trade display for it’s well known 5536/5536G arrangement. The new model accompanies an improved processor and an entirely different Tigris stage. It was after over seven days’ pause and telephone calls that I got hold of one Acer Aspire 5542G. From the minute I read the determination sheet, I have been extremely excited to get the machine in my grasp. The specs gloats about an AMD Turion II 2.2 Ghz, 3GB DDR2 Memory, ATI 4570 Dedicated designs card with a 512MB DDR3 memory and a very liberal 320GB Hard plate drive at a cost tag of not as much as RS 34000, which is a significant enticing arrangement.

In this definite survey we will perceive how these specs meet the genuine execution needs.

Key highlights:

In this segment, we will look in detail at the key segments that makes up this workstation. I will likewise endeavor to incorporate as much particulars and subtleties as accessible from the maker’s source.


Acer Aspire 5542G accompanies the second era AMD Turion Processor (AMD Turion II M500) timed at 2.2Ghz which houses a 1MB L2 Cache. The Turion II M500 is created utilizing the 45nm innovation. It has a place with the Caspian age of processors and supports HyperTransport 3.0 and equipment virtualization.

The Turion is AMDs answer to portable processors, which gives great execution while keeping the power utilization at the base. The Turion processors produces less warmth contrasted with AMD’s work area work steeds that have a terrible notoriety in warmth outflow division. The Turion II being the following rendition of the better than average entertainer Turion, it sets exclusive standards as far as contending with the Core 2 Duos in the market. We will perceive how it scores in genuine execution when we benchmark it not far off.

Illustrations Card: ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4570 512MB DDR3

One of the principle attractions of this workstation is the designs motor that lies underneath the hood. The Acer 5542G accompanies a devoted ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4570 with 512 MB of DDR3 memory.

For those of you who are not clear about the contrast between an incorporated and a committed designs arrangement, I’m including a couple of words. An Integrated illustrations arrangement (eg: the Intel’s X4500) doesn’t accompany committed video memory; it gobbles up your framework memory for designs preparing and consequently the slower way between the framework memory and the illustrations motor causes the greatest container neck with regards to execution. Additionally the incorporated designs processor would be less incredible than a standard devoted one in crude handling power. Then again, a committed illustrations card will more often than not have a rapid devoted video memory (eg: DDR3) which is coupled to the designs processor. This expels the jug neck and gives the card predominant execution. The designs processor on a devoted card would as a rule bolster top of the line impacts given by the most recent DirectX and OpenGL APIs which gives the authenticity and visual-sweet in the most recent amusements.

The HD 4570 is a quicker timed rendition of the Mobility Radeon 4530/4330. It has a 64 Bit memory transport and accompanies a 512MB DDR3 VRAM. The 512MB ought to be satisfactory for most gaming and designs needs, except if you play in the craziest goals. (As rendering goals builds, the more memory it needs). The DDR3 memory will address the issues for the quickest and tremendous volume surface handling that cutting edge diversions request. Anyway the 64 bit transport stands mediocre compared to the 128 piece transport that most standard cards offer.

The ATI Mobility Radeon 4570 depends on the RV710 chip and it gives 80 stream processors. The Mobility Radeon likewise gives the video innovation called Avivo HD that gives an on board 7.1 sound chip. The designs arrangement likewise includes a second era Unified Video Decoder that underpins full bitstream unraveling of H.264/MPEG-4 AVC and VC-1 streams. The 4570 designs unit is equipped for taking care of all video errands including HD video disentangling.


The Acer 5542G accompanies a 15.6″ High Definition LED illuminated TFT LCD show that gives 220-nit high splendor and Acer’s Cinecrystal show innovation. The unadulterated widescreen (16:9) show bolsters a greatest goals of 1366X768 and gives a 60% shading extent. It has a high-def reaction time of 8ms.

Memory: There is not a lot to brag about a 3GB DDR2 800Mhz memory that accompanies the Acer Aspire 5542G when contrasted with the present line of PCs a considerable lot of which sports a 4GB in the engine. The 3GB is adequate for the greater part of the figuring needs which can later be moved up to 4GB. Anyway the 3GB arrangement would seem sensible when we keep the sticker price of the Acer 5542G as a primary concern.

Hard Disk Drive: Again there’s nothing stunning in this office. Be that as it may, I would state that the 320GB that accompanies the Acer 5542G is liberal for the vast majority of your stockpiling needs.

Processor execution and benchmark:

I was at first hesitant to change from the Intel’s demonstrated workhorse Core 2 Duo to the AMD’s Turion group of processors. The Intel’s processor beats the AMD partner, gave that the two keeps running on a similar clock speed; the primary offender being the lower L2 store in AMDs. However, my hesitance to proceed onward to the AMD Turion II was cleared away by the execution benchmarks. The AMD Turion II M500 2.2 Ghz beats the Intel Core 2 Duo 6670 2.2 Ghz. At the point when AMD Turion II M500 scores a better than average score of 1426, the Intel Core2 Duo 6670 figured out how to get just 1379, however the edge isn’t immense.

The Turion II M500 additionally scored higher in the Windows 7 execution rating with a score of 5.7 against the score of 5.5 of the Intel’s Core 2 Duo 6600.

The Turion II without uncertainty has improved it’s design significantly contrasted with the past age Turion, which causes it to accomplish a higher exhibition benchmark, while contending head-on with the Intel’s partner, despite the fact that AMD Turion II M500 houses just 1MB L2 reserve contrasted with the 2MB offered by the Intel’s variations.

The AMD Turion II M500 is without a doubt a superb entertainer and is estimable for being the main AMD processor display surpassing the Intel Core 2 Duo along the execution lines, the two of which are timed at a similar speed. In spite of the fact that the Turion II has just 1MB L2 Cache it expedites amazing execution and registering power a financial plan. The Turion II M500 processor gives the Acer 5542G with extraordinary calculating productivity, that was much discernible when we ran tests including packing/extricating, Gaming and Video rendering utilizing 3D illustrations instruments. The Acer 5542G demonstrated lively execution amid every day registering, and the Windows responsiveness and performing multiple tasks were altogether speedy.

Illustrations card execution:

The Acer 5542G with the ATI Mobility Radeon 4570 with 512MB Dedicated DDR3 VRAM isn’t an uncommon entertainer as far as the most recent gaming measures. Yet, not many workstations accompanies a top of the line designs card that addresses the top of the line gamer’s issues and those machines will wear out your wallet without a doubt. The HD 4570 in the Acer 5542G is a respectable designs card to play a little more seasoned amusement titles in full detail though with regards to the latest diversions, you may need to change the detail level to a medium to get sensible casing rates.

The Acer 5542G is an incredible decision for gamer’s on a financial plan just as 3D Graphics originators and Animators.

I found the Acer 5542G conveying smooth edge rates on Test Drive Unlimited even at the most astounding settings, however a video survey of the Dell Studio 15 lodging similar designs card demonstrated altogether lower outline rates in YouTube. May be the execution support is because of the DDR3 Video Memory just as the better calculating done by the AMD Turion II M500. The card fared actually well in more seasoned titles like Need For Speed Most Wanted, Need For Speed UnderCover, Unreal Tournament 2003, and Crysis Warhead even at the most elevated detail settings with 1024X768 goals and FSAA turned on. The Acer 5542G likewise conveyed reliably playable edge rates in Microsoft Flight Simulator which is a very asset hungry amusement, because of the nearness of immense surfaces and broad landscape.

Show execution:

The 220-nit high splendor show of the Acer 5542G, gives amazing showcase quality with great sharpness and complexity. It additionally conveys great and exact shading generation (60% array). The visibility from sides isn’t excellent, yet is satisfactory. The main significant impediment of the showcase is that it’s high polished completion pulls in glare. Subsequently it isn’t reasonable while seeing against any immediate light source.

Sound Performance:

The Acer 5542G games a Dolby affirmed sound framework. The Realtek chip gives 32bit sound translating and gives SP-DIF and Dolby Digital yield. It likewise underpins Dolby Headphone and Dolby Virtual Surround modes. It implies you will be in sound ecstasy, on the off chance that you associate the Acer 5542G to a pleasant home theater or top of the line earphones.

The inherent speakers of the Acer 5542G obviously does not have the bass and was a failure amid our tests. The sound plainly comes up short on the pound component in it. It doesn’t imply that the speakers are useless. The speakers give you exceptionally decent high and medium range frequencies great. The sound volume levels were sufficiently uproarious and will be satisfactory on the off chance that you are not amidst an exceptionally loud condition.


The Acer 5542G accompanies a 6-cell battery pack. It would presumably disillusion you, on the off chance that you are searching for a PC with 3+ hours battery reinforcement. The lower battery reinforcement can be credited to the humbly enormous 15.6″ show combined with the committed illustrations card that can deplete out a considerable amount of battery control. With the screen splendor at low, I had the capacity to get a 2 hours 50 minutes reinforcement with no sound, video or recreations turned on. At most astounding execution setting, you can anticipate around two hours of battery reinforcement.


Being an AMD based workstation the majority of us who have utilized an AMD based framework would hav
