Acer Introduces New Aspire 5750G Packed with New Performance-Enhancing Technology

• 2nd-Generation Intel® Core™ Processor With Turbo Boost Technology • Dynamic Switching Between Intel HD And Nvidia Optimus 540M Discrete Graphics Controllers • Dolby® Advanced Audio v2

Sydney, Australia 19 January 2011- The Aspire 5750G is part of a new line of Aspire notebooks geared for consumers who demand outstanding HD entertainment and smooth multitasking in a mobile form factor. Some features include the latest 2nd Generation Intel® Core™ Processor with turbo boost technology, and the capability of dynamic switching between Intel HD and Nvidia Optimus 540M discrete graphics controllers. Combined with Acer’s clear.fi home entertainment solution for sharing content in the home, and Blu-ray, the new Aspire 5750G is well equipped for digital applications.

Utilising the power of Intel’s 2nd Generation Core i processors, the Aspire 5750G notebook provides maximum CPU/GPU performance for amazing high-definition (HD) experiences and comes loaded with 4-6GB of memory. The hard drives offer up to 640GB of storage space for a large library of music, videos, images and games. The Aspire 5750G is one of the first to market with the new NVIDIA® GeForce® GT 540M graphics solution, which includes full DirectX 11 support along with NVIDIA Optimus™ technology, a hybrid graphics engine that intelligently optimizes a notebook to switch between UMA or discrete graphics, depending on the application’s needs.

Chris Osborne, Acer’s Senior Product Manager says “Optimus switchable graphics offers the end user real benefits that they can measure. They get Nvidia’s latest 3D graphics capabilities for smooth DVD playback and game play when plugged in, and prolonged battery life when mobile thanks to Intel’s latest embedded HD graphics controller. What’s more, the switching is completely seamless with no interruption to the user and eliminates the need to re-boot.”
 
The Aspire 5750G notebook series features visually appealing and practical designs. The notebooks are housed in a black, matte mesh casing, preventing smudges and scratches. With LED-backlit widescreen displays, the Aspire 57050G sports a 15.6” HD display (1366 x 768 resolution), ideally suited for entertainment needs and outstanding visual experiences.
