Acer Nitro 5 Ryzen 5 AMD RX560X Review, Issues, Fix & Gameplay

Acer Nitro 5 Ryzen 5 AMD RX 560X Really worth to use?

Acer nitro 5 Ryzen 5 AMD RX 560X 4GB GPU 2500U CPU, Priced around 650 US! Specs are worth for this price, But performance is Slightly poor. I bought this Laptop last Diwali(2018) at Amazon Sale for 44,000 INR (650 USD), I was so excited to check the Gameplay in this laptop, But latter i really disappointed.

Laptop booting time is too slow, It takes 5 to 6 mins to reach the windows desktop while staring. It takes 4 to 8 hrs for installing latest repack games. Does any other new laptops really take this much of time to install games?

About its thermal issues! I feel the heat in my tie, under the hard disk, Maybe I received a laptop with the poor hard disk, I planned to upgrade to SSD.If you want to play game you should have a good gaming laptop and if you do not have high budget then you can read about gaming laptops under 700 from Blackwidowgames.

Lets check what are the issues i faced and how i overcome it on my own.

  • Switch graphics from Vega to RX560X for all my games
  • Turn on the turbo boost
  • Run the fan at maximum speed in Nitrosense

4. Radeon Setting error –  Driver version Don’t Match:

I totally forget to discuss the AMD Settings,  when comes to AMD graphics! AMD settings play a major role while gaming, It helps to optimize our games to get more fps when I restore my OS! I lost my AMD settings app, even when I update my graphics driver, I stuck to open the app. The apps say “Radeon setting and driver version don’t match” After some research, I found a solution for my AMD Settings.

AMD Relive is default software, used to capture Gameplay. Most of the users complaining about relive, I too missed the relive option in AMD settings. then i found other 2 game recording software to capture my Gameplay.
