80% Acer Chromebook 516 GE review: great for gamers?
Quelle: T3 Englisch EN→DE
The Acer Chromebook 516 GE makes cloud gaming on a laptop affordable, and does a decent job of playing AAA games via Nvidia's GeForce Now service. The 16-inch 2K screen is both large and detailed, and the 120Hz refresh rate makes for a smooth gaming experience, as long as your internet can keep up. Away from gaming, this well-specced Chromebook does a good job in general, with fast processors and impressive connectivity, although it doesn't have a touchscreen or customisable keys, and the backlit keyboard is a bit underwhelming.

Though the title of the first gaming Chromebook is a bit overstated, the Acer Chromebook 516 GE is an excellent gaming machine when paired with streaming services. However, it's still not capable of direct Steam gaming, which is unfortunate.

Quelle: Pocket Lint Englisch EN→DE
Taken on its own terms the Chromebook 516 GE proves to be surprisingly successful at bringing gaming to the Chromebook market. Its reliance on subscription-based streaming services for gaming won’t suit everyone - after all, you’re paying a monthly subscription in order to play games that you’ve already paid for. But, if you do have a library of games that you can use with GeForce Now - and a fast enough broadband connection - then the affordable Chromebook 516 GE could provide a genuine alternative to an expensive PC gaming rig.

100% Acer Chromebook 516GE review: The best Chromebook for gaming (and almost everything else)
Quelle: Expert Reviews Englisch EN→DE
The Acer Chromebook 516 GE isn’t going to be everyone’s dream games machine. In fact, if you’re a serious PC gamer, you’d still be better off with a budget gaming laptop, where performance and game support is going to be more predictable. However, the 516GE has two things going for it. First, it’s a great companion laptop if your main gaming device is an Xbox Console or a desktop games PC; you can stream through GeForce Now or Xbox Game Streaming, or even from your own system using Steam Link. You’ll also have access to plenty of games right off the bat, as I can’t imagine anyone buying a subscription to either service without an existing Xbox console or PC, or having some existing PC games to run. Second, it’s just a great Chromebook and, arguably, one of the best for use around the home. You might want thinner or lighter for travel or working on the move but you won’t get a better screen or specification for this money anywhere else. Sure, it’s expensive by Chromebook standards, but it is worth every penny.

As a gaming Chromebook, the Acer Chromebook 516 GE combines powerful hardware and helpful features, creating not only a purpose-built machine for game streaming, but also a top-flight Chromebook in general. The design is excellent, the performance is among the best we've seen, and the feature set is surprisingly premium given the price. It's a very good Chromebook on its own; the cloud gaming is just the hot new feature it's made to showcase. We can recommend regardless of whether you're interested in the cloud gaming features. Ultimately, the first of any new type of device is going to define the category it helps create. Sometimes that's a moot point, as new innovations wither from lack of interest or manufacturer support. But others help reshape the industry. With this being among the first gaming Chromebooks, we're confident in saying that cloud-gaming-capable Chromebooks will be here for the long haul—provided the cloud services themselves can keep up with user expectations.

88% Acer Chromebook 516 GE review: As good as cloud gaming gets
Quelle: Englisch EN→DE
Just like all Chromebooks, gaming Chromebooks live or die on the quality of cloud-based services. When they work well, as GeForce Now did thanks to Acer's optimization, they're a massive money saver and convenience. But, when you start running to laggy, uneven performance, like what Xbox Cloud Gaming provided, you might begin wishing you'd spent the extra cash on a Windows-based gaming laptop and local games. The saving grace here is that Acer and Nvidia have proven that cloud-based gaming is at the point where relatively inexpensive devices, like a high-end Chromebook, can compete with $1,000-plus machines, at least for just about everyone aside from ultra-competitive, first-person shooter fans. Now we just have to see how long it takes everyone else to catch up or surpass them.

80% Acer Chromebook 516 GE review: a Chromebook for gaming?
Quelle: Digital Trends Englisch EN→DE
The Acer Chromebook 516 GE has plenty of real-world performance to keep cloud gamers happy. The power and endurance complement the smooth, accurate display. So long as you have fast internet speeds, gaming on the 516 GE is a joy. As a Chromebook for all other functions, it’s fantastic as well, although it would be great to see a touchscreen or 2-in-1 version in the future. Competition is pretty straightforward right now, with literally only three stream-gaming models to choose from: the 516 GE from Acer, the Asus Chromebook Vibe CX55 Flip ($700), and Lenovo IdeaPad Gaming Chromebook ($550). Lenovo is probably the closest specs-wise to the Acer, whereas the Asus offers a 2-in-1 solution and a 144 Hz refresh rate FHD screen. Just as importantly, this new genre of Chromebooks is a nice surprise from Google. Following the failure of Stadia, it’s good to see Chromebooks specifically designed to run Nvidia GeForce Now (you get three months free with the 516 GE), Steam (now on the beta channel), Amazon Luna+, and Xbox Cloud Gaming. Most of these services can stream at 120Hz 1600p, which is in line with the hardware of these new models. It seems like such a natural progression that it makes you wonder why there wasn’t a push for these devices sooner.

Acer Chromebook 516 GE review: great at gaming and basically everything else
Quelle: Chrome Unboxed Englisch EN→DE
Sometimes, things just line up the right way when you weren’t expecting them to. That’s basically the story with the Acer Chrombook 516 GE, a Chromebook that is built for cloud gaming, marketed as such, and does a great job at that task. But in building a Chromebook suited for gaming, Acer went and created something far more attractive: a Chromebook that’s good at just about everything you could want. On the surface, you may look at photos, videos, and spec sheets on this Chromebook and think things like that’s too big of a Chromebook for me or I’m not really that into gaming, but I’d tell you to stick around for this one. While not the perfect Chromebook all around – there will never be one – this Chromebook gets so much right and is such an absolute delight to use that even if you’ve not been into bigger Chromebooks before or you don’t consider yourself a gamer (I know I don’t), this device still has a whole lot to offer.

80% Acer Chromebook 516 GE Review: A Worthwhile, But Niche, Investment
Quelle: Slashgear Englisch EN→DE
I think the fact of the matter is that a cloud gaming laptop will only be as good as the service it's streaming. For instance, the 516 GE standard refresh rate allows for 120 frames per second on the display — which is exactly the maximum that GeForce NOW is capable of, too. So, if we are waiting and hoping for cloud gaming laptops to improve, we should expect cloud gaming services to grow and develop first. That said, if you fit the description of someone solely seeking out a cloud gaming laptop, then I'd say it's a resounding yes — this laptop is very much worth it for you. The question becomes which GeForce NOW tier is going to best serve your needs. You could spend $200 per year (and that's strictly just for the cloud gaming, not for any actual game purchases or distribution platforms) for 120 FPS, and 4K resolution, but the 516 GE isn't capable of 4K. However, at this tier, you get eight-hour sessions on servers dedicated to the top tier, so that'll be an easy answer for the most dedicated cloud gaming individual. But if you're new to the cloud gaming realm or just want to make sure this fits you before you spend the cash, GeForce Now's free, basic setup will at least help you answer that question. No matter what you choose, the Acer Chromebook 516 GE is a great instrument to get you there.

Intel Iris Xe G7 80EUs: Integrierte Grafikkarte (in Tiger-Lake G4 SoCs) der Gen. 12 Architektur mit 80 EUs. Z.B. in Tiger Lake i5 CPUs verbaute iGPU.

Diese Klasse ist noch durchaus fähig neueste Spiele flüssig darzustellen, nur nicht mehr mit allen Details und in hohen Auflösungen. Besonders anspruchsvolle Spiele laufen nur in minimalen Detailstufen, wodurch die grafische Qualität oft deutlich leidet. Diese Klasse ist nur noch für Gelegenheitsspieler empfehlenswert. Der Stromverbrauch von modernen Grafikkarten in dieser Klasse ist dafür geringer und erlaubt auch bessere Akkulaufzeiten.

» Weitere Informationen gibt es in unserem Notebook-Grafikkartenvergleich und der Benchmarkliste.

i5-1240P: Auf der Alder-Lake-Architektur basierender High-End Mobilprozessor. Bietet 4 Performance-Kerne und 8 Effizienzkerne und kann 16 Threads gleichzeitig bearbeiten. Der maximale Turbo-Takt der P-Kerne beträgt 4,4 GHz. Unterstützt die "Essentials" vPro Features für remote Management.» Weitere Infos gibt es in unserem Prozessorvergleich Vergleich mobiler Prozessoren und der Prozessoren Benchmarkliste .


15-16 Zoll ist die Standard-Displaygröße für Notebooks und bietet die größte Produktvielfalt. 

Große Bildschirmgrößen ermöglichen höhere Auflösungen und/oder man Details besser erkennen (zB größere Schrift). Kleinere Display-Diagonalen dagegen verbrauchen weniger Energie, sind oft billiger und ermöglichen handlichere, leichtere Geräte.

Acer: 1976 wurde das Unternehmen unter dem Namen Multitech in Taiwan gegründet und 1987 in Acer unbenannt bzw. Acer Group. Zur Produktpalette gehören beispielsweise Laptops, Tablets, Smartphones, Desktops, Monitore und Fernseher. Der Konzern ist seit 2007 mit Gateway Inc. und Packard Bell zusammengeschlossen, die ebenfalls eigene Laptop-Produktlinien vermarkten.

2008 hatte Acer noch den drittgrößten globalen Marktanteil bei Notebooks. 2016 dagegen liegt Acer in diesem Segment aufgrund kontinuierlicher Marktanteil-Verluste auf Rang 6 mit 9% Marktanteil.

Es gibt dutzende Acer-Laptop-Testberichte pro Monat, die Bewertungen sind durchschnittlich (Stand 2016). 

84.75%: Diese Bewertung muss man eigentlich als durchschnittlich ansehen, denn es gibt etwa ebenso viele Notebooks mit besseren Beurteilungen wie Schlechteren. Die Verbalbeurteilungen klingen aber oft besser als sie wirklich sind, denn richtig gelästert wird über Notebooks eher selten. Obwohl dieser Bereich offiziell meist einem "Befriedigend" entspricht, passt oft eher "mäßiger Durchschnitt".
