This version has the model 4830TG-TimelineX Aspire 2414G64Mn.
One of its characteristic is to integrate technology Nvidia Optimus that optimizes the use of graphics, favoring either the Intel GMA 3000 HD integrated into the processor or the Geforce GT 540M and it automatically depending on needs. Optimus is the maximum appeal to the Intel GMA 3000 HD because it is less energy intensive and therefore implies greater autonomy. Moreover, the self-announced 9 hours of this notebook is particularly interesting in view of its configuration.
Optimus seek the Geforce GT 540M only if it believes that at some point performance of Intel's GMA 3000 HD is insufficient to meet the tasks performed by the user. This is particularly the case if we launch a game, an area where the dedicated graphics card is DirectX 11 shows able to run many games as long as it adapts the level of details and / or resolution screen under the titles of the most resource intensive 3D.
