An Ultra Book With A Dedicated Graphics Card
It is the differential element of the Acer Swift X. The Taiwanese company has wanted to find an intermediate formula so that you can take this laptop anywhere, both trips and regular trips but, at the same time, so that you have enough graphic capacity to face games and graphic design programs. Specifically, you will find the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 (Ti) card . It is a very competitive card. One of its greatest attractions is the ray tracing system, which is capable of managing light rays in a much more powerful way than previous generations of cards. This card has 4 GB of RAM memory.
In terms of power, AMD processors are integrated. Depending on the configuration you choose, you can have an eight-core AMD Ryzen 7 5800U in the most advanced version or a six-core AMD Ryzen 5 5600U for the most basic configurations, along with 8 GB or 16 GB of RAM. As for internal memory, the Acer Swift X is also well served with 512 GB or 1 TB of storage in PCIe Gen3 type SSD format.
Lightweight Design And Cooling Match
The design of the Acer Swift X is not surprising but it maintains the elegant and fine lines typical of an ultrabook. Of course, it is somewhat thick (1.8 centimeters) for what we have seen in other thin models of the brand but it is explained by the housing of the graphics card. It also takes advantage of this space to introduce an advanced multi-tool combo cooling system. On the one hand, a fan with 59 0.3-millimeter blades along with a pair of copper heat pipes that help prevent it from overheating, and on the other, a keyboard with air inlet (up to 10% more ejection heat than a standard keyboard).
The weight of the Acer Swift X is 1.39 kilos . You will have it available in three shades: gold, rose gold and titanium gray. The company also wanted to highlight a fingerprint reader to take advantage of the Windows Hello login system.
As for the connections, this model is well covered. We have two full-size USB ports, another Type-C USB port, an HDMI port, and a headphone jack. You can miss the Ethernet port, although it is not common to find it in ultrabooks. What Acer has wanted to highlight is the noise suppression function for video calls using artificial intelligence, which is a plus when teleworking. In the field of wireless connections we find WiFi 6 (compatible with 5 GHz networks) and Bluetooth 5.2, the latest version of this connection protocol.
14-INCH Screen And Autonomy For A Whole Day
The display of the Acer Switch X does the job well. Above all, due to the fact that it is capable of covering 100% of the sRGB color space . This means that we can enjoy colors much closer and faithful to the original source. We are talking about a 14-inch screen of IPS type and Full HD resolution . Where I find this panel lacking a bit of oomph is in the 300 nit brightness. Not that it is insufficient, but you may suffer a bit more if you regularly use this laptop outdoors.
The field of autonomy is more than covered. The Acer Switch X maxes out at 17 hours of use . As always, these are unrealistic figures in normal use of the equipment, but it should withstand the work without problems throughout an entire working day.
Price And Reviews
The Acer Swift X will still keep us waiting a few months. with a price that will start at 900 euros. In short, we are facing an attractive model with many possibilities to take it on a trip or work from home. Its strong point is in that balance between portability and graphic power, thanks to its NVIDIA card.
