Acer’s flagship line of Swift X notebooks is going to be one of the first to tote around Intel’s brand-new Arc graphics. The 16 -inch model, at least, will be Acer’s firstly with Intel’s attempt at toppling NVIDIA’s leadership rank in the mobile graphics room. That comes with a handful of other quality-of-life improvements, including a 400 -nit( up from 300 nits last year ), 100 percent sRGB, 16:10 showing. You can choose either a WQXGA( 2,560 x 1,600) or WUXGA( 1,920 x 1,200) resolution screen to cram inside, too.
Build-to-order alternatives include a brand-new 12 th-generation Intel Core processor paired with the brand-new Arc graphics. That will be paired with up to 32 GB of LPDDR5 RAM and up to 2TB SSD storage, as well as WiFi 6e. In being, it’s a little lighter than its immediate predecessor although if you were walking past it in a hurry you’d scarcely know the difference. The webcam is now FHD, too.
I wasn’t able to take any marks on the pre-release hardware I was able to see in the flesh, but Acer is feeling bullish about the performance here. It says that its new dual fan motif, bigger breeze vent-holes( and they are beefy) and bigger flues on the keyboard should expel up to 10 percent more heat than previous accounts. You’ll too be able to switch to silent moving should the need develop, albeit at the price of much of your performance.
Acer also made it clear that the existing Swift X, which is currently shipping with the capabilities of an RTX 3050/ 3050 Ti, will remain on shelves for the foreseeable. That lane, should you find Intel’s brand-new silicon not to your penchant, you can still get the upgrade you crave.
The 14 -inch model, meanwhile, gets all of the other hardware humps, including the better display alternatives, the 12 th generation Intel Chip, up to 16 GB RAM and Windows 11. But graphics-wise, you’re left with the RTX 3050/ 3050 Ti, which is probably enough for most consumers who aren’t yet ready to mount feet-first into Intel’s brand-new ocean.
We don’t have US pricing or accessibility for the Swifts just yet, but in the UK we’re expect them to arrive by the end of February or the start of March for around PS1, 000( around $1,350 ).
