Acer today revealed two new Swift 3 models in its portable notebook series, one a 13.5 inch model (SF313-52/G) powered by the latest 10th Gen Intel Core processors and the other a 14 inch model (SF314-42) powered by the latest AMD Ryzen 4000 series mobile processors.
The Acer Swift 3 SF313-52/G measures in at 15.95mm thin and 1.19 kg and is encased in a metal chassis. It also features a narrow-bezel display with an 83.65% screen-to-body ratio and supports 100% of the sRGB color space. This is thanks to Acer Color Intelligence and Acer ExaColor technology which makes images and video have more eye-popping colors.
It’s also equipped with up to 10th Gen Intel Core i7-1065G7 processors, the latest NVIDIA graphics, and battery that they say gets 16 hours of ‘productivity’. Which is a weird way of measuring your battery, but all for it I guess. Capable of fast charging up to four hours of use in a 30-minute charge, its focus is clearly on the mobile market.
The Swift 3 supports Windows Hello via a fingerprint reader for easy and more secure logins, and once logged in, a full function USB Type-C port gives users incredibly fast data transfer speeds over Thunderbolt 3, USB 3.1 Gen 2 or DisplayPort.
