Acer unveils Swift X ultrathin laptop powered by AMD Ryzen 5000


Meet the newest member of Acer’s popular Swift line: the ultrathin and light Swift X.

This slim machine is powered by an AMD Ryzen 5000 Series Mobile Processor with “Zen 3” architecture and the latest NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 Ti laptop GPUs.

This slim machine (Acer Swift X SFX14-41G​) is the first Swift laptop to come with discrete graphics, all at an impressive 1.39kg. Its NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 Ti Laptop GPU, based on NVIDIA’s Ampere architecture, combined with up to an AMD Ryzen 7 5800U and 16GB of RAM offers creative professionals plenty of power. True to the Swift family, all this hardware has been fitted into a metal chassis just 17.9mm thin.

The productivity capabilities of the Swift X are further enhanced by up to 2TB of SSD storage and a fast-charging 59W battery that offers up to 17 hours of use.

The Swift X features a 14-inch FHD IPS display with an 85.7% screen-to-body ratio, 300 nits brightness, and 100% sRGB. There’s also a plentiful array of ports: HDMI , two USB-A, and a full-function USB Type-C. The notebook also includes a fingerprint sensor, AI-enhanced noise suppression for smoother video calls, and Acer BlueLightShield technology to help lessen eye strain.

Keeping things cool even during long, heavy work sessions are a fan with 59 0.3 mm blades, a pair of D6 copper heat pipes, an air inlet keyboard design, and a stereo ring with an inclined plane sitting along the top of the fan that delivers up to a 5-10% improvement in airflow.

Local pricing and availability have yet to be announced.
