Acer Swift 3 (SF314-511) review – lightweight and pretty powerful
Source: Laptop Media English
If you are in search of a daily driver that has the power to go through your workday without hesitation, then you might have stumbled across an Acer Swift 3. This particular notebook comes in a set of different colors, which is pretty normal, given the age of the target user base. In addition to that, we found it to be incredibly light, both in feel, and actual numbers. Thankfully, there are some features to compliment the looks and feels. First, there is the port selection. In addition to a couple of USB Type-A ports, you get a Thunderbolt 4 connector and an HDMI 2.0 port. So, connecting to two more displays won’t be an issue. Also, this might mean, that you can plug an external graphics card into your device. Speaking of graphics cards, we found it weird that this laptop comes with a Core i5-1135G7, but GPU-Z registers it to have a 96EU version of the Iris Xe Graphics G7, instead of the more crippled 80EU version. Additionally, the memory works in quad-channel mode, delivering a higher bandwidth.
