Reviews for the Acer Swift 3 SF314-56G-78GZ

Acer Swift 3 (2019) review: This midrange notebook PC hides Nvidia graphics power
Source: Good Gear Guide English
Acer's Swift 3 is one of many notebooks we've tested to offer a Core i5 or Core i7, but its real differentiator is the downclocked MX150, which can't compare to the faster-clocked GeForce MX150 chips inside some of its competition. You won’t notice any dropoff in day-to-day use, however, and stepping up to a meatier discrete GPU for gaming can cost several hundred dollars more. (Alternatively, you can look at discounted notebooks that feature older 8th-generation chips, too, but those are still over $1,000.)

Acer Swift 3 (SF314-56) review – beautiful performer let down by unsatisfactory keyboard
Source: Laptop Media English
Acer Swift 3 (SF314-56G) is one of the most beautiful laptops on the market. Its brushed aluminum finish and polished chamfered edges help it “shine” above the competition. Well… at least in this aspect. One of the main target groups for this device is business people and students. Believe us, it is definitely going to ramp up your reputation points in the society.

NVIDIA GeForce MX150: Pascal GP108 based laptop graphics card and mobile version of the desktop GeForce GT 1030. Offers 384 shader cores and usually 2 GB GDDR5 with a 64 Bit memory bus. Manufactured in 14nm.

With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  


i7-8565U: Whiskey Lake based low power quad-core processor (technically identical to Kaby Lake but produced in a further improved 14nm++ process). The four cores are clocked between 1.8 and 4.6 GHz (Turbo Boost) and support HyperThreading.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


14":

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

1.6 kg:

This weight is typical for very big tablets, subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 11-13 inch display-diagonal.


Acer: The company was founded under the name of Multitech in Taiwan in 1976 and renamed to Acer or Acer Group in 1987. The product range includes, for example, laptops, tablets, smartphones, desktops, monitors and televisions. Gateway Inc. and Packard Bell also belong to the Group and sell their own laptops.

While Acer still had the third largest global market share in the notebook segment in 2008, it ranked 6th in 2016 with a market share of 6% after they had continuously lost market shares.

There are dozens of Acer laptop reviews per month, the ratings are average (as of 2016). Gateway, which has an own laptop line-up, has also belonged to the Acer Group since 2007.
