75% Acer Swift 3 SF314-57 review (2020 model, Core i5-1035G1 IceLake)
Source: Ultrabook Review English
The Swift 3 FS314-57 is one of the most competitively priced Intel Ice Lake ultraportables of the moment, as well as one of the most compact and lightweight 14-inch options in the $600-$1000 budget. Furthermore, Acer implemented the hardware very well, allowing solid performance in both daily use and in demanding loads, combined with excellent thermals and noise levels. At the same time, though, this 2020 update downgrades the typing experience, battery life and screen quality of the previous Swift 3 SF314-55, which reflects in our overall rating.

85% Acer Swift 3 SF314-57-57BN review: A 2.68-pound laptop with Ice Lake for a mid-tier price
Source: Neowin English
All-in-all, this is a tremendous package for $699. It has a great anti-glare FHD display, a solid keyboard, and impressive productivity performance. If $699 is what you're looking to spend and you don't need dedicated graphics power, I honestly can't think of anything better. You can check it out on Acer.com here.

80% Acer Swift 3 (SF314-57-57BN) review: Thin, light, affordable, and Ice Lake, with Thunderbolt 3 to boot
Source: PC World English
With its slim and light design, efficient (if not barn-burning) quad-core performance, and such extras as a Thunderbolt 3 port and support for the speedy new Wi-Fi 6 standard, the affordably priced Acer Swift 3 is a smart choice for budget-minded productivity mavens who don’t want to be weighed down. We have our quibbles, such as the dim display and middling battery life, but those seem like reasonable compromises given this laptop’s svelte form factor and $700 price tag.

Comment

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.


Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

AMD Vega 8: Integrated graphics card of the Ryzen APUs based on the Vega architecture with 8 CUs (= 512 shaders) and a clock of up to 1100 MHz.

Intel UHD Graphics G1 (Ice Lake 32 EU): Integrated graphics card in Intel Ice-Lake G1 SoCs based on the new Gen. 11 architecture with 32 of the 64 EUs (Execution Units / Shader Cluster). The clock rate depends on the processor model ranging from 300 MHz base to 1050 - 1100 MHz boost. The Ice-Lake chips are produced in the modern 10nm process at Intel produced.

Intel HD Graphics 530: Integrated GPU (GT2) with 24 EUs found on some Skylake CPU models (mobile and desktop).

AMD Vega 6: Integrated graphics card of the Ryzen APUs based on the Vega architecture with 6 CUs (= 384 shaders) and a clock of up to 1.500 MHz.

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

Intel Iris Plus Graphics G7 (Ice Lake 64 EU): Integrated graphics card in Intel Ice-Lake G7 SoCs based on the new Gen. 11 architecture with 64 EUs (Execution Units / Shader Cluster). The clock rate depends on the processor model ranging from 300 MHz base to 1050 - 1100 MHz boost. The Ice-Lake chips are produced in the modern 10nm process at Intel produced.

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


AMD Picasso (Ryzen 3000 APU):

R5 3500U: Mobile Quad-Core APU using Zen+ cores clocked at 2.2 to 3.8 GHz and a Vega graphics card with 8 CUs clocked at up to 1200 MHz.

Intel Ice Lake:

i5-1035G1: Ice-Lake based low power quad core processor for thin and light laptops. Integrated four Sunnycove cores clocked at 1.2 - 3.7 GHz that support Hyperthreading (8 threads). Furthermore, the SoC integrates a Intel UHD Graphics G1 graphics card and Wifi 6 / Thunderbolt partly integrated. The chip is manufactured in the modern 10nm process at Intel.

i7-1065G7: Ice Lake based low power quad-core processor for thin and light laptops. The four cores clock between 1.3 - 3.9 GHz and should offer 18% more IPC (instructions per clock) than the previous generations (and therefore partly close the clock speed gap). Produced in 10nm at Intel.

Intel Core i3:

6100U: Skylake-based ULV dual-core processor for thin notebooks and ultrabooks. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 520 GPU and is manufactured in 14 nm.

AMD Renoir (Ryzen 4000 APU):

R5 4500U: Mobile Hexy-Core APU using six Zen 2 cores clocked at 2.3 to 4 GHz and a Vega graphics card with 6 CUs clocked at up to 1500 MHz. The CPU does not support SMT / Hyperthreading.

1.19 kg:

This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.

1.5 kg:


81%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
