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.

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.

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.

Acer Swift 3 SF314-42-R1PR

The Acer Swift 3 SF314-42 is the latest device to join the Acer family. This new 14-inch laptop has AMD’s brand new Ryzen 7 4700U APU on board that lacks neither CPU nor GPU performance. Being a chic and compact laptop, the Swift 3 SF314-42 succeeds the SF314-41, which was released by AMD last year with the AMD Picasso APU on board. The SF314-42 has been equipped with a Renoir APU, the Ryzen 7 4700U, which has been equipped with Zen 2 architecture that provides a definite increase in performance compared to the Zen+ architecture found in the Ryzen 3000 Picasso APUs. The CPU part of the Ryzen 7 4700U comprises an eight-core processor that works at a base clock speed of 2.0 GHz. The processor can turbo up to 4.2GHz, but it does not support Simultaneous MultiThreading (SMT), which simply means that it can only execute one thread per core.

Just like its predecessor, the Acer Swift 3 SF314-42 received a rather stylish and slim metal case as its overall design. The chassis has a matte silver finish that is contrasted with a black plastic display frame. Due to the fact that there is no maintenance hatch, accessing the laptop’s internal components would require some disassembly. Apart from that, the display is held in place by pleasingly tight hinges, which allows the display to be opened up to 180-degrees. In addition, it should be noted that any pressure applied to the back of the lid does not cause any distortion on the display. The 14-inch screen of the Acer Swift 3 works natively at 1920 x 1080 pixels.

In terms of its connectivity, the Swift 3 SF314-42 has been equipped with two USB Type-A ports, with one operating at the USB-2.0 standard and the other at the USB-3.2 Gen1 standard. In addition, there is a USB Type-C port that utilizes the latest USB-3.2 Gen2 standard. This port supports both DisplayPort and USB Power Delivery (PD) which simply means that the device can output audio and video even while being charged. There is also an HDMI port and a power connector.

As far as the keyboard is concerned, the Acer Swift 3 SF314-42 has been equipped with a backlit chiclet keyboard. The flat and smooth keys offer a short drop with a rather clear pressure point. There is also an acceptable level of resistance in the keys. However, the keyboard gives way a little while typing, but not to an excessive extent. The single-stage backlight can be controlled using a function key. As for the touchpad, it is multi-touch and occupies a rather large space, thus offering plenty of room for performing gesture controls. The touchpad has a smooth finish, which makes it quite easy to glide across its surface. Overall, the Acer Swift 3 SF314-42 deserves a user’s consideration due to its excellent features. But again, the choice of owning one is rather subjective, depending on the individual’s need and choice.

80% Acer Swift 3 AMD Ryzen 5 4500U Review – Affordable And Reliable

The Acer Swift 3 AMD Ryzen 4500U is a solid productivity laptop. It has a good build quality, it’s really light, and the performance is good for this type of laptop. I’m personally amazed that the battery life is great on this, and I am now true believer than you can have good battery life even with AMD Ryzen laptops.

At this price point, picking a laptop is all about priorities and compromises. The Swift 3 SF314-57 if your priorities are portability, power, and ports. It’s not if you care more about design, keyboard & trackpad performance, or display quality.

When everything is tallied up, the Acer Swift 3 definitely ends up in credit – we do have a few reservations about the laptop, but in general we think it's one of the best options you've got at this size and price point, continuing a strong run of Acer Swift laptops.

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 R4000: 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.

Intel UHD Graphics 620: Integrated GPU (GT2, 24 EUs) found on some Kaby-Lake-Refresh CPU models (15 W ULV series). Technically identical to the previous Kaby-Lake GPU called HD Graphics 620.

AMD Vega 7: Integrated graphics card of the Ryzen APUs based on the Vega architecture with 7 CUs (= 448 shaders) and a clock of up to 1600 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.

NVIDIA GeForce MX250: Successor of the MX150 and still based on the same Pascal GP108 chip (similar to the desktop GT 1030) but with higher clock speeds. Available in two versions, a normal 25 Watt version and a low power version with 10 Watt TDP and reduced performance. The 25 Watt version e.g. offers a 21% higher boost clock than the old MX150 leading to a 5% performance gain.

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.

R7 4700U: Mobile Octa-Core APU using Zen 2 cores clocked at 2 to 4 GHz and a Vega graphics card with 7 CUs clocked at up to 1600 MHz. Compared to the faster 4800U, the 4700U offers a slightly lower boost clock speed and does not support SMT / Hyperthreading.

Intel Comet Lake:

i5-10210U: Comet Lake based low power quad-core processor (technically identical to Whiskey Lake and still produced in 14nm++). The CPU cores can clock between 1.6 and 4.2 GHz (all 4 cores 3.9 GHz max.) with HyperThreading (8 threads). The integrated memory controller supports DDR4-2666 and using cTDP up/down the performance can be adjusted by the OEM (10 - 25 Watt possible, 15W default). Compared to the faster i5-10510U, the level 3 cache was reduced from 8 to 6 MB.

1.1 kg:

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

1.6 kg:

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


81.8%: 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.
