The boys are back in town. The mobile version of the Ryzen is here. Is this the first time that AMD is eye to eye with Intel? Overall, the answer is a definite yes, although Acer should not have cut corners with the SSD.
80% Acer Swift 3 Ryzen review: Big, basic, but amazingly brawny
Source: It Pro English
Nevertheless, there are loads of other ways to harness that power, and you'd be doing so on a notebook that's both well-built and well-equipped for connectivity and features. If you value performance over portability (and, frankly, battery life), it deserves your attention, and as a demonstration of Ryzen laptops it's a promising start.

Comment

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.

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

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


R5 2500U: Mobile APU that integrates four Zen cores clocked at 2 to 3.6 GHz. The TDP is configurable between 12 to 25 Watt (15 W nominal) and the integrated Radeon RX Vega 8 is clocked at up to 1100 MHz.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


15.60":

15-16 inch is a standard display size for laptops and offers the biggest variety of products.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


2.024 kg:

Usually subnotebooks, ultrabooks and quite lightweight laptops with 12-16 inch display-diagonal weigh as much.


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.


77.9%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
