Reviews for the Acer Swift 3 SF315-41-R6J9
Ryzen up. Acer has updated their popular Swift 3 laptop with AMD's most powerful mobile APU, the Ryzen 7 2700U with RX Vega 10 graphics. Unfortunately, the system fails to live up to its full potential.

The combination of AMD’s Ryzen mobile, along with a good design, and excellent specifications for the price, really do make the Acer Swift 3 an appealing proposition. We’ve never tested a laptop at this price point with a 512 GB SSD before, and the 8 GB of DDR4 is very welcome as well at this price. If you can get over the poor quality keyboard, there’s a lot of laptop for the dollar here, and the ability to actually run real games is a welcome change.

AMD Vega 10: Integrated graphics card of the Ryzen APUs based on the Vega architecture with 10 CUs (=640 shaders) and a clock of up to 1300 MHz.
Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.
R7 2700U: Mobile Quad-Core APU using Zen cores clocked at 2.2 to 3.8 GHz and a Vega graphics card with 10 CUs clocked at up to 1300 MHz.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
15-inch display variants are the standard and are used for more than half of all laptops.
The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, often allows high resolutions and thus offers rich details on the screen, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact - simply the standard compromise.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
