Reviews for the Acer Swift 3X SF314-510G-70DW
Acer's Swift 3 series offers decent multimedia laptops. The Swift 3X comes with a dedicated GPU in addition to the iGPU. This provides solid performance for the occasional gaming session as our review of the Acer Swift 3X, which is compelling in many aspects, shows.

With that said, most other aspects of the chassis (the touchpad, the keyboard, the webcam, the speakers, the general build) aren’t quite up to par with other devices you can find at the $1,199 price point. I think you have to really want the GPU. If you don’t, but you’re shopping at this price point and are a fan of the Swift line, the Swift 5 offers better build quality, a thinner and lighter chassis, and a better keyboard and touchpad for just $100 more, with integrated graphics that are still pretty dang good.

With a capable Core i7 CPU, Intel's new discrete graphics, and a brilliant full HD screen that shrugs off glare from ambient light, Acer's Swift 3X is an ambitious ultraportable laptop that would be stellar if not for a few design missteps.

Intel Xe MAX: The Intel Iris Xe MAX (DG1) is a dedicated mobile entry level graphics card based on the Gen 12 architecture (similar to the integrated graphics of the Tiger Lake processors). Compared to the Iris Xe iGPU (e.g. in the i7-1185G7), the Xe MAX offers 4 GB LPDDR4x graphics memory and higher boost clock speeds (up to 1.65 GHz versus 1.35 GHz).
Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.
i7-1165G7: A higher-end, quad-core processor of the Tiger Lake product family. The i7 is designed to be used in ultra-light laptops. It is manufactured on the second-gen 10 nm Intel process marketed as SuperFin and it features the Iris Xe G7 (96 EUs) iGPU running at 400 MHz to 1,300 MHz. The CPU cores run at 2.8 GHz (base clock speed @ 28 W TDP) to 4.7 GHz (single-core Boost frequency). This i7 was the second-fastest CPU of the TGL-UP3 lineup when Intel initially launched the series in 2020.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
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.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.

78.82%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
