Reviews for the Acer Swift 3X

Acer Swift 3X initial review: Intel's discrete graphics has arrived
Source: Pocket Lint English
This 'X' version might see the Swift 3 break free from its once budget shackles - but while its innards, with Intel's Iris Xe Max discrete graphics, are a step ahead, the overall build quality is still missing a trick. Still, there's a lot of potential for the asking price.

Acer Swift 3x laptop delivers an Intel graphics boost for budding creators
Source: CNet English
The Swift 3x is just barely heavier than the regular Swift 3, too, with the whole thing weighing about 3 pounds (1.4 kg). Considering the potential performance here with the new Intel processors, this could be a great option if you need more than integrated graphics and mobility and long battery life.

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.

The CPU cores run at 2.8 GHz (base clock speed @ 28 W TDP) to 4.7 GHz (single-core Boost frequency). The i7-1165G7 was the second-fastest CPU of the TGL-UP3 lineup at launch.» 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.

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.
