Acer is targeting mobile content creators with the Swift 3x. The Acer Swift 3x is powered by the latest Tiger Lake processors and features the Intel Xe Max dGPU, formerly known as DG1. The Swift 3x also sports a vibrant 14-inch FHD display with a 72% NTSC coverage and will be available from December starting from €899.

Laptops powered by discrete Intel Xe graphics, also known as Xe Max or DG1, are slowly starting to become available. We first saw the Xe Max being featured in the Asus Vivobook Flip 14 and now, we get to see the Acer Swift 3x sport the new dGPU.

The Swift 3x is designed with the needs of those who need to go mobile with their creative workflows. The Swift 3x sports a 14-inch FHD IPS display that offers a screen-to-body ratio of 84% and can cover 72% of the NTSC color gamut. CPU options include the Tiger Lake Core i7-1165G7 and the Core i5-1135G7.

While it is confirmed that the Swift 3x will feature Xe Max discrete graphics, information about the specifics of the GPU itself is scarce although we do know that it will feature 96 execution units (EUs) and 4 GB VRAM. We expect Intel to deliver more info about Xe Max in the coming week.

The rest of the laptop is standard Swift design and includes an assortment of ports such as USB Type-C with Thunderbolt 4, 2x USB 3.2 Gen2, and HDMI-out. Network connectivity is ensured by the Intel Wi-Fi 6 card.

The Acer Swift 3x will be available in Safari Gold and Steam Blue color options and will be available from December this year at prices starting from €899.

I am a cell and molecular biologist and computers have been an integral part of my life ever since I laid my hands on my first PC which was based on an Intel Celeron 266 MHz processor, 16 MB RAM and a modest 2 GB hard disk. Since then, I’ve seen my passion for technology evolve with the times. From traditional floppy based storage and running DOS commands for every other task, to the connected cloud and shared social experiences we take for granted today, I consider myself fortunate to have witnessed a sea change in the technology landscape. I honestly feel that the best is yet to come, when things like AI and cloud computing mature further. When I am not out finding the next big cure for cancer, I read and write about a lot of technology related stuff or go about ripping and re-assembling PCs and laptops.
