Reviews for the Acer Swift 5 SF514-55GT-79BM

Acer Swift 5 Pro (SF514-55GT) review – you’re better off disabling the MX350 because Xe Graphics is on fire
Source: Laptop Media English
On the other side, you won’t be able to upgrade your memory, as all of it is soldered to the motherboard. This also means that you would need to pick the 16GB version if you are planning to disable the dGPU. Also, the keyboard and touchpad are average, while the fingerprint reader is very fast and secure.

Comment

NVIDIA GeForce MX350: Successor of the MX250 and most likely a renamed GeForce GTX 1050 based on the Pascal GP107 chip with 640 shaders and a 64 Bit memory bus for GDDR5.

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

i7-1165G7: Tiger Lake based low power quad-core processor for thin and light laptops. The four cores clock around 2.8 - 4.7 GHz. Produced in 10nm+ at Intel.» 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.

Mainly, bigger-sized tablets and convertibles 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.
