Source: Geek Culture
On testing, the Swift Edge scored an overall 4910 (8,801 for essentials, 6,277 for productivity, and 5,814 for digital content creation) in the PCMark 10 Professional benchmark tests, which shows that it can run most office applications without a stutter. The Acer also managed a score of 19,279 on 3DMark Night Raid, 5,250 on 3DMark Fire Strike and 2,170 on Time Spy. While it is not designed as a gaming laptop, the Swift Edge does allow for some 3D gaming at low visual settings. On a full charge, the Acer laptop lasted 8 hours 4 minutes on the PCMark battery life test, before it fizzled. On typical office usage, it should last more than half a day before you need to find a power point to plug in the power adapter.
