Acer Swift X SFX14 with GTX 1650 in review: Swift Ryzen laptop

In the fast lane thanks to AMD. Acer's 14-inch notebook has the makings of a mobile gaming ultrabook. While 2020 Turing graphics is not the latest and greatest, it offers moderate gaming power paired with the Ryzen 5000 in the 19mm thick case. The build quality is solid and the display surprisingly good.

With the Swift X SFX14-41G, Acer addresses prospective buyers who are looking for a lightweight office device with decent gaming performance. These users will shy away from a Swift 3 SF314-511, which is the mostly similar Intel version of the 14-inch laptop. With Iris Xe graphics, the latter is much too tame. Although the manufacturer has upped the ante with the Swift 3X SF314-510G, the overall performance of the dedicated Iris Xe MAX graphics is disappointing for gamers and in most cases insufficient for Full HD gaming with high settings.

Instead, Acer is trying to impress its target audience with the GTX 1650 and even though the dGPU from March 2020 is not exactly brand new anymore, it remains near the bottom of our 2nd performance tier (4 tiers total, 1=best) and on par with the older GeForce GTX 1060 Max-Q. As this review will show, it also leaves AMD's and Intel's iGPUs in the dust.

The otherwise identical variant Swift X SFX14-41G-R1S3 with a GeForce RTX 3050 Ti shows that we have not yet reached the limits. We have not yet had the chance to review this particular unit, although we are currently trying to get a hold of a sample.

There are more thin laptops with gaming aspirations yet to come with Acer announcing its Swift X14 in January 2022. Aside from 12th gen Intel processors (Alder Lake), the X14 also features an RTX 3050 Ti. The 14-inch IPS panel will be upgraded to support a resolution of 2240 x 1400 pixels.

Case - Swift X with Solid Craftsmanship

Acer has opted to use metal for both the top and the bottom shell as well as the lid. While the sleek, slim aluminum case is not particularly flashy, there are a few premium highlights, particularly when also taking into account the solid haptics of the edges and corners.

The chassis comes with a matte silver finish, contrasted by black plastic bezels and surrounded by a polished frame. The lid and the rear area near the hinges are dark blue.

The clearances are even and there are no material protrusions. The Acer reveals no rigidity issues and the base unit is resistant to twisting from the corners. In the same scenario, the lid slightly yields, although this does not distort the image on the display.

The dual hinges and the display, which slides under the chassis when opened, are an important detail. This lifts the base unit up to improve the airflow courtesy of the flat intakes on the bottom.

We were pleased with the firm hinges, which reliably prevent teetering when transporting the device. The display can be opened up to a maximum angle of 130 degrees. The lid can be opened one-handedly without holding the base unit in place.

The Envy 14 is the biggest candidate in our size comparison overall and although it is not thicker than our Swift X, it is siignifiicantly deeper. The Swift 3 SF314-511 is even thinner than our test device at 16.5 vs. 19 mm (0.65 vs. 0.75 in). Additionally, it boasts an incredibly low weight of only 1.2 vs. 1.4 kilograms (2.65 vs. 3.09 lbs). A dGPU and the associated copper for the heatpipes do seem to factor into the equation.

Communication

The MediaTek MT7921 Wi-Fi and Bluetooth module is a rare sight, even though it was designed for Ryzen processors by AMD and MediaTek. With Wi-Fi 6 2x2 and Bluetooth 5.2, it should be able to match Intel's AX200. As our review shows, however, this is not the case and the download speeds are a small catastrophy.

With just 183 Mbps under ideal conditions (no other Wi-Fi devices in proximity, distance of one meter between the laptop and the server) even after repeating the measurements at different times during the day, the download speeds are very poor. By contrast, the chip is much faster when transmitting data at up to about 950 Mbps. While this is not exactly a record either, it is at least a solid basis. Due to the discrepancy between the download and upload speeds, we suspect a driver problem that may be fixed in the future. During our testing, we found ourselves wondering where within the closed-off aluminum lid the antennas are hidden. Note that this cannot be the reason for the low score, since the upload speeds would otherwise be just as low.

Webcam

The 720p camera does the bare minimum: Washed-out colors, poor sharpness and a big deltaE color deviation. However, competitors do not fare better in this category with severe image noise being present on all models.

Security

The swift gamer features a fingerprint sensor and a Kensington Lock. The webcam is not accompanied by an IR camera. Thus, logging in via facial recognition is not possible. We prefer the fingerprint reader's integration below the arrow keys to those integrated into a touchpad. Here, putting a finger on suffices.

Accessories

Aside from the usual warranty information and a quick-start guide, the laptop only includes the 90-watt power supply.

90-watt power supply - using a type-C PSU is also possible, although it has to be rated for a similar output.

Maintenance

The Swift X does not come with a maintenance hatch. Accessing the components is simple regardless. After loosening all the screws on the bottom, the bottom plate can be removed with a flat spudger or another object with a sharp edge. All of the RAM is fixed and there is no slot for expansion.

Keyboard

Acer has equipped its Swift X with a backlit chiclet keyboard with one brightness setting. The flat, smooth keys offer shallow travel and a somewhat vague actuation point. The feedback is decent and the keyboard area does not yield anywhere while typing. Overall, Acer has created a keyboard that allows for quick typing during daily use. However, it still does not quite feel like a premium model. For a better feedback, the travel and actuation point would have had to be more distinct.

Touchpad

The clickpad supports multi touch and stretches itself across an area of 10.5 x 6.5 cm (4.13 x 2.56 in). Thus, user have a lot of space to work with for gestures. The smooth surface has good gliding properties with barely any friction. The pad is responsive all the way into the corners. Furthermore, it offers shallow travel, a distinct actuation point and audible, but only moderately loud clicks.

Subpixel array of the AUO panel

The non-glossy 14-inch screen of the Acer Swift X sports a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. It has an excellent contrast ratio (2194:1), setting itself far apart from its competitors.

The maximum brightness (412 nits) is excellent and higher than that of all its competitors - with the exception of the HP Envy 14. The luminance in battery mode remains the same, provided AMD Vari Bright has been disabled in the Radeon settings. Positive: The display does not suffer from PWM flickering under any circumstances.

* ... smaller is better

Ex-factory, the screen's color reproduction and accuracy are decent. With a deltaE-2000 color deviation of 2.46, it falls within the ideal range (deltaE of less than 3). The display does not suffer from a blue tint. On the contrary: 99 % of sRGB is covered. In this aspect, IPS competitors do not fare worse with the exception of the Lenovo IdeaPad 5 14ALC05.

After our calibration attempt, the Swift is even better and reaches a grayscale and color deltaE of 0.86 and 1.41, respectively. These values indicate an excellent IPS panel that benefits from a calibration.

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
32 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 16 ms rise
↘ 16 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 81 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (23.3 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
49 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 28 ms rise
↘ 21 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.692 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 80 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (36.8 ms).

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM not detected

In comparison: 52 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 21792 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

Outdoors, the readability under sunlight benefits from both the non-glare coating and the 400-nit brightness. In battery mode, the luminance does not decrease when VariBright is disabled in the Radeon tool. VariBright decreases the brightness according to the ambient lighting conditions. Since VariBright was enabled for the following two pictures, the screen appears dim.

Performance - AMD's Ryzen in the Fast Lane

AMD meets Nvidia
AMD meets Nvidia

The multimedia laptop Swift X SFX14-41G is suitable for various workloads. Aside from day-to-day webbrowsing, it is also fairly well suited to gaming thanks to its GeForce GTX 1650. Aside from our configuration, which includes a AMD Ryzen 5 5500U, 16 GB of RAM, and a 1-TB NVMe SSD, there are other configurations that for example include a GeForce RTX 3050 Ti or RTX 3050 - without Ti. All Swift X SFX14-41G come with an dGPU on board that can be disabled to rely on the Radeon RX GPU instead. The base configuration with 8 GB of RAM (soldered, non-upgradeable) and a 512-GB M.2 SSD is currently available for just 800 Euros (~880 USD), a compelling offer.

Test Conditions

Acer does not provide a performance control tool. Thus, only the windows power profiles are available for customization. We used "best performance" for the performance benchmarks and "power saver" for the battery tests.

Processor

The Ryzen 5 5500U inside the Swift X has a clock rate of up to 4 GHz. The hexa-core CPU from early 2021 is not based on AMD's latest Zen-3 architecture. Despite its smaller L3 cache, the processor achieves solid performance results, although it falls behind 11th gen Intel processors in terms of the single-thread performance. When it comes to the multi-thread performance, the Ryzen chip tops the scores of i5 and i7 alike. On top of that, the Ryzen 5 5500U in our test device beats its own average by 14 %. In short: The AMD APU performs unusually well in the Acer system.

The performance is largely dependant on the TDP setting and the cooling solution. During our Cinebench tests, we recorded a maximum CPU package power of 45 watts, which likely represents the PL2/short burst. This level can only be maintained for a few seconds, after which it drops to 37 watts. After four more loops, the clock speeds decrease for a final package power of 27 watts. This level can be maintained indefintely, even in battery mode.

With 1329 points in the first and 1182 points in the sixth loop, the performance dropoff is low (10 %). The Lenovo Lenovo IdeaPad 5 14ALC05 performs slightly worse with the same chip. The Core i7-1165G7 inside the Swift 3X is significantly slower compared to our Swift X. The overall performance rating is also above average for our test device.

System Performance

Our test sample comes in last in PCMark with the exception of the Digital Content Creation subscore, where it is - likely due to its GTX 1650 - able to claim first place together with the HP Envy 14-eb0010nr. With a discrepancy of 5 to 16 %, the differences are marginal and each device in our comparison make for good allround office laptops. When comparing these models, the more significant differences in terms of the input devices and displays should be the deciding factors.

DPC Latencies

In our LatencyMon test, the Swift's latencies are increased due to the DirectX kernel driver. As a result, the 14-inch laptop may not be suitable for realtime applications and software with similar requirements. The measurements are based on the driver configuration available at the time of testing.

Storage Solution

The Western Digital drive with a gross capacity of one terabyte represents the highest configuration available from Acer. However, there is still room for more: The storage can be upgraded further via the secondary M.2 slot with a length of 80 mm. While the WDC PC SN530 produces relatively average results, it beats its Micron counterpart in the Acer Swift 3X SF314 by a significant margin. However, the Samsung SSD inside the Swift 3 SF314 (Intel, iGPU) is the only truly fast model. This is unfortunate, since a very fast SSD would have been a better match for the performance aspirations of the remaining hardware.

Note: Manufacturers may equip the same model with different SSD types. There is no way to know whether you will receive a WDC, Micron, or Samsung model.

More information on other storage devices and their performance characteristics can be found in our HDD/SSD table.
