Acer Swift X: It’s lightweight powerful!

September 14, 2021

Now in the UAE

First announced during Acer’s global press conference in May 2021, the Swift X ultra-thin notebook takes power to the next level and boasts an AMD Ryzen 5000 Series Mobile Processor with Zen 3 architecture along with an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 Laptop GPU. And now the newest member of Acer’s popular line of Swift notebooks has officially been launched across the Middle East.

Discreet looking yet powerful, the Acer Swift X (SFX14-41G) notebook, a 2021 reddot winner, represents a new segment within the Swift portfolio, the first of its series to come powered with discrete graphics, all at an impressive 1.39 kg. Its NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 Laptop GPU, combined with up to an AMD Ryzen 7 5700U Mobile Processor and 16 GB of RAM offers creative professionals such as video editors or photographers plenty of power. True to the Swift family, all this hardware has been fitted into a metal chassis just 17.9 mm thin.

The productivity capabilities of the Acer Swift X are further enhanced by up to 1 TB of SSD storage, allowing all of a user’s work to be taken with them, and a fast-charging 59W battery that offers up to 17 hours of use.

The Swift X features a 14-inch FHD IPS display with an 85.7% screen-to-body ratio, 300 nits brightness and 100% sRGB—enough for editing 4K video or getting photographs just right. A plentiful array of ports including full-function USB Type-C ensure ultra-fast data transfer, video streaming and battery charging, facilitating this process, while Wi-Fi 6 means faster overall connectivity.

The notebook also includes a fingerprint sensor for more secure sign ins through Windows Hello, AI-enhanced noise suppression for smoother video calls, and Acer BlueLightShield technology to help lessen eye strain during long editing sessions.

Built with heavier work sessions in mind, the new Swift X leverages a fan with fifty-nine 0.3 mm blades and a pair of D6 copper heat pipes to optimize its thermal efficiency. A number of other innovations also improve the notebook’s cooling efficiency: an air inlet keyboard design expels around 8-10% more heat than a standard keyboard, and a stereo ring with an inclined plane sitting along the top of the fan delivers up to a 5-10% improvement in airflow.

The Acer Swift X (SFX14-41G) is now available in shade ‘Prodigy Pink’ in the UAE for AED 4.499 with all leading retailers.
