Chassis, connectors, screen of Acer Swift 3X SF314-510G-745G
It sports an original Steam Blue design and yet relatively discreet with its gray blue color.
This versatile Ultrabook is equipped with good connectivity made up of 1 USB-C, Wi-Fi ax wireless modules ( more recent and efficient than Wi-Fi ac ) and Bluetooth 5.0 for remote connections and communications, a useful HDMI video output for easy connection to a monitor or TV for example, an audio port but also 2 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) guaranteeing transfers made up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if you plug in USB 3.0 devices.
As a biometric reader is integrated, we can authenticate by fingerprint recognition via Windows Hello technology with this PC.
Of course, a backlighting system is fitted to the chiclet keyboard, which is practical for distinguishing its keys in a dimly lit environment.
On the display side, this laptop will be of interest to lovers of High Definition content such as videos because it adopts a Full HD definition as well as a 16: 9 format. As it is anti-reflective, the screen also offers better visibility than a shiny panel in a bright environment (eg outdoors).
It also displays more faithful than average colors as well as large vertical and horizontal viewing angles thanks to its IPS technology.
Performance, battery life of Acer Swift 3X SF314-510G-745G
The Acer Swift 3X SF314-510G-745G is a slim and light compact High Definition laptop designed for everyday versatile use on the go.
Easy to transport thanks to its lightness, its compactness and its finesse, this Ultrabook will interest the most nomadic because in terms of battery life, it can last about 11 hours on battery in light use.
To do this, it relies on energy-efficient components like its SSD storage. Here, we are dealing with a 1 TB SSD, a large capacity that competes without worry with hard disks.
But as a bonus, remember that an SSD is silent, more resistant to shocks, more energy efficient and much faster.
Thanks to the SSD, this thin and light laptop PC is much more responsive and fluid on a daily basis than if it were equipped with a simple hard drive. Thus, for example, we benefit from much faster starts / stops, processing and launching of software, or even faster arrival on the cards of online games.
Because it is possible to play with this Ultrabook since it embeds the Iris Xe Max , the first dedicated graphics card made in Intel.
Thanks to the Iris Xe Max, you can run games on this computer that don\’t require too much graphics resources. The Iris Xe Max is more efficient than the Iris Xe (tested by us) housed within the processor, itself significantly more powerful than the traditional Intel UHD 620.
Deep Link technology is present to combine the capabilities of the Iris Xe to the Iris Xe Max. Thus, processing can be accelerated under software using GPU computing power.
Iris Xe is here more precisely integrated into the Quad Core i7-1165G7, Intel Tiger Lake processor which is low consumption like the good amount of 16 GB RAM.
The general performance provided by this core is able to satisfy many many users.
But not for those who often intend to perform CPU and / or graphics intensive work. In this case, it is better to opt instead for a PC based on a non-low consumption processor and / or an adequate dedicated graphics card.
