Chassis, connectivity, screen of the Acer Swift 3 SF314-41-R1X6
The case of the Acer Swift 3 SF314-41 is probably taken from the Swift 3 SF314-56 of 2018 since the aesthetics and dimensions are identical with its small weight of 1.5 kg and its beautiful fineness of 17.95 mm. thickness . This allows you to enjoy a rather convincing borderless screen.
The Swift 3 SF314-41-R1X6 is made of metal with a brushed effect on the back of the lid and inside and dressed in an original light blue color . Polished chamfered edges highlight the lid, base, touchpad and biometric reader to serve the look. Note also that the central hinge allows to open the screen 180 degrees , a plus to install comfortably on the lap. The keyboard is backlit in white and makes typing easier in a dark environment.
Then let\’s talk about the screen which is highlighted by side edges of 6.3 mm(thicker at the top and bottom). It provides a dense Full HD definition (1920 x 1080 px) that allows you to make the most of High Definition content while the IPS panel favors immersion with a perfectly readable display regardless of the angle of approach and a balanced colorimetry. Good news, it operates a ComfyView matt slab , a plus if you are working outdoors or traveling by train for example.
For its part, the connector accepts all the necessary in standard formats. There are four USB ports including two USB 3.0 and a versatile USB Type-C , an SD card reader, an HDMI output and a biometric reader (under the keyboard, right) to secure your data and authenticate to your session with a simple touch of the finger. Wifi AC and Bluetooth 4.2 modules are also on the menu.
Performance, autonomy of the Acer Swift 3 SF314-41-R1X6
To serve the performance, the ultrabook contains an AMD processor of last generation Quad Core Ryzen 5 3500U low consumption. Announced at the beginning of the year, it succeeds the Ryzen 5 2500U with a gain of more and less 10% in terms of power, what to come to a level close to a Quad Core i5-8265U. In fact, the current use is well supported and you can even tackle the missions of photo editing, video editing and light calculation without shaking too much. Especially since the APU is supported by 8 GB of RAM , a total adequate to navigate with fluidity in multitasking .
The AMD Radeon Vega 8 chipset integrated in the processor will take care of the graphic rendering, namely that it holds the high drama to the Intel UHD 620 chip of Whiskey Lake GPUs. While the latter is similar to a GeForce MX110 in terms of performance, the Vega 8 will match a GeForce MX130 and allow a little game definition and average details (1366 x 768 px).
Storage is also central to this configuration since it is entrusted to a dedicated 512 GB SSD . Overall quieter, more robust, and more energy efficient than a mechanical drive, it allows Windows to achieve a remarkable level of fluidity with short load times and latency-free operation. To avoid spoiling, its storage capacity is generous for a SSD (512 GB) and may contain a large portion of your toy library without necessarily resort to an external solution.
Let\’s end with the autonomy that should accommodate the average battery (48 Whr) and total about 7 hours in Internet browsing with active WiFi.
