Thanks to its IPS technology, the screen benefits from significant vertical and horizontal viewing angles. In addition, it lends itself very well to the display of High Definition content such as videos due to its precise Full HD definition and its 16/9th format. As it is anti-reflective, the screen is also more readable in bright environments (e.g. outside) than a shiny slab.

Performance, battery life of the Acer Swift 3 SF314-43-R216

The Acer Swift 3 SF314-43-R216 is a compact High Definition laptop designed for versatile everyday mobile use.

Many users will be satisfied with the overall performance delivered by this versatile thin and light laptop because it relies on a good amount of 16 GB RAM associated with an AMD APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) Ryzen 5 5500U low-power Lucienne Hexa Core processor.

Those who occasionally perform multimedia processing using RAM and multi-core will appreciate this heart, for example for photo editing or video conversion.

However, it is better to turn instead to a computer with a non-low-power processor and / or a dedicated graphics card appropriate if we plan to often carry out work consuming processor and / or graphics resources.

Nevertheless, this will have an impact on weight, heating and autonomy. However, the latter represents a major asset of this laptop because it can last about 11 hours on battery in light use. It’s all the more interesting because with its lightness, compactness and finesse, this mobile PC is as easy to carry as an Ultrabook.

No dedicated graphics card is embedded here, which will not suit gamers. Nevertheless, you can watch photos and videos but also play light titles, thanks to the Radeon Vega 7 graphics solution housed in the Ryzen 5.

SSD storage clearly enhances responsiveness and fluidity on a daily basis compared to a simple hard drive. Thanks to the SSD, processing, starting/stopping and launching software are much faster, for example, and you can get to the cards of online games faster.

It must be said that an SSD is much faster than a hard drive but also less energy-consuming, more robust and silent. It is a 512 GB SSD that is integrated here, capacity in line with the standard of hard drives. However, in the event that you need more space, you can use an external storage unit. Opting for a USB-C/USB 3.0 device is then an interesting solution to obtain fast transfers.
