Chassis, connectors, screen of Acer Swift 3 SF314-57G-70FK
It is an elegant and discreet design that sports this thin and light Ultrabook with the aluminum frame and silver aluminum magnesium alloy.
This laptop has a biometric reader to authenticate itself by fingerprint recognition, and this via Windows Hello technology, in particular on the operating system.
This is Windows 10 Pro, a more complete edition than classic Windows 10 thanks to its advanced security and network management tools such as BitLocker.
The connection integrated into this PC is able to satisfy a maximum of users because it consists of 1 USB 3.1 Type-C, Wi-Fi ax wireless modules ( more recent and efficient than Wi-Fi ac ) and Bluetooth 5.0 for remote connections and communications, an HDMI video output useful for easily connecting this computer to a monitor or TV for example, an audio port as well as 2 USB compatible both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 , USB 3.0 guarantees transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 peripherals are connected to it.
A backlighting system is fitted to the chiclet keyboard, which is very practical for distinguishing its keys in the event of reduced ambient light.
Thanks to its IPS technology, the screen displays colors more faithful than the average as well as wide horizontal and vertical viewing angles. It is suitable for High Definition content and especially videos thanks to its precise Full HD definition and its 16: 9 format. As it is anti-reflective, the screen also offers better visibility in a bright environment (eg outdoors) than a shiny panel.
Performance, battery life of Acer Swift 3 SF314-57G-70FK
The Acer Swift 3 SF314-57G-70FK is a slim and light compact High Definition laptop for everyday versatile use on the go.
It is easy to transport thanks to its compactness, finesse and lightness. In addition side autonomy, it can hold approximately 7 hours of operation on battery in light use.
To do this, this Ultrabook is built around energy-efficient components such as its SSD storage. It offers a high capacity of 1TB easily rivaling hard drives in this area while being quiet, more energy efficient, more shock resistant and much faster.
The SSD has the advantage of guaranteeing a significantly more responsive and smooth operation than a hard drive. This translates on a daily basis into much faster starts / stops, treatments and launches of software / games, or even by a faster arrival on the cards of online games.
The heart of this thin and light computer is therefore well supported by the SSD. It actually delivers good overall performance capable of satisfying a number of users because it is built around a good amount of 16 GB RAM above the average, which is very appreciable in multitasking and to see it coming. But also a low-power Intel Quad Core i7-1065G7 processor that we tested .
However, it should be borne in mind that to regularly perform work requiring processor resources, it is better to turn to a PC based on a non-low consumption processor.
The Quad Core i7-1065G7 houses within it the Iris Plus Graphics G7 graphics solution which is significantly more efficient than the classic Intel UHD 620 and below a GeForce MX250. Here, the Iris Plus G7 is associated with a dedicated graphics card, the GeForce MX350.
Both of course allow viewing of photos and videos. On-board NVIDIA Optimus technology automatically switches between them in real time, depending on the tasks performed.
The Iris Plus G7 is in practice used as much as possible by Optimus despite its more modest services because it is energy efficient which promotes autonomy. The GeForce MX350 is it activated by Optimus to perform graphics work deemed too heavy for the Iris Plus Graphics G7.
