Chassis, connectors, screen of the Acer Swift SF316-51-70UU

Acer adds a new model to its Swift 3 with the Acer Swift SF316-51-70UU, an elegant 16-inch that recovers all the aesthetic codes that make the identity of the series, namely a sober and uniform gray aesthetic around an aluminum-magnesium alloy case resistant to pressure and scratches and light at the same time. Acer eschews any aesthetic frills like shiny chamfered edges to return to a more understated (let’s not say ordinary) look.

A visible effort has been made on the format and on the weight of the ultrabook for a 16 inches since the Acer Swift 3 SF314-SF316-51-70UU weighs only 1.7 kg on the scale for 15.9 mm d ‘thickness. These are measurements worthy of an ultrabook and which allow you to enjoy a rather convincing borderless screen.

Indeed, the screen is surrounded by a particularly thin frame on the sides and quite discreet on the top (enough to slide the webcam) and the bottom. It provides a dense Full HD definition (1920 x 1080 px) which allows you to get the best of High Definition content while the IPS panel promotes immersion with a perfectly readable display whatever the angle of approach and a balanced colorimetry. Good news, it is based on a ComfyView matte panel , a plus if you have to work outdoors or travel by train for example.

The keyboard is backlit in white, making it easier to type in a dark environment. It has a numeric keypad.

For its part, the connection can disappoint given the size of the chassis. There are only three USB ports including two USB 3.2 and a versatile USB Type-C which, with the new generation of Tiger Lake processor, goes to the USB 4 version with Thunderbolt 4 . There is also an HDMI 2.0 output as well as a biometric reader (under the keyboard, on the right) to secure your data and authenticate you to your session with a simple touch of your finger but the SD card reader is not on the program. . The connection modules are state-of-the-art with Wifi 6 (802.11AX) and Bluetooth 5.0.

Performance, battery life of the Acer Swift 3 SF316-51-70UU

Inside the ultrabook, we don’t have just any processor. It is an 11th generation Intel Core (Tiger Lake-H) which officiates, the Core i7-11370H . Contrary to what we are used to in this type of machine, it is a Quad Core-H processor (not low consumption -U). Thus, the Core i7-11370H has a high base frequency of 3.3 GHz (compared to 2.6 GHz for the Core i7-10750H) and a high Turbo Boost speed of 4.8 GHz, which makes it perfectly capable of high performance tasks. Especially since this 11th gen of processor contains the integrated graphics chip Iris Xe, Intel’s most efficient at this time, far from the UHD 630. Overall, this translates into a complete management of the versatile use made up of video editing, 3D rendering, programming or parallelization, with complex calculations .

Obviously, we will not talk about game at this level, if it is not on a small scale. There is indeed no dedicated graphics card inside this Acer Swift 3 SF316-51-70UU. But if gamers won’t find what they are looking for, Photoshop, Lightroom (lightweight), and other graphics and development software users should have the resource.

In support, the 16 GB RAM provides everything you need in fluidity for multitasking. A good thing since the RAM is welded and not upgradeable inside this Swift 3.

For its part, the storage is entrusted to a 512 GB NVMe PCIe SSD which will significantly enhance the overall responsiveness of the system on a daily basis. Overall quieter, more robust and more energy efficient than a mechanical disk, it allows Windows to achieve a remarkable level of fluidity with short load times and a performance without latencies. What’s more, its capacity is nothing short of ridiculous and can accommodate a good chunk of your game library although some may not find it sufficient. In this case, you can perfectly open the PC and upgrade the components, a second M.2 port is free.

Last important point for nomads, the Acer Swift 3 SF316-51-70UU is ready for mobility thanks to its 56Whr battery which allows nearly 9 hours of battery life in current use with active WiFi. This is ideal for working a whole day without worrying about the proximity of a power outlet.
