Original and nomadic with its discreet Gold design and its 11-hour battery life, the Acer Swift 3X SF314-510G-72F0 is a 14-inch IPS Full HD anti -glare Ultrabook which takes advantage of a dedicated Intel graphics card, the Iris Xe Max capable of running games that are not too greedy. Efficient in everyday use thanks to its Quad Core i7-1165G7 Tiger Lake Intel processor and its good amount of 16 GB RAM, this thin, light and compact laptop PC benefits from fast SSD storage with a large capacity of 1 TB but also a backlit chiclet keyboard, a biometric reader as well as a Wi-Fi ax and USB-C connection.

Chassis, connectors, screen of Acer Swift 3X SF314-510G-72F0
With its thin and light compact light gold Safari Gold chassis, it sports a design that is both elegant, discreet and nonetheless original.
The connectivity built into this versatile Ultrabook is good, including Wi-Fi ax wireless modules ( newer and more efficient than Wi-Fi ac ) and Bluetooth 5.0 for remote connections and communications, a practical HDMI video output for connect it easily to a monitor or TV for example, an audio port, 1 USB-C as well as 2 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) guaranteeing transfers taking place up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 devices are plugged into it.
You can authenticate yourself on this laptop PC by biometric recognition via Windows Hello technology thanks to the integrated fingerprint reader.
The chiclet keyboard of course benefits from a practical backlighting system to distinguish them correctly in a poorly light environment.
Thanks to its IPS technology, the screen reproduces colors more faithfully than average and has wide viewing angles, both horizontally and vertically. It is also very suitable for displaying videos and more generally High Definition content because it adopts a 16: 9 format as well as a Full HD definition. Anti-reflective coating, the screen also offers better visibility in a bright environment (eg outdoors) than a shiny panel.
Thanks to Acer BlueLightShield technology, the blue light that the screen emits is attenuated by up to 30%.
Performance, battery life of Acer Swift 3X SF314-510G-72F0
The Acer Swift 3X SF314-510G-72F0 is aimed at those who wish to equip themselves with a thin and light compact High Definition laptop PC for everyday versatile use on the go.
It stands out by the fact that it integrates the first dedicated graphics card from Intel, the Iris Xe Max , slightly more efficient than the Iris Xe (which we tested) integrated into the processor, itself significantly above of the classic Intel UHD 620.
In practice, Deep Link technology can capitalize on the capacities of the Iris Xe associated with those of the Iris Xe Max to accelerate the processing operations taking advantage of the GPU computing power.
With the Iris Xe Max and the Iris Xe, you can play titles that are not too greedy in graphic resources but also of course watch photos and videos.
As it does not consume much energy, the Iris Xe is used to the maximum in order to consume as little energy as possible to promote battery life.
And it pays off since this versatile laptop can last about 11 hours on battery in light use. It is all the more appreciable that thanks to its compactness, its lightness and its delicacy, this Ultrabook is easy to transport which will interest the nomads.
The Iris Xe is more precisely integrated within the Quad Core i7-1165G7, a Tiger Lake low consumption processor here coupled with a good amount of 16 GB RAM.
The general performance delivered by this core is capable of satisfying many users.
However, it will be better to opt for a PC with a non-low consumption processor and / or an adequate dedicated graphics card if the objective is often to perform heavy work in processor and / or graphics resources, but this will be to the detriment battery life and transportability.
In any case, the on-board SSD storage will appeal to demanding users with its large capacity of 1 TB which easily rivals what hard drives offer.
And all the more so since an SSD is silent while being more energy efficient than a hard drive, more resistant to shocks and much faster.
Because of this fact the SSD guarantees a much better fluidity and reactivity on a daily basis than a simple hard disk. Thus, we benefit from much faster starts / stops, processing and launches of software, or even a faster arrival on the cards of online games.
