Chassis, connectors, screen of the Acer Swift 5 SF514-55TA-70D9
It has an original design with its very light green color case and rises slightly forward when opened.
This versatile Ultrabook is equipped with a good connection including 1 USB 4 Type-C Thunderbolt 4, a useful HDMI video output to easily connect it to a TV or a monitor for example, wireless Bluetooth 5.1 and Wi-Fi modules ax ( more efficient and recent than Wi-Fi ac ) to communicate and connect remotely, 1 audio port without forgetting 2 USB (compatible with USB 2.0 and USB 3.0), USB 3.0 guaranteeing transfers carried out up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if a USB 3.0 device is plugged into it.
Via Windows Hello technology, you can authenticate by biometric recognition because of an integrated fingerprint reader.
The chiclet keyboard is of course adorned with a backlighting system for the keys to better distinguish them in a dimly lit environment.
With its 100% sRGB and IPS characteristics, the screen displays colors more faithful than the average with important viewing angles, both horizontal and vertical. It is well suited to High Definition content such as videos due to its Full HD definition and its 16: 9 format.
Performance, battery life of the Acer Swift 5 SF514-55TA-70D9
The Acer Swift 5 SF514-55TA-70D9 is aimed at those looking for a very light compact laptop for everyday versatile use on the go.
It is equipped with the very first Intel mobile dedicated graphics card, the Iris Xe Max, a little more efficient than Intel Iris Xe integrated into the processor.
Via Deep Link technology, the capabilities of the Iris Xe can be combined with those of the Iris Xe Max to accelerate processing taking advantage of GPU computing power, such as multimedia processing.
Whether with the Iris Xe or the Iris Xe Max, you can look at photos and videos of course, but also run games that do not require too much graphics resources, in greater numbers with the Iris Xe Max.
The Iris Xe is integrated into the low-power Intel Tiger Lake i7-1165G7 Quad Core processor, here associated with a good amount of 16 GB RAM.
The general performance provided by this core is able to satisfy a number of users. But it is better to turn to a PC based on a non-low consumption processor and / or an adequate dedicated graphics card if one often wishes to carry out heavy work in terms of processor and / or graphics resources.
That said in this case, the battery life is negatively impacted while here, we can bet on about 9 hours of battery operation in light use for this Ultrabook easy to carry thanks to its lightness (weight less than 1 kg!) , its compactness and finesse.
In terms of storage, we find an onboard SSD that is silent while being more robust than a hard drive, more energy efficient and much faster.
In addition here the SSD offers a large capacity of 1 TB rivaling what hard drives offer, enough to accommodate multiple files and software.
