Acer Swift 5: New Edition Is The First Notebook To Use A Tiger Lake Processor
Acer has given the Acer Swift 5 a new edition at its digital press event and this is already being announced with 11th generation Intel processors.
At the next @ Acer event, which exclusively presented the company’s new product portfolio online, a Swift 5 cheated again this year. We have known this notebook for several years and in 2020 there will also be a new edition, which looks different, but above all has a special feature under the hood: The 14-inch notebook is already called an Intel processor by “Tiger Lake” 11th generation and a GPU based on the new Xe architecture. The press release also states:
Alternatively, the model can also be equipped with an NVIDIA® GeForce® MX350 GPU. 1 TB high-speed PCle SSD storage ensures fast loading times on up to 16 GB LPDDRAX.
The 14-inch IPS touch panel offers FullHD resolution, is up to 300 nits bright and is protected with Corning Gorilla glass, which has been specially developed to reduce the growth of odor and stain-causing microorganisms on the touchscreen.

Acer was once again able to slim the frame around the display, so that a screen-to-body ratio of 90 percent is now achieved. The slim frame makes the whole device more compact, but also makes it look good. Speaking of optics: the housing is based on a combination of magnesium-lithium and magnesium-aluminum and offers two new color options with “Mystical Green” and “Safari Gold”.
When folded, the Acer Swift 5 is 14.95 mm flat and weighs approximately one kilo. The Swift 5 comes with a 56 Wh battery that, according to Acer, lasts all day and can also be recharged at lightning speed. In just 30 minutes, the notebook should be ready for use again for a full four hours.
In addition, numerous connectivity options such as USB Type-C, Thunderbolt ™ and USB 3.2 Gen 2 ports as well as dual-band Intel® Wi-Fi 6 (GIG +) and Bluetooth 5.0 make the device a true all-round talent that is ready for use anytime and anywhere.
So you know how Acer also wants to position the new Swift 5: Stylish, but above all very compact, yet powerful and versatile. If you want to pull this 14-inch model on land, you have to be a bit patient, Acer expects to arrive in the fourth quarter of this year.
