IFA 2019: Acer Takes Gaming To New Level With 300Hz Display”

Acer announced an update to its Acer Swift 5 laptop at IFA 2019. Of course, in terms of performance, the Swift 7 is a step back as it runs on older Intel 8th gen Core i7-8500Y and Core i5-8200Y processors.

Once again, Acer has managed to retain the sub-1kg weight for the new generation Swift 5 at 990 grams which can be even lighter if customers choose to stick with integrated graphics.

Acer Swift 5 is a lightweight notebook and its chassis is built with the combination of magnesium-lithium and magnesium-aluminum alloys.

This means it weighs just 990g and is 14.95mm thin, but thankfully that's the only thing that the Swift 5 is packing.

The Swift 5 is based on Intel's 10 Generation Core processor codenamed Ice Lake with up to four cores that is accompanied by NVIDIA's discrete GeForce MX 250 discrete GPU. It comes with a 14-inch full HD display with slim bezels and 86.4% of screen to body ratio. The Acer Swift 5 and Swift 3 will be available in India by September end, starting at Rs 69,999 and Rs 59,999 respectively.

Acer also introduced a refershed Swift 3 notebook which has a 14-inch Full HD IPS screen and weighs 1.19 kg. The device also has a built-in fingerprint reader through Windows Hello. For connectivity, it has USB3.1 Type-C connector that supports Thunderbolt 3 and dual-band Intel Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax). It also supports fast charging that can provide up to 4.5 hours of use with a 30-minute charge, according to Acer.

The Acer Swift 5 Ultrabook comes with a lightweight design that weighs just 990gms in total which is one of the lightest in the market. Acer offers its own suite of color enhancement technologies such as Acer Color Intelligence and Acer ExaColor for life-like colors.

Exact specifications, prices, and availability will vary by region.

The new Acer Swift-series is aimed at students and families says the company.

Founded in 1976, today Acer is one of the world's top ICT companies and has a presence in over 160 countries. Actual battery life varies by model, configuration, applications, video chip format and features used. Its storage can be configured up to 512GB, with up to 16GB of RAM.
