Acer Swift 3X – from RM3799

Intel Iris Xe MAX Deep Link

The Acer Swift 3X is pretty unique, in the way that it is currently the first laptop to feature Intel Iris Xe MAX graphics here in Malaysia. Intel’s Deep Link technology provides content creators with significantly faster video encoding by combining the capabilities of the Intel Xe Graphics from the 11th Gen Intel Core processor and Intel Iris Xe MAX graphics.

You can get the Acer Swift 3X with up to 16GB of onboard LPDDR4X memory and 512GB PCIe NVMe storage, allowing you to multi-task without worrying about running out of memory or storage. As mentioned earlier, the cooling on the Acer Swift 3X is significantly improved from previous generations, providing around 60% more airflow to better cool the Intel Iris Xe MAX graphics and 11th Gen Intel Core processor.

Acer Swift 3X Steam Blue

Aside from raw performance, the Acer Swift 3X is also a very feature-packed laptop. The 14″ FHD IPS display covers 72% of the NTSC gamut, while Acer ExaColor and Acer Color Intelligence ensures that you get great color accuracy and reduced eyestrain when using the laptop. There are plenty of connectivity options on the Acer Swift 3X including WiFi 6, Bluetooth 5, Thunderbolt 4 and HDMI 2.0.

Acer also equipped the Acer Swift 3X with up to 17.5 hours of battery life, and fast charging capabilities that allow you to regain 4 hours of use with just 30 minutes of charging.
