New Ryzen 5000-powered Acer Swift X And Acer Nitro 50 Now Available
Acer Malaysia has unveiled the Red Dot Award-winning Acer Swift X and the Acer Nitro 50, both of which are powered by AMD Ryzen 5000 series processors.
Acer Swift X
The AMD Ryzen 7 5800U processor and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 Ti with 3rd Generation Max-Q technology power the Acer Swift X. Its inbuilt LPDDR4X RAM of up to 16GB and 512GB PCIe NVMe SSD allow fast access to files and apps.
The Acer Swift X has a 14-inch FHD IPS display with an 85.7% screen-to-body ratio, up to 300nits of brightness, and an sRGB colour gamut of 100%. It also includes Acer BlueLightShield technology to reduce eye strain during lengthy editing sessions, as well as a fingerprint sensor for more secure sign-in with Windows Hello.
The Acer Swift X also has a svelte design with a 1.79cm thin chassis and weighs just 1.39kg. It has a fast-charging 59W battery and can run for up to 17 hours. Acer Swift X has an air inlet keyboard design to improve thermal performance and evacuate roughly 8-10% more heat than standard keyboards, allowing the laptop to operate cool for extended periods of time.
The Acer Swift X is available in two configurations: AMD Ryzen 7 and AMD Ryzen 5 for RM4,999 and RM4,299, respectively.
