Acer just announced the new Acer Swift X 16 (SFX16-61G), a laptop for creators and designers with performance-packed features for graphic designing, 3D rendering and video editing.
The Swift X 16 is powered by the AMD Ryzen 9 7940H processor (up to 45W and 8 cores) and built-in AMD Radeon 780M graphics. It also has an Nvidia GeForce RTX 4050 laptop GPU for more intensive workloads and comes with up to 16GB LPDDR5 RAM, up to 2TB of PCIe Gen 4 SDD storage, and a MicroSD slot for added storage space.
To keep this powerful hardware cooled, the Swift X 16 comes with upgraded TwinAir cooling that boosts air intake by up to 36% from its larger fans and newly added turbo mode, and an air-inlet keyboard design to help expel heat and maintain cool temperatures. The newly designed thin-and-light laptop weighs just 1.9kg in a 17.9 mm chassis.
For the display, customers can customise the Swift X 16 with a 16-inch OLED screen that has a 3200×2000 resolution and a 16:10 aspect ratio. This display provides complete coverage of the DCI-P3 colour spectrum, has a 120Hz refresh rate, a quick 0.2ms response time, VESA DisplayHDR TrueBlack 500 certification, and can reach a peak brightness of 500nits.
Regarding connectivity, the Swift X 16 features a variety of ports, including two USB Type-C ports, two USB Type-A ports, an HDMI 2.1 port, and a headphone jack. It also supports WiFi 6E wireless connectivity. Additionally, the laptop has a fingerprint reader that supports Windows Hello for secure login, and Wake on Voice functionality for even more convenient access.
Furthermore, the Swift X 16 includes an FHD webcam equipped with advanced features such as background blur, automatic framing, and eye contact technology to enhance the quality of video conferencing and live streaming. The laptop also comes with Acer’s Temporal Noise Reduction feature, which produces better image quality in low light conditions, as well as AI noise reduction technology for clearer audio during calls.
