Aimed at creators and players, this versatile multimedia laptop incorporates good connectivity with 2 USB-C Thunderbolt 4, the useful HDMI video output for easy connection to a TV or monitor, for example, the audio port, Bluetooth 5.2 wireless modules and Wi-Fi Ax 6E for communication and remote connection, the microSD card reader or 2 USB 3.0 (compatible with USB 2.0) ensuring transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 devices are connected to it.

Through Windows Hello technology and the built-in biometric reader, you can authenticate yourself using fingerprint recognition.

When the ambient light is low, you can turn on the chiclet keyboard's backlight system to better distinguish its keys.

The screen represents a major advantage of this multimedia Ultrabook, because it offers well above average color accuracy with very deep blacks, as well as significant viewing angles, both horizontally and vertically.

Performance, battery life of Acer Swift X SFX14-71G-78HR (NX.KEVEF.006)

The Acer Swift

It stands out for the large amount of RAM memory above the average 32 GB that allows you to see things coming. It seamlessly accompanies the processor, an Intel Raptor Lake Core i7-13700H with 14 hybrid cores.
We thus obtain a good overall power capable of satisfying demanding users.

This core will excite creators because it guarantees particularly faster processing than 8/16 GB DDR4/5 as well as Quad/Hexa/Octo Core, the difference being particularly strong in tasks that require RAM and CPU resources by taking advantage of multi-core applications such as video editing, 3D rendering or photo editing.

Creative people will appreciate this laptop even more as it features the exclusive GeForce RTX 4050 ray tracing graphics card with NVIDIA Ada Lovelace architecture. Because it speeds up processing in applications that use GPU computing power, typically Adobe Premiere/Photoshop, VSDC or Sony Vegas.

GeForce RTX 4050 ray tracing is actually used by NVIDIA Optimus technology to perform graphics tasks that are considered too heavy for the Iris Xe graphics unit installed on the Core i7.

With either the GeForce RTX 4050 or the Iris Xe, you can obviously watch photos and videos as well as play light games. Iris

Depending on the tasks being performed, Optimus truly switches automatically and in real time between Iris Xe and GeForce RTX 4050.

Thanks to the GeForce RTX 4050, you can run recent games, as long as you make adjustments to the most demanding titles in terms of graphics resources to benefit from good playability.
The display adopts a 2.5K definition that requires more graphics calculations than Full HD, which means a lower number of fps.

On the storage side, Acer obviously chooses an SSD because it's more robust than a hard drive while being less power-hungry, quieter, and much faster.
As a result, an SSD provides much better fluidity and responsiveness on a day-to-day basis than a hard drive.

Online gaming cards can be accessed faster with an SSD than a hard drive specifically, while game/software launches, media processing and startup/shutdowns run faster, for example.

Here we find a 1 TB SSD, a significant capacity capable of hosting a large number of files, games and software, including personal creations, that will satisfy the maximum of users.

Finally, when it comes to battery life, count on around 7 hours of battery life in light use for this Ultrabook whose compactness, finesse and lightness make it easy to carry. It may therefore be of interest to some who intend to equip themselves with a multimedia laptop for students.
Additionally, this versatile, creative, multimedia gaming laptop gets hot and noisy under heavy loads (eg editing, gaming).
In addition, it can be combined with a ventilated support to contain its temperatures (remember to check the dimensions carefully!).
