The Acer company has just officially announced its new ultrabook within its world event [email protected] which has been held online this year. It is a very interesting model, with enough power even for the most demanding users, to play, work or even stream.
Acer Swift X is another clear example that makes it clear that AMD and its Ryzen are finally a real alternative to the until now almost the only kings, the Intel Core, which generation after generation ended up taking over most of the alternatives on the market.
This ultraportable is a team that has a weight of only 1.39 kg and a 14-inch IPS screen FullHD resolution. It is finished in a metal chassis and a colored cap to the computer and also to the top of the keyboard. It is available in pink, gold or gray colors.
What stands out most about this equipment is that it can be purchased in addition to a Ryzen 5000 Zen 3 architecture processor with an additional dedicated GPU NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 Ti.

As we have commented, it mounts a powerful CPU, Zen 3 generation Ryzen and a Dedicated RTX 3050 Ti GPU, so the heat generated will have to be removed. For this Acer a fan and a double heatpipe system helped by a ventilation system from the keyboard which can be used as an air exchange system and which, according to Acer, improves thermal efficiency by between 8 and 10%.
