Acer's new Swift 3 has AMD's new 7nm Ryzen 4000 processors

Swift 3 SF313-52

Acer announced a refreshed lineup of Swift 3 laptops at CES today, including the Swift 3 SF313-52 and the Swift 3 SF314-42, a 13.5- and 14-inch model, respectively. Aside from the size differences, the 13.5-inch model has Intel Ice Lake CPUs and the 14-inch model has AMD Ryzen processors.

The 13.5-inch model comes with up to an Intel Core i7-1065G7, and the screen has a 3:2 aspect ratio with an 83.65% screen-to-body ratio, making it similar to a Surface Laptop. It's 15.95mm thin, and it weighs in at just 2.62 pounds. It also supports fast charging, with Acer promising four hours of use on a 30-minute charge.

Moreover, it has the option of Nvidia graphics from the MX lineup, which should offer a bit of a performance bump over the already-solid Iris Plus Graphics that are included with Ice Lake.
