Acer Swift 3 SF315 (Ryzen 5 2500U, Vega 8, 256 GB, FHD) Laptop Review

 

The boys are back in town. The mobile version of the Ryzen is here. Is this the first time that AMD is eye to eye with Intel? Overall, the answer is a definite yes, although Acer should not have cut corners with the SSD.

strong performance at Kaby Lake Refresh level ; Vega 8 IGP beats Intel UHD Graphics significantly ; thin, light and compact ; properly processed ; ports are well positioned ; TPM 2.0, fingerprint-reader ; very nice ClickPad ; very good contrast ratio ;...

short runtimes ; no Thunderbolt 3 ; cf. slow PCIe-SSD ; slow card reader ; narrow number pad ; screen too dark ; low color-space coverage ; unsatisfactory sound

With Ryzen 5 Mobile, AMD clearly sees itself ahead of Intel's Kaby Lake Refresh chips, a statement that we can agree with if we remove "clearly" from it. In the case of the 2500U, the general computing power is at eye level with the Core i5-8250U or...

Acer Swift 3 SF315 (i5-7200U, GeForce MX150) Laptop Review

 

A little bit of everything. Acer's newbie scores mainly with its compactness, versatility, and the new GeForce MX150. Small problems with the display and sound do not quite fit with its multimedia ambitions, but thanks to good input devices, security...

various equipment options available ; thin, light, and compact ; flawless workmanship ; good positioning of the ports ; TPM 2.0, fingerprint-sensor ; very nice ClickPad ; very good contrast ratio ; quiet, cool, and economical

very sensitive to fingerprints ; difficult to clean ; no Thunderbolt 3 ; very slow card reader ; maintenance might be difficult ; number pad too small ; display too dark ; very bad brightness distribution measured ; insufficient color-space coverage ;...

If you consider the high price of currently about 950 Euros (~$1116) of the new Acer Aspire Swift 3 SF315-51G-55Z9, only the sub-optimal display - which is by no means terrible - and in particular the pretty bad sound of the newcomer are below the...

Acer Swift 3 (SF315-41-R4W1): Notebook mit AMD-Ryzen-CPU im Test

 

Acer stellt mit dem Swift 3 ein Notebook mit AMDs Ryzen-mobile-CPUs in den Handel. Wie es sich im Vergleich zu Intel-Geräten schlägt, zeigt der Test.

Hohes Arbeitstempo ; Akzeptable Akkulaufzeit (3:38 Stunden) ; Geringes Gewicht ; Sehr geringe Wärmeentwicklung, leises Betriebsgeräusch ; WLAN-ac, Bluetooth 4.2

Verfälschte Farbdarstellung ; DVD-Brenner und Touchscreen fehlen

Acer Swift 3 SF315 - Accuduur Ryzen Mobile overtuigt niet

 

De Acer Swift 3 met Ryzen 5 2500U is een vlotte laptop. De processor doet weinig onder voor de zuinige quadcores van Intel en de geïntegreerde Vega 8-gpu is een beduidend stuk sneller dan de igpu's van Intel. Wel is het verschil met aparte gpu's, zoals...

Goede cpu- en gpu-prestaties ; Veel opslagruimte ; Scherm met goed contrast ; Goed afgewerkte behuizing

Matige accuduur ; Toetsenbord heeft weinig travel ; Matige schermhelderheid

Kort testrapport Acer Swift 3 SF315-41G (Ryzen 5 2500U, Radeon RX 540, SSD, FHD) Laptop

 

Bescheiden alleskunner. The Swift 3 SF315-41G is een multimedia alleskunner van Acer die bouwt op de combinatie van een Raven Ridge APU en aparte AMD GPU. Samen met een IPS beeldscherm, verlicht toetsenbord en NVMe SSD is de computer uiterst veelzijdig.

Mat IPS beeldscherm ; Full-HD resolutie ; NVMe-SSD ; Dun, licht, compact

Weerspiegelend beeldscherm ; Langzame kaartlezer ; Gamingprestaties onder GeForce MX150

Con i freni tirati. Lo Swift 3 SF315-41G è un tuttofare multimediale di Acer che si basa sulla combinazione di un'APU Raven Ridge e di un'unità grafica dedicata AMD. A questi si aggiungono un display IPS, una tastiera retroilluminata e un NVMe-SSD. Di...

display IPS opaco ; Risoluzione Full HD ; NVMe-SSD ; sottile, leggero, compatto

display riflettente ; lettore di schede lento ; prestazioni di gioco al di sotto della GeForce MX150

Il tuttofare multimediale di Acer è dotato di un'APU AMD Raven-Ridge che offre una potenza di calcolo più che sufficiente per tutti i casi d'uso standard. La GPU dedicata consente di giocare in modo limitato. Tuttavia, le impostazioni di risoluzione e...

Kort testrapport Acer Swift 3 (Ryzen 7 2700U, Radeon RX Vega 10) Laptop

 

Ryzen up. Acer heeft de populaire Swift 3 laptop uitgerust met AMD's krachtigste mobiele APU, de Ryzen 7 2700U met RX Vega 10 grafische kaart. Helaas kan het systeem de verwachtingen niet waarmaken.

Concurreert goed met Kaby Lake R CPU's ; Vega 10 GPU verslaag Intel iGPU met grote marges ; Relatief compact en draagbaar ; Goede positionering en van poorten ; Vingerafdrukscanner is een leuke toevoeging ; Ventilatoren zijn goed gebalanceerd ;...

Relatief korte looptijden vergeleken met Kaby Lake R apparaten ; Geen Thunderbolt 3 ; Langzame kaartlezer ; Inconsistente PCIe SSD ; Donker en weerspiegelend beeldscherm ; Vlak geluid ; Toetsenbord is ondiep en luid ; Scherpe randen zijn oncomfortabel...

Voor het volledige, Engelse testrapport, klik hier.Alles bij elkaar kan de Ryzen 7 2700U veel beloftes niet waarmaken, tenminste in de Acer Swift 3. Er is veel ruimte voor verbetering, maar het is nu aan AMD om de Ryzen 7 verder te exploiteren. Dan nog...

Recensione del Portatile Acer Swift 3 (Ryzen 7 2700U, Radeon RX Vega 10)

 

Ryzen up. Acer ha aggiornato il loro popolare computer portatile Swift 3 con l'APU mobile più potente di AMD, il Ryzen 7 2700U con grafica RX Vega 10. Purtroppo, il sistema non riesce a sfruttare appieno il suo potenziale.

è in grado di competere con le CPU Kaby Lake R ; Le GPU Vega 10 superano di gran lunga le iGPU Intel ; relativamente compatto e portatile ; le porte sono ben posizionate e offrono un'ampia gamma di servizi ; lettore di impronte digitali è aggiunta...

relatively short battery life compared to Kaby Lake R devices ; no Thunderbolt 3 ; slow card reader ; inconsistent PCIe SSD ; screen is far too dim ; screen is far too reflective ; screen has low color space coverage ; sound is thin ; keyboard is...

La Ryzen 7 è qui, ma non in pieno vigore. L'Acer Swift 3 è una delle prime macchine ad utilizzare la nuova APU AMD, ma non può essere la migliore immagine di ciò che il chip può fare. Anche se le prestazioni sono leggermente migliorate rispetto alla...
