As part of Intel’s rollout of its 11th-gen Core mobile processors with Iris Xe graphics, Acer on Wednesday announced updates to its line of slim, lightweight laptops, the Swift 5 and Swift 3.
At launch, the Swift 5 will also be one of the first laptops to meet the requirements of Intel’s Evo platform as part of the chipmaker’s Project Athena innovation program.
The Swift 3 will be available with a 14-inch, full-HD widescreen display or a tall 2K-resolution 13. 5-inch display (pictured).
The Swift 3, which will be available in two screen sizes, is part of Project Athena but is still getting tuned to meet the Evo requirements.
The Acer Swift 3, which already impressed us with an AMD Ryzen 4000 series processor, will be updated with Intel’s 11th-gen CPUs, too.
Both versions of the Swift 3 are also expected to ship in November, with the 14-inch starting at $700 and the 13. 5-inch at $800.
You’ll be able to get it with either a 14-inch full-HD widescreen display or a tall 13. 5-inch display with a 2,256×1,504-pixel resolution and a 3:2 aspect ratio.
