Visually, Acer holds back on the new Swift Edge 16 and goes for minimalism. The case, which is made of a magnesium alloy, is particularly thin and light. It weighs just 1.2 kilograms, which makes the notebook perfectly suitable for everyday use. Meanwhile, the laptop’s OLED display with a diagonal of 16 inches is clearly in the foreground. It has a resolution of 3200 x 2000 pixels and a refresh rate of 120 Hz. In addition, there is 100 percent DCI-P3 color space coverage, 0.2 ms response time, a contrast ratio of 1,000,000:1 and a peak brightness of 500 nits. All of this clearly shows that Acer has placed great emphasis on producing high-quality images. The display equipment is rounded off by DisplayHDR True Black 500 certification as well as an Eyesafe certification by TÜV Rheinland. The latter certifies a blue light reduction.
AMD Ryzen 7040 series
Processors from AMD’s 7040 series Ryzen work inside the laptop. Which processor is used depends on the selected laptop variant. The same applies for the graphics card. Up to the AMD Radeon 780M is possible here. Some of the available processors support AMD Ryzen AI, an artificial intelligence that is supposed to enable automatic video enhancement during video chats, among other things. The processor is supported by up to 32 GB of LPDDR5 RAM memory.
WiFi 7 and more
The new Swift Edge 16 also wants to score with WiFi 7 support. This new WLAN standard allows speeds of up to 5.8 Gbit/s and is supposed to ensure particularly low latencies. The laptop is also equipped with a fingerprint reader that supports Windows Hello, just like the last Swift X 16. There’s also a 1440-pixel QHD webcam, Windows Studio Effects support, temporal noise reduction and AI noise reduction for better video conferencing experiences, two USB-A ports, two USB 4-C 65W ports with fast charging and display capabilities, an HDMI 2.1 port, and a micro SD card reader.
Swift Edge 16: Price and Availability
The new laptop is expected to be available from August 2023, with a recommended retail price of 1,499 euros for the cheapest version.
