Acer Adds New Ryzen Processors To The Swift And Nitro Laptops
Acer’s New Laptops Are Ryzen Swiftly
Acer announced an update to their Swift and Nitro laptop lineups which will surely please any AMD fans out there. According to what The Inquirer tells us, the entry level Nitro 5 gaming laptop will be powered by a 4 core/8 thread, 4GHz Ryzen 7 3750H paired with an RX560X. Those components should keep the price below $1000 and offer more than acceptable 1080p performance and possibly better battery life than the Intel models, or even the current optional Ryzen 5 2500U.
The Swift 3 on the other hand is more of an ultraportable, with a 4 core/8 thread 4GHz Ryzen 7 3700U that produces a mere 15w of thermals. If you stick with it’s onboard Vega 10 GPU your battery life should be impressive, though you can also opt to have a RX540X installed to give your graphics a bit of a boost if you prefer. The external design remains the same, so pay attention to the description if you are shopping around. We don’t have a price on this one yet, but previous models ranged between $600-$800.
The Nitro 5, which is Acer's entry-level gaming laptop, has been given the option to uses a Ryzen 7 3750H processor and upgrade on the previous Ryzen 5 2500U it could be specced in.

If that Swift 3 allows a cTDP configuration, specifically upwards, it’ll be really nice. Say a 25W mode.
