Acer unveils the Swift Edge, an ultra-thin laptop with a 16-inch OLED screen

Acer is also moving into thin, full-size laptops with the Swift Edge. The Taiwanese manufacturer advertises it as the lightest 16-incher in the world, weighing 1.17 kg, or 30 g less than a certain LG Gram 16. To achieve this feat, the Swift Edge has a chassis made of aluminum and magnesium alloy. Fineness is also required with 1.39cm thick at the highest point.

The cap is very sober with a single logo at the top.

On the display side, Acer has of course gone big, but also qualitatively with a 16-inch Oled panel that displays nothing less than 3840 x 2400 pixels in 16/10 format. Swift Edge will therefore be both productive and multimedia oriented.

The trend at the moment: large screen and very thin chassis.

AMD Ryzen 6000, DDR5 and PCIe Gen4 SSD

Once not custom, Acer turned to AMD to animate its Swift Edge. It is the Ryzen 6000 processor that will be the core of this ultraportable. Acer will use the entire range with Ryzen 5 6600U (6C/12T), Ryzen 7 6800U (8C/12T) as well as the versions for professionals with Ryzen 5 Pro 6650U and Ryzen 7 Pro 6850U. These processors can be accompanied by 16 to 32 GB of RAM and 512 to 1 TB of PCIe Gen4 SSD, depending on their configuration.

Connectivity is up to standard with two USB-C 3.2 Gen2 ports, two USB 3.2 Gen1 ports and an HDMI 2.1 port. 6E wifi and Bluetooth 5.2 are also part of the trip. Finally, a webcam equipped with a 1080p sensor sits above the screen.

The Taiwanese manufacturer announces 7h30 autonomy thanks to its 54 Wh battery, which we will not fail to verify during the test. In comparison, the LG Gram 16 and its 80 Wh battery lasted nearly 10 hours during its passage through our hands.

The Acer Swift Edge (SFA16-41) will be available in November from 1299 euros in its most modest configuration.
