A third-party retailer has started offering the Swift X SFX16-52G, Acer’s 16-inch laptop with a dedicated Intel Arc GPU. Acer notebook computer is available with Core i5-1240P and Core i7-1260P processors. Acer Swift X also uses the Intel Arc A370M with a 1600p display and LPDDR5 RAM.
Intel Arc-powered machines are slowly coming to market, this time with Acer and its SFX16-52G. Revealed at CES 2022 in January, the Swift X arrived in refreshed 14-inch and 16-inch variants, although only the latter received dedicated Intel GPUs. In comparison, Acer equips the SFX14-51G with the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 Ti.
The new Acer notebook laptop comes with the Intel Arc A370M, a dedicated GPU with 128 execution units (EUs), and 4 GB of GDDR6 VRAM running at 14 Gbps on a 64-bit memory interface. For context, VideoCardz thinks the Intel Arc A370M GPU will be close to the performance of NVIDIA’s GA107 GPU, which it uses in the GeForce RTX 3050 Ti model.
