Intel Xe Graphics Debuts with Acer’s New Swift 3X with 11th-gen CPUs

During Acer’s announcement event, Intel’s new Xe graphics finally makes its debut in partnership with Acer with the announcement of the Swift 3X laptop. Developed by ex-AMD Radeon head Raja Koduri, he has been busy over at Intel developing the chip giant’s new Xe graphics architecture. The new Acer Swift 3X is the formal debut of Intel Xe with the Intel Iris Xe MAX graphics solution baked into the Swift 3X.

The Swift 3X is equipped with Intel’s 11th-gen Tiger Lake processor and is a combination made for creative professionals for powerful on-the-go work and gaming. Weighing in at 1.37kg, Acer rates the Swift 3X for up to 17 hours of battery life on a single charge and features fast-charge support that can juice up the Swift 3x to a 4-hour battery life at only 30-mins charging.

The Swift 3X features a 14-inch FHD IPS screen that covers 72% of the NTSC color gamut and offers an 84% screen-to-body ratio; offers Intel Wi-Fi 6 (Gig+); and features USB-C, Thunderbolt 4 and USB 3.2 Gen 2 ports for expanded connectivity.Jerry Kao
