Snapdragon X Series Platforms: Powering the Next-Generation AI PCs

The Snapdragon X Series processors are designed for AI, offering high performance, intelligence, and power efficiency for Windows devices. The Acer Swift 14 AI, running on Snapdragon X Elite, boasts 12 high-performance CPU cores on a 4nm process node, a Qualcomm Adreno GPU with 3.8 TFLOPS, and a Qualcomm Hexagon NPU delivering 45 TOPS. With up to 32 GB of LPDDR5X-8533 RAM and a maximum of 1 TB NVMe PCIe Gen 4 SSD, this device enhances system performance for various tasks like productivity, creativity, and immersive entertainment while maintaining power efficiency. Supported by a plethora of optimized apps for Arm architecture, Snapdragon X Elite and Snapdragon X Plus processors ensure smooth and efficient user experiences.

A New AI Era Begins with Copilot+ PCs

The new Swift 14 AI has been optimized with powerful AI, unlocking new productivity, creativity, and communication experiences.

With Recall, users can easily find anything they have seen on their PC by simply describing the clues they remember. With an explorable timeline, users can easily scroll across time to get back to apps, documents, or messages they previously used. Live Captions with live translations provides automatic speech captions and conducts translations in real-time of any live or pre-recorded video from 44 languages into English.

To spark imagination and creative abilities, visual or written prompts can now be used to co-create AI images and texts on the device with Cocreator. Auto Super Resolution automatically upscales graphics resolution and frame refresh rates of games in real-time to deliver the visuals players crave without taking a hit on performance. For those who always want to look and sound their best while better engaging their audience in video calls, Windows Studio Effects helps to automatically improve lighting conditions and cancel out unwanted noise. It can also be used to activate three artistic filters on any video platform via Quick settings, allowing users to express themselves in new and creative ways during video calls. And Copilot, the everyday AI companion, is accessible via a single click of the dedicated Copilot key.

Premium Design and Features

As a reflection of its modern capabilities and usability, the Swift 14 AI sports a refined Copilot+ PC-exclusive design, highlighted by a unique AI icon stamped on the cover of the thin-and-light chassis and an Activity Indicator on the touchpad that illuminates when the device or Copilot is activated. The laptop features a 14.5-inch WQXGA (2560×1600) IPS display with a 120 Hz refresh rate and support for 100% sRGB color gamut. It is available with edge-to-edge touchscreen options and comes with TÜV Rheinland Eyesafe® Certification 2.0 to help minimize the effects of harmful blue light without sacrificing color accuracy. A 180-degree hinge design provides the flexibility of a different user mode and enables easy opening of the aluminum cover with one hand.

A 1440p QHD IR webcam with a triple microphone array and privacy shuttersupports Acer’s suite of AI-boosted conferencing tools in Acer PurifiedView 2.0 and Acer PurifiedVoice 2.0 to ensure users always look and sound their best. These can be swiftly calibrated thanks to Acer QuickPanel which intuitively appears when the device’s webcam or microphone has been switched on. A dedicated key directs users to the Red Dot Design Award-winning AcerSense app for device management and a library of AI features available on the device through the Experience Zone.

This Copilot+ PC comes with Windows Hello that supports biometric and facial recognition login for quick and secure access. Sustainability remains a vital pillar for Acer’s next-generation products, with the Swift 14 AI utilizing PCR plastic in the device, shipping with 100% recyclable packaging, and receiving the EPEAT Gold certification for its compliance with the highest EPEAT criteria. The device also boasts Wi-Fi 7 and Bluetooth 5.4 connectivity to deliver speeds of up to 5.8 Gbps and low network latency of under 2 ms, plus a host of generous port selections including two USB Type-C and two USB 3.2 Type-A ports for added flexibility.
