Acer Swift 5 Laptop İnceleme: 14 inç ultrabook için çok yönlü bir iyileştirme

Christian Hintze, 👁 Sebastian Jentsch, 01/28/2020

Its weight in dollars. Başka bir Swift sineklik testi için geldi ve selefinden çok daha az uzlaşma gerektirdiğini kanıtlamak zorunda kalacak. Yeni Intel Core i5-1035G1 nihayet aşırı azaltma yerine uygun performansı sunacak mı? İncelememizde öğrenin.

Yeni 14 inç Swift 5, test serilerimizde adım adım ilerledi. İçeride, yeni bir işlemci ve biraz daha güçlü bir grafik birimi ile donatılmış - selefi, aşırı kısma nedeniyle eleştirildi, bu da rekabeti bir yana kendi selefine ayak uydurmasını engelledi. Üretici aynı zamanda başka eleştiriler de dikkate almış görünüyor. Örneğin, Acer şimdi cihaza daha büyük bir pil verdi. Swift dışarıdan çok benzer görünüyor - gerçek değişiklikler ayrıntılarda. Selefine benzer şekilde, yeni Swift 1 kg'dan daha hafiftir ve bu da rekabetin çoğunu yener. Test ünitemizi selefi Acer Swift 7 ile iki kat fiyatla karşılaştıracağız ve Acer TravelMate X514 ile LG Gram ve Asus ZenBook 14.

Kasa - Acer ultrabook'un ayrıntılarındaki değişiklikler

İlk bakışta, son Swift 5 ve mevcut test ünitesi arasında herhangi bir görsel fark yok gibi görünüyor. Ancak, daha yakından bakarsanız, ayrıntılarda bazı değişiklikler göreceksiniz - ve bu iyi. Sonuçta, ekran çerçevesindeki boşluk boyutlarını ve selefte kötü konumlandırılmış bağlantı noktalarını eleştirdik.Önceki şimdi ele alındı - panel çerçevesine sıkıca oturuyor ve herhangi bir boşluk fark etmedik - işçilik görünüyor daha kaliteli olmak. Menteşeler de değişti, ancak yenileri cihazın artık 180 dereceye açılamayacağı gibi küçük bir dezavantaja sahip. Çerçeveler şimdi daha da ince ve selefinin endişe verici gıcırtıları ele alındı. Durum sağlam ve istikrarlı görünüyor. Bataryaya dışarıdan erişilemez ve alt kapağa torx vidaları ile sabitlenir.

"Eski" Swift 5 ile karşılaştırıldığında, yeni model daha da küçüldü - rekor kıran Swift 7'nin boyutuna ulaşmasa da, rekabet eksikliği nedeniyle (LG Gram hariç), Swift 5 bir olmaya devam ediyor aktif soğutma fanı bulunan en küçük ve özellikle en hafif 14 inç ultrabook'lardan.

Bağlantı - daha iyi bağlantı noktası konumlandırma özelliğine sahip cimri Swift

Eksik port seçimi aynı kalır. Bunun yerine Acer, kötü liman konumlandırma konusunu ele aldı. Selefte, hemen hemen tüm bağlantı noktaları sağ tarafa yerleştirildi ve bu nedenle fare kullanan sağ elini kullananlar için rahatsız ediciydi. Şimdi bu tarafta sadece bir USB Tip A yuvası ve ses girişi var - diğer iki USB yuvası sol tarafa taşındı, bu da portların dağıtımını daha da eşit hale getiriyor. Cihazda sadece Wi-Fi sunan bir LAN konektörü bulunmuyor. Ne yazık ki, kart okuyucu hala eksik ve mevcut USB Type-A bağlantı noktasının bir sonraki sürümde 3.1 yuvasıyla değiştirilmesini memnuniyetle karşılıyoruz. En azından USB yuvası şimdi Thunderbolt'u destekliyor.

İletişim

Wi-Fi 6'yı destekleyen yeni Intel modem sayesinde, test birimimiz artık daha yüksek internet hızları sunabiliyor. Yeni sürüm, veri göndermede öncekinin iki katı ve alma sırasında üç kattan daha hızlıdır. Ancak, her iki yönde de birkaç büyük artış kaydettik. Bluetooth, 5.0 sürümüne dahildir.

Cihazda bir Kensington kilidi, TPM ve tıpkı öncekilerde olduğu gibi ok tuşlarının altına yerleştirilmiş bir parmak izi sensörü var.

Aksesuarlar

Acer, sadece olağan bileşenler de dahil olmak üzere aksesuarlar açısından çok cömert değildir.

Bakım

Alt kapak, 11 torx vida ile yerinde tutulur. Neyse ki, vidaları söktükten sonra kapağı çıkarmak, rakiplerin çoğunda olduğundan çok daha kolaydır. Bu yapıldıktan sonra, kullanıcılar bataryaya, tek soğutma fanına, SSD'ye vb. Erişebilirler. Ne yazık ki, 8 GB RAM modülü sıkıca lehimlendiği için değiştirilemez veya yükseltilemez.

Garanti

Üretici, kullanıcılara posta servisi de dahil olmak üzere iki yıllık bir garanti verir (en azından ilk yıl için).

Giriş Aygıtları - her şey aynı kalır

Tuş takımı

Selefinin klavyesinin çeşitli yönlerini eleştirdik - ancak pek bir şey değişmedi. Sayfa yukarı / aşağı ve Poz1 / Bitiş tuşları ile yerlerini paylaşmak zorunda olan çok dar ok tuşları, ters parlaklık sembolleri ve silme yanındaki entegre güç tuşu da dahil olmak üzere düzen aynı kaldı. fark edilir basınç noktası ve yazmanın kolay ve hızlı olması. Yazma gürültüsü iyileşmiş gibi görünüyor ve şimdi sadece boşluk çubuğu biraz daha yüksek olduğunda iyice kabul edilebilir. Ana birim yazarken sabit kalır ve zorlukla yol açar. Artık iki parlaklık seviyesi sunan arka aydınlatmadan da memnunuz.

Dokunmatik yüzey iyi kayma özelliklerine sahiptir ve yeterince büyüktür. Çeşitli hareketleri kolayca tanır. Ancak, tümleşik tuşların kullanımı biraz zor ve nispeten yüksek olmaya devam ediyor.

Dokunmatik ekran

Dizüstü bilgisayar dokunmatik ekranı ile de kullanılabilir. Bu çok sezgisel ve kullanımı kolaydır. Son kez yaptığımız tek eleştiri, girişler artan basınçla yapıldığında dizüstü bilgisayarın geriye doğru eğilme eğiliminde olmasıydı. Yeni modeli test ederken artık bu sorunu farketmedik. Menteşeler artık kuvvetli baskı altında daha kolay bir şekilde yer vererek taban ünitesini yerinde bırakıyor.

Ekran - yeni Acer daha parlak ve daha iyi

Selefinin ekranı kötü değildi, ancak parlaklık açısından birkaç zayıflığı vardı. Acer yine AU Optronics'den bir panel kullanmayı seçti. Bununla birlikte, bu yeni model yansıtıcı olmaktan ziyade mat bir yüzeye sahiptir.Parlaklık da iyileşti: Cihazın ortalama parlaklığı şimdi tüm karşılaştırma alanında ikinci en iyisi - sadece LG Gram yaklaşık% 5 daha parlak. Neyse ki, bunun diğer yönleri üzerinde olumsuz bir etkisi yoktur. Parlaklık dağılımı% 84'te iyi olmaya devam ediyor (selefi% 86 idi) Kenarlarda hafif bir arka ışık kanaması olduğunu fark ettik. Bununla birlikte, bu oldukça zayıftır ve sadece çok karanlık ortamlarda ve siyah içerikle fark edilir.

Acer, seleflerin alıcılarının açık havada çalışmasını zorlaştıran tüm zayıflıklarla uğraştı. Mevcut test ünitesindeki ekran yeterince parlak, mat yüzey rahatsız edici yansımalar sorunuyla ilgileniyor ve siyah değer ve kontrast daha da geliştirildi.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
32 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 18 ms rise
↘ 14 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 81 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (24.9 ms).

In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.9 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 74 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (39.6 ms).

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM not detected

In comparison: 50 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 17159 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 2500000) Hz was measured.

Görüş açısı kararlılığı, bir IPS panelinden beklendiği kadar iyidir. İçerik, geniş açılardan ve çok fazla parlaklık veya kontrast kaybetmeden açıkça görülebilir.

Swift 5, hala bilinmeyen entegre bir UHD Graphics G1 (Ice Lake 32 EU) ile Intel Core i5-1035G1 üzerinde çalışıyor. Ayrıca Kingston'dan 512 GB SSD ve 8 GB RAM içerir. Acer nihayet DDR4 RAM kullandı (öncekinden farklı olarak). RAM sıkıca lehimlenmeye devam etse de, en azından çift kanal modunda çalışır.Bu, ince ve hafif Swift 5'i ofis işleri ve tarama için özellikle uygun hale getirir, ancak yeni grafik birimi içeren yeni işlemci biraz daha söz veriyor performansa sahip olan selefin sunduklarından daha yüksek performans. Kullanıcılar, bu küçük Acer cihazıyla zorlu oyunlar oynayamayacak veya yoğun bir video düzenleme yapamayacaklar.LatencyMon yazılımı Swift için iyi sonuçlar veriyor - önemli gecikmeleri ölçmedi.

İşlemci

Bu cihazdaki işlemci nispeten yeni Intel Core i5-1035G1 - 7.5 ila 25 watt arasında yapılandırılabilen bir TDP ile Ice Lake tabanlı özellikle verimli bir dört çekirdekli CPU. Temel saat hızı yalnızca 1 GHz'de düşüktür, ancak CPU, TDP yapılandırmasına bağlı olarak 3,6 GHz'e veya aynı anda dört çekirdeğin tümü için 3,2 GHz'e ulaşabilir. Çip şimdi Wi-Fi 6 ve Thunderbolt 3'ün yanı sıra çeşitli AI özellikleri de içeriyor. 30 dakikalık Cinebench döngüsü sırasında birkaç şey fark ettik: İlk olarak, başlangıç noktası öncekiyle neredeyse aynı, ancak performans yeni Swift, eski Swift 5'teki gibi düşmektense ilk birkaç turdan sonra sabit kalıyor. Bu bir tesadüf olamaz - yeni modelde de aynı şey oldu.

Cihazı hala soğukken açtıktan hemen sonra döngüye başlamış olmasına rağmen, Swift 5 pil üzerinde 518 nokta yerine 560'a ulaştı. Bu, performansın tamamen kararlı olmadığını gösterir - sonuçta, batarya üzerinde test yapmak genellikle performansta bir düşüşe neden olur.Tüm Swift'te, selefi ve Swift'i yenmesine rağmen eski CPU'larına rağmen rekabetinin çoğunu geride bırakamaz. 7. ZenBook 14 (Core i5-8265U) birinci oldu. Bu, bazı kısıtlamaların kaldığını ve Swift'in potansiyelini tam olarak kullanamayacağını gösterir.

Sistem performansı

Yeni Swift 5 iyi bir sistem performansı sunuyor. PCMark kriterlerinde güçlü şekilde kısılmış selefini kolayca yener ve hatta birçok senaryoda ilk sırada yer alır. Bununla birlikte, (eski CPU'larla donatılmış) rekabet genellikle çok geride değildir. Bununla birlikte, Swift 5'in 2018 sürümüne kıyasla sistem performansı açısından açık bir iyileşme var. Subjektif olarak, tüm önemli günlük görevlerin sorunsuz çalıştığını doğrulayabiliriz.

Storage Device

The Swift uses a Kingston SSD with 512 GB of storage. This SSD is currently positioned at number 93 in our list of top storage devices. However, it does surprisingly well in our tests and manages to be placed at the top of our comparison table. Even the model in the Swift 7, which is twice as expensive as our test unit, cannot keep up according to our measurements. This must be one of the reasons for the good system performance results.

GPU Performance

The Acer Swift does not have a dedicated GPU, although the fairly new Intel UHD Graphics G1 is supposed to be faster than the usual UHD Graphics units. 

The GPU did a remarkably good job in the synthetic 3DMark benchmark and is clearly faster than the competition equipped with the UHD Graphics 620. The lead amounts to 36% in 3DMark 11 with the ZenBook taking second place. The difference between our test unit and the old Swift 5 was a whole 77%. The results are similar in the Fire Strike test but the differences are a little smaller in Cloud Gate. 

We did not notice any particular loss in performance when the device was running on battery.

Gaming Performance

Even if Intel has managed to get a little more performance out of its UHD Graphics G1, the Swift will never be ideal for gaming. Users will be able to play undemanding games at medium settings at the most. More-demanding titles such as The Witcher 3 can hardly be displayed smoothly even at the lowest settings. The Swift reaches an average of 27 fps using these settings although the high variability of the frame rate make the subjective gaming experience hardly appear smooth.

Rocket League is a little more promising. Users could potentially even manage to play it at Full HD with medium details. BioShock can also be displayed at medium details although the resolution would have to be reduced to 1366x768.

Again, the competition cannot keep up. The difference to the old Swift 5 is 50% in most cases (Rocket League) or even 100% (The Witcher 3). This makes the comparison with the AMD Vega more interesting.

Emissions - Calm and cool ultrabook

System Noise

The new Swift 5 remains nicely calm throughout our tests. While it isn't silent, the cooling fans are hardly noticeable even under load. But then that is what business users would expect and all competitors in today's field are similarly quiet. We did not notice any beeping or other noises coming from our test unit.

Temperature

The surface temperatures are at room temperature while idling. When the device is put under maximum load, its temperatures reach a maximum value of 42 °C on the bottom - the top remains slightly cooler. This surface temperature should not prevent users from placing the device on their lap at any time. The competition can get a little hotter. The wrist rests, which are very important for everyday use, remain cool even under load with the heat development occurring mainly towards the back, near the display. Even there the heat is well distributed along the entire width of the device.

Our one-hour stress test had a similar result as that of the predecessor: The Acer already starts off at below its base clock rate - only this time the base rate is no longer 1.6 GHz but 1 GHz and therefore the deviation is not quite as dramatic. After one hour the clock rates drop by another 100 MHz. Overall, Acer's new Swift 5 continues to throttle quite strongly, although the new CPU seems to deal with this fairly well - at least compared to the processor in the old Swift 5. Future competitors could be more powerful - provided they experience less throttling. The core temperatures still have a little breathing space and reach around 70 - 75 °C.

Speakers

The speakers do a very good job at reproducing highs but leave room for improvement for other frequencies. The volume of the stereo speakers is too low overall and bass tones are hardly audible. Mids are balanced but uninspiring. Of course, speakers in a case of this size tend to have a hard time anyway, but the MacBook Pro shows that there are better solutions out there.

External audio devices can be connected via USB or the combined audio jack.

Energy Management - more stamina despite higher demands

Power Consumption

The Swift 5 subnotebook does not require a lot of power in general but still doesn't compare well with its competitors. It has a higher consumption while idling and its predecessor was 30% more economical on average. Only the Asus has a similar level of power consumption.

Peak loads remain below 30 watt, which means that the 65-watt AC adapter provides more than enough power for this device.

Battery Life

Battery use during the video test
Battery use during the video test

The battery has a capacity of 56 Wh and is supposed to last 12 hours. Acer had installed a 36-Wh battery in the last model, which had a negative impact on the battery life. Fortunately, we've got the larger capacity back this time.

The laptop managed at least 2 h 14 m in the synthetic tests (all power guzzlers turned on, high load) and a maximum of 14 h 45 m (minimum brightness, all power-saving options turned on, minimum load).

The Swift lasted almost 8 hours in the more important Wi-Fi test (performance set to two-thirds, brightness to 150 cd/m², browsing the web). The predecessor only managed just over 5 hours, so this is a clear improvement.

The video test (minimum performance, brightness set to 150 cd/m², H.264-encoded video in a loop) lasted just over 8 hours on our new Swift.

The improved battery life is only really noticeable in our Wi-Fi test - after all, the new model also consumes almost 30% more power. That was probably one of the main reasons Acer decided to switch back to a larger battery. Of the other competitors only the TravelMate does worse with a difference of around 11%. The Swift 7 manages around 26% longer runtimes despite having a smaller battery (31 Wh).

Verdict - good upgrade from Acer

The Acer Swift 5 SF514-54T, provided by Acer
The Acer Swift 5 SF514-54T, provided by Acer

We must compliment Acer for accepting and responding to criticism. The manufacturer has made many changes in the right places - and the result is impressive.

Most importantly, Acer has finally managed to get the performance right again. Our test unit was able to easily keep up with its competition - unlike its highly throttled predecessor. We are also pleased with the display that is finally brighter and has a matte surface. The increased brightness does not impact the contrast ratio, which has improved as well. Another positive change is the return to a larger battery and thus a longer battery life for the system. We were also surprised by the good SSD and general system performance as well as the 3D performance, which can beat the competition equipped with older Intel UHD Graphics chips. The faster Wi-Fi and the integration of Thunderbolt 3 complete the list of positives.

There is not much we can criticize about the current Swift 5. The USB 2.0 port could have been swapped for a more modern USB standard and the card reader is missing again. The port selection is also more limited than on other ultrabooks. We would also like to mention that the RAM is soldered on, which means that it cannot be exchanged or expanded. The power consumption has increased, which means that the battery life is average at best despite the larger battery capacity. The performance itself has improved, but the device still doesn't manage to make the most out of its CPU. But this can be put down to the usual necessary compromise between performance and cooling, which Acer has solved quite well for the Swift 5. 

A lot of praise and hardly any criticism for the new Swift 5. The 14-inch ultrabook is small and light, has a good touch screen and it offers the right performance. It seems to have been given a useful all-round upgrade compared to its predecessor.  

Considering these results, we are happy to recommend the new Acer, which is currently available for around $900.
