As part of the renewal of its general catalog, Acer has announced the Swift 3 OLED. This laptop is characterized by being one of the first general equipment with an organic screen, and serves to prove that little by little we are going to see a growing number of equipment with an OLED screen for all audiences, and not just for designers or players.
Entering flour, the Swift 3 OLED is equipped with a 14-inch OLED panel and WQXGA + resolution (2880 x 1800) certified as VESA DisplayHDR True Black 500, which means that it can display peaks of up to 500 nits. As usual, it has a very wide color, covering 100% of the DCI-P3 space, and although it is not a screen designed for games, its speed is remarkable, with a refresh rate of 90 Hz and a declared response time of only 0 .2 ms.
The rest of the card lives up to what is expected in a laptop announced at this time, with 12th generation Intel Core H-series processors, integrated Iris Xe graphics, storage in PCIe SSD drives and up to 16 GB of LPDDR5 RAM. Connectivity options include two USB-A ports, two USB-C ports (one of them Thunderbolt 4), an HDMI 2.1 output, and a headphone jack.
Acer will launch the Swift 3 OLED in July with a base price of 999 euros. Unfortunately, the company has not communicated the details of the most affordable configuration, but a priori it seems competitive with respect to the HP ENVY x360, also with OLED screen but convertible design and equipped with older hardware.
