Team Blue isn’t the only one invading this year’s laptop with their 13th Gen Intel Core mobile series processors because AMD is doing the same with the new Ryzen 7000 series offerings and Acer’s Nitro and Swift series are going for them as well.
Since they are more or less the same as the Intel counterpart, let’s breeze through them. As the title suggests, the CPU and GPU will be an AMD Ryzen 7000 and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 40 series Laptop GPU combo with RAM and storage support going as high as 32GB DDR5-5600 and 2TB PCIe 4.0 SSD. Display options are maintained at FHD 144Hz/165Hz or QHD 165Hz while the Thunderbolt 4 has been replaced with USB 4 as the only change for the I/O department.
As for the Swift Go 14, the CPU will be the solo member here as there’s no discreet GPU to help it out but as a result, it is light and thin. 16GB of LPDDR5 RAM and a maximum of 2TB PCIe 4.0 SSD can be fitted to fire up the system with a screen of 14-inch 2.8K at a 90Hz refresh rate. Notable features include the 1440p webcam with Temporal Noise Reduction, AI noise-canceling microphone, and Automatic Framing, as well as a standard set of I/Os like HDMI 2.1, USB 4, and microSD card reader.
The AMD versions of the 2023 Acer Nitro 16, Nitro 17, and Swift Go 14 will be launched in the following month, and price:
- Nitro 16 – Starts from USD1,149.99 launching in May
- Nitro 17 – Starts from USD1,199.99 launching in May
- Swift Go 14 – Starts from USD849.99 launching in June
