The new Acer Swift X is a thin and light laptop powered by a 12th-gen Intel Core processor and discrete graphics. Or actually, it’s two different laptops that match that description, because Acer is offering 14 and 16 inch models.

While specs are similar across both models, the larger Swift X has a higher resolution display and one other distinctive feature: it’ll be among the first laptops to ship with an Intel Arc discrete GPU, while the 14 inch model will instead ship with NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 Ti graphics.

Acer says both versions of the laptop have 16:10 displays and slim bezels for a 92% screen-to-body ratio. The displays support up to 400 nits brightness.

Both laptops have aluminum bodies, active cooling, and a thin design, measuring just about 0.7 inches thick. To help will cooling, there are dual heat pipes, a fan, and an air inlet that draws air through the keyboard area.

Acer says the laptops were co-engineered with Intel to meet the chip maker’s latest Evo specifications for responsiveness, battery life, and collaboration features.

Other features include two Thunderbolt 4 ports, two USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-A ports, an HDMI 2.0 port a fingerprint reader, and a full HD webcam.
