Acer Ditches Intel For AMD Ryzen Processors On New Acer Swift 3 – Release February 9

After the public revelations this week and last week that several Intel processors have up until now had undisclosed flaws, a lot of people immediately started looking for alternative processor for Windows devices, of which there are only AMD for Windows computers at the moment:

Acer is about to release their new 2018 Acer Swift 3 series of Windows 10 laptops on February 9, and there they've ditched Intel altogether in favour of AMD processors instead. The predecessor from 2017 had Intel Core processors.

But the Acer Swift 3 2018 models are 15.6-inch Windows 10 laptops with options of 3.8 GHz AMD Ryzen 7 2700U and 3.6 GHz AMD Ryzen 5 2500 procesors instead.

The screen has a Full HD 1920 x 1080 resolution display and even Gorilla Glass for protection and durability. It has 8GB of DDR4 RAM, and options of 256GB or 512GB of SSD storage.

It otherwise has all the bells and whistles of a modern laptop, with fingerprint reader, USB C port, backlit keyboard, and full Wi-Fi cover.
