Acer has been making laptops and products for both the mass consumers and the niche markets for a while now and their constant push to bring the next generation products in the hands of consumers only goes to prove that the brand hears consumers. With 2020 being an unexpected year filled with Working from Home and Learning from Home, the sudden surge in need of a Laptop skyrocketed to a point that good ones remained out of stock for a long while. But as they always say, some things are worth the wait and Acer Malaysia brought in their new slew of laptops with much better processors and performance, powered by the latest 11th Generation Intel® Coreᵀᴹ Processors under the hood.
Intel® Coreᵀᴹ 11th Generation Processors
Each and every laptop from Acer Malaysia during their Elemental Launch was announced with the latest 11th Generation Tiger Lake Intel® Coreᵀᴹ Processors which they claim to have improved the performance on mobile laptops and it goes without saying Acer has a slew of lineup for every kind of consumers out there – be it the remarkably familiar Intel® Coreᵀᴹ Processors, their newly announced Intel® Iris® Xᵉ MAX Discrete GPU, or the Intel® Evo™ Platform Certified Laptops.
The Laptop for everyone: Acer Swift 3
The Acer Swift 3 is like the friendly neighborhood laptop that does everything regarding productivity and a little bit of headroom for the latest Intel® Iris® Xᵉ Integrated GPU. With the thin and light profile, it makes it a good option for someone who is looking for that better portability and not feel like a burden to carry their laptop everywhere they go.
It runs the latest Intel 11th Generation Intel® Coreᵀᴹ processors, and you can go up to a Core i7 with up to 16GB of LPDDR4X on board RAM and coupled with a super-fast NVMe Storage. The laptop comes with Microsoft Office Home and Student 2019 pre-installed for you to get going with your school or university work without worrying about forking out extra dime for Office suite.
The Laptop with Intel’s First Discrete GPU: Acer Swift 3ˣ
If you love the Swift 3 but wanted a little more power in the GPU department, well the Swift 3ˣ is here for that. While it may seem like the simple and neat looking laptop that is – the laptop houses Intel’s very first Discrete GPU under that slightly thicker laptop – the Intel® Iris® Xᵉ MAX. It gives good performance all thanks to its dedicated 4GB of Memory to handle Graphics Intensive tasks but what if your laptop needs more power? Well, fret not because the Swift 3ˣ is powered with the 11th Generation Intel® Coreᵀᴹ Processors and together it activates Intel® Deep Link, an AI that load balanced your task efficiently.

Project Athena turned Intel® Evo™ Platform Certified Laptop: Acer Swift 5
Remember when Intel announced Project Athena? If you do not, it is alright. The whole idea behind Project Athena is to create laptops with three main criteria in mind: Fast Boot times, Consistent Performance and Better Battery Life.
After the successful announcement of the Project Athena and the laptops under it fulfilling the criteria, Intel finally gave it a name: Intel Evo – now the Intel® Evo™ Platform Certified Laptops are based on Intel’s requirements and they perform accordingly – the Acer Swift 5 is one of the laptops to have the Intel® Evo™ Platform Certified Processor under the hood, which is of course – is the 11th Generation Intel® Coreᵀᴹ Processors. But if you are wondering if it is really true, you can watch our video on it below.
There you have it – these are the new Laptops from Acer Malaysia that touts not only the 11th Generation Intel® Coreᵀᴹ Processors badge on the laptop but also comes with the phenomenal performance Intel surprised us when they announced the Mobile Lineup of Processors. If you want to get your hands on one of the laptops to go with your work in 2021, you are making a great choice.
