Acer is reportedly beefing up a pair of its notebook lines with new chip muscle as AMD’s mobile processor is landing in Acer’s Nitro 5 and Swift 3, according to a report.
The computer maker has said that the Nitro 5 and Swift 3 notebooks would be powered by the second generation of AMD’s Ryzen mobile processor. The announcement comes a week before the start of the Computex tech show in Taiwan, CNET reported.
The Nitro 5 — a notebook aimed at gamers — is getting the second-generation Ryzen 7 3750H processor and the Radeon RX 560X graphics card.
“Users can expect stunning visuals and responsive performance from the new AMD technology,” the report quoted Acer as saying.
The productivity-focused Swift 3 is getting the second-generation Ryzen 7 3700U processor and Radeon Vega graphics card. Acer says the notebook’s power can perform computing-intensive tasks such as video editing and tackle casual gaming.
The beefier notebooks will be on display at Acer’s Computex booth from May 28 through June 2.
