Acer’s upcoming laptops will include AMD Ryzen 4000 mobile processors

They’ll start as low as $519

By Monica Chin, The Verge

Acer has announced that it will release a new version of its Aspire 5 laptop this year, powered by AMD’s Ryzen 5 4500U mobile chip. The company has also revealed the release date for its Ryzen-powered Swift 3. 

With both lines, Acer aims to provide fairly slim products at an affordable price; reviewers often note that the devices look and feel more expensive than they are. The U-Series, which both laptops incorporate, is designed for ultraportable devices.

The 14-inch Swift 3 includes the 15W Ryzen 7 4700U, with eight cores, eight threads, and 2.0 GHz base speeds that can boost up to 4.1 GHz. It’s comprised of an aluminum chassis and a magnesium-aluminum lid; the company describes it as “svelte and stylish.” It also includes up to 16GB of RAM and up to 512GB of storage, as well as a 1080p display. Acer promises 11.5 hours of battery life.

Intel and AMD are going head-to-head in a number of laptops this year, and if AMD isn’t your speed, you can also currently buy a configuration with Intel’s 10th-Gen Core i5 processors.

The Ryzen-powered Swift 3 starts at $629 and will be available in April.

The 15.6-inch Aspire 5 features up to 24GB of RAM and an SSD of up to 1TB. It’s cheaper than the Swift 3, but doesn’t pack quite as much power; the 15W 4500OU has six cores, six threads, and 2.3 GHz clock speeds that can boost up to 4.0 GHz. (The Ryzen 5 and Ryzen 7 demarkations line up with Intel’s Core i5 and Core i7, respectively). Acer is marketing the Aspire 5 as a budget option for families and small businesses.

The Aspire 5’s AMD configuration starts at $519, and will hit stores in June. You can also purchase the Aspire 5 now with Intel’s 10th-Gen Core i7 and Core i5 chips.
