Test: Acer Swift 5 SF514 (i5-8250U, UHD 620) Laptop (Sammanfattning)

Christian Hintze, 👁 Sebastian Jentsch (översatt av Daniel Eriksson), 06/25/2018

Lätt prestandasallad. Med en vikt på bara 930 gram verkar denna tryckkänsliga laptop vara den perfekta företagskollegan. Vi tar en närmare titt på mer än bara processorn och RAM-minnet. Vad har den för inneboende kompromisser och vad behövde Acer offra på vägen?

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
23 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 13 ms rise
↘ 10 ms fall
The screen shows good response rates in our tests, but may be too slow for competitive gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 28 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (25.6 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
37 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 17 ms rise
↘ 20 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.9 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 32 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is similar to the average of all tested devices (41 ms).

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM not detected

In comparison: 53 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 8656 (minimum: 43 - maximum: 142900) Hz was measured.

För

+ skaplig men aningen för mörk tryckkänslig skärm
+ bara 930 gram
+ 180 graders gångjärn
+ skaplig färgrymdstäckning
+ låg energiförbrukning

Emot

- extrem CPU-strypning, långsammare än sin egen föregångare
- knarrar, synbara mellanrum på locket
- begränsat portutbud, dålig placering
- tangentbordets layout är långt ifrån idealt
- skärmen är för mörk och reflekterar för mycket
- litet batteri, dålig batteritid

Att utvärdera och ranka Acer Swift 5 har varit en riktig utmaning, minst sagt. Dess låga vikt på under 1 kg är definitivt ett stort plus. Men på grund av den mörka och kraftigt reflekterande skärmen minskar mobiliteten avsevärt.

Positiva aspekter inkluderar en mer än skaplig skärm (bortsett för tidigare nämnda ljusstyrka), en tryckkänslig skärm, snabb SSD och låg energiförbrukning.

Den andra sidan av myntet visade sig dock vara ganska förödande. Framförallt var det den massiva strypning som enheten uppvisade och som reducerade prestandan markant (men även förklarade den låga energiförbrukningen). Swift 5 klarade av korta stötar helt okej men gav i princip upp helt och hållet när det kom till ihållande belastning - en kompromiss som gjorts nödvändig av den högst portabla och lätta designen. Till och med Swift 5:s egna föregångare visade sig vara snabbare. Batterikapaciteten föll också offer för den låga vikten och på grund av det offrades även batteritiden. Sist men inte minst var konstruktionskvaliteten långt ifrån perfekt.

Acer Swift 5 är en stor kompromiss i den låga viktens namn. Den riktar sig mot en väldigt specifik grupp användare som föredrar en särskilt lätt subnotebook istället för en högpresterande laptop.

Trots sin väldigt specifika målgrupp så anser vi att dom extrema strypningsproblemen behöver åtgärdas. Vår önskelista för en möjlig efterföljare inkluderar också en mer ljusstark skärm av samma kvalitet.
