AMD Ryzen 4700U Laptop

Acer Swift 3 (SF314-42) will start selling in March for 599 Euros in EMEA, and 4,499 RMB in China, while North American consumers will have to wait until May, and price starting at USD 599. It should also be noted Acer launched a similar laptop with a 13.5″ display and (up to) an Intel Core i7-1065G7 “Ice Lake” processor for $699. It’s very likely the starting prices are for entry-level versions of AMD Ryzen 4000U processors and Intel “Ice Lake” processors, but Acer did not specify in their press release.

Lets hope AMD start getting design wins with Chuwi and Teclast and all the high-value Chinese manufacturers so we can finally see relatively cheap laptops with decent performance and not rely on Intel’s gemini lake and its successors.

Wow, really starting to see see some serious power inside laptops and for a good price thanks for AMD!
Personally, i’m interested to see what Thinkpad models that will arive with these new AMD Mobile APUs.

Also these APUs might be interesting to see in other smaller and low power devices.

Where do you see this combination? Prices start at 600 bucks but all the performant options above are listed as ‘up to’ items. I wouldn’t be too surprised if the 600€ variant is a 4300U with 8 GB RAM and 256GB SSD. And personally I would never ever want to use such a low resolution display again anyway 🙂

BTW: What’s missing in the list above: USB-C carries also Thunderbolt 3…

Wrong. Thunderbolt 3 and DisplayPort only available on the Intel variant (which also features a better display). On the AMD variant USB-C carries only USB 3.1 Gen1.
