At the Acer press conference earlier this month, the public had their first impression of Iris Xe Max (Intel’s new discrete GPU for thin and light notebook computers). Today, Intel revealed the first wave of laptops including the GPU, some of which are now available in certain countries.
Laptops include Acer Swift 3X, Dell Inspiron 15 7000 2-in-1 and Asus VivoBook Flip TP470. Inspiron 15 is available in the United States at Best Buy. Acer has previously stated that it is expected to be listed in the United States in March. Both Swift 3X and Inspiron 15 can be purchased in China through JD.com. Intel said that ASUS VivoBook will soon be available in the United States and China.
Intel’s Iris Xe Max graphics are mainly used in portable systems for content creators. Roger Chandler, Intel Vice President and General Manager of Customer XPU Products and Solutions, said: “We set out to redefine the role of discrete graphics in thin and light notebooks and meet the needs of the growing number of creators who want more portability. .”statement.
The three new laptops also include Intel’s 11th-generation “Tiger Lake” mobile processor and Intel’s Deep Link technology, which allows certain applications to use discrete graphics and integrated graphics for creative work. Intel claims that the Tiger Lake system used with Iris Xe Max graphics can provide “seven times faster AI-based creation” than similar laptops using third-party GPUs.
The company also claims that its GPU can “provide excellent thin and light 1080p games on popular games.”We shouldn’t be excited about this until the benchmark is released-it’s certainly surprising to see such a large laptop running Microsoft Flight Simulator.However, the Iris Xe integrated graphics card does a good job in the following aspects: Overwatch Therefore, if Acer, Dell and Asus can control the heat dissipation, then you are likely to get a fare at a lower fare.
The starting price of the Acer Swift 3X is $899.99. This is a lightweight and portable machine with a good selection of ports and a beautiful screen. But our test unit has not been completed yet, so I cannot test the graphics. For creators, whether this system (and other similar systems) is worth the money depends largely on GPU performance, battery life, and display quality-so please pay attention to our upcoming reviews.
