Acer is introducing its first Copilot+ PC, the Swift 14 AI, which has optimized AI features, and is powered by Snapdragon X Elite and X Plus platforms with an integrated NPU.

The Acer Swift 14 AI boasts all-day battery life, supports next-generation AI features in Windows 11; Recall, Cocreator, Live Captions, new Windows Studio Effects, and Auto Super Resolution. Developed in collaboration with Microsoft and Qualcomm Technologies, Inc., the NPUs enable on-device AI processing for streamlining tasks.

The Snapdragon X Series processors are built for AI and are designed to be among the most powerful, intelligent, and power efficient processors created for Windows in its class today, says Acer. The Swift 14 AI features 12 high-performance CPU cores on a 4nm process node, integrated Qualcomm Adreno GPU of 3.8 TFLOPS, and Qualcomm Hexagon NPU.

It is also equipped with up to 32 GB memory and an up to 1 TB SSD. Additional features include Recall that make it easy to find something like a file, e-mail, or webpage by simply describing it, and Live Captions with live translations or virtually any live or pre-recorded video. It can even translate from 44 languages to English via subtitles. Use Cocreator with visual or written prompts to create AI images and text, and Auto Super Resolution to upscale graphics and frame refresh rates of games in real-time.

Windows Studio Effects work with videocalls to help improve lighting, cancel out unwanted noise, and activate artistic filters on a video platform via Quick settings. Naturally, the laptop also includes Copilot, the AI assistant that’s accessible via the dedicated Copilot key.

The Acer Swift 14 AI sports a refined Copilot+ PC-exclusive design, highlighted by an AI icon stamped on the cover of the thin-and-light chassis and an Activity Indicator on the touchpad that illuminates when the device or Copilot is activated. It comes equipped with a 14.5-inch WQXGA (2,560 x 1,600) IPS display with a 120Hz refresh rate and support for 100% sRGB colour gamut. It is available with edge-to-edge touchscreen options and comes with TÜV Rheinland Eyesafe Certification 2.0 to help minimize the effects of harmful blue light without sacrificing colour accuracy. A 180-degree hinge design provides the flexibility of a different user mode and enables easy opening of the aluminum cover with one hand.

A 1440p QHD IR webcam with a triple microphone array and privacy shutter supports Acer’s suite of AI-boosted conferencing tools in Acer PurifiedView 2.0 and Acer PurifiedVoice 2.0. These can be calibrated thanks to Acer QuickPanel which intuitively appears when the device’s webcam or microphone has been switched on. A dedicated key directs users to the AcerSense app for device management and a library of AI features available on the device through the Experience Zone. 

This Copilot+ PC comes with Windows Hello that supports biometric and facial recognition login for quick and secure access. It has Wi-Fi 7 and Bluetooth 5.4 connectivity to deliver speeds of up to 5.8 Gbps and low network latency of under 2 ms, plus two USB Type-C and two USB 3.2 Type-A ports.
