Courte critique du PC portable Acer Swift 3 SF314-51-731X

Nino Ricchizzi (traduit par Nicolas L), 01/14/2017

Un compagnon apprécié. Des matériaux de haute qualité accompagnent des composants réactifs, pour une bonne impression. Même si la luminosité de l'écran ne semble pas au niveau des standards modernes, ce nouvel Acer Swift 3 représentera globalement un bon achat.

You can choose between two colors.
The new Swift 3 gets …
… a sophisticated chassis.
A fingerprint scanner…
…as integrated security feature.
The webcam does its job.
The Swift 3 is a solid subnotebook …
…thanks to high-quality materials.
A look inside the chassis…
…is possible with some fiddling.
You can replace the CMOS battery.
The storage drive can be replaced as well.

Temps de réponse de l'écran

Le temps de réponse d'un écran mesure la rapidité à laquelle l'écran est capable de changer une couleur pour une autre. Un temps de réponse élevé se traduit par une image floutée pour les objets en mouvement. Les joueurs bénéficieront de faibles latences d'affichage en jeu.
       Temps de réponse noir à blanc
24 ms ... hausse ↗ et chute ↘ combinées↗ 8 ms hausse
↘ 16 ms chute
L'écran montre de bons temps de réponse, mais insuffisant pour du jeu compétitif.
En comparaison, tous les appareils testés affichent entre 0.8 (minimum) et 240 (maximum) ms. » 28 % des appareils testés affichent de meilleures performances.
Cela signifie que les latences relevées sont meilleures que la moyenne (26.7 ms) de tous les appareils testés.
       Temps de réponse gris 50% à gris 80%
42 ms ... hausse ↗ et chute ↘ combinées↗ 18 ms hausse
↘ 24 ms chute
L'écran souffre de latences très élevées, à éviter pour le jeu.
En comparaison, tous les appareils testés affichent entre 0.9 (minimum) et 636 (maximum) ms. » 52 % des appareils testés affichent de meilleures performances.
Cela signifie que les latences relevées sont similaires à la moyenne (42.8 ms) de tous les appareils testés.

Scintillement / MLI (Modulation de largeur d'impulsion)

Afin d'abaisser la luminosité de l'écran, certains ordinateurs portables font varier très rapidement le rétroéclairage entre éteint et allumé. La fréquence à laquelle le rétroéclairage s'éteint et se rallume est normalement fixée à une valeur qui permet de rendre la variation indétectable à l'œil nu? Si la fréquence est trop basse, certaines personnes peuvent être sujettes à une fatigue oculaire, des maux de tête ou même percevoir les variations.
Scintillement / MLI (Modulation de largeur d'impulsion) non décelé

En comparaison, 57 % des appareils testés n'emploient pas MDI pour assombrir leur écran. Nous avons relevé une moyenne à 6262 (minimum : 43 - maximum : 142900) Hz dans le cas où une MDI était active.

Verdict

In review: Acer Swift 3. Test model courtesy of Acer Germany.
In review: Acer Swift 3. Test model courtesy of Acer Germany.

Le Swift 3 représente une entrée réussie dans la gamme subnotebook. Son châssis en aluminium est sophistiqué et ne se prête pas à beaucoup de critiques. L'accès aux composants internes pour leur maintenance aurait cependant pu être plus facile. Les périphériques d'entrée se révèlent surprenants de qualité, le touchpad en particulier exécute de nombreux mouvements multidigitaux sans problème. Cette fonctionnalité place le 14" en très bonne position pour devenir un compagnon de travail idéal. Le premier gros problème concerne l'écran, tout simplement trop sombre à notre goût. La gamme d'Asus dont nous nous sommes servis comme point de comparaison suffit à démontrer que la moyenne des dalles dans cette gamme de prix est nettement plus lumineuse. L'aspect du Swift 3 que nous apprécions sans doute le plus est sa polyvalence en termes de performances. Même sous des charges de calcul extrêmes, le modèle ne rencontre pas de souci majeur. Le développement de chaleur ainsi que le comportement des ventilateurs sont la plupart du temps sans reproche. Seule l'autonomie de batterie pâlit devant la concurrence.

Il n'est pas parfait, mais montre l'exemple : l'Acer Swift 3 convainc aussi bien en tant qu'appareil de travail que pour le multimédia.

Si votre budget peut être étendu davantage, jetez un œil au Dell XPS 13. Avec son très bon écran, une autonomie de batterie plus longue et de bonnes performances graphique, il représente une alternative de qualité. Le port Thunderbolt 3 assure de plus un meilleur potentiel pour l'extension des interfaces, en nombre limité, grâce au support PCIe et sa large bande passante. Le ZenBook d'Asus est lui particulièrement intéressant pour les utilisateurs les plus mobiles. En plus de son autonomie de batterie supérieure, il possède un écran très lumineux.

Les points positifs de l'Asus ZenBook que nous avons listés sont aussi applicables pour un concurrent d'Acer lui-même, l'Aspire S 13 (en anglais), à un prix lui aussi similaire.
