Acer is beefing up a pair of its notebook lines with new chip muscle.
The computer maker said Wednesday that the Nitro 5 and Swift 3 notebooks would be powered by the second generation of AMD's Ryzen mobile processor. The announcement comes a week before the start of the Computex tech show in Taiwan.
The Nitro 5 -- a notebook aimed at gamers -- is getting the second-generation Ryzen 7 3750H processor and the Radeon RX 560X graphics card. "Users can expect stunning visuals and responsive performance from the new AMD technology," Acer said in a statement.
The productivity-focused Swift 3 is getting the second-generation Ryzen 7 3700U processor and Radeon Vega graphics card. Acer says the notebook's power can perform computing-intensive tasks such as video editing and tackle casual gaming.
The beefier notebooks will be on display at Acer's Computex booth from May 28 through June 2.
