Acer Announces Swift 3 Laptop with GeForce MX250 GPU

First GeForce MX250-Equipped Laptop Spotted

NVIDIA quietly introduced the MX250 mobile GPU recently. This is utilizing the Pascal GPU and uses GDDR5 memory. Although interestingly, it does not seem to offer a performance upgrade in comparison to the previous released MX150. In fact, it is a step back, even going by NVIDIA’s official specifications.

According to them, the MX250 only performs up to 3.5X the Intel UHD620. Whereas the older MX150 performs up to 4X the same GPU.

Nevertheless, the first laptop spotted (via Laptopmain) with this new GPU is Acer’s Swift 3. It is a 14-inch laptop with a 1920 x 1080 IPS display.
