Acer’s new fan-less 2-in-1 offers many interesting features
Tech giant Acer’s newly unveiled fanless 2-in-1 notebook, which is the latest in the Switch range, boats Intel’s most up-to-date processors in addition to discrete Nvidia graphics. Unveiled yesterday at IFA in Berlin, the new Switch 7 Black Edition features a 13.5-inch display (2256 by 1504), Intel’s 8th-generation Core i7 chip and Nvidia’s MX150 GPU.
The company also managed to keep the new notebook’s less than 2.5 pounds in weight, thanks partly to its brushed-aluminum exterior.
However, in other devices like new Predator Orion 9000 desktop, the company is using what is being called IceTunnel 2.0 that divides the interior into a number of “thermal zones” to manage airflow more competently.
The company said in a statement, “Part of the airflow is redirected towards the back of the motherboard tray to cool the storage devices. The graphic cards feature blower-style fans to drive the heat out from the back, while the PSU is self-contained to avoid thermal interference.”
Acer has plans to release the Switch 7 Black Edition sometime in December, with a starting price tag of $1,699.
