Laptop manufacturer, CLEVO, has teased its next-gen X270 Enthusiast Laptop, claiming it to be the first Intel CPU & GPU Gaming laptop, powered by Alder Lake-H and Arc A770M discrete graphics.
Intel Arc A770M Flagship Discrete GPU To Be Featured Inside CLEVO's X270 Enthusiast Gaming Laptop
CLEVO posted a short teaser video that showcases the X270 Enthusiast Gaming laptop. We don't know how CLEVO came to the conclusion that this is the first Intel CPU and Intel GPU-powered gaming laptop since there are several laptops on the market now that offer such configurations. The most logical explanation is that CLEVO meant the first laptop with an Intel CPU and a high-end Arc GPU but still, the laptop hasn't yet launched so other vendors may come out with their high-end Arc-powered solutions first.
Well, in any case, the CLEVO X270 is definitely the first 'announced' laptop solution that features the Intel Arc A770M discrete graphics chip. This is the flagship Arc GPU for the mobility segment & has some decent specifications.
The Intel Arc A770M GPU will be equipped with the full ACM-G10 configuration, utilizing 32 Xe-Cores for 4096 ALUs, 32 ray tracing units, a graphics clock of 1650 MHz, up to 16 GB GDDR6 memory that operates across a 256-bit wide bus interface, and a TDP target of 120-150W. This is comparable to the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti Max-Q variant.
Intel Arc A-Series Mobility GPU Lineup:
|Graphics Card Variant||GPU Variant||GPU Die||Execution Units||Shading Units (Cores)||Memory Capacity||Memory Speed||Memory Bus||TGP|
|Arc A770M||Xe-HPG 512EU||Arc ACM-G10||512 EUs||4096||16 GB GDDR6||16 Gbps||256-bit||120-150W|
|Arc A730M||Xe-HPG 384EU||Arc ACM-G10||384 EUs||3072||12 GB GDDR6||14 Gbps||192-bit||80-120W|
|Arc A550M||Xe-HPG 256EU||Arc ACM-G10||256 EUs||2048||8 GB GDDR6||14 Gbps||128-bit||60-80W|
|Arc A370M||Xe-HPG 128EU||Arc ACM-G11||128 EUs||1024||4 GB GDDR6||14 Gbps||64-bit||35-50W|
|Arc A350M||Xe-HPG 96EU||Arc ACM-G11||96 EUs||768||4 GB GDDR6||14 Gbps||64-bit||25-35W|
Other than that, the laptop will also rock a high-end Intel Alder Lake-H CPU. CLEVO doesn't seem to be utilizing the higher-end Alder Lake-HX CPUs but that could be done due to power constraints. We have already seen laptops going over 250W with Intel's Alder Lake-HX CPUs and RTX 3080 Ti GPU configurations. So for Alder Lake-H, we can expect up to 14 cores at max versus the 16-cores that the 'HX' lineup offers.
In terms of design, the laptop utilizes a 17.3" Mini LED display panel with a 99Wh battery. The internal cooling includes a 7-Heatpipe cooling solution with dual-fans and CLEVO also seems to be using Liquid Metal TIM (Thermal Interface Material), providing a 10C drop in temps vs a standard heatsink paste solution. I/O includes dual 2-in-1 audio jacks, dual USB 3.2 Gen 2 ports, a pair of Thunderbolt 4 ports, an Ethernet LAN port, Mini-DP plus HDMI display outputs on the back along with a DC-in power plug. There's no word on pricing or availability but one can expect the X270 laptop with Intel's Arc A770M graphics chip to launch by the end of 2022 considering the latest delays.
