Intel’s Arc A730M GPU has debuted in China with regional OEM Machenike’s Discovery Edition 2022 gaming laptop. The notebook is powered by the 12th Gen Core i7-12700H (6P+8E cores) CPU, the Arc A730M GPU, and 16GB of DDR5-4800 memory. It has an impressive 16″ 1440p display with a refresh rate of 165Hz which covers the entirety of the sRGB color spectrum. The GPU features 24 Xe-Cores, 12GB GDDR6 memory, and a 256-bit bus. This puts it somewhere along with the NVIDIA RTX 3050 Ti, and 3060 mobile.
The laptop has a starting price of 8,499 RMB or $1,255 USD which is quite impressive as comparable Intel-NVIDIA SKUs cost at least $1,499 in the US. It’s unclear when these will be available in the rest of the world, but I’d expect a post-summer launch.
