The launch of the first dedicated graphics cards by Intel will begin in laptops, specifically in several models that we will see presented in a few days and which seek to occupy a space currently dominated by NVIDIA. As much for its almost extinct GTX as with the MX 550. The Samsung Galaxy Book2 Pro is the first laptop with an ARC Alchemist as a dedicated GPU. How is?
From Intel, they know very well the growing popularity of so-called ultra-thin gaming laptops, which combine a lightweight industrial design with performance well above the average expected from these computers. This allowed them to create a very lightweight laptop concept, but at the same time it doesn’t sacrifice performance compared to similar concepts of the past. ARC Alchemist low-end graphics cards for laptops may not be a panacea for gaming, but they are a step forward for those who want a laptop to carry around and use applications that greatly benefit from gaming. have a graphics card inside.
So we’re not dealing with equipment good enough for next-gen gaming, but it’s good enough for professional use in terms of content creation. Which makes them extremely portable workstations.
The Samsung Galaxy Book2 Pro is the first laptop with ARC Alchemist
It won’t be long until Intel makes its ARC Alchemist architecture launch presentation, however, ahead of the expected March 30th arrival, the first laptop has already been leaked, namely the Samsung Galaxy Book2 Pro, a ultra-thin laptop Also equipped with an Intel Core 12 processor inside. Which can already be purchased, indicating that, as we suspected, laptop models with Intel’s new dedicated graphics are already in their pre-launch phase.
As you can see this is not a high caliber laptop in terms of performance, its 16 GB of LPDDR5 memory He reveals it to us with his 2.1 GHz processor. In addition, everything indicates that it could be a model with a TDP of 15 W. Especially since its weight is only 1.13 Kg and as we can see in the images it is a very thin computer.
It is also not known what the specific graphics card model will be, as it may be an A350M or an A370; We can only say that it will surely be based on the DG2-128 chip and, therefore, the simplest of the ARC Alchemist, once again confirming that it is not a gaming team. What is certain is that the tandem between the CPU and the Intel’s GPU will enable the use of Intel’s Deep Link technologies. Let’s not forget that the ARC Alchemist architecture brings full support for DirectX 12 Ultimate, including Ray Tracing and support for real-time resolution scaling with Intel’s XeSS equivalent. of DLSS and FSR.
