Almost a month after its official presentation, we can already find in the United States the first laptops listed with a GPU Intel Arc A370Mthe company’s current high-end dedicated GPU that can be found in the market, and the Arc A550M, A730M and A770M are not expected to arrive until June.
The cheapest model is a asus zen book 2in1 with a 15.6 inch OLED touchscreen powered by this GPU with a Intel Core i7 of the Alder Lake family, 16 GB RAM and one 1TB SSD of capacity at the price of $1,399.99. Opposite, a 16-inch 2K+ HP Specter with the same hardware configuration for $1,999.99.
It must be taken into account that Intel Arc A370M suggest a setup 512 execution units at a frequency of 1550MHz with 4 GB of memory GDDR6 with a 64-bit memory interface and a consumption that will oscillate between 35-50W. Essentially, its performance is slightly lower than an AMD Radeon RX 6500M, so logically, to be an interesting option, any configuration with this GPU will have to offer slightly more attractive prices compared to solutions with AMD CPU or Intel + Radeon RX 6500M. Not only because it is less powerful, but because at the level of drivers the company is several steps behind its direct rival, and this must obviously be reflected in the cost of the equipment.
