Intel's flagship Arc Alchemist GPU spotted in a gaming laptop

Intel's best laptop graphics card, the A770M, is found in a high-end gaming laptop announced by Clevo, paired with an Intel Alder Lake mobile processor.

Clevo makes laptops that are customized by other manufacturers and then sold under their own brands (for example, Eurocom and XMG use Clevo designs), and the company just revealed the Clevo X270 on YouTube (opens in a new tab) (as saw in the well-known leak of HXL material on Twitter).

More info

The X270 comes with an Arc Alchemist A770M, the flagship of Intel's new laptop GPUs, along with an Alder Lake H-series CPU.

The short teaser video also notes that a solid cooling system has been implemented to ensure thermal temperatures remain favorable despite the hardware packaged here, in theory anyway, including a liquid metal gasket for the CPU to ensure that the temperatures are 10 degrees lower than they would otherwise. would be (or is the request). There's also a multitude of copper heat pipes, seven of them, to facilitate better cooling of internal components (there's also a couple of fans).

Not much else is revealed about the specs aside from the gaming laptop having a 17.3-inch Mini-LED display, and the array of included ports includes a pair of Thunderbolt connectors.

Review: A fast laptop, to be sure, hopefully it's coming soon

This laptop should be pretty fast when it comes to frame rates given this combination of an Alder Lake H-series chip and the Arc Alchemist A770M. That said, we don't yet know which 12th Gen Intel mobile processor will be used, but we expect it to be one of the hotter Core i7 or probably Core i9 models given that it's paired with Intel's flagship GPU.

The other thing we don't know yet is the exact performance of the A770M, but we hope it doesn't disappoint: we've already seen comparisons in the ballpark of the RTX 3060 or 3060 Ti (take those leaks with a grain of salt, of course).

Either way, the touch power should be pretty impressive considering Clevo opted to run a Mini-LED panel here, marking this laptop as a more premium gaming model (and as such, it wouldn't be slow).

Unfortunately, we don't know when this gaming laptop is expected to launch, as the teaser clip doesn't give us any idea. But its very presence surely indicates that the X270, and more specifically, gaming laptop models based on the design, shouldn't be far behind...
