According to VideoCardz, the first laptop with an Intel Arc GPU is the Acer Swift X. This is a thin 14 “laptop, which is not aimed at gamers. The current model contains a maximum of one Nvidia RTX 3050 Ti video card.
VideoCardz claims that the 2022 version of the Acer Swift X is the first laptop in which an Intel Arc Alchemist GPU is placed. Due to the compact dimensions of the laptop, this is probably a variant that consumes relatively little. It could be the DG2-128EU configuration, which is expected to be released as the Arc A350 and Arc A380. This GPU would offer performance comparable to that of the laptop version of Nvidia’s GTX 1650 Ti.
The 2021 version of the Acer Swift X will have Tiger Lake-H35 processors or Ryzen 5000U variants. The video card is now a maximum of an RTX 3050 Ti with a tgp of 40W. The new model may get a 28W laptop processor from the new Alder Lake-P series, VideoCardz suggests.
Acer will officially announce its new laptops on Tuesday. That coincides with the start of the CES electronics show, where Intel and AMD will announce new laptop processors and video cards. Nvidia also presents new hardware.
