Another Arc A-Series MXM GPU
The adoption of Arc MXM GPUs is expanding to a new brand.
In late January, GUNNIR, thus far the biggest board partner for Intel discrete GPUs, announced the availability of the MXM GPUs based on the Arc Alchemist series.
MXM (Mobile PCI Express Module) is a form factor specification for graphics cards used in laptops and other mobile devices. The MXM form factor allows for a standardized interface and physical size, making it easier for manufacturers to design and produce laptops with swappable graphics cards.
As laptops get smaller and thinner, the popularity of MXM GPUs is slowly declining. However, there are still many laptops out there that could benefit from an upgraded GPU, as long as the cooling system is compatible. The MXM GPUs also find their use in small form factor PCs, so there is a good reason for Adlink to support for form factor, specially with low-power GPUs such as Intel Arc.
According to PCWatch, this MXM card has 8 Intel Xe Cores (128 Execution Units), 4GB of GDDR6 memory and PCIe Gen4 x8 interface. The TGP is reportedly set to 50W. Such specs are typical for Arc A370M GPU. The company also confirms there is an A350M version.
