Intel Arc A370M in Bapco CrossMark test
Intel Arc A370M is an entry-level graphics card from the upcoming Arc Alchemist series.
According to a new entry over at the Bapco website, the Arc A370M system was tested with a CrossMark benchmark. This benchmark tool is a cross-platform productivity test that should not be considered a GPU test in any way, though.
The Arc A370M GPU has been spotted in a laptop equipped with Intel’s latest 12th Gen Core i7-12800H 14-core and 20-thread processor. It appears to be a qualification board as the system is being detected as ‘Intel Corporation AlderLake-P DDR5 RVP’. This means it’s an engineering test sample system equipped with DD5-4800 memory.
This is not the first time the ARC A370 processor appears on our website. At CES 2022, Acer confirmed it will launch a new Swift X laptop with this processor on board. This information was clearly not meant to be published at that time, because it confirmed Arc Alchemist series naming. This has not even yet been done by Intel themselves. It is also worth noting that the A370M also appeared in a test driver that Intel accidentally published.
In terms of specs, the A370M appears to be an entry-level GPU featuring a DG2-128EU processor. In comparison to A350M, it should feature the full implementation of the GPU, thus it should be called “SKU4” according to Intel’s own internal naming.
The Arc A370M will therefore feature 128 Execution Units, 4GB GDDR6 memory clocked at 14 Gbps attached to a 64-bit memory bus. So by definition, this design should compete with AMD Navi 24 and NVIDIA GA107 GPUs.
Intel ARC Alchemist series should make their way to first laptops by the end of this quarter. Intel has not provided any further details on its discrete gaming GPU series though.
