Schenker to offer Intel Arc A730M based gaming laptop for €899
Intel NUC X15 Arc combines Core i7-12700H with Arc A730M
Intel NUC systems are not diminishing in the market; in fact, more partners and retailers are actively incorporating them into their product offerings. The most recent system to enter the roster in Europe is Intel NUC X15.
Schenker and XMG have chosen to make their system available through the retail platform known as Bestware, and this will introduce laptops from the NUC X15 series alongside their primary product lineup (Schenker & XMG). Notably, Schenker has opted not to brand the NUC X15 as their own. The NUC X15 can be considered a reference platform, akin to reference designs for graphics cards, for other OEMs to utilize as their base. In this case, no branding will be applied.
The NUC X15 laptop kit boasts a configuration featuring the Intel Core i7-12700H CPU, equipped with 12 cores, and the Intel Arc A730M graphics, particularly the variant with 12GB memory. This is the second-best Alchemist mobile graphics from Intel, which will be limited to 75W TGP. The NUC X15 Kit systems can support up to 64GB DDR5-4800 memory, though this customization naturally leads to an increase in cost.
The NUC X15 Laptop Kit sports a Full-HD display with a 144Hz refresh rate, impressive 90% sRGB color coverage, and a brightness level of 300 nits. It also includes a 2.5GbE network card and Wi-Fi 6 support.
In terms of dimensions, the system measures 358.26 x 235 x 22.2 mm and weighs a mere 2 kg. With its sleek design, the 15.6-inch Intel NUC X15 Arc positions itself among the lightweight and slim laptops in its performance category. Additionally, the Intel NUC X15 Arc incorporates a 62 Wh battery with selectable charging profiles for maximizing battery lifespan, a Windows Hello-compatible webcam, a Microsoft Precision-compliant glass touchpad, and a keyboard with customizable single-zone RGB lighting.
As per Schenker, this laptop will initially be available for €899, which includes 16GB DDR5-4800 memory and a 500GB Samsung 980 SSD. This pricing is promotional and is expected to increase to €999 by the end of September.
