First gaming laptop with Intel Arc A730M launches in China
“Big” Alchemist is finally ‘available’ for preorder.
If you live in China, there is your chance to become one of the first owners of the high-end Intel Arc Alchemist GPU. Machenike has released its Discovery Edition 2022 gaming system, packing Intel Alder Lake and Intel Arc A-Series GPU.
This is a thin 16-inch laptop featuring 2.5K resolution at 165Hz. It is equipped with a 14-core Intel Core i7-12700H processor and Arc A730M GPU. This laptop is the first ACM-G10 based system that went on sale, which is why this is an important moment when Intel finally enters the premium gaming space, at least sort of.
Intel Arc A730M features 24 Xe-Cores (3072 FP32 cores). It is equipped with 12GB GDDR6 memory across a 192-bit memory bus. It is therefore a cut-down version of the A770M which has 1024 more cores, 256-bit wide bus and also faster memory (16 Gbps vs 14 Gbps).
The laptop is listed at 8599 RMB (1274 USD), but there is a promo on June 6th during which one can buy it for 7499 RMB (1112 USD), which seems to be a really good price for a similarly spec’ed system. This offer is a preorder, there is no word on the shipping date for this system.
