Intel Precision laptops with Intel Arc AX0M PRO GPUs
A new leak suggest Dell will be one of the first enablers of the Arc PRO series in the mobile market.
Intel has not told us anything about the workstation Arc GPUs yet, except for the fact that they launch in the third quarter. What is obviously missing are SKUs names, specs and their performance figures.
According to the latest leak from @Emerald_x86, Dell will be launching a successor to Precision 7760 workstation laptop with 12th Gen Core series CPUs and Intel discrete GPUs. What is important to note are Alder Lake-HX series, which are yet unreleased desktop-class processors with increased TDP to 55W. Interestingly, the specs published by the leaker only mention 8-core configurations, despite the fact that they top at 16-cores.
Furthermore, the leak mentions Intel DG2 SKU 2 GPU or Intel professional graphics at 90W or 125W. We can only speculate about the configuration, but the TDP would match gaming Arc A730M.
The Comet Lake-H based Precision 7760 mobile workstation laptop is obviously not the latest version. It has since then been updated to Tiger Lake-H and is now offered with up to NVIDIA RTX A5000 graphics (GA104) GPU. Therefore, one might assume that the specs listed above are a bit outdated (and we are talking months here).
Interestingly, this is not the only Dell Precision laptop to be mentioned alongside unreleased Arc PRO series. In late March (so just about the same time Emerald’s tweet was made), ITHome published specs of a mid-range Precision 5470 laptop. The difference between Precision 7 and 5 series are obvious, the latter is equipped Alder Lake-H(45) CPUs and low-power Arc A30M Pro graphics, while 7 series get 55W Alder HX series as well as 90W+ graphics.
The release date of both systems is currently unknown, but if Intel claims are to believed, then workstation Arc GPUs should launch in the third quarter this year.
