The Intel Arc A30M Pro is a discrete graphics card and, based on the new leak, should be released very soon – but Intel itself hasn’t mentioned it before.
Intel hasn’t technically revealed Arc Alchemist GPUs for workstations yet, but that’s exactly the graphics card featured in the new Dell Precision 5470 mobile workstation. Official, which means they can be very legitimate, and customizable workstations.
The 12th-generation Intel processors powering Dell’s new laptops come with integrated Intel Iris Xe graphics, but the laptops also offer the option of using a discrete graphics card.
In that regard, users can choose from the Nvidia RTX A1000 laptop’s GPU with 4GB of GDDR6 memory, or they can wait a little longer for the Intel Arc A30M Pro, marked “Coming Soon”.
Dell’s new mobile workstation is a 14-inch laptop with a 16:10 aspect ratio and a variety of Intel Alder Lake processors for users to choose from.
Starting with the mid-range Core i5-12500H with 12 cores, 16 threads and 18 MB cache, the Dell Precision 5470 also provides access to some of the best CPUs out there in workstations.
The top version comes with an Intel Core i9-12900H processor with 14 cores and 20 threads with a boost clock of 5.00GHz, and the wide range of high-quality CPUs means we’re dealing with high-end workstations. Aside from the Intel CPU and GPU combo, the laptops come with M.2 SSDs of various sizes, as well as up to 64GB of LPDDR5 memory clocked at 5200MHz. Users will be able to choose between three versions of Windows 11 and Linux. In addition to the workstation leak, another piece of information has surfaced: a well-known leaker on Twitter, momomo_us, shared a sketch of the Intel Arc design for the Gen 12.7 architecture, and this was first shared by Wccftech.
After a long wait, the Intel Arc Alchemist is finally almost here, marking the beginning of Intel’s career in the discrete graphics sector.
Intel has started with laptop GPUs, including the A370M and A350M, which will provide a performance boost over current Iris Xe solutions. We know for a fact that these laptop graphics cards are slated to launch on March 30th, but there has been no confirmation of a release date for the workstation-based A30M Pro, however with Dell already starting to spread the news it couldn’t be farther away.
