Samsung Galaxy Book2 Pro equipped with Intel Arc graphic is on offer for $1349.99

Intel will hold an event called “A New Stage of the Game” on March 30, 2022, at 8:00 am PT to release the first Intel Arc brand Alchemist graphics card. Intel has confirmed in the previous 2022 investor meeting that the first batch of Arc brand discrete graphics cards will be for notebook platforms, and the model is likely to be A370M.

Although it is still ten days before Intel’s conference, manufacturers have already made preparations. Previously, Samsung’s Galaxy Book2 Pro and Acer Swift X16 have been confirmed to be equipped with Arc graphics cards, which should be the first batch of brands and products to use Intel’s discrete graphics cards. Recently, B&H Photo Video has put Samsung’s Galaxy Book2 Pro on the sale page (this page was removed), showing a price of $1349.99.

According to the information on the page, this Galaxy Book2 Pro is an ultra-thin laptop that weighs only 1.13kg. It is equipped with a 12-core Intel 12th-generation Core processor, Intel Arc discrete graphics card, a 15.6-inch 1080P resolution AMOLED display, 16GB of LPDDR5 memory, and 512GB of NVMe PCIe 4.0 SSD, and supports Wi-Fi 6E. It’s a pity that the trader did not specify the specific processor and discrete graphics model.

It is speculated that the Galaxy Book2 Pro uses the Intel Arc discrete graphics card, which may be A350M or A370M, both of which use the DG2-128EU core, which is an entry-level product in the market segment. It is worth mentioning that Intel’s Xe-HPG architecture GPU will work with Alder Lake’s Xe-LP architecture GPU through a technology called Deep Link to speed up video codecs and games.
