Secret Intel Arc GPU discovered in unreleased Dell laptop

A mysterious Intel graphics card has just been confirmed to appear in new Dell Precision laptop workstations.

The Intel Arc A30M Pro is a discrete graphics card, and judging by the new leak, it should be released very soon, but Intel itself has never mentioned this before.

Intel hasn’t technically revealed any Arc Alchemist GPUs for workstations yet, but that’s exactly the graphics card that appears in the new Dell Precision 5470 mobile workstation. Found by @9550pro on Twitter, the information comes straight from an official looking Dell flyer, implying it could very well be legit.

The workstations are customizable. The 12th-generation Intel CPUs that power Dell’s new laptops come with integrated Intel Iris Xe graphics, but the notebooks also offer the option of using a discrete graphics card. In that regard, users can choose between an Nvidia RTX A1000 laptop GPU with 4 GB GDDR6 memory, or they can wait a little longer for an 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 that users can choose from. Starting with the midrange Core i5-12500H with 12 cores, 16 threads and an 18MB cache, the Dell Precision 5470 also offers access to some of the best CPUs found in workstations. The top variant comes with an Intel Core i9-12900H processor with 14 cores and 20 threads with a boost clock up to 5.00GHz. The huge range of high-end CPUs implies that we are 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 can choose between three versions of Windows 11 and Linux.

In addition to the workstation leak, another piece of information has emerged: A well-known Twitter leaker, @momomo_us, shared a diagram of Intel’s Arc design for the Gen 12.7 architecture. This was first shared by Wccftech.

After a long wait, Intel Arc Alchemist is finally almost here, beginning Intel’s career in the discrete graphics sector. Intel is starting with laptop GPUs, including the A370M and A350M, which will provide a performance boost over existing Iris Xe solutions. We’re sure these laptop graphics cards will launch on March 30, but there’s no confirmation on the release date of the workstation-based A30M Pro. Now that Dell is already starting to break the news, it can’t be far, though.
