Samsung laptop with Intel Arc inside

As you can see in the above image, the Galaxy Book2 Pro which was announced earlier today, was already on sale at B&Hphotovideo retail store for a short while before being removed. The laptop is powered by Intel's 12th Gen CPUs and Arc discrete graphics. Though we don't exactly know which Arc model it is, a good guess would be the Arc A370M as Intel itself confirmed the SKU will be first Intel Arc discrete graphics featured in laptops.

According to Intel's own data, the entry-level A370M is around the performance of the MX450/GTX 1050 Ti or an AMD RX 560. And in terms of CPU horsepower, the laptop has a Core i7-1260P. You get all this at an MSRP of $1,349.99.

The Acer Swift X 2022 model is also another option with Intel Arc GPU inside with similar hardware specs and it costs a hundred dollars less at $1,249 (via Matthew Moniz on YouTube).
