Intel’s flagship laptop graphics card, the A770M, is in a high-end gaming laptop announced by Clevo, paired with an Intel Alder Lake mobile CPU.
Clevo makes laptops that other manufacturers customize and then sell under their own brands (e.g. Eurocom and XMG use Clevo designs), and the company just unveiled the Clevo X270 at Youtube (opens in new tab) (as discovered by well-known hardware leaker HXL on Twitter).

The X270 comes loaded with an Arc Alchemist A770M, the flagship of Intel’s new laptop GPUs, along with an Alder Lake H-series processor.
The brief teaser video also highlights that a robust cooling system is in place to ensure thermals remain favorable, despite the hardware packaged here – in theory, anyway – which includes a liquid metal cover for the CPU to ensure that the temperatures are 10 degrees cooler than otherwise. would be (or this is the statement). A series of copper heat pipes – seven of them – are also present to facilitate better internal cooling (there are a couple of fans too).
Not much else is revealed about the specs, other than the gaming laptop with a 17.3-inch Mini-LED screen and that the range of ports provided includes a pair of Thunderbolt 4 connectors.
Review: A fast laptop, no doubt that I hope to arrive soon
This notebook should be quite fast when it comes to frame rates, considering the combination of an Alder Lake H series chip and Arc Alchemist A770M. That said, we still don’t know which 12th Gen Intel mobile CPU will be employed, but we expect it to be one of the Core i7 or likely Core i9 models, as it’s twinned with Intel’s flagship GPU.
The other thing we still don’t know is exactly how the A770M will perform, but we hope it doesn’t disappoint – we’ve previously seen comparisons on the RTX 3060 or 3060 Ti stadium (take these leaks very cautiously, of course).
Whatever the case, the power on tap should be impressive enough, as Clevo has chosen to run with a Mini-LED panel here, marking this laptop as a more premium gaming model (and as such, it would hardly be slow. ).
Unfortunately, we don’t know when this gaming laptop is scheduled to come out as the teaser clip doesn’t give us any idea. But its very presence certainly indicates that the X270, and more precisely, gaming notebook models built with the design, should not be also far away…
