In late 2021, news broke that Intel could launch the upcoming Intel ARC lineup of GPUs in early 2021. However, recent leaks point out at a March launch as the company postponed Jan’s unveiling for an unknown reason. Now, a fresh leak suggests that we might see new Intel ARC Alchemist GPU powered laptops tomorrow. Acer Swift X 2021 could be the world’s first laptop with Intel ARC GPU; CES 2021 launch
The CES 2021 will kickstart this week and we expect to see a bunch of hardware like laptops, phones, and gadgets getting showcased at the event. As per leaks, we might see Acer launching its Acer Swift X 2021
Reportedly, the images of the Swift X 2021 were surfaced on the Internet. Just like the predecessor, Swift X 2021, which was the world’s first laptop with Iris Xe graphics, the Swift X 2021 is also said to be the first laptop with ARC Alchemist GPU.
As per images, the Acer Swift X 2021 looks familiar to the predecessor but has a few changes. The laptop has two USB Type-C ports instead of a single port seen in the Swift X 2021. In the images, the fingerprint scanner seems to be missing, but the power button could double up as a scanner. It also has a USB and an HDMI port.
Apart from the ports, the laptop has a thin-bezel design, however, its specs are still under wraps. It has a chicklet style keyboard without a dedicated number pad.
Other than this, Acer is also expected to showcase other laptops at the event like the Acer Predator Helios 300, Predator Triton 500 SE, and Nitro 5 2021. All the laptops will have new hardware, some of the devices will be powered by the 12th generation Alder Lake H-35 CPUs.
