A few months after the announcement, the Intel Arc A370M mobile graphics card is finally making its way outside the South Korean market.
In the US, you can already pre-order an HP Envy with this adapter and a Core i5-12500H. For a laptop asking 1400 dollars. In Australia and New Zealand, Lenovo Yoga 7i Gen7 Evo is available with almost the same parameters, but for $2,000.
Deliveries of the HP laptop should begin on July 1, but the Lenovo device will have to wait about two months. It’s not worth judging the pricing of Arc A370M mobile PCs by the two models, but there are certainly laptops in this price range with much better 3D performance. Intel’s problem now is not in this, but in the fact that it cannot normally bring video cards to the market, and after all, new generation AMD and Nvidia adapters are on the horizon.
The new Apple M2-based MacBook Pro has half the SSD speed of last year’s Apple M1-based NGA model
Following the release of Apple’s new 13-inch MacBook Pro based on the Apple M2, the $1,300 base model with a 256GB SSD was found to have significantly slower read/write speeds compared to the equivalent previous generation model.
YouTube channel Max Tech and Created Tech tested this version with the Blackmagic Disk Speed Test app and found that the SSD read and write speeds are about 1450 MB/s, which is about 50% slower when reading and about 30% slower when writing. compared to a 13-inch Apple M1-based MacBook Pro with a 256GB SSD.
Max Tech results:
- 13″ MacBook Pro (M1/256GB) Read Speed: 2900
- 13″ MacBook Pro (M2/256GB) Read speed: 1446
- 13″ MacBook Pro (M1/256 GB) Write speed: 2215
- 13″ MacBook Pro (M2/256 GB) Write speed: 1463
Upon disassembly, the new 13-inch MacBook Pro with 256 GB of memory was found to have only one NAND flash chip, while the previous model had two NAND chips of 128 GB each. This difference probably explains why the new model has a slower SSD: multiple NAND chips in parallel provide faster speeds.
Perhaps this decision is due to lower costs and / or lack of components. Apple has not yet commented on the situation.
