HP Spectre x360 16: US pricing announced for upcoming Intel Core i7-1260P and Intel Arc A370M model
Best Buy has listed the HP Spectre x360 16 with Intel Arc Graphics and 12th Generation Core processors. Referred to as 'coming soon', the 16-inch machine has a 2-in-1 design with a 4K OLED panel that resolves at 3,840 x 2,400 pixels. Additionally, the HP Spectre x360 16 has 16 GB of RAM and 1 TB of storage, although we imagine that HP will offer other memory configurations.
The Spectre 16 is also one of the first Intel Arc A370M-powered machines that has hit the market. Described as 'high-end' by Best Buy, the Arc A370M offers 4 GB of GDDR6 VRAM and contains an ACM-G11 GPU that has 8 Xe-cores, 8 Ray Tracing Units and a 64-bit memory bus width. Additionally, the Arc A370M operates at between 35 W and 50 W; Best Buy has not disclosed the graphics card's TDP.
Moreover, the HP Spectre x360 16 has an Intel Core i7-1260P processor, an upper mid-range 28 W Alder Lake processor with 4 performance cores and 8 efficient cores. Incidentally, the Core i7-1260P has an Iris Xe Graphics G7 (96 EUs) integrated GPU itself that will handle many tasks. For reference, HP also offers the Spectre x360 16 with 11th Generation Core processors and an RTX 3050 GPU, so it will be interesting to see how the all-Intel variants compares. Best Buy has priced the Arc A370M-powered variant (16-f1023dx) at US$1,999.99, which we assume is the machine's MSRP.
