Lenovo ThinkCentre neo 50a 24 announced with Intel Alder Lake-H processors and Intel Arc A370M GPU
Lenovo has introduced a new ThinkCentre all-in-one (AIO) desktop, building on the trio revealed in January at CES 2022. While the company announced the neo 30a and neo 50s earlier this year, it has now unveiled the neo 50a 24. For reference, the ThinkCentre neo 50a 24 only comes with Intel processors, mirroring its ThinkCentre neo siblings. However, it contains one of Intel's first discrete GPU options.
Specifically, the ThinkCentre neo 50a 24 ships with the Arc A370M, an entry-level option based on Intel's ACM-G11 chip with 4 GB of GDDR6 VRAM. Theoretically, the Arc A370M is slower than the Radeon RX 6500M while delivering roughly double the performance of an Iris Xe Graphics G7 with 96 Execution Units (EUs). Currently, Lenovo adds that the ThinkCentre neo 50a 24 will be configurable with up to 12th Gen Intel Core i7 H-series processors, 16 GB of DDR5 RAM, a 1 TB M.2 PCIe SSD and a 2 TB HDD.
Moreover, Lenovo has included dual 3 W Harman-branded speakers, dual-array microphones and a retractable 5 MP camera that supports Windows Hello or AI smart features. Separately, the machine has the following ports:
- 1x 3.5 mm jack
- 1x Ethernet RJ45
- 1x HDMI-in
- 1x HDMI 2.1 out
- 1x USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-A
- 1x USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-A
- 1x USB 2.0 Type-A
- 1x USB Type-C (45 W fast charging)
- 2x USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C
Furthermore, the AIO desktop has a 23.8-inch panel that operates at 1,920 x 1,080 pixels with a 16:9 aspect ratio. According to Lenovo, the touchscreen display peaks at 250 nits with TUV Rheinland Low Blue Light certification. As it stands, Lenovo has only confirmed that the ThinkCentre neo 50a 24 will be available in 'selected markets from August 2022'.
