Lenovo Yoga Slim 7i Pro: 16-inch model revealed with an Intel Arc A370M, a 2.5K and 120 Hz display, plus a number pad
Lenovo has unveiled the Yoga Slim 7i Pro 16IAH7, a 16-inch laptop that relies on Intel CPUs and GPUs. Specifically, Lenovo will offer the Yoga Slim 7i Pro 16IAH7 with the Core i5-12500H and the Core i7-12700H, along with the Arc A370M GPU. Also, the machine will be configurable with 16 GB of dual-channel LPDRR5 RAM and 512 GB or 1 TB of PCIe Gen3 storage.
While the Arc A370M is not as powerful as the Arc A550M, Arc A730M or the Arc A770M, it still has a few things going for it. For example, Intel has included 8 Xe cores (128 ALUs), 8 ray tracing units and 4 GB of GDDR6 VRAM operating on a 64-bit memory bus. Theoretically, the Arc A370M is slower than the Radeon RX 6500M, at least according to AMD's gaming benchmarks.
Elsewhere, the Yoga Slim 7i Pro 16IAH7 has a 75 Wh battery, dual 2 W speakers, an HD webcam, an IR camera and dual microphones. Moreover, Lenovo will only offer the machine with a single 16-inch display option, which resolves at 2.5K (2,560 x 1,600) with 500 nits of peak brightness, 100% sRGB colour space coverage and a 120 Hz refresh rate. Furthermore, Lenovo equips the Yoga Slim 7i Pro 16IAH7 with the following ports:
- 2x USB 3.2 Gen1 Type-A
- 1x SD card reader
- 1x HDMI 2.0
- 1x Thunderbolt 4 (USB 4.0)
- 1x Square DC-in
- 1x 3.5 mm audio jack
The Yoga Slim 7i Pro 16IAH7 will be available from July in the Eurozone, where it will start at €1,499. For reference, Core i5-12500H configurations will only be available during the machine's second wave. However, Lenovo has not disclosed when this second wave will begin.
