MSI could soon introduce an upgraded Summit E16 Flip Evo featuring the 14C/20T Intel Core i7-12700H Alder Lake-H, Arc A370M discrete graphics, and LPDDR5-6400 RAM that will supplant the current configuration with a Core i7-1195G7 and RTX 3050 Ti. The new Summit E16 Flip Evo leaked on PugetBench, and it seems to be about 8% slower than another laptop with a Core i7-12700H and RTX 3080 Ti.

Last year, MSI introduced the Summit E16 Flip business convertible with Intel Tiger Lake and Nvidia GeForce RTX 3050 Ti Laptop GPU options. Now, it looks like MSI will be upgrading the Summit E16 Flip this year to Alder Lake-H, LPDDR5 memory, and Intel Arc discrete graphics.

The new Summit E16 Flip Evo was first spotted by @Benchleaks on PugetBench (now taken down; reported by Videocardz). The PugetBench listing indicates the Summit E16 Flip Evo to feature the 14-core 20-thread Intel Core i7-12700H processor paired with LPDDR5-6400 memory. The MSI Summit E16 Flip Evo could be one of the first laptops to feature the new LPDDR5-6400 memory standard. 

Also, instead of the RTX 3050 Ti, the new Summit E16 Flip Evo will use Intel's upcoming Arc A370M GPU. Currently, it is not possible to ascertain the benefits of choosing an Arc A370M over the RTX 3050 Ti since the benchmark in question appears to be the PugetBench Lightroom Classic test, which isn't really a GPU-focused run. In this test, the Summit E16 Flip Evo seems to have achieved an overall score of 1,034.5 points. That being said, the configuration with an A370M seems to be about 7.8% slower than another laptop with a Core i7-12700H and RTX 3080 Ti combination with DDR5-4800 memory (spotted by @harukaze5719).

Intel is yet to detail various Arc Alchemist GPU configurations but from information available so far, we expect the DG2-128EU-based Arc A370M in laptops to be rated between 35 W and 50 W TDP and trade blows with an RTX 3050 Laptop GPU. The Arc A370M is said to feature 4 GB GDDR6 memory on a 64-bit bus. This configuration is expected to make the Arc A370M about 20% slower than an Arc A380 desktop.

Note: The PugetBench entry with a Core i7-12700H and RTX 3080 Ti GPU seems to be from another laptop and may not be a variant of the upcoming Summit E16 Flip considering the BIOS naming scheme. Images from the benchmark have been added below for reference and the article has been edited accordingly. Readers may kindly note.
