Acer Swift X Laptop with Intel Arc A370M Graphics Available to Preorder

We recently reported on the unnamed discrete Intel Arc Alchemist GPU found in the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Book2 Pro. That listing has now been removed but Finnish retailer Proshop has posted two models of the upcoming Acer Swift X laptop featuring Intel Arc A370M graphics cards. The listings include a Core i5-1240P and Core i7-1260P model each featuring 16 GB of LPDDR5 memory and an Intel Arc A370M GPU available to pre-order for 1299 EUR and 1549 EUR respectively.

The Intel Arc A370M is based on the DG2-128EU GPU and is expected to feature 4 GB of VRAM on a 64-bit memory bus. The Intel Arc Alchemist discrete mobile graphics cards will be officially unveiled by Intel on March 30th with claims of a 2x performance improvement from the integrated 96EU Iris-XE GPU found in the Core i7-12700H. The Acer Swift X laptops are listed by Proshop as not being available until May 25th almost 2 months after the official announcement.

In the TPU Intel DG2-128 page that you linked, it mentions 146 mm² & 8 billion transistors without the disclaimer that the data are preliminary and may change in the future (like in other products)
Are these data correct?
I'm asking because for example it mentions also the following which doesn't seem correct:
"Feature Level 12_1."
"Due to the lack of unified shaders you will not be able to run recent games at all (which require unified shader/DX10+ support)"

I have removed the link as the listed data doesn't appear to be correct, I will add the link back once the page has been updated.

You're not wrong but it's a laptop and not even a gaming one at that after all

I wouldn't take pricing on an early publication too seriously, it might not be correct. Plus i don't know how prices usually are on finland (but have you taken that into consideration?)
