The new Clevo X270 gaming notebook uses the top model of the Intel ARC Mobile graphics cards, namely the A770M, for the first time. On top of that, there is liquid metal cooling and a mini-LED display.
Clevo X270: High-end gaming notebook unveiled
Via YouTube, Taiwanese manufacturer Clevo has revealed an exciting gaming notebook. However, the company will probably not market the Clevo X270 itself; after all, the company acts as an OEM/OMD manufacturer for notebooks, tablet PCs and all-in-one computers. The manufacturer makes its notebooks available to other companies as an Original Design Manufacturer (ODM).
From a purely technical point of view, the Clevo X270 already looks exciting. The 17.3-inch notebook uses an advanced “AmLED” panel that relies on the adaptive mini-LED technology from AUO and should reach a brightness of 1,000 nits with HDR content. The colors automatically adapt to the environment.
The top model of the Intel Arc Mobile GPUs, the A770M, is used for graphics performance. Among other things, the chip offers 32 Xe cores, 4,096 shaders, 32 ray tracing units and 16 GB GDDR6 VRAM with a 256 bit memory interface.
According to Clevo, the whole thing is combined with a processor from Intel’s Alder Lake H generation. However, it is not yet revealed which CPU will be used. However, the CPU is cooled with liquid metal. Thus, the temperature is supposed to be 10 degrees cooler than usual in comparable configurations. In addition, there is a battery with a capacity of 99 Wh.
In the render video of the Clevo X270, the manufacturer also shows the ports of the rather massive gaming notebook. There are two USB-C ports with Thunderbolt 4, two USB-A 3.2 Gen 2 ports, Ethernet, HDMI, a mini DisplayPort and a separate 3.5 mm port each for headphones and microphone.
Is the Clevo X270 the XMG-X?
As a contract manufacturer, Clevo has already supplied XMG with matching gaming notebooks more frequently in the past, among other things. Devices from the Taiwanese company do their duty in the manufacturer’s Apex and Focus models, for example.
In March 2022, XMG updated its Laptop Roadmap for 2022, and in it it previewed the “X-series project” with the Intel Arc-top model for the middle of the year, which might see the Clevo X270 come into play.
