The GPU side on the Lenovo Pro 27-Inch All-In-One PC includes the Intel Arc A370M, making it one of the first AIOs to feature Arc graphics. The Intel Arc A370M is positioned within the entry-level discrete GPU segment and based on the ACM-G11 SKU, the smallest of the two Arc Alchemist SKUs. It utilizes the full ACM-G11 GPU config with 8 Xe Cores (1024 ALUs), 8 ray tracing units, 1550 MHz graphics clock, 4 GB of 64-bit GDDR6 memory, and a TDP range of 35-50W. This chip would be tackling the GeForce RTX 3050 series & Radeon RX 6500 series.
Lenovo has listed some performance figures on its Chinese landing page which show up to 152 FPS in League of Legends at 1440p, up to 110 FPS in CSGO at 1440p & up to 142 FPS in World of Tanks at 1080p. The more interesting figures are the content creation ones which show a 30% boost in Adobe Pr (8K H.265), 70% improvement in Davinci Resolve (4K H.264 / 4K H.265), and a 900% uplift in FFMPEG (8K H265) versus the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050. The Intel Arc GPUs are definitely going to offer a massive boost in content creation apps plus their AV1 capabilities are already shown to outclass NVIDIA and AMD current-gen hardware.
To cool the CPU and GPU, the Lenovo Pro 27″ All-In-One PC utilizes a dual fan cooling design as a part of its 3X Power+Mesh cooling system. It offers 34CFM airflow and outputs 22dBA noise at full load. The heatsink comprises several heatsinks and heat pipes that make contact with the CPU & GPU. Underneath the chassis are two JBL 5W speakers which are compliant with Smart AMP and Dolby Audio. The PC is currently listed for an entry price of 6299 RMB or $930 US for the base AIO model.
