If you come across any particularly interesting posts with technical details, part numbers, fixes, or how-tos, let me know and I will include them on this list.

 

Many of these link back to the Notebook Review forum, which is going offline on January 31.  I will change the links to point to the NBR Precision archive once I have it ready.

 

Upcoming systems: Precision 7670 & Precision 7770

  • CPU — Intel Alder Lake HX (12th gen) – Intel 7 process, hybrid architecture, 8P + 8E cores, bump up to 55W TDP
  • GPU — NVIDIA Ampere refresh – RTX A5500 with GA103S chip; 7,424 CUDA cores; 16GB vRAM; similar performance to GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Laptop GPU
  • DDR5 (up to 128GB)
  • PCIe4 support — Alder Lake S-BGA supports 36 lanes of PCIe4 (20 at CPU and 16 at PCH), so all NVMe slots in the system should be PCIe4 enabled
  • Expected to be available to order in mid/late second quarter 2022; could be earlier, primarily depends on release timing of Alder Lake HX CPUs, which is currently unclear
  • Pre-release discussion thread
