The new Galaxy Book 2 Pro will be made available in two different sizes: 13.3-inch and 15.6-inch, with the larger model featuring an Intel Arc Alchemist discrete GPU. Samsung's new Galaxy Book 2 Pro laptops are part of Intel's latest EVO platform, packing a 12th Gen Core "Alder Lake" CPU with built-in Iris Xe graphics.

But the larger 15.6-inch model has higher-end graphics thanks to the Intel Arc Alchemist discrete GPU, which adds another 600g to the overall weight -- 1.11kg to 1.17kg -- which would be for the beefier thermal solution for the discrete GPU. As for the Samsung Galaxy Book 2 it offers up to 21 hours of battery life, packs 5G and Wi-Fi 6E connectivity, runs Windows 11, and it's all delivered over a 65W USB Type-C power connector.

CyberPowerPC's new Tracer gaming laptops have EXTERNAL liquid cooling

Anthony Garreffa | Mon, Jan 10 2022 10:28 PM CST

CyberPowerPC unveiled its new Trace VI Edge Pro Liquid Cool series laptop, powered with Intel and NVIDIA's latest chips but get this: active liquid cooling, built into the laptop but externally... check it out:

The new CyberPowerPC Tracer VI Edge Pro Liquid Cool gaming laptop packs a 15-inch 1440p 240Hz LED display, Intel's latest Core i9-12900HK processor, NVIDIA's latest GeForce RTX 30 series Laptop GPU, up to 64GB of DDR5 RAM, up to 2TB of NVMe M.2 SSD storage, 1 x HDMI 2.1, 3 x USB 3.1 Gen1 Type-A, and 1 x USB 3.1 Gen2 Type-C ports.

The company hasn't detailed which GPU will go into the liquid-cooled gaming laptop, but with an external liquid cooler, I would expect to only see NVIDIA's new flagship GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Laptop GPU with 16GB of GDDR6 memory. CyberPowerPC will have mean external reservoir that connects to 2 x quick-release connectors on the back of the laptop. The CPU and GPU temperature drops are massive... meaning you'll continue to hit max CPU and GPU clocks thanks to the chips running far cooler being cooled by water.

ASUS says that the "centerpiece of this flagship machine" is the mind-blowing Nebula HDR display, 100% coverage of the DCI-P3 color space, Pantone Validation, high refresh rate, Adaptive-Sync and under 3ms response time. Better yet, we have a huge 1100-nit peak brightness, with 512 Mini-LED dimming zones that work with AUO's AMLED technology to "reduce haloing, thanks in part to a polling rate of 5400Hz. Vibrant, colorful images pop off the screen with more impact than any laptop gaming display before it".

The Nebula HDR panel offers two resolutions and refresh rates: 4K 120Hz and 1080p 240Hz, for the best of both worlds. The smaller second display is the 14.1-inch ROG ScreenPad Plus, which offers up to 3840x110 resolution and when powered with ScreenXpert, you've got tweaking through control software that lets you tweak your apps and windows across both displays of the Zephyrus Duo 15 laptop.
