MSI has opted for the Core Ultra 7 155H SKU for the CLAW, featuring a high-spec processor boasting 16 cores and 22 threads—twice the offering of the Ryzen Z1 Extreme. The system incorporates 6 P-Cores, 8 E-Cores, and 2 LP-Cores, with built-in graphics relying on the Arc Alchemist architecture featuring 8 Xe-Cores capable of boosting up to 2.25 GHz. Officially designated as a 28W processor with a Max Turbo Power of 115W, early tests indicate that the Arc Xe-LPG graphics demonstrate a competitive edge over the AMD integrated RDNA3, as seen with the Ryzen 7040 and 8040 series.

Leaked specs also reveal that the system will support up to 32 GB of memory, which is twice of the memory available in the Legion Go and ROG Ally. It’s possible that MSI may offer multiple configurations of the device, as not everyone would require such a substantial amount of memory. The official reveal of MSI’s new handheld is scheduled to happen at the upcoming CES 2024. These leaked specs give us an early looking at what can be expected from the device in terms of performance.
