LG Gram 17 2022 versus 2021 models

Would like some info on the differences between the LG Gram 17 2022 and the 2021. On Amazon are the only 2022 ones labeled '2022' or are some of the others this year as well (and if so, whats the easiest way to tell)? Is there much of a difference between the 2 years models other than the CPU, and is that alone a big enough difference to justify getting this year over last? Does the WQXGA screen justify a higher price (meaning, is it that much better?)

WQXGA means higher 2500X1600 resolution and 16:10 aspect ratio. Which is better for movies and video but not better for viewing spreadsheets or accounting balance sheets all day. Also higher prices can be more memory, larger SSD or better graphics card. You basically get what you pay for with laptops. Meaning a higher price model will have better components than a lower priced one.
 
I guess it's all moot if the 2022's don't come out. I emailed LG and they replied they don't have any information ...on when they are coming out. Unreal. I would kind of like some of the options for this years version ...maybe.

Well Costco has the LG Gram 17 with the 12th generation processor and 32 GB ram for 200.00 off. The price today is 1799 to 1599.
 
It has the DDR5 RAM but not the Nvidia part. Unlike last year, this model also has a matte screen, FHD webcam, 12th gen CPU, and 12th gen EVO (basically battery life enhancements).
