At the beginning of the week, we wrote about the budget Intel ARC graphics card (Alchemist SoC 2), which in the desktop version offers 6 GB of GDDR6 memory on a 96-bit memory bus. We were then informed that the power consumption of the card should not exceed 65W. Single chip, the area of the chip is approximately 397 mm², and therefore it is slightly larger than the NVIDIA GA104 (Ampere) and significantly larger than the AMD NAVI 22. Although Intel has not officially presented the appearance of its ARC graphics card, new renderings have appeared on the network based on All existing information about the GPU. Although it’s still an unofficial project, there’s a good chance this is what a top card based on the Xe-HPG architecture will look like.
More demos of the Intel ARC graphics card (Alchemist SoC 1) have appeared on the net, showing what a reference project from Intel could look like.
New shows for the best Intel ARC graphics card have appeared on Moore’s Law is Dead channel. As a reminder, you’ll have 32 Xe-CORE cores, 4,096 stream processors, 32 hardware ray tracing acceleration units and 16GB of GDDR6 memory on a 256-bit bus. TGP cards should reach 225-235 W. The new performances, published by MLID, somehow confirm the previous information. Two-hole design, mostly in silver colours. Black fans and black backplate to break the silver color. In addition, the fans have a subtle blue illumination.
Intel ARC Alchemist – New information about graphics cards, their performance and individual model specifications
Randy Four digital connectors are also shown on the herring. Three HDMI 2.1 ports and one DisplayPort. However, in this case, it is talked about using the DisplayPort 2.0 standard. Cards based on the Intel Xe-HPG architecture, according to previous reports, will support the latest version of DisplayPort. On the top of the card there is also an illuminated Intel logo and power sockets. In the case of the top-end Intel ARC card, we are talking about a single 8-pin, 6-pin power plug. Interestingly, MLID reports that the premiere of Intel ARC desktop cards will take place in the second quarter of 2022. In the first quarter, the manufacturer will prepare the first release of laptops, along with Alder Lake processors.
