Intel's Tom Petersen and Ryan Shrout have given more performance marks for the anticipated Arc A750 in a video released late yesterday, August 10, 2022. The new performance encompasses both Intel's testing on the A750 and an NVIDIA RTX 3060 GPU for comparison. This follows Intel's announcement earlier this week of its... Read more...
Today, Intel formally unveiled the Arc Pro A-Series of graphics cards. The announcement covered the first three offerings that Intel intends to bring to market. These consist of two small form factor desktop GPUs – the A40 and A50 – as well as a mobile option – the A30M – destined for laptops. In the press release... Read more...
Top 300 winners from the Intel Arc Scavenger Hunt received another update about the Arc GPUs they won. While there is still no word on when the Alchemist GPUs will be shipped out, the specific cards the top 300 will be getting were announced, along with an option for those weary of waiting on their prize. Intel's... Read more...
Regular readers are surely well aware that Intel's released Arc as a desktop product over in China. The entry-level Arc A380 Photon card from new vendor Gunnir looks pretty snazzy. A few of those cards have made their way over to the US, first in the hands of one Mr. Ryan Shrout, and now in the mitts of Gamers... Read more...
Intel is not wanting you to forget about the upcoming Arc GPU launches, as it announces a unique opportunity coming up for some of its fans. The tech company has built a specialized tractor trailer to tour North America and showcase its Intel CPUs and Arc GPUs. The road for Arc has been a bit of a rough one so far... Read more...
Intel's published a reviewer's guide for folks taking a look at its recently-released high-end mobile GPUs, the Arc A730M and Arc A770M. We can't publish the guide, or any part of it, so we won't. Intel did give us the go-ahead to talk about some of the contents of the guide, though, and the most interesting part by... Read more...
When we saw Intel's Arc Alchemist GPUs in the figurative flesh last week, there were a few oddities in the presentation. Some of them can be explained as confusing Chinese-to-English translation issues, but differences in numbers stick out rather readily, and there were a couple of those, too. Chief among them was...

Intel Arc desktop graphics cards are real, and you can actually buy one—if you're in China, and have a need for entry-level discrete GPU. The specific model Intel is making available at this time is the Arc A380, which will probably be the fastest option in the "A300" series of Alchemist graphics cards. Since this... Read more...
As times goes on, we're getting a better look at Intel's first foray into discrete graphics in decades, as more Arc-powered laptops get released into the wild. It's been a staggered roll out with Intel starting the Arc party at the entry-level segment. However, higher end configurations have begun popping up overseas... Read more...
As recently as yesterday, we've posted rumors regarding the eventual release of Intel's Arc graphics cards. Sure, they've already appeared in laptops—at least in low-end form—but the higher-end cards, as well as any desktop parts at all, are nowhere to be seen yet. Almost as if in response to the rumors going... Read more...
Rumors of the desktop PC market's demise have been greatly exaggerated. Indeed, while laptops still outsell desktops, the majority of laptops sold don't have discrete graphics. Meanwhile, AMD's setting sales records with its Ryzen processors that overwhelmingly don't include an integrated graphics processor, putting... Read more...
You may have heard, Intel is releasing desktop graphics cards soon. Assuming you haven't just returned from living off the grid for a spell, you already know this. But when exactly are these cards finally going to manifest, and how much will they cost? If the latest rumors pan out, Intel's first Arc Alchemist graphics... Read more...
Back when Intel first announced the Xe HPG Scavenger Hunt in October of last year, we did some analysis on the value of each award to estimate the retail pricing of the cards. Now that the contest is over, winners have received e-mails confirming their prizes as well as the actual retail value of the rewards in... Read more...
As far as we know Intel's Arc Alchemist GPUs are coming in the form of either two or three chips: one with 512 Execution Units (EUs), a much smaller one with 128 EUs, and possibly a mid-size model with 256 EUs. Armed with that knowledge, an experienced enthusiast might reasonably expect Intel to launch five or six... Read more...
Mobile GPUs are cool and all, but everyone wants to see the high-end halo product. A GPU that can run games in 1080p without drawing a lot of power is probably a lot more practical than a high-end processor that can pump out a hundred 4K frames every second, but it's just not exciting. That's why we're so interested... Read more...
Now that Intel has formally entered the discrete GPU space with its first Arc Alchemist GPUs (A350M and A370M), all eyes are focused on how the introductory mobile parts perform and what they might reveal about future products. While we wait for official benchmarks to land, some leaked 3DMark scores have tipped... Read more...
Near the end of Intel's Arc Alchemist mobile discrete GPU reveal today, there was a 'But wait, there's more!' moment, equivalent to the post-credit teasers that often accompany Marvel superhero movies. Though instead of teasing an upcoming flick, Intel shared a first look at the finished design for its upcoming Arc... Read more...
Intel has announced a launch date for its mobile family of Arc A-series GPUs, and answered three of the top questions concerning its upcoming Arc GPUs. In an online event at the end of the month, the tech company will showcase Intel technologies such as Intel Deep Link, XeSS and more. Intel announced earlier this... Read more...
For a fair while now, we've been talking about Intel's upcoming Arc Alchemist GPUs as comprising two chips: a larger, 512-EU processor primarily intended for high-end desktop parts, and a smaller 128-EU chip meant for entry-level and mobile products. These processors have been known as DG2-512 and DG2-128 for some... Read more...
Once upon a time, it was thought desktop Arc Alchemist cards would be out in January, but January came and went without a peep. Folks latched onto rumors that they'd be here in March, but then Intel instead promised cards for Q2 this year in an investor meeting last month. What about now? The latest information...

For anyone who participated in Intel's Xe HPG Scavenger Hunt, the first verification email has been sent out. The contest ran from last October until the end of January 2022, and will be rewarding the top 300 participants with Intel Arc GPUs once they launch later this year. Intel gave PC enthusiasts a glimmer of... Read more...
If Intel's recent estimation is correct, it will ship a whopping 4 million discrete Arc Alchemist GPUs this year. That includes laptop, desktop, and workstation models combined, but is still an ambitious goal that underscores how important Intel views the discrete GPU market, now and in the future. And to help... Read more...
