Join us on today’s Two and a Half Geeks livestream where Dave, Marco, and Chris will be joined by Tom “TAP” Petersen of Intel for a special interview. What’s so special? We are going to be fielding YOUR questions about Intel’s Arc Graphics platform for TAP to answer. You can just kick back, watch and listen here at... Read more...
Intel's journey into modern discrete GPU territory with its Arc graphics effort has been interesting, to say the least. It's also been a bit more staggered than most people hoped. Though to be fair, it's not easy designing a brand-new architecture from the ground up and then optimizing it for public consumption... Read more...
Intel has published another episode of the Tom and Ryan Show. This time, the hot topic is Ray Tracing on Intel’s slowly emerging line of Arc Alchemist discrete GPUs. While it is interesting to hear about real-time ray tracing on Intel hardware, and the underlying technology, we are most interested in Intel’s... Read more...
Intel’s first Arc Alchemist graphics card sold through a major US retailer looks set to drop on Monday. Major online PC and electronics dealer Newegg has listed the ASRock Intel Arc A380 Challenger ITX 6GB OC today. This compact single fan ‘ITX’ card is listed by Newegg at $139.99, which falls in line with... Read more...
Intel would obviously love it if your next PC paired one of its Core processors with an Arc-powered graphics card, like the Arc A750 or A770 (neither of which is actually available yet, but should be soon). That doesn't mean it's going to shun support for AMD's platforms with its GPUs, though. That would be ludicrous... Read more...
One of the key characteristics we've seen so far in Arc graphics card benchmarks is a predominant softness in DirectX 11 titles versus those using the newer DirectX 12 and Vulkan APIs. The latter two APIs are much lower-level interfaces, giving game programmers greater control over the hardware. As a result, there's a... Read more...
Oh no, Intel's discrete desktop graphics cards might not be great at mining, what in the world will we ever do!? Perhaps rejoice if you're a gamer, content creator, or anyone who has no interest whatsoever in cryptocurrency mining. At least for the time being, it appears as though Intel's GPU drivers for its Arc... Read more...
Intel has formally introduced its upcoming Arc A750 desktop graphics card, and with the introduction comes an initial set of internally run benchmarks comparing performance to NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 3060 in a handful of games. As you might imagine, the selected benchmarks shine a positive light on the A750 as a capable... Read more...
Intel is taking a slow and staggered roll out for its Arc series of discrete GPUs, having already launched a few SKUs in mobile and the A380 on the desktop (in China). More first-generation Arc releases are coming. Among them will be Intel's first workstation graphics cards based on Arc, two of which have seemingly... 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...
For the past several years, Intel has been working fervently to get back into discrete graphics, a market segment the company has not attempted to enter since its Larrabee product over a decade ago. These things take time, no matter how impatient we as consumers can be. That said, Intel is finally well on its way with... Read more...
It's been a long road for Intel's Arctic Sound. We first heard the codename whispered back in 2018. At one time, it was rumored to be the codename for datacenter GPUs based on "Xe-HP". As it turns out, that didn't come to fruition, and the card expected to materialize in 2020 never appeared. Arctic Sound is real... 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...
Hardware nerds of a certain vintage will recall the name Glaze3D with a mix of emotions. Some folks will feel wistful at what could have been, while others will smirk in vicious irony at the vaporware nature of the product. After all, the truth is that Glaze3D never came out, so we don't really know what could have... Read more...
It took a minute, but the first laptops equipped with Intel's Arc Alchemist GPUs have shown up for roll call at retail in the US. We had suspected Samsung would beat others to the punch, as it was the first out the door with an Arc-powered laptop (Galaxy Book2 Pro) in South Korea, but it looks like ASUS and HP will...

Intel recently teased what its first Arc Alchemist graphics card will look like, and to our eyes, it's a beautiful design. We can also expect Intel's hardware partners to do their own thing with custom coolers and probably factory overclocks, but as far as the reference "Limited Edition" shroud goes, it looks pretty...

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...
For the past several years, we’ve been hearing about Intel’s extensive plan to enter the discrete GPU space. It’s the main reason why Raja Koduri joined the chipmaker in late 2017, who came on board to spearhead not just a one-off product launch, but a new era of graphics at Intel with a robust roadmap extending years...

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...
Samsung is expanding its laptop line with an upgraded and expanded family of Galaxy Book 2 models, including the Galaxy Book 2 Pro, Galaxy Book 2 Pro 360, and Galaxy Book 2 360. There are five main SKUs spread across the three refreshed product lines, each built to Intel's latest Evo certification with 12th Gen Core... 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...
