Intel showcases their ARC Alchemist Desktop GPU at Intel Extreme Masters

At Intel Extreme Masters in Dallas Texas, Intel has showcased a Limited Edition ARC Alchemist desktop GPU design, giving PC gamers their first proper look at at Intel's newest discrete gaming graphics technology. 

While this GPU was unnamed, it is possible that this graphics card is Intel's rumoured A770 model, which should feature a full Intel ACM-G10 GPU core, 16GB of GDDR6 memory, and 32 Xe cores. The GPU below has an 8-pin and a 6-pin power connector, allowing the GPU to draw up to 300 watts of power, with 150W coming from the PCIe 8-pin connector, 75W coming from the 6-pin connector, and a maximum of 75W coming from your PC's PCIe slot. In reality, this graphics cards' TDP will be lower than 300W.

At this time, Intel has not revealed when their ARC Alchemist series graphics cards will be available to desktop users, or how well these graphics cards will perform when compared to current-generation Nvidia RTX 30 series and AMD RX 6000 series products. Intel is launching their ARC Alchemist series products into the notebook market first, and there are fears that Intel will be launching their desktop models too close to the reveal or launch of next-generation AMD and Nvidia products to have a dramatic impact on the GPU market.

Intel's flagship ARC Alchemist series GPUs are expected to compete with AMD's RX 6700 series and Nvidia's RTX 3070 series graphics cards. This leaves Intel without a competitor to higher-end graphics cards like AMD's Radeon RX 6950 XT or Nvidia's RTX 3090 Ti.

If these are cheap though... Imagine a 6700XT/3070 for $450.Quote

6700XT performance for $399 along with stable drivers and they'll be onto a winner, If it's any higher in price though I doubt many would be willing to take the plunge.Quote

Yeah, I agree. If they brought these out a year ago, that would have been incredible even at $450. But now with new cards on the horizon, prices dropping on AMD/Nvidia cards, and the worry of drivers and support from game developers, I worry these are going to be mobile-only.Quote

The drivers are less of an issue than the price they will want, Intel have a huge software teams so drivers i'd expect on point, but it's their first real attempt i think the delays are more about them knowing it needs to be right or they are done.

I do however just feel they are too late now as like everyone knows new cards are only months away why would you buy into a new brand and knowing it'll be underpowered quickly, I'd not buy any card atm let alone a first attempt.

But maybe datacenter and laptop is more their focus and so they at least get something out the door.

PC gamer posted some benchmark results, very unimpressed, no one in their right mind will buy these.Quote
