Intel finally released
the Alchemist (DG2) discrete graphics card of the Intel Arc brand with the Xe-HPG architecture today. The first batch of products is for mobile platforms. Only the A350M
and A370M will be launched for the first time, and the remaining three will not be listed until the early summer of this year.
After introducing the mobile platform products, Intel released a preview of the desktop platform Arc brand discrete graphics card, so that everyone can see for the first time what Intel’s first desktop discrete graphics card looks like since the late 1990s. As you can see in the video, this Alchemist desktop graphics card uses a dual-fan radiator, the color scheme is gray and silver, and the thickness of the double slot. It is equipped with three DisplayPort ports and one HDMI port, with a LED light on the top showing the “intel ARC” logo. It is very similar to the previously leaked engineering samples or renderings, but there are slight differences in shape, structure, and color matching.
Although Intel did not specify the specific model of this graphics card, according to the internal structure shown, including eight memory chip positions and four heat pipe cooling systems. It can be speculated that this should be a high-end model, a full-spec product equipped with the ACM-G10 chip, with 32 Xe cores and 16GB of GDDR6 memory. It’s a bit of a pity that you can’t see any external power connections in the rendering image. In addition, there are words “Limited Edition” on the back of the graphics card and at the end of the video, although Intel did not specify the specific meaning.
According to the plan announced by Intel, the ARC graphic card version for the desktop platform will not be released until the second quarter, and everyone will have to wait for a while.
