Although Intel has delayed the release time, it will not wait too long, and the Alchemist (DG2) graphics card of the Intel Arc brand will meet players. According to Intel’s plan, the first batch of ARC brand discrete graphics cards are only for mobile platforms and will appear in laptops equipped with Alder Lake mobile processors, and then the version for desktop platforms will be released.
Recently, Twitter user @9550pro shared a PPT about Intel’s Alchemist mobile graphics development plan. According to the content of the chart, it can be seen that Intel’s future discrete graphics product line on mobile platforms will be divided into five SKUs, and there will be four memory configurations at the same time. Like the desktop platform, the highest-end Alchemist graphics card is the model equipped with DG2-512EU, with 4096 stream processors, equipped with 8 video memory chips, a total of 16GB of GDDR6 video memory, a bit width of 256 bits, a speed of 16 Gbps, providing 512 GB/s of bandwidth.
Next is the model equipped with DG2-384EU, with 3072 stream processors, 6 video memory chips, a total of 12GB of GDDR6 video memory, a bit width of 192 bits, a rate of 16 Gbps, and a bandwidth of 384 GB/s. There is also a model equipped with DG2-256EU, with 2048 stream processors, equipped with 4 video memory chips, a total of 8GB of GDDR6 video memory, a bit width of 128 bits, a rate of 16 Gbps, and a bandwidth of 256 GB/s. These two are relatively mainstream/mid-range models and should be seen on many gaming laptops equipped with Intel’s independent graphics.
Finally, there are two entry-level products, both equipped with two video memory chips, with a bit width of 64 bits, a rate of 14 Gbps, and a bandwidth of 112 GB/s. The difference between the two is that one is a model equipped with DG2-128EU, which has 1024 stream processors, and the other is a model equipped with DG2-96EU, which has 768 stream processors.
