After a long wait, the Alchemist (DG2) graphics card of the Intel Arc brand will meet players. According to the plan announced by Intel, the first batch of Arc brand discrete graphics cards are only for mobile platforms. It will appear in laptops powered by Alder Lake mobile processors, with a version for desktop platforms not released until the second quarter.
As the release time approaches, more information leaks from various parties. According to VideoCardz, Intel will launch five Alchemist mobile graphics cards, including the A770M, A730M, A550M, A370M, and A350M. However, the first batch of Alchemist mobile graphics cards to supply is only the Arc 3 series, and the Arc 5 series and Arc 7 series will not be available until June.
At present, Intel has confirmed that there are only two chips for the Alchemist mobile graphics card, namely ACM-G10 and ACM-G11. Among them, the mid-to-high-end models of A770M, A730M, and A550M will be based on ACM-G10, also known as DG2-512EU in the past, with up to 32 Xe cores and a total of 4096 stream processors. A370M and A350M are based on ACM-G11, which is DG2-128EU, with up to 8 Xe cores and a total of 1024 stream processors.
It is understood that the goal of the Arc 3 series is to run the game at 1080P@60FPS at medium settings when Intel will compare it with Alder Lake’s Xe Iris GPU.
