Intel confirms that ARC A770 will be launched on October 12 and priced at $329

Although Intel failed to deliver on its promise to release the remaining Alchemist (DG2) desktop graphics cards, however, at the “Intel Innovation” summit, it was confirmed that the most high-end ARC A770 graphics card will be launched on October 12, 2022, the same day as the release date of the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090.

Intel also provides a suggested retail price of the ARC A770 graphics card, which is $329 which is relatively inexpensive. It uses a complete ACM-G10 chip with 32 Xe cores of Xe-HPG architecture, the core frequency is 2100MHz, the memory capacity is 8GB or 16GB GDDR6, the memory bit width is 256 bits, and the memory speed is 17.5Gbps, the memory bandwidth is 560GB/s, and the power consumption is 225W. Since there are two capacities of video memory, the $329 may refer to the 8GB version.

Unfortunately, there is still no news of ARC A750 and ARC A580 graphics cards, and the price is not clear. Intel and its retail partners will sell the Arc A770 Limited Edition graphics card, with further news on the Arc A750 Limited Edition card rumored to be coming in a few days. While these cards vary in hardware specs, they are all feature-packed and all support the latest display specs such as HDR, Variable Refresh Rate (VRR), XeSS, Ray Tracing, Customizable Actions using Arc Control, AV1 codec, and other dedicated hardware video codecs, etc.

Intel also quietly released XeSS technology. Currently, it is shown on the Steam platform that Shadow of the Tomb Raider already supports XeSS, which is the first game to support XeSS.
