Intel releases Arc Pro series workstation graphics cards
Intel announced the launch of the Arc Pro series of workstation graphics cards. The first products are the Intel Arc Pro A30M for mobile devices, and the Intel Arc Pro A40 and Intel Arc Pro A50 for small form factor desktops. These GPUs have built-in hardware ray tracing, machine learning and AV1 hardware encoding acceleration.
Intel Arc Pro A30M can be configured with a TDP of 35W to 50W, provides 3.5 TFLOPs of FP32 computing power, has 8 Xe cores, and is equipped with 4GB of GDDR6 memory. The display output depends on the design of the OEM. Intel Arc Pro A50 adopts a dual-slot half-height specification, provides 4.8 TFLOPs of FP32 computing power, has 8 Xe cores, is equipped with 6GB of GDDR6 video memory, has a TDP of 75W, and is equipped with four mini-DP ports, which can support two 8K@60Hz, one 5K@240Hz, two 5K@120Hz or four 4K@60Hz monitors. Intel Arc Pro A40 adopts a single-slot half-height specification, provides 3.5 TFLOPs of FP32 computing power, has 8 Xe cores, is equipped with 6GB of GDDR6 video memory, and has a TDP of 50W. The display output is consistent with the Arc Pro A50.
Intel Arc Pro Series workstation graphics are targeted at professional software applications that require the use of certified, including architecture, engineering and construction, and design and manufacturing industries. At the same time, Intel will also optimize for media and entertainment applications. Users can accelerate these GPUs using all of the software developed by Intel’s oneAPI toolkit. At the same time, Intel will cooperate with other enterprises in the industry to provide professional graphics application software for Arc Pro series workstation graphics cards.
Intel says the Arc Pro series of workstation graphics cards will be available later this year. In addition, at SIGGRAPH 2022, which will be held from August 8th to 11th, Intel will also build a platform on-site to introduce and demonstrate to developers and content creators.
