In the second quarter 2022 earnings conference call, Intel CEO Pat Gelsinger said that the ARC A5 and A7 series desktop graphics cards will be launched in the third quarter, but did not mention a specific date. At the same time, the leaked slide also shows that the time to market of these graphics cards is still to be determined.
Intel’s internal slide confirms the delay of ARC desktop graphics card
Intel released the Alchemist (DG2) discrete graphics card under the Intel Arc brand as early as the end of March, but it wasn’t until last month that Intel officially launched its first product for the desktop platform, the entry-level A380, due to software issues and the coronavirus pandemic affecting the supply chain. Although the A770 and A750 with higher positioning have appeared frequently recently, it is still unknown when they will meet with consumers.
Recently, Intel’s internal slide has appeared on the Internet, which is said to be what Intel’s graphics technology department showed to other departments about a month ago. The original plan was to launch the remaining four ARC desktop graphics cards on or after July 20. At the same time, OEM manufacturers will simultaneously sell them on the whole machine, and the retail market will have to wait until August.
Intel has five ARC A-series graphics cards on the desktop platform, namely A770, A750, A580, A380, and A310. It is rumored that there will be five partners for the first batch of products as ASRock, Asus, MSI, and Gigabyte.
