Intel Arc’s first-generation Alchemist graphics card (DG2) will be unveiled next year, which is likely to change the current situation of NVIDIA and AMD competing for supremacy, bringing long-lost fresh air to the graphics card market. Some time ago, it has been reported that Intel’s first graphics card series will be named “Arc aXXX“, and clear name guidelines have been provided to retailers, partners, and system integrators.
According to a VideoCardz
report, the YouTuber “Moore’s Law is Dead” recently showed the public version of the Alchemist graphics card. In fact, half a year ago, the engineering prototype of the highest specification DG2-512EU graphics card of the new series of graphics cards has been circulated on the Internet. The appearance design of this rendering is very close to the previous project model, but the radiator is replaced with silver, it is also equipped with dual fans, dual-slot thickness, and is equipped with 8Pin+6Pin external power supply interface.
DG2-512EU graphics card is rumored to be benchmarked against Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 in performance. It has 4096 stream processors, 16GB of GDDR6 video memory, 256-bit bit width, core frequency between 2.2 GHz and 2.5 GHz, and TDP of 225W (up to 300W). The non-public version launched by Intel’s partners will have a stronger performance. It is rumored that the first discrete graphics cards are only for mobile platforms and will be launched with the Alder Lake mobile version in the first quarter of 2022, and the desktop version will only be launched in the second quarter of 2022.
