Intel Arc GPU, a trailer to keep gamers waiting

In the last hours information I have chosen Game rewards to confirm the arrival of GPUs dedicated to the Arc line in the first quarter of 2022. The video, as you can see below, doesn’t show much, but clearly serves to spark some anticipation among gamers ahead of CES 2022 in early January where the company is expected to give us more information.

Pending official details, Moore’s Law is dead a posted a video in which he shows the photo of the two chips, say SOC1 and SOC2, which will shape the “Alchemist” line of Arc GPUs. SOC1 counts up to 512 threads, while SOC stops at a maximum of 128EUs. According to the Youtubeur, the mass production of these GPUs has not yet started and the sending to partners of almost definitive samples, known as “qualification samples”, will only take place in January.

For this reason, contrary to previous rumors, the possibility of being able to witness the arrival on the market first of desktop video cards and then of mobile GPUs on board future laptops based on Alder Lake processors is not completely excluded.

Moore’s Law is Dead also released the alleged segmentation of the Arc range, reiterating that the high-end video card should offer performance in line with NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 3070 and 3070 Ti. In the laptop realm, the GPU is expected to compete with the GeForce RTX 3070 and 3080 mobile models.

The assault on the high end is not expected to take place in 2022, but possibly in 2023 with the second generation of GPUs, codenamed “Battlemage”. Obviously, these GPUs will face the next generation of NVIDIA and AMD solutions, respectively the GeForce RTX 4000 “Ada Lovelace” and the Radeon RX 7000 “RDNA 3”.

In addition to a range of consumer solutions, Intel is also said to have several in the pipeline. professional models directed to the world of personal work places, competitive with similar proposals from NVIDIA, especially in terms of price. The Youtubeur does not exclude the arrival of a proposal with 32 GB of memory in the fourth quarter, even if for the moment there is no absolute certainty on this evolution.
