The Alchemist range will include A310, A380, A580, A750, A770, Pro A40, Pro A50
Intel’s Arc Alchemist desktop gaming graphics cards have been confirmed in the latest GPU driver release. Driver 220.127.116.112 brings new gaming support and optimizations for Arc A-series mobility GPUs such as ss Arc A370M and Arc A350M, but it also reveals desktop cards in their final naming scheme.
Intel Arc A-Series Desktop Gaming graphics cards include A310, A380, A580, A770 and two Pro Series Alchemist variants
The lineup is pretty much a confirmation of what we’ve previously reported, but comes straight from Intel this time. There are a few variants missing in drivers such as the Arc A350, but it may be released later, hence the addition of preliminary support to the cards listed.
The Arc Alchemist line will include the flagship Arc A770 which will feature the full Arc ACM-G10 GPU with 32 Xe-Cores and a 256-bit bus interface. The previous rumor stated that the Arc A770 would come with lower memory and it looks like this is basically an entirely different SKU as it will feature both 16GB and 8GB flavors. The base specs will remain the same.
Moving on, we have the mid-range Arc A750 and Arc A580. These cards are likely to compete with the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 line and are expected to feature 24 Xe-Cores (3072 ALUs) and 16 Xe-Cores (2048 ALUs) respectively. The Arc A750 is expected to come with 8GB of memory (256-bit) but it could also come with 12GB of memory (192-bit bus) if it plans to take on the 3060 series. The Arc A580 is expected to have 8 GB of memory.
Regarding the entry-level range, Intel should offer three offers, the Arc A380, A350 and A310. The models are likely to feature 8, 6, and 4 Xe cores, with the top variant featuring 6GB of GDDR6 (96-bit) memory and the other two models featuring 4GB of GDDR6 (64-bit) memory. The entry-level lineup will compete with the NVIDIA 3050 and AMD Navi 24 offerings. Along with gaming variants, Intel will also offer two Pro variants, the Arc A50 and Arc A40. The former could use the ACM-G10 GPU while the latter could use the ACM-G11 GPU.
- Bow A770: ACM-G10 GPU, up to 16GB memory (faster than RTX 3060 Ti)
- Bow A750: ACM-G10 GPU, up to 12GB memory (faster than RTX 3060)
- Bow A580: ACM-G10 GPU, up to 8GB memory (tied with RTX 3060)
- Bow A380: ACM-G11 GPU, up to 6GB memory (faster than RTX 3050)
- Bow A350: ACM-G11 GPU, up to 4GB memory (tied with RTX 3050)
- Bow A310: ACM-G11 GPU, up to 4GB memory (faster than RX 6400)
Finally, there is a model that has yet to be confirmed and that is the Intel Arc A780. We don’t know what this offering will offer over the already flagship A770 configuration, but it could very well be the ‘Limited Edition’ model.
Intel recently confirmed that due to a lack of software driver readiness and COVID lockdowns affecting the supply chain, they had to postpone the Arc desktop board line to late summer 2022. GPUs available across the entire Arc range are the A370M and Arc A350M for laptops and that too for specific markets such as South Korea and APAC. Intel is expected to roll out its mobility GPUs to additional regions by the end of Q2 2022.
