Many have been waiting on more information concerning Intel's high-end Arc A770 GPU, and today Pat Gelsinger revealed both... Read more...
The rumor mill continues to churn concerning the state of Intel's discrete Arc GPUs. The latest murmurings from Moore's Law Is Dead (MLID), is that the fate of Arc has been sealed, and Raja Koduri fired off two tweets in response. There is no question that the journey of Intel's Arc discrete graphics has been... Read more...
Intel's journey into modern discrete GPU territory with its Arc graphics effort has been interesting, to say the least. It's also been a bit more staggered than most people hoped. Though to be fair, it's not easy designing a brand-new architecture from the ground up and then optimizing it for public consumption... Read more...
Using Intel's Arc discrete GPUs in Linux has worked well enough for a while; Intel's graphics drivers in Linux have historically been quite good. However, they wouldn't be identified properly—they simply showed up as "Intel(R) Graphics." The latest Mesa update, version 22.3-devel, corrects that, and in the process... Read more...
Intel's Arctic Sound has finally made its way to market. Intel just formally introduced the datacenter GPU, now known properly as the "Data Center GPU Flex Series." The cards, which come in at least two variants, are targeted at "visual cloud" services like video transcoding, game streaming, AI, the metaverse and... Read more...

Today, Intel formally unveiled the Arc Pro A-Series of graphics cards. The announcement covered the first three offerings that Intel intends to bring to market. These consist of two small form factor desktop GPUs – the A40 and A50 – as well as a mobile option – the A30M – destined for laptops. In the press release... Read more...
Top 300 winners from the Intel Arc Scavenger Hunt received another update about the Arc GPUs they won. While there is still no word on when the Alchemist GPUs will be shipped out, the specific cards the top 300 will be getting were announced, along with an option for those weary of waiting on their prize. Intel's... Read more...
Regular readers are surely well aware that Intel's released Arc as a desktop product over in China. The entry-level Arc A380 Photon card from new vendor Gunnir looks pretty snazzy. A few of those cards have made their way over to the US, first in the hands of one Mr. Ryan Shrout, and now in the mitts of Gamers... Read more...
Intel is not wanting you to forget about the upcoming Arc GPU launches, as it announces a unique opportunity coming up for some of its fans. The tech company has built a specialized tractor trailer to tour North America and showcase its Intel CPUs and Arc GPUs. The road for Arc has been a bit of a rough one so far... Read more...
Intel's published a reviewer's guide for folks taking a look at its recently-released high-end mobile GPUs, the Arc A730M and Arc A770M. We can't publish the guide, or any part of it, so we won't. Intel did give us the go-ahead to talk about some of the contents of the guide, though, and the most interesting part by... Read more...
When we saw Intel's Arc Alchemist GPUs in the figurative flesh last week, there were a few oddities in the presentation. Some of them can be explained as confusing Chinese-to-English translation issues, but differences in numbers stick out rather readily, and there were a couple of those, too. Chief among them was...

Intel Arc desktop graphics cards are real, and you can actually buy one—if you're in China, and have a need for entry-level discrete GPU. The specific model Intel is making available at this time is the Arc A380, which will probably be the fastest option in the "A300" series of Alchemist graphics cards. Since this... Read more...
As times goes on, we're getting a better look at Intel's first foray into discrete graphics in decades, as more Arc-powered laptops get released into the wild. It's been a staggered roll out with Intel starting the Arc party at the entry-level segment. However, higher end configurations have begun popping up overseas... Read more...
As recently as yesterday, we've posted rumors regarding the eventual release of Intel's Arc graphics cards. Sure, they've already appeared in laptops—at least in low-end form—but the higher-end cards, as well as any desktop parts at all, are nowhere to be seen yet. Almost as if in response to the rumors going... Read more...
Rumors of the desktop PC market's demise have been greatly exaggerated. Indeed, while laptops still outsell desktops, the majority of laptops sold don't have discrete graphics. Meanwhile, AMD's setting sales records with its Ryzen processors that overwhelmingly don't include an integrated graphics processor, putting... Read more...
You may have heard, Intel is releasing desktop graphics cards soon. Assuming you haven't just returned from living off the grid for a spell, you already know this. But when exactly are these cards finally going to manifest, and how much will they cost? If the latest rumors pan out, Intel's first Arc Alchemist graphics... Read more...
Back when Intel first announced the Xe HPG Scavenger Hunt in October of last year, we did some analysis on the value of each award to estimate the retail pricing of the cards. Now that the contest is over, winners have received e-mails confirming their prizes as well as the actual retail value of the rewards in... Read more...
As far as we know Intel's Arc Alchemist GPUs are coming in the form of either two or three chips: one with 512 Execution Units (EUs), a much smaller one with 128 EUs, and possibly a mid-size model with 256 EUs. Armed with that knowledge, an experienced enthusiast might reasonably expect Intel to launch five or six... Read more...
Mobile GPUs are cool and all, but everyone wants to see the high-end halo product. A GPU that can run games in 1080p without drawing a lot of power is probably a lot more practical than a high-end processor that can pump out a hundred 4K frames every second, but it's just not exciting. That's why we're so interested... Read more...
Now that Intel has formally entered the discrete GPU space with its first Arc Alchemist GPUs (A350M and A370M), all eyes are focused on how the introductory mobile parts perform and what they might reveal about future products. While we wait for official benchmarks to land, some leaked 3DMark scores have tipped... Read more...
