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...
Near the end of Intel's Arc Alchemist mobile discrete GPU reveal today, there was a 'But wait, there's more!' moment, equivalent to the post-credit teasers that often accompany Marvel superhero movies. Though instead of teasing an upcoming flick, Intel shared a first look at the finished design for its upcoming Arc... Read more...
Intel has announced a launch date for its mobile family of Arc A-series GPUs, and answered three of the top questions concerning its upcoming Arc GPUs. In an online event at the end of the month, the tech company will showcase Intel technologies such as Intel Deep Link, XeSS and more. Intel announced earlier this... Read more...
For a fair while now, we've been talking about Intel's upcoming Arc Alchemist GPUs as comprising two chips: a larger, 512-EU processor primarily intended for high-end desktop parts, and a smaller 128-EU chip meant for entry-level and mobile products. These processors have been known as DG2-512 and DG2-128 for some... Read more...
Once upon a time, it was thought desktop Arc Alchemist cards would be out in January, but January came and went without a peep. Folks latched onto rumors that they'd be here in March, but then Intel instead promised cards for Q2 this year in an investor meeting last month. What about now? The latest information...

For anyone who participated in Intel's Xe HPG Scavenger Hunt, the first verification email has been sent out. The contest ran from last October until the end of January 2022, and will be rewarding the top 300 participants with Intel Arc GPUs once they launch later this year. Intel gave PC enthusiasts a glimmer of... Read more...
If Intel's recent estimation is correct, it will ship a whopping 4 million discrete Arc Alchemist GPUs this year. That includes laptop, desktop, and workstation models combined, but is still an ambitious goal that underscores how important Intel views the discrete GPU market, now and in the future. And to help... Read more...
In case you missed it, Intel's planning to ship some four million or more discrete GPUs this year, and going forward, too. That doesn't necessarily mean four million desktop graphics cards, but to put things in perspective, the entire desktop graphics card market in 2021 was just twelve million units. So saying...

Intel will finally make an earnest run at the discrete graphics market in just a matter of weeks, with its first Alchemist GPUs slated to ship this quarter, followed by add-in cards for desktops in the second quarter and workstation SKUs in the third quarter. It's those desktop cards that we're most interested in, and... Read more...
The first desktop Arc Alchemist graphics cards will arrive in time for summer, barring any last minute snags. Intel confirmed as much ahead of an investor meeting scheduled for this evening, saying desktop add-in cards based on Alchemist will ship in the second quarter, followed by professional models for workstations...

Have you ever noticed that basically all extant mid-range and high-end graphics cards support four display outs? Why has that become the standard? Who knows. It does seem to be the accepted configuration for the last few generations of GeForce and Radeon cards, though. Vendors building graphics cards based on Intel's... Read more...
The Xe HPG Scavenger Hunt sought to promote Intel's upcoming Arc GPUs, and bring a bit of fun to an otherwise bleak GPU market. Oh, and we cannot forget that 300 lucky participants are going to be receiving a free GPU from it as well. And now puzzle master Eric Mantion, better known as CaptGeek, has revealed how the...

Intel's upcoming Arc Alchemist GPUs is easily one of the most-covered series of pre-release products in the history of HotHardware. We've talked about the scavenger hunt, speculated on release dates, admired illicit photos, remarked on the marketing, and perused many leaked benchmarks. Heck, we posted one of the... Read more...
This is shaping up to be a potentially big year for gaming on Linux. The first shipments of Valve's Steam Deck handheld with Proton in tow will go out later this month, and then later this year Intel will debut its first Arc Alchemist graphics cards, which could land with polished Resizable BAR support on Linux. So... Read more...
Saying that the last two years has been a struggle for gamers trying to get an upgraded GPU is a huge understatement. However, Raja Koduri of Intel says that the company aims to get millions of GPUs into the hands of gamers every year. Intel just had the most quarterly revenue ever in the more than 50 years of the... Read more...
