Along with its Arc Alchemist GPUs, Intel is launching an AI-powered smart upscaler most similar in form to NVIDIA's DLSS. It's known as XeSS, and just like DLSS, it requires game integration. Even though the higher-end Arc cards are not yet publicly available, Digital Foundry was given early access to do one of its... Read more...

Intel's Ryan Shrout and Tom "TAP" Petersen are on the trail again for the release of the Arc A770 and A750 GPUs. The pair were recently in Berlin, Germany, and spoke with German site PC Games Hardware (PCGH) as well as popular YouTube nitpickers Digital Foundry. There were a few interesting take-aways from the... 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...
One of the key features of NVIDIA's RTX graphics cards is DLSS. Standing for Deep Learning Super Sampling, the technology uses AI to intelligently upscale real-time graphics with superior quality compared to traditional methods. Well, Intel would like you to know that it has its own solution that it believes is... Read more...

Ashes of the Singularity, which is in fact a video game and not just a benchmark, famously maintains a large benchmark database. That's one of many such lists that Twitter bot @BenchLeaks monitors for unrecognized CPU and GPU results. The bot's tearless retina spotted a result in the Ashes of the Singularity database...

If you're a PC gamer, you are likely someone who likes to revisit old favorites. After all, one of the greatest benefits of PC gaming (versus game consoles) is the ability to freely go back and enjoy classic titles from ages past. Doing so may be clumsy on Intel's Arc GPUs, however, as it turns out that they don't... Read more...
The only Arc graphics cards we've seen so far have been a couple of "Limited Edition" models of the higher-end parts and then of course the Gunnir Arc A380 Photon card. The fact that nearly a month out from their rumored release the only available desktop Arc parts were the Gunnir cards was causing some folks to doubt... Read more...
If you've ever done any livestreaming on the internet, then you already know that one of the most important technical aspects of doing so is properly configuring your stream settings. Your selection of video encoder and its bitrate can have a particular influence. Most folks streaming these days are using the... Read more...
Recent rumors have implied that top brass at Intel were considering the cancellation of Arc's entire product line. While Intel has been known to do such a thing—that was the eventual fate of Larrabee—it seems unlikely to us given that the AXG (Accelerated Computing Systems and Graphics) division cost the company some...

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...
One of the key characteristics we've seen so far in Arc graphics card benchmarks is a predominant softness in DirectX 11 titles versus those using the newer DirectX 12 and Vulkan APIs. The latter two APIs are much lower-level interfaces, giving game programmers greater control over the hardware. As a result, there's a... Read more...
If you're reading this post, then you're surely already familiar with the Gunnir Arc A380 Photon graphics card that we've posted about several times before. This is the first and foremost add-in-board partner card for Intel's Arc family of GPUs, and it's currently making the rounds of tech hardware journalism. The... Read more...
The Intel Arc A380 has barely reached US shores, and we have only recently seen the first Intel-sanctioned teases of the more powerful Arc A750 Limited Edition. However, Intel has several more Arc models on the way, and we may have just caught our first glimpse of the littlest (in more ways than one) GPU in the... 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.
