When Intel announced the lineup for its Arc "Alchemist" graphics cards, there were three tiers, just like its CPUs. We've seen Arc A300 GPUs, and we've seen Arc A700 GPUs, but so far, the A500 series is missing in action. Well now, a new benchmark leak may contain exactly that; with 16 Xe Cores, it lands directly... Read more...
If you follow the competitive overclocking scene at all, you are probably familiar (at least in passing) with the name of Shamino. The legendary figure works at ASUS now, but he's still up to his old tricks. In fact, he just released the simply-named "Arc OC Tool", which fellow expert tuner Skatterbencher used to take...

So Intel's first discrete GPUs based on the Alchemist design, known as Arc A770, Arc A750, and Arc A380, have been out for a bit. Since that launch, they've seen significant performance improvements thanks to driver updates as well as the implementation of XeSS in titles like Marvel's Spider-Man, Hitman 3, and Redout...

Did you check out our review of the new RDNA-3-based Radeons yet? Those GPUs are extremely high-powered in every sense, and that means that they're out of reach for the majority of the market. Intel's Raja Koduri apparently intends to target exactly that meaty middle, as he recently told a group of Indian tech... Read more...
One of the sticking points hampering adoption of Intel's Arc GPUs has been its performance in older titles, particularly those using much older versions of the DirectX API. You could argue that it doesn't matter whether the card gets 150 or 300 FPS in CS:GO, but some people take that kind of distinction very... Read more...
There wasn't a lot of chatter about this when the reviews went up, but Intel's Arc graphics cards suffer from relatively high power draw for their performance. That's true not only under load, but also when idle. While even the monstrous GeForce RTX 4090 will drop down to less than 25 watts at idle, the Arc A770 can... Read more...
We know many of you have been eagerly anticipating the arrival of Intel’s Arc Alchemist A7 series discrete GPUs. Well, we can confirm the cards have arrived and we have begun testing. Although the full review embargo hasn’t lifted, we are able to show off the cards and give you a sneak peek of what we have in hand... Read more...
Intel has finally given pricing and a launch date for its highly anticipated Arc Alchemist A770 GPU. Pat Gelsinger, CEO of Intel, announced the company's desire to keep gaming GPUs affordable. Many have been waiting on more information concerning Intel's high-end Arc A770 GPU, and today Pat Gelsinger revealed both... Read more...
Intel's "soon" for launching its Arc Alchemist desktop GPUs may actually be sooner rather than later. Contestants of the Xe HPG Scavenger Hunt were emailed late Friday, asking for their shipping address to be confirmed. The Intel Xe HPG Scavenger Hunt began nearly one year ago on October 27, 2021. Winners of the... Read more...
The highly anticipated launch of the Intel Arc A7 series of discrete GPUs looks to be coming sooner rather than later, at least for the mobile version. Pre-orders are now being taken for the Serpent Canyon NUC 12 Enthusiast, and it includes an Arc A770M. The NUC12SNKi7 is available now for pre-order, with an Intel... Read more...
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...
If you are looking forward to testing out Intel's upcoming Arc GPUs, then you may get some cool software with your purchase. The tech giant is looking to promote the release of its Alchemist lineup by providing buyers with a few games and software titles to use with their new GPU and CPU combo. The launch of...

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...
Intel is gearing up to hype its Arc Alchemist GPUs by giving gamers a hands on experience via the Intel Arc Gaming Truck. The decked out rig will be making its first appearance September 2-5, 2022, at PAX West in Seattle, WA. Eric Mantion, aka CaptGeek, of Intel The Intel Arc Gaming Truck was announced in early...

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...
