We are incredibly eager for Intel to launch its first modern discrete graphics card, if for no other reason than to put all these leaks and rumors to rest. That day will come, just not today. Instead, an alleged Arc Alchemist entry has been added to the Ashes of the Singularity benchmark database, and at first glance... Read more...
The discrete GPU race is currently a contest between just two major players, AMD and NVIDIA, but Intel is getting ready to enter the marathon very soon as well.

As we wait for Intel to introduce its first modern discrete desktop graphics cards, the leaks and questions are starting to pile up. For example, will Arc Alchemist in flagship form give AMD and NVIDIA a run for their money in the high-end GPU space? What will inventories look like, and what price points are we... Read more...
For all those who have been following Intel's Xe HPG Scavenger Hunt, it has been filled with a few days of some periodically checking to see if the second question of the contest has dropped yet. Well on Tuesday, Intel dropped a pretty big clue as to when contestants need to be on their toes for question number 2 and... Read more...
Little by little, Intel keeps revealing more bits and pieces about Arc Alchemist, its first discrete graphics cards built specifically for gamers. Even so, there are plenty of questions that remain. One of those questions is what will the graphics cards actually look, and a new purported photo of Alchemist from a... Read more...
Anyone with an aging GPU knows the struggle of trying to upgrade in this climate.
