Intel’s First high-end GPU to be named Arc, Launches Early Next year

GPU prices have been skyrocketing for the past year due to various reasons such as cryptocurrency mining, chip shortage, scalpers, etc. However, they seem to be coming down, even though the prices are nowhere near the MSRP. Intel has just announced its new consumer high-performance graphics product – the Intel Arc. Intel might just be the saviour of this GPU shortage if they have enough stocks and nail the pricing.

The first generation of Intel’s GPU will be based on the X HPG Microarchitecture, formerly known as DG2 and the codename is going to be Alchemist. Intel also unveiled the future codenames under the Arc brand: Battlemage, Celestial, and Druid.

The Arc brand is said to cover both hardware and software for Intel for generations ahead. Roger Chandler, Intel’s Vice President and General Manager of Client Graphics Products and Solutions said –

Today marks a key moment in the graphics journey we started just a few years ago. The launch of the Intel Arc brand and the reveal of future hardware generations signifies Intel’s deep and continued commitment to gamers and creators everywhere. We have teams doing incredible work to ensure we deliver first-class and frictionless experiences when these products are available early next year.

These GPUs are said to aid gamers and also content creators. It is not only hardware but the software tools that are open and accessible that will back these GPUs. The Arc Graphics are based on Intel’s X, which are scalable graphics and compute architecture designed to deliver exceptional performance and functionality spanning integrated to discrete and data centers to supercomputers.

Intel Arc Graphics seems to be very promising and we are excited about what Intel has to offer in the GPU market. The new GPUs are expected to hit the market in 2022.

Do let us know, what do you think about Intel’s venture into high-end consumer GPUs.
