The PC community has been waiting a long time for the release of the first truly Intel-owned GPU, and that day is approaching. Given that competition between AMD and Nvidia is likely to enter the market later that year, it looks like a launch window in early 2022 for the first generation of Arc Intel GPUs (codenamed Alchemist). But how do Alchemist GPUs compare to current competitors?
Thanks to new rumors seemingly circulating on the ExpReview community, we may finally have an answer to that question. ExpReview, for starters, is a Chinese tech news site focused on coverage of computers, including reviews, benchmarks, and disclosures. It was launched in the future. March 2022 - Looks like a January release was scheduled, but had to be delayed for several months. In any case, it appears that Q1 is still on the table. p>
Intel's planned offerings include three separate desktop GPUs and five laptop GPUs (most types of desktop cards).
will feature the 512 EU, 384 EU, and 128 EU font. Intel hopes the 128 EU can compete with Nvidia's GTX 1650, but with RT support - something that both the 1650 and 1650 Super lack. Understandably, given the functionality associated with operating these features. The base clock speed will likely be 2.5GHz here. p>
will be available in March with the RTX 3060 and 3070." The EU 512 is expected to come with up to 16GB of VRAM, 4096 ALU, a 256-bit memory bus, 225W of TGP, and a radiator clock speed of around 2.5GHz.The blue team made this model a competitor to Nvidia's RTX 3070 and 3070 Ti.On the other hand, the 384 EU, 3060, and 3060 Ti will be low with 192 bits. Memory bus, max 12GB VRAM, TGP around 200W and 3072 ALU.
Laptop version reduces 128 EU VRAM to 4 GB and reduces power consumption to about 30W. Another low-cost laptop chip, 96 EU, lowers the ALU to 768, while the rest is pretty much the same.

Advanced graphics graphics for laptops are different Intel Alchemist's power consumption differs significantly from their desktop counterparts and has lower screen data transfer rates (up to 150W for 512 EU and up to 120W for 384 EU). The mid-range 256 EU card is a laptop-only card with 2048 ALU, 8GB of VRAM, 128-bit bus, and up to 80W of TGP. As you can see, Intel is mainly targeting AMD. and the current generation of Nvidia cards with the first GPU game launch. As such, Blue Team fans will likely have to wait for the company's next GPU architecture - codenamed "Battlemage" - to replace Intel with AMD RDNA3 and Nvidia Lovelace cards.
