With a layered release scheduled for 2022, Intel’s Arc Alchemist GPU lineup has almost reached the gaming community. Starting with the Laptop product line, GPUs entered the market at a time when silicon shortages caused GPU prices to skyrocket everywhere, meaning an increased supply of hardware was a welcome change. Welcome to gamers.
While there’s no conversation around Intel’s GPU hardware, they’ve actually been making them since 1998. Since that time, AMD and NVIDIA have been the top dogs in the industry, but that’s not the case. which means that Intel can’t afford to produce competitive hardware. The Arc series is built on the Xe-HPG architecture, spans generations, and is supersampled plus ray tracing enabled. The first generation, formerly known as DG2, has been renamed Alchemist, with the Battlemage, Celestial, and Druid generations following.
Intel’s GPU solutions are primarily known as a built-in feature of their popular CPUs, although not as powerful as the discreet GPUs gamers have come to know in the Nvidia GTX, RTX and AMD RX series, still puts Intel in a very promising position in the market. Arc Alchemist Desktop GPUs, We discreet and will be released sometime in Q2 2022 is rumor to compete with the RTX 3070 Ti. If true, this means that the Alchemist Desktop GPU will offer strong competition in an otherwise limited market, which is good news for those who want more options and lower prices.
