Intel ARC Alchemist graphics card performance and toll positioning slide has leaked out showing the NVIDIA and AMD GPUs the lineup will exist competing against.
Intel ARC Alchemist All Set To Tackle NVIDIA GeForce & AMD Radeon GPUs In The $100 To $500 US Market place Range
The leaked slide appeared on Baidu Forums (via Videocardz) and has been shared with retail partners past Intel. The slide lists downwardly the proposed ARC Alchemist ‘DG2’ lineup for 2022 and respectively competitors they will be positioned against. Co-ordinate to the slide, the lineup will include at to the lowest degree iv SKUs but at that place may be more. Too, the slide looks to be a little old since it doesn’t mention the ARC branding that Intel just recently introduced for its graphics lineup so internal plans might take changed since then.
Intel’due south High-End ARC Gaming Graphics Bill of fare Lineup ($300 – $500 U.s.)
With that said, let’s talk almost the upper echelon of the lineup which volition feature Enthusiast ($400 – $499 United states) and Performance+ ($300 – $399 U.s.a.) graphics cards. These Intel ARC Alchemist GPUs will feature the ‘SOC1’ which could be the internal codename for the Alchemist 512 EU chip. This flake has a TDP range of 175W to 225W. The Enthusiast function will tackle the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 & the AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT.
Do note that Intel doesn’t programme to launch an ‘Enthusiast+’ contender in its showtime-gen ARC lineup as that volition be reserved for the next-gen. This means that the tiptop graphics cards from NVIDIA & AMD such as the GeForce RTX 3080 and the Radeon RX 6800 XT volition remain uncontested.

Intel’due south Entry-Level ARC Gaming Graphics Card Lineup ($100 – $200 US)
Moving on to the lower-end segment, this is ane place where Intel may hit AMD and NVIDIA hard considering both GPU manufacturers haven’t released a single sub-$300 US desktop graphics card in the market place yet. The mainstream segment volition feature the ‘SOC2’ which is the Alchemist 128 European union GPU and volition feature a TDP of 75W and upwards. ARC graphics cards based on this chip will be featured in the ‘Mainstream+’ ($150 – $199 US) and ‘Mainstream’ ($100 – $149 United states of america) segment.
Both AMD and NVIDIA practice have the chips to launch in the entry-level segment but they are beingness pushed to notebooks and laptops first. If launched prior to Q1 2022, and so entry-level ARC GPUs volition tackle AMD’south Navi 24 (RX 6500 Series) and NVIDIA’south GA107 GPUs (RTX 3050 Series) though those may end up over $200 U.s.a. pricing considering where the mainstream cards are currently featured.
A major lead that Intel could accept over the competition, specially NVIDIA since AMD lacks in this department, is AI help in supersampling technologies. Intel has already showcased an impressive demo of its XeSS applied science and based on the expected numbers, Intel GPUs could outperform NVIDIA’s Tensor Core implementation (DLSS) with its XMX architecture. Intel is likewise expected to feature a pocket-sized only useful game enshroud on its GPUs and will be equipped with higher VRAM capacities of upward to xvi GB (GDDR6) across a 256-flake passenger vehicle interface. This would be twice every bit much memory as NVIDIA’south RTX 3070 and RTX 3070 Ti so they may accept to prepare a refresh to counter information technology.
We have seen the Intel Xe-HPG Alchemist GPU-based detached graphics card engineering sample leak out a few months back along with some rumored operation and pricing figures, you tin read more on that here. Based on the timeline, the Xe-HPG Alchemist lineup will compete against NVIDIA’s Ampere & AMD RDNA 2 GPUs since both companies aren’t expected to launch their adjacent-gen parts by the very end of 2022. The Xe-HPG ARC GPUs will be coming to the mobility platform too and volition be featured in Alder Lake-P notebooks.
