Intel revealed, in the second half of August 2021, that it is preparing a special family of graphics cards that will also be used in playing computer games, and the computer giant will market it under the name Arc. For PCs, they are also expected to receive the Alchemist flag, in order to make it easier for users to distinguish them from built-in solutions. Of course, they will be much more powerful compared to the mobile versions.
According to the latest rumors, Intel Arc independent graphics cards are expected to hit the market in March 2022. They will initially be designed for personal computers and will be equipped with the DG2 branding. That this will be the case in practice, as evidenced by the active development of engines for graphics cards Intel. Of course, these will initially only be available for Windows PCs.
Intel will initially offer two versions of its own independent graphics card. The most powerful will use 512 GPUs along with 16GB of GDDR6 graphics memory for data transfer. Its performance is expected to be similar to Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 3070 and GeForce RTX 3070Ti graphics cards. The slightly weaker version will have 384 GPUs in conjunction with 12 GB of GDDR6 graphics memory. According to current estimates, its performance is comparable to Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 3060 and GeForce RTX 3060Ti graphics cards, which, of course, are still excellent.
