In the second half of last August, Intel revealed 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.
The Intel Arc Alchemist graphics card should easily convince even the most demanding PC gamers. It is supposed to be equipped with 4,096 graphics cores, 512 CPUs and a total of 16 GB of GDDR6 system memory. Enthusiasts have recently proven it with a novelty test. Experts have already measured the performance of the new graphics card and compared it to existing solutions.
The very exciting Intel Arc Alchemist graphics card averaged 9017.52 Megapixels per second (MP/s) in the performance test. In comparison, Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 3070 Ti graphics card achieved a total of 8,369.51 megapixels (MP/s) “only”. This actually meant that the Intel Arc Alchemist graphics card was, on average, eight percent more powerful than the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti.
It is worth noting that Intel Arc Alchemist graphics cards will not be available for sale until the second half of this year. During this time, AMD’s Radeon RDNA 3 graphics cards and Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 4000 graphics cards will also be available. This means that Intel Arc Alchemist graphics cards can be in somewhat of a secondary mode. However, we believe this will convince customers.
