Intel’s Arc Alchemist A-Series desktop graphics cards for gaming PCs are now rumored to include up to 7 models when launched at the end of 2. quarter 2022.
Intel Arc A-Series graphics card lineup is rumored to include 7 Alchemist models: A780, A770, A570, A580, A380, A350, A310
There have been various rumors and leaks surrounding the Intel Arc Alchemist A-Series lineup over the last few weeks. We expect so far five variants plus the ‘Limited Edition’ model, which was the only card officially unveiled by Intel, but there appear to be two more variants that appear to be part of the range according to the latest rumor.
Based on a tweet from a well-known and reliably delicious, Komachi_Ensaka, Intel is planning at least 7 new models. The series will include the flagship Arc A770, which will feature the full Arc ACM-G10 GPU with 32 Xe cores and a 256-bit bus interface. The previous rumor said that the Arc A770 comes with lower memory and it looks like it was essentially a completely different SKU as it will have both 16GB and 8GB of flavor. The core specifications remain the same.
As we move forward, we have the Arc A750 and Arc A580 at the intermediate level. These cards are likely to compete with the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 series and are expected to have 24 Xe-Cores (3072 ALUs) and 16 Xe-Cores (2048 ALUs), respectively. The Arc A750 is expected to have 8 GB of memory (256-bit), but it can also be equipped with 12 GB of memory (192-bit bus) if it plans to go head to head towards the 3060 series. The Arc A580 is expected to have 8 GB of memory.
In terms of entry-level lineup, there seems to be a new addition of the Arc A350 that will sit between the already reported Arc A380 and Arc A310 desktop offerings. The models probably have 8, 6 and 4 Xe cores with the top variant with 6 GB GDDR6 (96-bit) memory, and the other two models offer 4 GB GDDR6 memory (64-bit). Entry-level lineup will compete against NVIDIA’s 3050 & AMD’s Navi 24 offerings.
- Arc A770: ACM-G10 GPU, up to 16 GB memory (faster than RTX 3060 Ti)
- Arc A750: ACM-G10 GPU, up to 12 GB memory (faster than RTX 3060)
- Arc A580: ACM-G10 GPU, up to 8 GB memory (on par with RTX 3060)
- Arc A380: ACM-G11 GPU, up to 6 GB memory (faster than RTX 3050)
- Arc A350: ACM-G11 GPU, up to 4 GB memory (on par with RTX 3050)
- Arc A310: ACM-G11 GPU, up to 4 GB memory (faster than RX 6400)
Finally, there is a model that has not been confirmed so far, and that is the Intel Arc A780. We do not know what this offer will offer in relation to the already flagship A770 configuration, but this could very well be the ‘Limited Edition’ model. The same card has also been reported to fall within Intel’s Arc 9 series, but that’s just a rumor for now. Intel is currently optimizing its drivers for the new line and will be available later this month if they are not hit by further delays.
