Intel finally confirmed its new GPU's specs, and it looks like a beast


Recommended Posts

Quote

Intel's first discrete GPU in years looks to be every bit as chunky as we'd hoped for. At its InnovatiON event, where it officially unveiled details about its Alder Lake CPUs, Intel confirmed that the Arc Alchemist graphics processor will pack 32 Xe Cores. Each Xe core has 16 Vector Engines and 16 Matrix Engines, equating to 512 EUs (Execution Units) in total.

 

Essentially, the rumours that Alchemist was going to be a big powerful GPU appear to be spot on. We may still see smaller versions of the chip, lower down the stack, but at least there is hope for a full-fat model. The promise of RTX 3070-like performance is still in the cards and a competitive graphics card market should be awaiting Alchemist at its launch at the start of 2022.

Bring the competition !

Very exciting, though I wouldn't want to pay the adopters tax on it. 

Same.

Love the idea of another GPU vendor on the market.  Don't want it in my rig till the bugs are all ironed out though.  I wonder how well it does on mining or F@H projects though too......🤔

What about price? It's no good having 3070 performance while costing the same or more. We really need competition to bring the prices down again.

Rumors are MSRP will be $800, but MSRP hardly seems to matter right now.

 

I don't think the early adopters issues will be too bad since I think the architecture is similar to what Intel has been using on IGPs IIRC.

$300 more than what the 3070 is supposed to cost. This is the opposite of what it should be. I think computer hardware prices is just what it's going to be from now on, no matter the competition.

I've also seen rumors that it will be closer to the 3080. We'll find out soon. It might be sort of a mixed bag. I could see it being generally slower than the competition but also having stronger and more integrated AI upscaling.
