Leak reveals Intel Arc Alchemist specifications up to the Arc A770M with 32 Xe cores, 16 GB GDDR6 VRAM and a 150 W TGP
Intel has already confirmed that it will officially unveil its Arc Graphics platform today, the live event of which you can watch on the company's website or below. While Intel has scheduled today's event for 15:00 UTC, VideoCardz has revealed a slide that will form part of today's announcement. While VideoCardz has only shared a single image, it reveals most specifications about the Intel Arc Graphics platform.
As the screenshot below shows, the Arc 3 series will begin shipping tomorrow. According to VideoCardz, Intel bases the A350M and A370M on the ACM-G11 GPU, a smaller alternative to the ACM-G10 found in the Arc 5 and Arc 7 series. However, neither the Arc 5 nor Arc 5 series will be available until 'early summer'. Unfortunately, the slide deck does not confirm when 'early summer' is, although we imagine that Intel means later June or July.
Previously, Intel has pitched the Arc 3 series as offering double the performance of the Iris Xe Graphics G7, an integrated GPU found in Tiger Lake and Alder Lake processors. This may only be true of the A370M though, which has 8 Xe cores, equivalent to 128 Execution Units (EUs). In comparison, the A350M has 6 Xe cores, fewer ray tracing units, a lower GPU clock speed and 15 W less graphics power. Both Arc 3 series GPUs have 4 GB of GDDR6 VRAM on a 64-bit bus, for reference.
On the other hand, the A550M features 16 Xe cores with 8 GB of GDDR6 VRAM and a 128-bit memory bus. Accordingly, the A550M requires more power than the A350M or the A370M. It remains to be seen if Intel has an A330M, A530M, A570M or an A750M planned, mind you. Currently, the Arc Graphics platform scales to 32 Xe cores, supported by 16 GB of GDDR6 VRAM on a 256-bit memory bus. Intel claims that the Arc 3 series can handle most games in 1080p at medium graphics settings, so it will be interesting to see how the A770M performs with its 120-150 W graphics power.
