A tech blogger has posted unofficial renders of the Intel Arc Alchemist desktop graphics card reference design. It’s claimed the images of the dGPU were not based on guesswork and accurately represent the test cards. The same source also gave some idea of when both the laptop and desktop variants of Intel Arc Alchemist could be released.

Moore’s Law Is Dead has been on a roll in regard to the Intel Arc Alchemist graphics cards and this time around the popular YouTube channel has offered up not only several renders of the desktop Alchemist card (alleged flagship 512 Execution Units model) but also release dates for the mobile and desktop SKUs. Video host Tom explicitly states that the stunning fan-made images of the reference cooler are not based on “guessing” although it’s likely there will be some changes made for the final product.

Obviously gamers generally choose a graphics card based on its performance and price (and availability) but there’s no doubt it does no harm if a unit looks good too, especially for those builders who prefer an open air PC case. It seems Intel is not lacking in this latter regard, with the Arc Alchemist card offering an eye-catching design and colorway. The dual-fan cooler shroud is colored in silver and there are LEDs present for a subtle and attractive light show. The 8-pin and 6-pin dual power connectors can be seen on the same edge as a lit-up Intel logo.

The particular model on show with the DG2-512EU GPU will apparently sport 4,096 shading units and offer a 256-bit memory bus for the 16 GB GDDR6 VRAM to utilize, and it should be capable of taking on rivals such as the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 for instance. As for release dates, the channel goes with a Q2 2022 launch for the desktop variants of the Intel Arc Alchemist cards with the laptop models actually coming out beforehand, possibly in the first quarter of 2022.
