The revealed results of the benchmark test of the Intel Xe-HPG GPU with 512 executable units and a clock speed of 2.1 GHz, show the same level of performance with the RTX 3070 Ti graphics card.
Expected Intel Arc Alchemist graphics card This time in the benchmark results revealed on the website SiSoftware have seen. According to published information, this card is made of all 4096 silicon cores Intel DG2-512EU and considering its performance on a Coffee Lake-S desktop platform, we are sure that we are dealing with a separate desktop graphics card.
Test data show that the clock speed of this chip reaches 2.1 GHz, which depending on the architectural performance of this chip in such tests, can speed up the base or boost clock of this GPU. Be relevant. In addition, it must have a memory capacity of 12.8 GB The card’s VRAM pointed out that this is most likely an error that only shows part of the card’s 16GB frame buffer. In any case, it should be said that the flagship of the Arc Alchemist series is expected With 16 GB of memory Introduce GDDR6 with 256-bit memory port.

But when it comes to GPU performance data in the General Purpose Processing section, we come across some interesting results. The flagship of the first series of separate Intel graphics cards outperforms the high-end RTX 3070 Ti It is from Nvidia and with a score of 9017.52 is about 7.7% faster than the representative of Nvidia with a score of 8369.51.

Of course, these two cards have different positions in different parts of this test; Arc Alchemist, for example, performed faster than the 3070Ti in the half-float, double-float, and quad-float tests, but left the single-float test to Nvidia’s representative. This model, which has not been officially registered yet, will be available in two versions, desktop and laptop. Recent rumors suggest a frequency of 2.5 GHz and a power consumption of 225 watts.
It is said that this card will be released to compete with the RTX 3070 and with a chance to achieve the performance of the RTX 3070 Ti. Nvidia is well aware of this, which is why it is launching an updated version of the RTX 3070 Ti with 16GB of VRAM. However, most of Intel’s focus is on the low-end Arc product model. Where it seems to have received less attention from AMD and Nvidia. Similar approach applies to Arc workstation series products It was also assumed that the prices would be much lower than the products of the Ampere series Nvidia’s RTX to be released.
Moore’s Law is Dead YouTube channel has revealed several images of Intel’s unannounced graphics card. This channel was one of the first sources to announce the possibility of this card competing with the NVIDIA RTX 3070 series. Another interesting point here is that MLID claims that Arc Alchemist graphics cards can have up to 32 GB of VRAM memory to keep Intel products ready to compete before Nvidia’s Lovelace workstation graphics cards are released.
Intel Arc Alchemist graphics card It will be officially launched in the first quarter of 2022. However, it seems that we have to wait a little longer for the Intel desktop series of graphics chips. Because Intel has so far only portable systems OEM Unveiled with Arc GPUs.
