Intel has announced the specifications of the upcoming trio of Alchemist video cards that will be launched soon. The A580, A750 and A770 use the ACM-G10 die. For the top model, this is fully deployed, with 32 Xe cores and a 256-bit memory bus. There is 8 or 16 gigabytes of ram available and the TDP is 225 watts, with a clock speed of 2.1 gigahertz. This model should outperform the 3060 Ti and come in at between $350 and $400.
Below is the A750 with 28 Xe cores, 8GB of memory via the same bus width and a clock speed of 2.05 gigahertz, while the TDP also remains the same. The A580 gets 24 cores at 1.7GHz and the same memory configuration, with a TDP of 175W. This model should come on the market between $200 and $300 and, thanks to better ray tracing, Xe-super sampling and AV1 support, is a more attractive alternative to the slightly slower 6500 XT.
The Arc 7 cards will launch later this month, with the A580 later this quarter. There will be a reference design and Intel will also release its own cards, which should be available worldwide. Custom designs from board partners can also be expected.
Note: Currently, the US dollar is worth nearly as much as the euro, but European prices will be affected by the prevailing exchange rate, duties, transportation costs and taxes.
