An engineering sample of the flagship graphics accelerator Intel Arc Alchemist with 512 execution units operating at a frequency of 2400 MHz was highlighted in the Geekbench synthetic test database.
The graphics card was tested as part of a system based on a 6-core processor Core i5-9600K (Coffee Lake) and was most likely performed by Intel engineers or one of the company’s partners.
Benchmark data shows that the graphics card uses 512 compute units. This indicates that the accelerator is based on the Intel DG2-512 GPU, which will form the basis of the flagship model of the upcoming series of discrete desktop graphics cards, which are expected to be released in the second quarter of this year.
The performance of the graphics card in the OpenCL test was low – a result of 85,448 points brings the accelerator to the level of the GeForce RTX 2060 and RTX 2070 models of the Turing generation. On the other hand, it doesn’t matter right now since Geekbench OpenCL is not a gaming benchmark.
Early rumors, supported by leaks, predicted gaming performance on par with the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti for the flagship Arc Alchemist accelerator. Below are the performance data of other graphics cards against a technical sample of the Intel Arc graphics card.
