Intel showed off the Arc desktop graphics card and promised to release it in the summer

Intel demonstrated a standalone Arc desktop graphics card and announced the timing of these accelerators appearing on sale. It happened as part of the presentation of mobile discrete graphics accelerators Intel Arc A3.

The company didn’t go into detail, only saying that the first Arc graphics cards for desktops and workstations will appear in the next quarter, with more new products expected in the summer of 2022. Specific dates were not mentioned. Another video hints that the Arc graphics card will be a limited series (limited edition) in the summer.

The video showed the Intel Arc graphics card in the reference version. It will offer a fairly strict design with two fans and a large heatsink with heat pipes. In height, the accelerator occupies two slots. Interestingly, the video doesn’t show any additional power connectors, but it’s unlikely a graphics card of this tier doesn’t have one.

The video also showed a GPU, apparently a flagship, with 32 Xe cores and 4096 shaders. It will be surrounded by 16GB of GDDR6 video memory. The set of video outputs includes three DisplayPort and one HDMI.
