Intel today introduces the first Arc Alchemist line of discrete mobile graphics accelerators. The portal shared information about all models of the mobile segment of the manufacturer’s graphics cards with their full technical characteristics graphics card e.g.
Intel will release five Arc mobile graphics cards: A770M, A730M, A550M, A370M and A350M. However, starting today, only Arc 3 series models will be available as part of the new notebooks. Arc 5 and 7 series graphics cards will have to wait until early summer.
Alchemist Mobile GPUs are based on the ACM-G10 (up to 32 Xe cores) and ACM-G11 (up to 8 Xe cores) processors. The Arc A550M, Arc A730M and Arc A770M models use the ACM-G10 chips, which offer up to 4096 Single Precision (FP32) processing cores. The Arc A370M and Arc A350M models, on the other hand, use ACM G11 processors with 768 and 1024 FP32 cores. This processor appeared in earlier leaks under the name DG2-128EU.
The flagship Intel Arc A770M model will get 32 Xe cores and 16GB of GDDR6 memory with support for a 256-bit interface. The graphics processor of the graphics card works at a frequency of 1.65 GHz. The TDP of the accelerator varies from 120 to 150 W depending on the configuration of a particular laptop model. The Arc A730M model, on the other hand, gets 24 Xe cores, including 3072 FP32 cores, as well as 12 GB of GDDR6 memory with a 192-bit interface. The power consumption range of the accelerator is 80-120 W. The graphics card processor operates at a frequency of 1.1 GHz.
The Arc A550M uses an ACM-G10 chip with 16 Xe cores. Thus, the number of FP32 cores will be 2048 pieces. The card offers 8 GB of GDDR6 memory with a 128-bit bus. The power consumption of an average accelerator is 60-80 watts. The accelerator’s GPU operates at a frequency of 900 MHz.
The entry-level models Arc A370M and Arc A350M are processor-based ACM-G11. In the first case it offers 8 Xe cores and in the second case it offers 6 Xe cores. Thus, the former has 1024 cores for FP32 operations while the latter has 768 FP32 cores. Both graphics cards get 4 GB of GDDR6 memory. For Arc A370M, it supports 96-bit interface while for Arc A350M, it supports 64-bit interface. The Arc A350M processor runs at 1.55 GHz. The card has a TDP range of 35 to 50 watts. In the Arc A370M model, the chip operates at a frequency of 1.15 GHz, and the accelerator’s power consumption varies from 25 to 35 watts.
Accordingly graphics card e.gIntel has not yet provided any information on the performance of graphics cards from the Arc 5 and 7 series. Arc 3 series models, on the other hand, are said to deliver games at 60 frames per second at 1080p resolution and medium image quality settings. The company compares these accelerators to the integrated Iris Xe graphics on Alder Lake processors.
