After years of teasers and buildup, Intel has finally released its first discrete Intel Arc GPUs. Two A-series models, the Arc A350M and Arc A370M will soon be available in thin and light laptops, with pre-orders for models from several major manufacturers including Acer, Asus, Dell, HP, Lenovo, MSI , Samsung starting with today. More powerful Arc 5 and Arc 7 GPU models for high-end gaming laptops will follow these Arc 3 GPUs later this year. Details of upcoming desktop GPUs will also be announced later in 2022.


All Laptops With Intel Arc GPUs Announced So Far Feature Intel’s 12e Gen ‘Alder Lake’ mobile processors, and many of them are thin and light models that qualify for the Intel Evo badge. Intel has announced that OEMs will be able to take advantage of its “Deep Link” technology to dynamically balance a CPU and GPU within a laptop’s heat and power envelopes to optimize performance for different types of workloads. work. Arc GPUs and “Alder Lake” processors with integrated graphics capabilities can also work together to accelerate certain video encoding and AI workloads, thanks to their shared Xe architecture.

DirectX 12, variable rate shading, and ray tracing are supported across the lineup, though Intel’s XeSS image scaling technology won’t launch with this first chipset . The company also touts its support for AV1 hardware video encoding and today’s latest HDMI and DisplayPort standards.

Intel’s new Arc Control software will serve as a hub for gamers with community features, streaming and camera controls, performance profiles, and in-game events and rewards. to update drivers monthly and maintain close working relationships with game developers, including zero-day patches for newly released titles.

Intel Arc A-Series GPU Model Specifications

The company promises 60+ fps performance at 1080p in a variety of popular games with the Arc A370M. Creator workloads should also get some benefits.

The two new GPUs announced so far are based on the HPG or High Performance Gaming tier of the Intel Xe architecture stack. Intel previously announced that its first generation of discrete consumer GPUs would be codenamed Alchemist, with Battlemage, Celestial, and Druid already planned for years to come. After hiring former AMD graphics chief Raja Koduri in 2017 to lead development, Intel originally announced a 2020 target for its foray into the high-end discrete gaming GPU segment. The Xe architecture extends from integrated GPUs for portable devices to clusters of supercomputers in data centers.

While the Arc A350M and A370M feature six and eight Xe cores respectively, the upcoming Arc A550M, A730M and A770M were also unveiled with 16, 24 and 32 Xe cores respectively. Each Xe core includes 16 vector engines for graphics shaders, 16 matrix engines for AI workloads, 192 KB cache. All GPU models have the same number of ray tracing cores. have GDDR6 graphics memory.

The Arc A350M is rated at 25-35W while the A370M is rated at 35-50W. This goes up to 120-150W with the highest end Arc 7 GPU.

Intel also announced that 14 games have so far been confirmed to support XeSS later this year. These include Shadow of the Tomb Raider, GRID Legends, Death Stranding, Hitman III, and Anvil.
