Intel might be delaying its desktop Arc Alchemist A-Series GPUs by several months

While Intel has already launched its mobile Arc GPUs, it appears to be holding back its Arc Alchemist A-Series graphics cards.

According to a leak from a reliable Intel Enthusiastic Citizen and originally spotted by Wccftech, Intel’s desktop A-series could arrive as late as the end of Q2 or the beginning of Q3 2022. It also seems that there are four desktop cards planned in the A-series: the A770, A750, A580 and A380.

The fastest would be the A770, which is compared to the RTX 3060 Ti in terms of performance. This particular detail, along with the supposed delay, seems to be backed up by Intel’s previous statement that some form of “Limited Edition” GPU would be launched around the middle of the year.

There also seems to be some confusion regarding the A770, particularly regarding the amount of memory. There are leaks stating that it has a boost clock of up to 2.4GHz and 12GB of memory, while the new report says it could have up to 16GB of VRAM.

The leaker who first revealed the leaks, ‘Enthusiastic Citizen’, also said that Intel has plans for a part called Arc A750, which earlier reports said would have 448 Xe Vector Engines (execution units ). According to Vine, this and the A580 would feature 8GB of GDDR6 memory.
