Intel has chosen the name its first high-end gaming GPUs, which are expected to ship in the first quarter of 2022. These graphics processing units (GPUs) will be known as the Intel Arc and will compete against high-end graphics cards from AMD and Nvidia.
The first generation of Intel Arc GPUs, codenamed Alchemist, will be available in the first quarter of 2022 for use in desktop computers and laptop computers.
Intel has also disclosed the names of the upcoming generations, which will be known as Battlemage, Celestial, and Druid, among other things.
Arc GPUs will be built on the Xe-HPG microarchitecture, a hybrid of the Xe LP, HP, and HPC microarchitectures. Intel Arc GPUs will be available in the second half of 2016. According to Intel, the Xe HPG architecture should provide scalability and computational efficiency while also including advanced graphics features.
Ray tracing, mesh shading, variable rate shading and DirectX12 Ultimate will all be supported by these graphics cards in their native hardware. Furthermore, these cards will be capable of “artificial intelligence-driven super sampling” in order to compete with Nvidia’s Deep Learning Super Sampling upscaling technology, which increases resolution without placing additional pressure on the GPU.
Intel has also released a short video demonstrating the Arc graphics cards in action in a variety of games. Games such as Forza Horizon 4, PUBG, Metro Exodus, and others were demonstrated in the video. Indeed, it appears that the CPU and GPU from Intel are capable of running Crysis after all.
