Intel’s new graphics brand, Arc, will offer a discrete GPU in 2022

“Today marks a key moment in the graphics journey we started just a few years ago.

The launch of the Intel Arc brand and the reveal of future hardware generations signifies Intel’s deep and continued commitment to gamers and creators everywhere.

We have teams doing incredible work to ensure we deliver first-class and frictionless experiences when these products are available early next year,” said Roger Chandler, Intel vice president and general manager of Client Graphics Products and Solutions.

Under the Arc brand name, Intel will launch its forthcoming high-performance graphics solutions for consumers.

It will be built on Xe HPG microarchitecture, codenamed Alchemist, for the initial generation of products.

In addition to hardware, Intel Arc will offer software and services.

Intel NUC 11 Extreme Kit with 12-inch GPU launched.

Intel also unveiled the code names for future generations, including Battlemage, Celestial, and Druid, in addition to the new brand.

These are the first-generation products, which are expected to incorporate the much-rumored discrete graphics processor.

Launch of the first-generation items is expected to take place in the first quarter 2022. Company officials have promised to provide further information later in the year.

“Our long-term objective is to deliver seamless gaming and content production experiences to gamers and creators throughout the world, bringing them innovation and choice in hardware coupled with open and accessible software tools,” the business said.

Since its inception in 2020, Intel’s Xe architecture has helped deliver remarkable performance across a range of platforms, from integrated to discrete, data centres to supercomputers.

This microarchitecture is said to provide scalability, computation efficiency, and sophisticated graphics features for all of Intel’s forthcoming Arc graphics devices.

These items will have hardware ray tracing and AI-driven supersampling. DirectX 12 Ultimate will be supported as well.
