A770, A750, A580 and A380 could arrive a little later

from Maximilian Hohm
Intel’s new Xe-HPG graphics architecture has already been introduced for the mobile sector. So far, however, some SKUs and especially desktop graphics cards are still a long time coming. According to a well-known backer, it may take some time due to issues with the drivers and the previous information on the cards memory expansion may not be correct. Read more about this below.

With the Xe-HPG graphics cards, Intel also wants to become a serious competitor to AMD and Nvidia in the field of desktop computers, which have managed to share this market between them so far. Mobile chips have been launched, but desktop versions are still a long way off. The only official information from Intel on this was an announcement of the Intel Arc Limited Edition, which will be released “this summer” and will likely be based on the fully developed ACM-G10.

However, a current rumor from the hitherto fairly reliable leaker “Enthusiast Citizen” says that there should be new changes in the desktop market and that graphics cards from Intel should only hit the market in the end of the second or the beginning of the third trimester. This is justified by driver problems that must be solved beforehand. According to him, there should be four models from the chip giant to start with. The A770, which we talked about yesterday, is said to be the fastest of them and according to previous reports has 16 GiB Vram, while the A750 and A580 with 8 GiB and smaller GPU expansions are sorted below. The A380 should offer the entry level and roughly compete with the Radeon RX 6400 in terms of performance.

Intel’s Arc A770 should be roughly on par with Nvidia’s Geforce RTX 3070 and beat the Geforce RTX 3060 Ti. However, the latest leaks again call into question the memory extension of the A770. In yesterday’s leaked benchmarks, a lot of it said 16 GiB, and the Arc A770M, the mobile offshoot, also comes with that expansion. For the desktop version, however, 10 or just 8 GiB are now under discussion, which would still leave room for a possible Arc A970 or the already teased limited edition with 16 GiB of graphics memory and the same GPU.
