news hardware Intel: its most powerful graphics cards are revealed a little more
Expected this year in the graphics card market, Intel has been pretty stingy with information so far, especially regarding its desktop PC models. But some interesting information has hit the Web this week.
- Intel Video reveals an unknown Arc GPU
- An Intel Arc graphics card with three 8-pin PCIe connectors
- Intel Arc eagerly awaited
If Intel mentioned the end of March the future of Arc in laptops, the manufacturer has not yet revealed much about its upcoming graphics cards in desktop computers. This week, however, two interesting facts remind us that‘Intel Arc is preparing to enter the desktop GPU market in late 2022.
Intel Video reveals an unknown Arc GPU
Some days ago, Intel held an online conference on the occasion of the launch of the Intel ARC Archemist 3, 5 and 7 graphics chips, exclusively for laptops. To see the arrival of models destined for desktop computers, we will probably have to wait until the start of the 2022 school year.
However, the most curious saw something they probably shouldn’t see in a video introducing Intel Arc Control software, which owners of an Arc graphics card can use to configure their component. Stealth Image reveals unknown Arc GPU for Battalion whose performance seems consistent.
to the program, GPU frequency of 2250 MHz and VRAM of 1093 MHz for a utilization rate of 99.46%, a thermal envelope of 172W and a temperature of 80°C. If it is indeed an existing graphics card and not an Intel joke, it could be one of its most powerful models. Something to arouse the curiosity of those who await the concrete arrival of the AMD and Nvidia competitor in the GPU market.
An Intel Arc graphics card with three 8-pin PCIe connectors
Another fact that deserves our attention: the intervention made by Tom Petersen, “Intel Graphics Innovation Fellow”, during the HotHardware program on YouTube. This sneakily introduced the limited edition Arca graphics card intended to be installed in a desktop computer.
You have to be extremely attentive to see the detail that jumped out at some viewers: the presence of three 8-pin PCIe connectors on the graphics card, which ensures a power of 450 Watts. The WCCFTech site, which was one of the first to point out the detail, believes it to be a prototype due to spacing between connectors. Intel may opt for the ATX 3.0 specificationwhose 16-pin connectors allow up to 300 Watts of power, compared to 150 Watts for 8-pin PCIe connectors.
Intel Arc eagerly awaited
The fact that Internet users are attentive to the smallest detail regarding Intel Arc shows a certain impatience before the arrival of the manufacturer on the market. Until Intel decides to communicate specifically in graphics cards aimed at desktop computers, we can expect further research of this kind by web sleuths.
