When Intel announced earlier in the year that it would be releasing some of its own GPU products, the metaphorical ears of the two major graphics card companies probably perked up at the inevitability of this new competitor. With Nvidia looking to launch new RTX cards in early 2022, it’s likely that the ‘Green Team’, as well as longtime rivals AMD, may be a bit worried about the upcoming ‘Alchemist’ product. from Intel’s Arc family. and the tech giant recently unveiled a short trailer of its new hardware.


A few days ago, Intel uploaded a 30-second video to its YouTube channel, although it was originally shown at The Game Awards 2021, giving a small idea of ​​what the Alchemist graphics card will be capable of when released. . The trailer hopes to promote the soon-to-be-released GPU that will look to rival products from Nvidia and AMD, both of which have been in the business for a long time, although Intel is no stranger to developing computer technology, it being one of the biggest manufacturers of processors.

As many might expect from a trailer like this, it’s a flashy mix of corporate catchphrases about what the Alchemist will be able to do, alongside some game snippets. current, as Back 4 Bloodand Hitman 3. He also briefly mentions Intel’s XeSS scaling technology, or Xe Super Sampling, which is the company’s take on Nvidia’s DLSS and AMD’s FSR. Graphics scaling, especially in modern AAA games, is an industry standard these days, so it’s understandable that newcomers to the GPU market are looking to make an impact in this region.

Intel intends to release a number of products in its new Arc lineup, with roadmaps suggesting the company could release a new GPU every year for the next three to four years. Early estimates suggest the Alchemist, at least the desktop version, could be on par with the Nvidia RTX 3070, possibly even the 3070 Ti. That means Intel isn’t just looking to release its own line of graphics cards, but it can aim for the high-end market. It has been reported that the laptop equivalent of the Alchemist will likely be available in Q1 2022, with the desktop variant arriving in Q2.

Of course, it remains to be seen whether anyone will be able to get hold of new graphics cards, Intel or otherwise. With sources saying the Alchemist Arc could be easier to obtain than Nvidia’s products, it remains to be seen what the market will look like over the next few months, especially as forecasts predict that shortages could occur. continue until 2023.
