How Will Intel Arc Graphics Card Series Be Named?

The upcoming Arc graphics cards will go on sale with simple names such as “aXXX and bXXX” according to the leak.

Intel is making its last efforts to make a rapid entry into the graphics market under the “Arc” brand. We learned the reasons behind the names such as Alchemist, Battlemage, Celestial and Druid that the blue team will use in the coming years. So what about the terminology of graphics cards?

A user guide prepared by the company for additional board members @momomo_us leaked through. Accordingly, new cards will be released with names such as Intel Arc a170, a150 and a130. The lowercase letter a from Alchemist is remarkable and we cannot say that it is very pleasing to the eye.

The leaked design document shows that the first-generation GPUs are “Intel Arc a-series graphics” and “1st generation GPUs”. It shows that it will be presented with phrases such as “generation Intel Arc graphics”. We expect at least three graphics card models soon, and the naming might be:

  • Intel Arc a300, a500 and a700 (based on performance)
  • Intel Arc a130, a150 and a170 (based on performance)
  • Intel Arc a800, a600, and a200 (based on the number of Xe units)

It seems that Intel will not use any nicknames like RTX, GTX or RX for its graphics card series. We will see future series with names such as Arc bXXX, Arc cXXX and Arc dXXX.

Intel has officially confirmed that it will release the first generation of discrete graphics cards belonging to the Arc family in the first quarter of 2022. We recently shared many details about the Arc Alchemist series. In addition, according to various leaks, partners such as MSI, ASUS and Gigabyte are currently producing their special cooled models.
