Intel Unveils Five Arc Alchemist GPUs for Laptops, Entry-Level Now Available

Intel has announced its first video chips for laptops. The new lineup consists of two Arc 3 SKUs, followed by a single Arc 5 mid-range and two more powerful Arc 7 GPUs. The A350M and A370M have a TDP of 25 to 50 watts, these models should be available immediately in slim laptops – including the Samsung Galaxy Book 2 Pro. The faster Alchemist chips are expected in early summer.

The A350M and A370M have 6 and 8 Xe cores on board respectively (96 and 128 execution units), followed by the same ratio in the number of ray tracing units. According to benchmarks by team blue, the A370M achieves an average of 66 fps in a dozen games at 1080p (medium to high settings), figures from the A350M are not discussed.


The higher segment has considerably more processing cores available: the A550M has twice as many Xe and ray tracing cores as the A370M (16 each), the amount of vram is also doubled (from 4 to 8 GB). The A770M again demonstrates doubling, while the A730M is positioned right between these two skus. The power consumption is also increased, as the A770M can consume up to 150 watts of power.


With a sneer at Nvidia, Intel reports that its driver software does not require a login.

In addition, Intel is introducing its XMX matrix engines, which should accelerate all kinds of AI-based workloads. These will also be used for the self-developed XeSS upscaler, which should be available in more than 20 games in a few months – including Shadow Of The Tomb Raider, Death Stranding and Hitman 3. Furthermore, the hardware AV1 acceleration, which allows games to can be streamed with a higher quality compared to h.264 – while the bandwidth remains the same.


According to Intel’s slides, the first laptops with an Arc 300M GPU will be available from $899, with Acer, Asus, Lenovo and MSI, among others, releasing their Arc-based notebooks in the coming weeks. Finally, Intel has teased a limited run of an unannounced desktop card, expected in the summer of this year.
