Intel Enters The PC Gaming GPU Battle With 'Intel Arc'

Intel is all set to introduce its upcoming high-end gaming GPUs in the industry. The company will brand these GPUs as Intel Arc.

This new Intel Arc will cover both software and hardware. The first of these, originally known as DG2, is set to arrive in Q1 2022 under the code name “Alchemist”. The performance of this particular GPU is yet to be experienced but Intel did post a sneak peek of Intel Arc Graphics.

Intel’s upcoming GPUs will be available for both desktop gaming and notebooks in early 2022. So, there’s a new competitor between AMD and Nvidia GPUs. Yesterday, Intel released a teaser video showing prototype silicon powering games like PUBG, Psychonauts 2, Metro Exodus, and others.

This Looks Awesome!

Intel’s Arc GPUs will be capable of mesh shading, variable-rate shading, video upscaling, and real-time ray tracing. Intel is also promising AI-accelerated supersampling, which is a threat to Nvidia’s Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS) technology. 

“The launch of the Intel Arc brand and the reveal of future hardware generations signifies Intel’s deep and continued commitment to gamers and creators everywhere, We have teams doing incredible work to ensure we deliver first-class and frictionless experiences when these products are available early next year.”

Roger Chandler, Head Of Intel’s Client GPU Business.

The aim of all these technologies is to upscale games from a lower resolution to provide smoother frame rates without a noticeable compromise in image quality. If you are a gamer, you know how important FPS and a High Refresh rate are…

Team Intel Explaining Intel’s Upcoming “Intel Arc Graphics”

Till now, Intel is only teasing the brand of its Arc GPUs today and revealing that “Battlemage,” “Celestial,” and “Druid” are all codenames for its future generations of Arc GPUs. More details and specifics are planned for later in 2021.

Since we are facing the global semiconductor shortage, the claims from intel might be delayed as this global issue has a major supply-demand crisis. So, you may face some delays regarding every new product that’s powered by a semiconductor chip.

Intel is way behind when it comes to gaming GPUs. Nvidia and AMD have covered a lot of markets by producing powerful GPUs for the industry. Intel GPUs have just been used as primary GPUs in laptops.

AMD GPUs have covered a huge market in recent years. With the help of these powerful GPUs, Tesla Model S owners will be able to play high-quality games like Cyber Punk and The Witcher in their vehicles.

The most popular secondary GPUs in laptops are Nvidia and AMD, they have captured a vast market in gaming PCs too. So, if intel is to compete with these brands, they have to produce better, powerful, and pocket-friendly GPUs to capture a huge market.
