News hardware Intel: Its most powerful graphics cards are revealed a little more
Expected to hit the graphics card market this year, Intel has been quite stingy with information thus far, especially regarding its desktop PC models. But this week, interesting information has surfaced on the Internet.
- Intel Video reveals unknown Arc GPU
- An Intel Arc graphics card with three 8-pin PCIe connectors
- Intel Arc anxiously awaited
As Intel mentioned at the end of March the future of Arc on laptops, the manufacturer hasn’t revealed much about its upcoming desktop graphics cards. This week, however, two interesting pieces of information remind us:Intel Arc is gearing up to enter the desktop GPU market by the end of 2022†
Intel Video reveals unknown Arc GPU
A few days ago, Intel held an online conference on the occasion of the launch of Intel ARC Archemist 3, 5 and 7 graphics chips, exclusively for laptops. Seeing the arrival of the models intended for desktop computers will probably have to wait until the start of the 2022 school year.
However, the most curious saw something they probably shouldn’t have seen in a video showcasing the Intel Arc Control software, which Arc graphics card owners can use to configure their component. Stealth Image Reveals Unknown Arc GPU To Battalion whose performance seems consistent.
The program is 2250MHz GPU Frequency and 1093MHz VRAM for an occupancy 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 a joke from Intel, it could be one of the most powerful models. Something to arouse the curiosity of those who are waiting for the concrete arrival of the competitor of AMD and Nvidia in the GPU market.

Other information worthy of our attention: the intervention of Tom Petersen, “Intel Graphics Innovation Fellow”, during the HotHardware show on YouTube. This secretly introduced the Arc Limited Editiona graphics card intended to be installed on a desktop computer.
You have to be extremely observant to see the detail that jumped out in some viewers: the presence of three 8-pin PCIe connectors on the graphics card, providing 450 Watts of power† The WCCFTech site, which was one of the first to point out the details, believes it is a prototype because of the distance between the connectors. Intel may choose to go with 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 anxiously awaited
The fact that internet users are looking for the smallest detail about Intel Arc shows a certain impatience with the arrival of the manufacturer on the market. Until Intel decides to concretely communicate about graphics cards intended for desktop computers, we can expect new studies of this kind being conducted by web sleuths.
