Intel preparing graphics drivers for Arc Alchemist launch

Intel has just published a new driver featuring as many as 32 new PCI IDs featuring DG2 GPUs.

Intel Graphics Driver which should launch tomorrow alongside the 12th Gen Core Alder Lake-S desktop processor series will include support for its integrated Xe-LP graphics. Additionally, the driver will include iGPU support for Alder Lake-P (high-end mobile) and Alder Lake-M/N (low-power mobile), as multiple IDs have been listed in the driver as well.

Furthermore, it appears that initial support for Arc Alchemist is also coming with the driver as the company lists as many as 32 new IDs for the DG2 GPU family. The interesting part here is that there are 6 times more IDs for DG2 GPUs than there are for DG1, which launched more than a year ago. This shows that the Intel DG2 family will feature a lot more SKUs, but probably not as many as the number of IDs seems to suggest.

Intel is now set to announce its 1st Gen Arc GPU series for laptops in the first quarter of 2022. However, the support for desktop GPUs should not be expected at this point in time, considering that all rumors point towards a second-quarter release. It is also unclear if Intel plans to provide two separate drivers for its mobile and desktop GPUs or rather combine them into one package.
