Intel rumored to introduce desktop Arc A310 GPU
Hardware leaker “Enthusiastic Citizen” who has a relatively good track record, is now claiming that Intel might launch an entry-level Arc A310 graphics solutions for desktop.
According to the message posted on Bilibili, this supposed new card would offer similar performance to the just-released Radeon RX 6400 graphics card, AMD’s slowest RDNA2 GPU for desktops. This part is rumored to feature 4GB of GDDR6 memory.
Interestingly, previous leaks have already mentioned Arc A350 desktop part, featuring a cut-down ACM-G11 GPU. This part has not appeared in any leak or rumor in the past few weeks, though. The Arc A310 appears to be either a new name for this SKU or simply an even slower card.
One could assume that Arc A310 could feature either 4 or 6 Xe-Cores from a full configuration of 8. A memory capacity of 4GB also means that it will use 64-bit memory bus, despite the fact that the GPU supports 96-bit bus. That said, the A310 desktop might have similar specs to A330M mobile GPU that launched last month.
The leaker further claims that this SKU would be as fast as Radeon RX 6400. In that sense, it would be a successor to Intel Iris Xe desktop graphics based on DG1 GPUs. Moreover, according to the same message, Arc A750 might offer GeForce RTX 3060 level of performance and A580 should surpass Radeon RX 6600 non-XT graphics.
Intel has not yet confirmed the launch date for its desktop Arc GPUs. The company only revealed it will launch ‘Limited Edition’ Arc GPU in summer. Previous rumors, including those posted by Enthusiastic Citizen himself, are that Intel is rather to introduce desktop GPUs later than expected, possibly not in the second quarter, but in the third.
