Intel Arc GPU pricing leaks out
Wccftech has a slide from a recent Intel presentation for their partners in Taiwan.
According to the slide, Arc A770 is set to compete with Radeon RX 6650XT and GeForce RTX 3060 Ti in sub 399 USD price range. It also suggests that A750 would compete with RTX 3060 and Radeon RX 6600 for less than $349. The company has recently shared the first official benchmark result for the A750, where Arc GPU beat RTX 3060 by 17% in select titles.
Unfortunately the exact pricing is not listed, but at least the slide lists TDP ranges and memory configurations, some of which were not known before. In this case the Arc A770 is listed with 225W TDP and 16GB and 8GB memory configurations. The same TDP is also listed for the A750, but this model would launch with 8GB, not 12GB as previously reported. What this essentially means is that there is no 12GB & 192-bit SKU listed for any of the desktop Arc GPUs.
The 200-299 USD price range would be occupied by Arc A580 with 175W TDP and 8GB memory on board. This part would compete with GeForce RTX 3050 and Radeon RX 6500XT series. It is worth noting that both competing parts have much lower power requirements (130W and 107W respectively).
Intel’s slowest SKUs in the Alchemist series, the Arc A380 and Arc A310 would both have the same TDP of 75W. The former has already been released, and it features 6GB 96-bit memory, so the latter equipped with 4GB should feature 64-bit bus. According to this slide, the A310, which is yet to be announced, might cost less than 100 USD. This would essentially make it one of the cheapest models released in 2022.
It is worth adding that this new slide looks almost identical to the slide that was posted on Chinese forums around September last year. That slide did not list any SKUs names, but it did confirm that there are only two DG2 GPUs planned and that has indeed already been confirmed.
Wccftech did not confirm when these new cards are set to launch. The flagship A770/A750 SKUs were already showcased, but thus far the company did not mention the official specs for any of these A7 parts. Therefore, those are still a subject to change.
