Intel ARC PRO series
Intel Alchemist for desktop workstations.
Arc GPUs are slowly becoming a daily topic for graphics card enthusiast. There might be no sign of high-performance desktop gaming products from Intel, but the workstation GPUs are clearly being worked on as we speak.
This is yet another trace of the Arc Pro A40 graphics and first sign of the Arc Pro A50. Both are listed alongside each other, suggesting very similar specifications. As a result, the Sandra software has some trouble detecting the configuration of each card.
It appears that A50 PRO features a full ACM-G11 GPU with 8 Xe-Cores (128 Execution Units / 1024 FP32 cores), whereas A40 might be a cut-down part. However, both cards appear to be using 6GB GDDR6 memory, indicating a 96-bit memory bus. In that sense, A40/A50 might be very similar to the gaming Arc A380 GPU which has nearly the same configuration.
As expected Intel is pushing its smaller Arc Alchemist into more and more segments. Unfortunately there is delay in big Arc GPU (ACM-G10) deployment and so far there is no sign of workstation cards based on this processor, not to mention gaming products.
