Pat Gelsinger gets Arc A770
Intel CEO becomes one of the first owners of Arc A770 GPU.
While NVIDIA is literally counting down to the announcement of GeForce RTX 40 series, Intel is preparing for their own (delayed) launch of GPUs. The Arc Alchemist series that have been released for mobile and low-end desktops are finally entering the most anticipated stage: mid-range/high-end desktop launch.
Gelsinger posed for a photograph with Arc A770 Limited Edition card, Intel’s own design that will also be avaialbe for retail. Intel CEO confirms that the company is now preparing the first batch of these cards for launch, but there is no mention when would that happen exactly.

Intel has been delaying the launch of Arc Alchemist desktop for as long as possible, which now leaves the company with only four days left to fulfil the promise of releasing Arc A7 GPUs ‘later summer’. This date appears to be very unlikely, though.
There is a good chance Intel will launch the GPU series at the Innovation event instead, which is taking place just 4 days later (September 27th). On this day, the company will also unveil its 13th Gen Core desktop CPU series, known as Raptor Lake.
