Intel confirms Arc A380, Arc A350 desktop GPU names through a leaked driver

Arc Alchemist Graphics Card names might have just been leaked… by Intel

As it turns out, the 30.0.101.9999 test driver that Intel themselves accidentally posted on the official website, contains more than just IDs of unreleased hardware.

We were just tipped (by someone who wishes to remain anonymous) that the SYS files in the driver reveal the names of unreleased Intel Xe-HPG GPUs known as Arc Alchemist. The driver already features as many as four SKUs: two desktops, and two mobile:

  • Intel (R) Arc (TM) A380 Graphics Family.
  • Intel (R) Arc (TM) A350 Graphics Family.
  • Intel (R) Arc (TM) A370M Graphics Family.
  • Intel (R) Arc (TM) A350M Graphics Family.
  • Intel (R) Iris (R) Xe A200M Graphics Family.

This is probably the first time we learn the actual names of the upcoming discrete graphics cards from Intel, and better yet, they are confirmed by Intel directly. This is very likely not the full list of SKUs planned for the Arc Alchemist series. Previous leaks have suggested there might be as many as 5 different variants of DG2 GPUs, varying by core count and memory configurations.

The Arc A380 had already appeared on the site. It was spotted by APISAK in an undisclosed benchmark, supposedly offering GeForce GTX 1650 SUPER performance with a clock speed of 2.45 GHz. This model was to feature 6GB GDDR6 memory, so it is probably not the flagship model, now rumored to feature up to 16GB. The A350 might be the competitor for RTX 3050/RX 6400 models coming from competitors early next year. This SKU might offer 96 EUs and 4GB GDDR6 memory.

One would guess that A3XX should be equivalent to the CPU Core i3 performance tier. It is possible that A5XX, A7XX, and A9XX are also planned.
