Intel Arc A60 and A60M Pro announced
Intel extends the family of its professional products with Arc A60 desktop and A60M mobile GPUs.
The A60 Pro is the newest desktop GPU based on Intel Xe-HPG (Alchemist) architecture. Same as its mobile version, called A60M Pro, it offers 16 Xe-Cores (256 FP32 shading units) and 12GB of GDDR6 memory.
Specifications aside, these cards are the first to utilize the third Alchemist GPU called ACM-G12. We have covered many leaks about this GPU, but Intel never acknowledged that such an option will ever be released. However, the picture attached to the product announcements leaves no doubt that this is an entirely new GPU.
The G12 is said to feature half of the G10 GPU cores (16) and up to a 192-bit memory bus. According to Intel, the A60 Pro will feature up to 256 XMX cores, clock speed up to 2.4 GHz, 130W TDP and PCIe 4.0 x16 interface. The mobile version will be clocked up to 1.3 GHz.
The company confirmed that the A60 GPU will start shipping in the coming weeks, while the mobile version should become available in the coming months. According to HardwareLuxx, the card is said to cost $175, which is a great price for a 12GB card.
