Intel BGM-G10 GPU in the labs
Intel Tech Tour provided direct access to the company’s most secure places currently engaged in next-gen client and enterprise product development. One of the products that was already being tested was Intel’s next-gen discrete GPU.
HardwareLuxx, who took part in the Tech Tour, found an Intel BMG G10 chip tray at the Failure Analysis Lab. The name clearly confirms that this is the next-generation Battlemage discrete processor, now seemingly confirmed as G10. Unfortunately, the media was not allowed to take any photos, so we must take their word for it.
In the Failure Analysis Lab, we came across a tray that evidently contained chips from the next Arc generation – at least, there were already corresponding chips in the analysis, which were clearly labeled as “BMG G10.”

This graphics processor will succeed the Alchemist ACM-G10 GPU, but given Intel’s confusing naming schema, is it is not clear if this is indeed the top-tier SKU. Worth reminding that ‘ACM-G12’ is actually higher end than G11, although the names may suggest otherwise.
Intel’s BGM-G10 has been mentioned in leaked roadmaps dating back to at least Q3 2023. The company’s plans include at least two GPUs, specifically the G10 and G21, targeting power consumption of 225W and 150W TDPs, respectively. In terms of specifications, the new GPU is expected to boast double the core count of the ACM-G10, reportedly featuring 64 Xe-Cores. Intel is anticipated to maintain a 256-bit memory bus for BCM-G10.
The Intel Battlemage series is scheduled for a 2024 release, although the company has not officially confirmed the exact timing. Rumors suggest it might make its debut in the first half of the year.
