The Blue team will soon launch its own GPUs next year and preferably make a statement at CES 2022. The first graphics cards will be called Intel ARC Alchemist GPUs as we already know and the company took part in The Game Awards whereas the likes of AMD and NVIDIA were absent.
To take this advantage, Intel shared a quick preview of their upcoming graphics cards and confirmed their launch in 2022. From Q1 of next year, Intel will begin shipping its Arc Alchemist GPUs to customers confirmed in this short teaser:
Here we see a gameplay demo running on Intel’s new ARC gaming GPUs and showing new modern games like Riders Republic, Back4Blood or even the new Hitman 3. Intel will launch its new GPUs with modern features like AI upscaling, or Intel XeSS, a direct competition to NVIDIA’s DLSS and AMD’s FSR.
Not only this, these upcoming graphics options will also support ray tracing in modern games but Intel didn’t share any benchmark numbers to show the performance. However, as per leaks and rumours, Intel will provide competition to up to RTX 3070 when compared with NVIDIA and up to RX 6700 XT if it comes to AMD.
