Video of Intel’s Arc Alchemist Desktop GPU surfaces online

A short but interesting video of a bulky twin-slot, twin-fan Intel Arc Alchemist graphics card has surfaced. The video is embedded in the tweet below. The component we took up out of a box and handled yesterday in our Purported Intel Arc Alchemist Desktop Graphics Card Pictured article looks exactly like the one we reported about yesterday in our Purported Intel Arc Alchemist Desktop Graphics Card Pictured article.

The front and back have the same appearance and finish. This video lends credibility to the prior photographic leaks, albeit we urge taking these images with a grain of salt if they are of a genuine so-called engineering sample (ES), as some have claimed.

The scene begins with the Intel branded graphics card lying fans-down in strong enough but generic-looking packaging, as shown in the short linked video clip above. The card is then picked up by a hand that swoops in from the cooling area of the shroud that extends beyond the PCB. The hand turns the sample, allowing us to examine the fan-side, PCB-side, and bracket for a few moments.


Unfortunately, even for Twitter, Ayxerious’ video is of terrible quality. The source provided the highest quality video file accessible, although it was only 640 x 352 pixels.  The PCB of this card appears to support one each of a 6-pin and 8-pin power connector, as evidenced by the images shared yesterday (for up to 300W).

With a more precise representation, we can make more confident assessments of future technical specifications. This PCB appears to have eight GDDR6 memory chips affixed to it, presumably with a 256-bit interface. In addition, there is evidence of at least ten VRM phases.

Finally, this is one of the more significant Arc Alchemist GPUs on the way, and it could even be the top-end 512EU model, which is said to compete in terms of performance with the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 Ti desktop card.

The thought of Intel entering the PC discrete graphics card market has sparked a lot of anticipation, making it a three-horse race worth monitoring. Despite its long history with its GPUs, which have improved by leaps and bounds in recent years, Intel is far from a thoroughbred in GPUs.

It still has a lot to prove in terms of hardware and software support, but both wings have strong-looking teams. Recent benchmarking leaks have given some certainty about performance, but it’s still a wait-and-see product with performance and features that we can’t take for granted.
