Intel’s Arc A770 is being prepped for launch next quarter with CEO Patrick Gelsinger and VP Raja Koduri teasing the long-due release on Twitter. The 1st Gen Arc Alchemist GPUs have been repeatedly delayed over the last couple of years on account of immature drivers and the lack of a proper ecosystem. The Arc A770 will be the flagship of its first Xe discrete GPU family.
Featuring 32 Xe cores alongside 32 ray-tracing units for a total of 4,096 ALUs. The GPU core will run at 2.1GHz alongside 18Gbps of GDDR6 memory across a 256-bit bus for a total bandwidth of over 500GB/s. There will be two variants: One with 8GB of memory and the other with 16GB. The former will come with a bandwidth of 512GB/s and the latter 560GB/s. Both SKUs will have a TGP of 225W.
Raja shared the I/O capabilities of the A770. The top-end Alchemist card will support up to four 4K (2160p) or two 8K displays.
