Intel Arc has announced as the company’s new graphics unit, launching GPU games starting Q1 2022

Intel arc has announced the brand new name for its graphics product. All future hardware, software and services from the company will now be released under the brand name Intel Arc.

To mark the start of its new vertical, Intel has also named future generations of hardware that will appear under the Intel Arc vertical.

The portfolio under this new product will start with first-generation hardware called Alchemist (formerly known as DG2) and is based on Xe HPG microarchitecture.

Xe HPG microarchitecture will form the core of future Intel Arc graphics products. Considered a combination of “Intel’s Xe LP, HP and HPC microarchitectures,” Xe HPG is designed to deliver distribution and balance efficiency with advanced graphics features.

The first example of this would be the Alchemist. The first generation of Intel Arc products will feature Hardware-based ray tracing and a large intelligent design sample. In addition, it will provide full support for DirectX 12 Ultimate.

In addition to the data on Alchemist, Intel also unveiled codes for future generations under the Arc brand. According to the company, these will be Battlemage, Celestial and Druid.

Intel says the long-standing and consistent long-term vision is aimed at bringing “unparalleled gaming experience and content creation” to gamers and creators around the world.

The company will strive to provide them with new skills in choosing Hardware, complete with open and easily accessible software tools.

The company says Alchemist products will arrive in the first quarter of 2022. Processors under the Alchemist list will be available on multiple desktops and notebooks made by Intel partners around the world.

The company has not yet released any specifications for its upcoming graphics products yet.

While mentioning some of the features, such as tracking ray and leading AI sample, note that Intel Arc will focus on the high-resolution graphics card market.

With this, they are likely to compete with donations from the likes of Nvidia and AMD. How it will go with this competition, however, will only be revealed in the coming months.
