Intel will soon transition into the second phase of the official Xe HPG Scavenger Hunt promotional campaign, which is currently underway. It seems that the company has accidentally provided details about the price scam of non-Xe Arc Alchemist non-game cards that will be released soon with this campaign. In terms of performance, the company’s premium model can compete with the high-end AMD and NVIDIA cards, but for now our information is scarce and we’ll have to wait and see.
The terms and conditions of the Xe-HPG Scavenger Hunt may have indirectly revealed the estimated price of Intel’s upcoming Alchemist GPUs. The prize includes two graphics cards representing the Premium and Performance segments with an estimated value of $900 and $700. But that includes 3 or 6 months of Xbox Game Pass for PC and Intel Arc products.
The grand prize to be given to 100 people includes an “Arc Premium” graphics card and a 6-month Xbox Game Pass membership. 200 people will have the “Arc Performance” graphics card and a three-month Xbox Game Pass subscription. When we release the Game Pass paid series, it comes to a price of $ 825 for the premium model and $ 650 for the model in the performance class. However, there may be some flexibility in the official announcement and fiyadollarsar may differ around $50-100.
We’re currently expecting at least three Alchemist graphics cards, top, mid, and entry-level. The top model will likely come with 4096 GPU cores (or ALUs) and up to 16GB of GDDR6 memory. We don’t have any exact information on performance yet, but judging by the general TFLOPS calculations, it could be at the level of the RTX 3070 Ti or RTX 3080. However, architecture and drivers are also of great importance.
Intel is working with third-party partners like ASUS, Gigabyte and MSI for the announcement. Mavililer confirmed that the new Kardollarsars will take their place in the market in the first quarter of 2022. Some rumors indicate that GPUs with Xe-HPG architecture may be delayed to the second quarter.
