The first generation of graphics cards will be released next year
Recently, Intel, the leading manufacturer of semiconductors, has revealed a new project called Arc. These new graphics cards could add a new competitor to the field.
Over the last couple of years, Intel has been overtaken by AMD and NVIDIA in terms of graphics cards. With Arc, the company hopes to establish itself as a valuable member of the field which exploded following increasing demand by PC gamers.
The Arc project will cover hardware, software and services. The first code name for Intel’s graphics cards is “Alchemist”. It uses the Xe HPG microarchitecture which is meant to compete with AMD’s RADEON and NVIDIA’s GEFORCE. According to Intel, the graphics cards will be launched in early 2022.
