Intel finally confirmed the specifications of its new GPU, it looks like a beast

Intel’s first discrete GPU in years looked as thick as we hoped. In its Innovation event, Intel officially announced detailed information about its Alder Lake CPU, confirming that the Arc Alchemist graphics processor will contain 32 Xe cores. Each Xe core has 16 vector engines and 16 matrix engines, which is equivalent to 512 EUs (execution units) in total.

Essentially, the rumors that Alchemist will become a powerful GPU seem to be correct. We may still see smaller versions of chips, lower stacks, but at least there is hope for a full-fat model. The promise of performance similar to the RTX 3070 still exists, and the highly competitive graphics card market should be waiting for Alchemist to launch in early 2022.
