A leak could give us an idea about the range of ARC graphics cards that Intel could launch this year. We could have five dedicated graphics cards but it is not yet known if this “range” totals PC cards and notebook cards.
5 Intel ARC GPUs = 5 versions of graphics cards?
The smallest models are based on the Intel DG2-96EU and Intel DG2-128EU GPUs. These offer respectively 768 and 1024 cores accompanied by 4 GB of GDDR6 memory at a frequency of 14 Gbps. This memory with this frequency, combined with a 64-bit memory interface, provides a bandwidth of 112 GB/s. Just above, we have a DG2-256EU with 2048 cores that will be accompanied by 8 GB of GDDR6 memory clocked at 16 Gbps on a 128-bit memory interface. This will give us a bandwidth of 256 GB/s. We start to climb with the GPU DG2-384EU (3072 cores). The configuration of the card using this chip could be equipped with 12 GB of GDDR6 memory at 16 Gbps. The card would be offered with a 192-bit memory interface to achieve a bandwidth of 384 GB / s . Finally, the “top of the range” model that we have been hearing the most about lately, would be built around the DG2-512EU (4096 cores). The card would be accompanied by 16 GB of GDDR6 memory at 16 Gbps. With a 256-bit memory interface, it reaches a bandwidth of 512 GB / s. Figures that allow it to be positioned around a 3070Ti or more depending on the frequency of its GPU. We are waiting impatiently for the veil to be lifted on these future cards.
