The Arc Pro series targets 3D artists, architects, and graphic designers.
Intel’s Arc GPUs won’t be PC-only. The company is expanding its graphics range for 3D artists and architects.
Intel revealed its “Arc Pro A-series” GPUs on Monday. They’ll compete with Nvidia and AMD GPUs for desktop and laptop workstations.
Intel’s Arc Pro A30M GPU targets laptops. The business plans a single-slot A40 and a dual-slot A50 for PCs. Both will be for “small-form factor” PCs, indicating lower-end GPUs.
The company’s website shows the desktop versions will have 6GB of GDDR6 video RAM, while the laptop would have 4GB. All three GPUs are TSMC 6-nanometer.
Intel didn’t specify price or a launch date. The Pro series will have built-in ray tracing hardware, machine learning, and industry-first AV1 hardware encoding acceleration.
First Arc Pro A-series GPUs will arrive this quarter from “leading mobile and desktop ecosystem partners,” said Intel. Desktop Arc Pro graphics cards may only be offered in pre-built workstation PCs.
Intel’s Arc series has restricted availability. The company has been sluggish to deploy gaming-focused Arc GPUs beyond Asia amid allegations of weak third-party support. Optimizing Arc GPUs for older PC games is another matter.
Intel maintains the first Arc desktop GPUs will launch globally by Q3. The business will demo the first Arc Prro A-series GPUs today at SIGGRAPH in Vancouver, Canada.
