Intel has finally unveiled the architecture of the Ark Alchemist video card, posing a really serious challenge to Nvidia and AMD.
Although Intel has the most exciting developments around the house in the near future Elder Lake CPU-k Which is also closely related to the release of DDR5 and PCI-e 5.0. But at this week’s innovation event, the manufacturer looked a bit ahead of 2022, when Blue Team will also come out with a separate (and non-integrated) video card.
He talked about the composition of the Alchemist codenamed piece in the Arc product line, which will have 32 Xe cores. These included 16 vector engines and 16 matrix engines, for a total of 521 executives for the entire graphics processor. This essentially means that a video card to be released in early 2022 will actually be able to reach the previously rumored level of performance and end up with our machine with graphics performance similar to the RTX 3070 card.
In addition, the event demonstrated the practical benefits of the Matrix Engine, Nvidia’s DLSS and AMD competitor, FSR, the intelligent equivalent of XESS technology. with this It’s 4K. was extended to Two already released games, originally rendered in lower resolution, prove that technology has advanced even before release. So we have every reason to wait for the release of Alchemist next year, which, in addition to encouraging AMD and Nvidia to develop even more intensively, also a way for some users of the hell of a video card shortage. It is possible.
