It’s not long now until Intel officially launches the Arc Alchemist-powered graphics card with some of the latest and most responsive technological inclusions and superior clock speeds.
Although there are no official confirmations, rumors suggest that the final version of the Intel Arc Alchemist graphics card will likely be integrated with 20 TLFOPs horsepower, transforming user experience and taking it to the next level.
Benchleaks has leaked a brand-new entry of the Intel Arc Alchemist Graphics card that was shared on Geekbench 5 platform. The latest entry is for the Alchemist DG2 configuration that is backed with 32 Xe cores, 512 EUs and 4096 ALUs. With the developments and improvements, the latest version of this chipset has improved from the 2.1GHz max clock speed to 2.4GHz.
The reports on the Geekbench’s benchmark reports that the latest DG2 configuration chipset features a maximum frequency of 2400GHz for the GPU, nearing it to the 2.5GHz clock speed of the AMD Navi 22 GPU, ensuring that they get head on with their competitors without any fail.
With the prevailing rumors and the current leaks, it does look like the final version of the Intel Arc Alchemist GPU will be clocking in between 2.4-2.5GHz in the final retail units in the market.
Paired with the FP32 horsepower, the Arc Alchemist GPU should successfully churn out 20 TLFOPs as per the guesses at this point. This is quite a leap of improvement from the 6700 XT and competes in well with the existing NVIDIA RTX 3070 Ti.
However, the gaming performance isn’t solely dictated by the higher horsepower as we have seen in other GPUs in the past. A higher FLOPs doesn’t confer higher gaming performance, primarily because every gaming architecture is designed and developed differently.
Take the example of 6700 XT and RTX 3070 Ti. Although they are grouped in the same bunch due to the performance rate, despite the NVIDIA GPU variant offering 75% better and more horsepower compared to the former.
When comparing the OpenCL performance, Intel needs a lot of refining and work with their Arc architecture GPU chips in that case. The benchmark reports suggest that the chipset was only able to score 85,448 points, which is synonymous with NVIDIA’s RTX 2060 SUPER GPU, which is a very old version.
The Intel Arc Alchemist GPUs perform quite well in the individual benchmark tests and falls short in four out of twelve tests, all due to the lacking drivers and the configuration. This also contributes to the lacking performance in ways.
However, since Intel has yet to launch the final Arc Alchemist GPUs in the market, they still have time to work on the shortcomings and improve them before the GPUs are shipped out.
Keep in mind that the reports are from the leaks and are inferred from the preliminary performance reports. The final Intel Arc Alchemist graphics cards are expected to feature better performance and higher clock speeds with highly optimized drivers to support superior gaming performance.
Stay tuned for further updates once the GPUs are officially launched!
