Intel has finally announced that the A770 Limited Edition, the flagship of the Arc Alchemist desktop line, will be released on October 12.
Intel’s CEO confirmed to Intel Innovation that the A770 will cost USD 329, which is a very reasonable price for this model. Here’s a reminder that the A770 has a full-featured ACM-G10 GPU with 32 Xe-Cores and 8GB to 16GB of RAM. However, the Intel Limited Edition only has 16 GB of VRAM. The $329 price point may refer to the 8 GB model.
According to Intel, its GPU offers up to 65% more peak performance in ray tracing than rival competitors (probably NVIDIA RTX 3060 series).
Unfortunately, the availability or price of the A750 and A580 GPU has not yet been announced. The face of the Arc Alchemist marketing campaign, Ryan Shrout, has indicated that we will learn more about the A750 GPU later this week. In addition, Pat Gelsinger verified that A770 LE units are now being sent to reviewers.
Intel will bring the Limited Edition to market with its e-commerce and retail partners. The company has revealed the latest images of the packaging that has been teased in recent months.
In addition to the release of the first GPU on October 12, it is also important to know that NVIDIA’s RTX 4090 GPU will be released on the same day.
