Here are the first photos of Intel Arc Alchemist

The well-known leaker and YouTuber Moore's Law Is Dead showed in a video some real photos of Intel Arc Alchemist, a GPU that Intel is expected to launch in the coming months and which, according to rumors, would enter pre-production. The one in the images could be the equivalent of the reference cards sold by AMD, in case Intel decides to market its Intel Arc solutions directly.

In the photos, we see a board with black PCB and silver cover, with a dual fan cooling system. The card should have a TGP of 225W and for the power supply there are two 8 + 6 pin connections, we do not yet know if they will be replaced by the new connector that we should see equipped on the next PCIe 5.0 GPUs.

We remind you that the card should integrate support for ray tracing and Intel XeSS technology, an alternative to DLSS and FSR developed by Intel which, given what the company recently showed, seems to be promising.

Moore's Law Is Dead leaks are not limited to Arc Alchemist: the YouTube channel also showed some renders of the desktop version of DG2 with 128 EU, also claiming to have seen the card live. Since, previously, the images shown in these rumors have always been almost identical to the actual card, there is no reason to believe that this time things will turn out differently. Recall that the entry level variant of DG2 offers 1024 shading units, 8GB of GDDR6 memory and a TDP of only 75W, which does not require additional power connectors.
