Will the Intel Arc Alchemist range consist of 32 models?

According to a new version of the video drivers, Intel could launch up to 32 models of Arc Alchemist GPUs for desktops and notebooks, a number which indicates that the Santa Clara company will offer a rather large family of standalone graphics cards for various applications. LaptopVideo2Go (as pointed out by colleagues at VideoCardz) reported that Intel drivers v30.0.101.1002 have reserved 32 PCI IDs for the DG2 family of GPUs that will be marketed under the Arc Alchemist brand. Recall that a PCI ID typically represents a separate product or model.

This could mean that Intel intends to release two graphics chips of different sizes and offer them in different configurations. Making 32 distinct products using two graphics processors may not be common, but it is possible. Intel's official documents leaked earlier this year revealed that the company was working on GPUs with five configurations (96EU, 128EU, 256EU, 384EU and 512EU) based on the Xe-HPG architecture. However, this week it emerged that Intel was also evaluating an Arc GPU model with 448EU.

GPU variants At this point it is not clear
are intended for notebooks only and which can be used for both desktop and laptop. Mobile GPUs tend to be available with different TGPs; therefore, a GPU with 256EU can be offered with three different clocks and TGP classification and, consequently, identified with three different PCI IDs. Additionally, Intel intends to use its Xe-HPG-based GPUs on client PCs, workstations, and even servers; therefore, the number of products it plans to offer with its DG2 GPU family will be truly significant. Whether the company will actually ship 32 different standalone graphics cards next year remains to be seen.

To put the number of DG2 models in context, the company currently offers only three Xe-LP-based GPUs: the Iris Xe Max with 96 Execution Unit (EU) for notebooks, Iris Xe with 80EU for desktop and GPU Server with 96EU (mainly used for streaming Android games).
