Intel Arc Celestial GPUs will compete with high-end offerings from NVIDIA and AMD

Intel intends to enter the graphics card market, competing with the giants NVIDIA and AMD, gradually, but aiming over time to cover all the various categories. This year, the Arc Alchemist GPUs will debut, making their entry initially on notebooks and then moving on to desktops later. As for the computing power, they range from models with 128 Vector Engine (formerly known as EU) to those with 512 VE. Each of these VEs contains 8 ALU shaders, so overall the number of “cores” will range from 1,024 to 4,096. According to initial estimates, the lower-end variants should offer performance comparable to the GeForce GTX 1650 Super or Radeon RX 6500 XT, while the top of the range would come close to the GeForce RTX 3070 and Radeon RX 6800. Obviously, to make definitive judgments, we will have to wait to have them on hand.

In particular, after Arc Alchemist, in the time window of 2023-2024, Arc Battlemage will arrive, followed by Arc Celestial, which will be marketed at least from 2024 onwards. This latest range will be designed to occupy the band defined as "Ultra Enthusiast", in practice the highest, currently occupied by GeForce RTX 3090 and Radeon RX 6900 XT (obviously there will be other models competing for the podium in the future). According to the company, Celestial is now currently in active development. Looking even further, Arc Druid should also debut in 2025, which, unlike Alchemist, Battlemage and Celestial (based on Xe-HPG), will take advantage of a new generation architecture.

Furthermore, given the current shortage, the introduction of new products can only be well received.
