Intel is highly anticipated Arc Alchemist video game cards may well be postponed to mid-summer based on the latest information from Igor’s laboratory. The launch of the graphics card is scheduled for the end of the 2nd quarter, but due to various driver issues, the launch is probably postponed.
The first Intel Arc Alchemist gaming video card is reportedly postponed until mid-summer 2022, drivers again called the reason for the delay
A few days ago we reported the expected release date of Intel Arc Alchemist graphics cards for the gaming segment. Based on the Alchemist Xe-HPG architecture, the first Arc A series cards will appear on store shelves by the end of this quarter. In fact, Intel has already announced the top, Video card Arc Limited Editionto launch by the end of the 2nd quarter of 2022 Intel too announced its Scavenger Hunt winners will be the first to receive new graphics cards before they hit store shelves.
But for now, reports of a proper launch look bleak. Igor Volosek reports that, according to various sources, Intel may postpone the actual availability of its line of gaming graphics cards until the end of the summer. The period from July 1 to August 31 is set. Igor also reports that AIB is very disappointed with Intel’s plans and does not know when the video cards will actually be released.
The reason, again, is called the driver. Maybe you remember ours previous report it also says that drivers are the main cause of the delay, and Intel wants to deal with all the issues before releasing its cards. This is one of the reasons why Intel has made a limited launch of its first Arc A series products in Asian markets. The Arc A350M and Arc A370M GPUs for laptops right now, available only in some Asian regions and in some laptops. The US, EU and other major regions have not yet gained access to Arc-based laptops. Since the entry-level lineup comes in such a limited volume, one can imagine how low the high-end Arc 5 and Arc 7 series will turn out.
As for how this delay affects the whole lineup, then final specifications already laid in stone, so the watch and firmware are unlikely to change. But now drivers are in doubt at best. In fact, no one has the ultimate drivers, and those in their hands should either camouflage the actual performance, or simply avoid negative messages through online press media.
NVIDIA and AMD have already made sure based on their findings that their current offerings are competitive enough to handle all that Intel offers in the form of Arc Alchemist gaming graphics cards. The abolition of the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 Ti 16GB video card and AMD, which does not put forward the RX 6750 XT much higher than the RTX 3070, shows that both GPU giants are very confident in their existing lines. Availability in mid and late summer will also mean that Intel’s lineup will be very close to launching next-generation NVIDIA and AMD graphics cards, which are also expected around the 4th quarter of 2022.
Also, all these delays and driver issues don’t bode well for Intel’s first graphics launch. Also, if this continues, Intel could lose potential partners on the board, which will affect the further proliferation of their Arc graphics cards. Overall, it doesn’t look very good, but hopefully Intel can highlight the best launch dates in its future event “VISION”. and then more details and disclosure of prices at Computex 2022 later this month.
