GPU shipments expected to grow 10% in 2022

Intel is now delivering new high-performance Arc Alchemist GPUs to PC and laptop makers

Intel is now delivering new high-performance Arc Alchemist GPUs to PC and laptop makers

Intel is offering Intel Arc Alchemist GPUs to major OEMs ahead of a wider release of discrete graphics chips sometime in the coming year. Confirmed at CES 2022, this latest development is certainly promising for Alchemist’s release this summer, as it means Intel has silicon in its pocket, ready to go.

Intel has been teasing its discrete Arc GPUs for some time now, and the first chips to roll out will be called Alchemist. These were initially tied to a late 2021 release, but were later moved to 2022. With CES 2022 here and there, we’re finally hearing more about Intel’s graphics and gaming push.

“Intel’s announcement to ship Intel Arc Graphics (codenamed Alchemist) to OEM customers marks a new era in the discrete graphics market,” the release said. “Intel Arc is Intel’s brand of upcoming consumer-grade high-performance graphics products that provide the industry with new options, including many all-Intel discrete graphics platforms. With the release of Intel Arc Graphics over 50 new mobile and desktop Customer designs including Acer, Asus, Clevo, Dell, Gigabyte, Haier, HP, Lenovo, Samsung, MSI and NEC, this is an exciting time for gamers and creators around the world.”

So there you have it, both the desktop and mobile parts are starting with the usual names and faces, and they look pretty good too. Hopefully Intel is right on the exciting side too, because we can really do some disruption to the GPU market right now, not just for performance but ideally more usability.

While this suggests that TSMC is making Intel’s first discrete GPUs, it means the company isn’t entirely immune to any shortages or increased demand the company might face at the time. Still, if Intel makes its own Alchemist GPUs, it probably won’t matter, since no one is immune to the ongoing semiconductor shortage.

In addition to the Intel Arc announcement, Intel also confirmed previously rumored reports that the Director’s Cut of Death Stranding is coming to PC, which is also one of 505 Games. There’s a reason the two announcements are tied together, though, and that’s because the Director’s Cut of Death Stranding on PC will feature Xe Supersampling (XeSS), Intel’s upcoming supersampling technology that’s compatible with AMD’s Comparable to Nvidia’s current offerings.

This is all very exciting because Intel has confirmed that it will produce accelerated Xe-only XeSS algorithms and algorithms that work on most modern GPUs, including those of the competition.

2022 is already looking to offer plenty of healthy competition in graphics cards with the arrival of Intel Alchemist, and it’s only January 4th, but perhaps more importantly, the stiff competition from upgraders could really benefit all of this year’s PC gamer.

Let’s hope both Intel Arc and XeSS offer something to shout about, or just something in these times of silicon scarcity. According to earlier leaks, the entry-level Arc A380 (not the Airbus) will rival Nvidia’s GTX 1650 Super in terms of performance, and is likely locked for release now.
