According to latest rumors, Intel’s Xe-HPG Arc Alchemist GPU could cost around $650-$825. All speculations are based on Intel’s Arc Alchemist GPU giveaway called Xe-HPG Scavenger Hunt, as the latter is a competitive event, in which Intel will give away some of the first Arc Alchemist graphics cards.
Given the giveaway details, we assume that the mentioned “Arc Premium” graphics card is the DG2-512EU GPU and it will cost around $825. This GPU is expected to feature 4,096 shading units and 16GB of GDDR6 memory across a 256-bit memory bus, which would make it a competitor against the AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT and Nvidia RTX 3070 series.
It is also possible that the mentioned “Arc Performance” graphics card is the DG2-384EU GPU and its price will be around $650. This GPU is expected to have 3,072 shading units and 8-12GB of GDDR6 memory, which would make it a competitor against the Radeon RX 6600 and Nvidia RTX 3060 series.
These prices are rough estimations and we could see $50–$100 lower or higher prices given the fact that we’re still months away from Arc’s release.
To find out more, we’ll have to wait for the official launch.
