Intel Arc A350M, A370M Discrete Gaming GPU for Thin and Lightweight Laptops Announced, Desktop GPU Coming Later This Year

After years of teasing and building, Intel finally launched its first discrete Intel Arc GPU. Two A series models, the Arc A350M and Arc A370M will soon be available in thin and light laptops, with pre -orders for models from several leading manufacturers including Acer, Asus, Dell, HP, Lenovo, MSI, Samsung starting as early as today. The more powerful Arc 5 and Arc 7 GPU models for high -end gaming laptops will follow these Arc 3 GPUs later this year. Details of the upcoming desktop GPU will also be announced later in 2022.

All laptops with Intel Arc GPUs announced so far feature Intel 12ke Gen ‘Alder Lake’ portable CPUs, and most are thin and lightweight models worthy of the Intel Evo badge. Intel has announced that OEMs will be able to leverage its ‘Deep Link’ technology to dynamically balance CPUs and GPUs in the heat and power envelope of laptops to optimize performance for different types of workloads. Arc GPUs and ‘Alder Lake’ CPUs with integrated graphics capabilities can also work together to speed up video encoding and certain AI workloads, thanks to their shared Xe architecture.

DirectX 12, variable rate shading and beam detection are supported across the line, though Intel’s XeSS image enhancement technology will not be rolled out with this first set of chips. The company also expressed its support for hardware AV1 video encoding and the latest HDMI and DisplayPort standards today.

Intel’s new Arc Control software will serve as a player hub with community features, streaming and camera controls, performance profiles as well as in -game events and rewards. The company is also committed to monthly drive updates and a close working relationship with game developers, including zero-day accommodations for newly released titles.

Intel Arc A-series GPU model specifications

The company promises performance over 60fps at 1080p in a variety of popular games with the Arc A370M. The workload of creators should also see some benefits.

The two new GPUs announced so far are based on the HPG or High Performance Gaming level of the Intel Xe architecture arrangement. Intel has previously announced that the first generation of its discrete consumer GPUs will be codenamed Alchemist, with Battlemage, Celestial and Druid already planned for years to come. After hiring former AMD graphics chief Raja Koduri in 2017 to spearhead development, Intel initially announced a 2020 target to venture into the high -end discrete gaming GPU segment. The Xe architecture scales from an integrated GPU for mobile devices to a cluster of data center supercomputers.

While the Arc A350M and A370M feature six and eight Xe cores respectively, the upcoming Arc A550M, A730M and A770M have also been announced with 16, 24, and 32 Xe cores respectively. Each Xe core has 16 vector engines for graphics shading, 16 matrix engines for AI workloads, 192kb cache. All GPU models have the same number of beam detection cores. displays GDDR6 graphics memory.

The Arc A350M has a power rating of 25-35W while the A370M has a 35-50W rating. That increases to 120-150W with the highest Arc 7 GPU.

Intel also announced that 14 games have so far been confirmed to support XeSS later this year. These include Shadow of the Tomb Raider, GRID Legends, Death Stranding, Hitman III and Anvil.
