The day when we can finally declare that the world of graphics processing cards has ceased to be a duopoly is fast approaching thanks to Intel (or even has already arrived, considering the one and only model that technically has exotic ways to achieve it), with the key questions that continue to occupy us concerning the maker's ability The processors offer relevant performance at truly competitive prices, despite the fact that it joins this race with a big delay. Some recent rumors, which are reinforced in a seemingly official slide, paint a pretty promising picture in terms of the market we know today.
The information on the slide is pretty clear and does not need too much explanation around, as we discover that there will be two main configurations for the DG2 architecture that changed its name to ARC Alchemist recently - and at the top rate the power envelope of about 225 watts should provide direct competition toRadeon RX 6700XT and GeForce RTX 3070, with a declared price range of between $ 400 and $ 500, which Intel itself is apparently aiming for. At the bottom of this configuration is a 175 watt power envelope that will be enough to compete withRadeon RX 6600XT and inRadeon RX 6500XT (which has not been announced yet) on the one hand and inGeForce RTX 3060 Ti andGeForce RTX 3060 on the other hand, with recommended prices starting at $ 300.
Another configuration with a modest power envelope of only 75 watts seems to be developed to meet recommended prices starting at only $ 100 (in which there is currently no modern solution not at NVIDIA And not at AMD), through a recommended price of $ 160 for the GeForce GTX 1650 Super to the bottom tick of theRadeon RX 5600 XT which is characterized by a much larger power envelope and priced at $ 280. The data in the presentation indicate that it is at least a month and a half old, and it is also a bit hard to believe that Intel will indeed be able to compete with dual-power cards using its economical DG2 configuration, but the slide still provides us with many valuable thought points in analyzing and understanding the situation. Tomorrow's market.
At any other time, comparing future graphics cards to mid-priced video cards nearly a year ago would have raised a lot of eyebrows and a host of astonishing responses - but on days when those graphics are very hard to come by and sometimes sold for twice their recommended value, Intel entered the market Becomes a very significant potential. Assuming that the market situation does not change drastically until the moment Intel and its partners start landing packages on store shelves around the world, this offer could bring all mid-range models closer to their recommended level and do good to consumers who just want better value for money - even if Eventually they will decide to prefer theRadeon OrGeForce On the face of theARC.
Agree with us, or think the cautious approach of Intel Will you ruin her plans and aspirations? Come share with everyone in the comments.
