This has been a long road for all of you. While there have been delays with the eventual launch of Intel Arc graphics for desktop, we want to be clear that this launch is getting closer.

Intel has started the ramp toward the full desktop launch, which you can see in recent content posted to our new Intel Arc News site, recent tech press interviews with Ryan Shrout and Tom Peterson, and a surprise reveal of the Intel Arc Gaming Truck.

All of us are very excited to finally deliver on the Xe HPG Scavenger Hunt prizes this summer as the product is starting to come together. Below are photos of the Intel Arc A750 Graphics Card arriving to Intel offices with packaging ready for final testing before sampling with press.

Bottom line, the launch of the Intel Arc A7 series desktop products and the prizes intended for this contest are now in sight!

Intel has also confirmed that the Xe-HPG Scavenger Hunt winners will be receiving an Arc A770 16 GB graphics card as the "Premium" prize and the Arc A750 8 GB graphics card as the 'Performance" prize. The winners can expect their prizes close to the sampling date which should be a few weeks from now.

Intel Arc A770 Graphics Card Specifications

The Intel Arc 7 lineup is going to utilize the flagship ACM-G10 GPU and we already know about the mobility variants which include the Arc A770M and the Arc A730M. Similarly, the Arc A770 is one of the top-end variants for desktop PCs that is equipped with the full ACM-G10 configuration, utilizing 32 Xe-Cores for 4096 ALUs, and 32 ray tracing units.

In terms of clocks, the GPU should operate at a peak boost of 2.4 GHz which is always going to be higher than its advertised engine clock speed. At 2400 MHz, the GPU should be able to deliver close to 20 TFLOPs of FP32 horsepower. The card comes with a TGP of around 225W. The graphics card is expected to be sandwiched between the RTX 3060 Ti and RTX 3070 in terms of performance.

Intel Arc A750 Graphics Card Specifications

The specs for the Intel Arc A750 Limited Edition graphics card include a cut-down ACM-G10 GPU with 448 EUs, 3584 ALUs, and 8 GB of GDDR6 memory running across a 256-bit bus at 16 Gbps, and a TGP around 200W. The graphics card has been shown to be up to 17% faster than the NVIDIA RTX 3060 in modern titles.

Both graphics cards are powered by an 8+6 connector configuration which means a maximum board power of 300W (150W+75W from connectors & 75W power from the PCIe interface). It is likely that the Limited Edition may come in both A770 and A750 variants. It will come with three DisplayPort connectors and a single HDMI connection. Intel has confirmed that the ARC Alchemist graphics card will support the newest DisplayPort 2.0 & HDMI 2.1 interfaces.

Both the Intel Arc A750 & A750 graphics cards are expected to launch later this summer with pricing around the $299-$399 US market range.
