Stemming from last year’s shortages, Nvidia is still having a hard time shipping off their latest drivers to hopeful gamers. A lot of gamers are waiting for their GTX 3080. With the flagship series’ hype still at an al-time high, Nvidia has a firm grasp on the GPU market. Intel, desiring a chunk of that lucrative market, has officially announced the debut of its upcoming GPU, the Intel Arc.
Announced through an official tweet, Intel’s upcoming GPUs will make their debut sometime in the first quarter of 2022. The Arc series will start off with an entry currently codenamed Alchemist. The company included a teaser video including the usual benchmark games available today including PUBG, Subnautica, and Metro Exodus.

The series will sport the industry’s usual slate of feature. However, it will also add in an AI-powered super sampling feature, much like Nvidia’s Deep Learning Super Sampling feature.
Since it’s still just a teaser, Nvidia has not released a lot of technical details about the series yet. However, the company has teased that upcoming generations will have an alphabetical codename. After Alchemist, the others will use Battlemage, Celestial, and Druid. Of course, the series’ official names might end up being different from the codenames.
Prior to the Intel Arc series, Intel never really had a presence in the GPU industry. The company did launch an Iris series but never really competed with gaming GPUs.
