Intel Arc (Alchemist) will compete with AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT and Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070

A preliminary calculation based on the preliminary specifications of the top-end GPU of the upcoming Intel Arc 3D card based on the Xe-HPG architecture showed that this GPU will be able to compete with the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti. However, according to new data, Intel is considering the DG2 GeForce RTX 3070 and Radeon RX 6700 XT as competitors. These are models of a confident average level at the moment, but a little simpler.

Why is the current moment clause important? The fact is that DG2 will only be released early next year. More precisely, at the beginning of the year it is announced, and when the sales start is unknown. Nvidia has already released GeForce RTX 3070 Ti and GeForce RTX 3080 Ti, and at the beginning of next year 3D cards of the Super line are promised - these can be GeForce RTX 3070 Super, RTX 3080 Super, and RTX 3090 Super. That is, the average level for at least Nvidia video cards will move up. It's hard to say something about AMD, but it can also announce new, more powerful models in January.

It is important to note something else: the Alchemist family will have four models of graphics processors, and only the top one has 4096 shaders, 512 execution units, 16 GB of memory, and a 256-bit memory bus. The other three GPUs will be significantly simpler and will already compete with the entry-level GPUs from Nvidia and AMD.

In general, at the moment DG2, recorded in competitors GeForce RTX 3070 and Radeon RX 6700 XT, looks attractive, but what will happen at the time of release and how much its performance in games will be enough at the time of the start of sales is still a question.
