Intel fans who are planning on grabbing one of the company’s upcoming Arc Alchemist desktop graphics cards will have at least seven models to choose from. That’s according to reputable leaker KOMACHI_ENSAKA, who recently tweeted a lineup of numbers alluding to the existence of A310, A350, A380, A580, A750, A780, and A770 models, the latter of which has never been mentioned in previous leaks before but will purportedly feature 8 GB of memory. The A780 is speculated to be Intel’s limited edition Arc Alchemist GPU.

The Arc A770 desktop model with more than 12.7GB of VRAM (so likely the 16GB variant) had appeared 10 days ago in a Geekbench leak. It seemingly confirms that A770 will sport full ACM-G10 GPU with 32 Xe-Cores. What the tweet from Komachi suggests though is that Intel might be planning another part with half of the 16GB VRAM, so 8GB. It would probably make sense if this part kept the 256-bit memory bus.
For now, there is no sign of the 448 Execution Units (28 Xe-Cores) SKU, which did appear in some leaks. One might guess though that A770 8GB or A750 would be good candidates for this configuration, but again, there is no leak that would confirm yet.
Intel has remained quiet regarding the exact date on which enthusiasts will be able to get their hands on its Arc Alchemist desktop products. The teaser video for the Arc A-Series Limited Edition graphics card lists a summer launch, but recent rumors suggest that things may have been delayed until Q3 2022.
