Details surrounding Intel’s initial volley of Arc Alchemist desktop graphics cards have leaked. According to Wccftech’s sources, there will be three models at launch: the A750, A580, and A380. The A750 will purportedly be as powerful as NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 3060 and cost $350, $21 higher than the MSRP that green team had set for its corresponding mid-range Ampere model. Both the A750 and A580 are expected to release by the end of May or early June, while the A380 will be released later in July. The sales embargo is said to end somewhere within May 16 to June 30.

GPUComparable GPUMSRPExpected Release Date
A750RTX 3060$350End of May – Early June
A580RTX 3050$280End of May – Early June
A380GTX 1650$150Tentatively July

The Intel mid-range performance card is the Intel ARC A750 graphics card and will be comparable to the RTX 3060 in performance. Intel also told its partners that drivers are improving rapidly and they should expect to see continuous improvement in performance after launch (AMD FineWine anyone?). The A750 will have an MSRP of $350. NVIDIA’s RTX 3060 has an MSRP of $330 but is currently retailing between $479 to $599 on Newegg. If Intel can enforce that MSRP, it would be a pretty sweet deal!
