Intel Unveils Arc Pro GPU Products
Today Intel introduced the Intel Arc Pro A-series professional range of graphics processing units (GPUs). The first products are the Intel Arc Pro A30M GPU for mobile form factors and the Intel Arc Pro A40 (single slot) and A50 (dual slot) GPUs for small form factor desktops. They all feature built-in ray tracing hardware, machine learning capabilities and industry-first AV1 hardware encoding acceleration.
Intel Arc Pro A-series graphics are targeting certifications with leading professional software applications within the architecture, engineering and construction, and design and manufacturing industries. Intel Arc Pro GPUs are also optimized for media and entertainment applications like Blender, and run the open source libraries in the Intel® oneAPI Rendering Toolkit, which are widely adopted and integrated in industry-leading rendering tools.
Intel Arc Pro GPUs will be available starting later this year from leading mobile and desktop ecosystem partners.
For developers and content creators attending SIGGRAPH on Aug. 8- 11, demos using Intel Arc Pro systems and Intel oneAPI Rendering Toolkit can be seen at the Intel Booth, #427.
