Intel Announces Arc Pro A60 and A60M GPUs with Twice the Memory Bandwidth and Ray Tracing Units

Intel’s family of Arc Pro A-series professional GPUs is expanding today with the introduction of the Arc Pro A60 and Arc Pro A60M. Featuring up to 12 GB of VRAM and support for four displays with HDR and Dolby Vision support, the Arc Pro A60 will be available from Intel’s authorized distributors in the coming weeks, while the Arc Pro A60M, for mobile systems, will be available from OEM partners in the coming months. Intel has also announced that additional workstation designs with the Arc Pro A40 are now available from HP, with Dell and Lenovo options coming later in Q3 2023.

From an Intel press release:

Intel Arc Pro A-series graphics offer a new option to the workstation GPU space. Compared to existing Intel Arc Pro products, the Intel Arc Pro A60 and A60M offer double the number of PCIe lanes with 16, twice the memory bandwidth at 384 gigabytes per second, twice the dedicated AI Xe Matrix Extensions (XMX) engines with 256, and twice the number of ray tracing units with 16. They also feature full media encode and decode support, including AV1. These make Intel Arc Pro GPUs ideal for computer-aided design and modeling (CAD/CAM), AI inferencing tasks and media processing in dedicated business environments.

Intel Arc Pro GPUs are backed by quarterly driver releases for regular performance optimizations and ISV-certified1 by leading workstation applications used within the architecture, engineering and construction, and design and manufacturing industries, such as:

  • Autodesk 3ds Max
  • Autodesk AutoCAD
  • Autodesk Fusion 360
  • Autodesk Inventor
  • Autodesk Maya
  • Bentley MicroStation
  • Dassault Systèmes SOLIDWORKS
  • Nemetscheck VectorWorks
  • PTC Creo
  • Siemens NX
  • Siemens Solid Edge

Intel’s workstation GPUs are also optimized for media and entertainment applications like Blender and run rendering and ray tracing libraries in the Intel oneAPI Rendering Toolkit to enable the creation of high-performance, high-fidelity visual experiences at scale.
