What you need to know

  • Intel will launch its first Arc GPU on March 30, 2022.
  • The Intel Arc A370M promises up to double the graphics performance of integrated graphics in a similar form factor.
  • A launch event for the new GPU will be held on March 30 at 8 AM PT.

Intel's new Arc GPUs promise to deliver significantly better performance than their predecessors. In a new post, Intel Vice President and General Manager Lisa Pearce shared details about the first Arc GPU that will launch, the Intel Arc A370M. The GPU will start shipping on March 30, 2022. On that same day, Intel will hold a launch event for the new hardware.

The Intel Arc A370M, and all of the Intel Arc A-series GPUs, will use Intel Deep Link, XeSS, and other technologies that optimize performance while balancing against battery life. These features allow the new graphics components to deliver better performance while still meeting battery life standards for Intel Evo. Pearce promises that the Arc A370M will deliver up to double the performance of integrated graphics in a similar form factor.

The first Intel Arc GPU is a mobile version of the new graphics technology. Between being built for mobile and meeting Intel Evo standards, the A370M won't showcase the high end of the new lineup when it comes to performance. More powerful Arc GPUs are set to arrive in the future, including graphics for notebooks and desktops.

At the end of her post, Pearce discussed Project Endgame, Intel's often-teased but rarely detailed technology.

"Project Endgame is a unified services layer that harnesses computing resources everywhere – cloud, edge, and your home, to improve your gaming, and non-gaming, PC experiences," explained Pearce. "With Project Endgame, we can untether our users from their local hardware specs. Project Endgame is paving the roads for the next decade of real-time GPU experiences for Intel, with the goal of petaflops of compute accessible at a few millisecond latency, and starting in Q2 of this year we will take our first public steps."
