  • Release dates and prices have leaked for Intel's upcoming desktop Arc GPUs.
  • According to a report, the A750 and A580 will release by early June 2022, and the A380 is tentatively set for release in July.
  • The sales embargo for Arc desktop GPUs is reportedly between May 15 and June 30, 2022.

Details about Intel's upcoming Arc desktop GPUs have leaked online. A report by Wccftech, citing sources in Taiwan, detailed release date ranges and prices for Intel's new GPUs. The information reportedly came from a call that Intel held with its supply chain members.

Intel will initially launch its A750 and A580 first, followed by the A380 weeks later, according to the report. The A780, the flagship of the lineup, is said to not be on the way with the first wave of GPUs.

The new graphics from Intel support AI-enhanced XeSS Upscaling, XMX-powered AI acceleration, Intel Deep Link Technology, and AV1 codec for game streaming. We'll have to get our hands on them to see how they perform in real-world testing, but the specs and features of the GPUs look impressive.

Wccftech stated that Intel shared a date range for its sales embargo (May 15 to June 30) rather than a specific day.

Here are the details, according to Wccftech:

GPUComparable GPUMSRPExpected Release Date
A750NVIDIA RTX 3060$350End of March - Early June
A580NVIDIA RTX 3050$280End of March - Early June
A380NVIDIA GTX 1650$150Tentatively July

The leaked prices of Intel's new graphics line up favorably with the best GPUs from AMD and NVIDIA. It's important to note that it's difficult or impossible to get a high-end GPU at retail prices these days. If Intel is able to keep costs close to MSRP, it could help the company compete with the likes of AMD and NVIDIA.

Intel officially unveiled its mobile GPUs and gave rough dates for when they'd arrive, but not much was known about desktop models.

  • "If Intel is able to keep costs close to MSRP, it could help the company compete with the likes of Intel and NVIDIA." Replace Intel with AMD, I suspect that's what you meant to say. Cheers.
  • WCCFTech has never been a reliable source. Go look at their older articles. It's all guesswork.
  • "The A780, the flagship of the lineup, is said to not be on the way with the first wave of GPUs." - So, the top end isn't being released between March and June like the chart shows? Editing would be helpful.
