Two types of memory for intel ARC Alchemist GPU depend on whether it is the entry-level or the top of the basket.

At the start of the week, a leak made it possible to take stock of the technical characteristics of Intel’s ARC Alchemist range. The different models of graphics cards to come were dissected there.

16 Gbps GDDR6 from Samsung

Intel will not play the one-upmanship on the video memory side. On the first prices, SKU 4 and SKU 5 (respectively 128 and 96 execution units), it will settle for 4 GB of GDDR6 memory at a speed of 14 Gbps and with a 64-bit interface.

SKU 3, SKU 2, and SKU 1 will integrate faster memory, GDDR6 at 16 Gbps in quantity and on the variable bus: respectively 8 GB on 128-bit bus, 12 GB on 192-bit bus and 16 GB on bus 256-bit. It is always a question of Samsung memories.

Often presented as a competitor to the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti, the most muscular of the ARC Alchemist solutions could have a slight handicap on the video memory side: the NVIDIA card has only 8 GB of GDDR6X on a 256-bit bus, but at 19 Gbps.

There is no explanation for why Samsung altered the status of the memory modules from ‘Mass Production’ to ‘Sampling,’ or why the 18/20/24 Gbps memory is no longer available in the current Samsung product catalog. The Intel ARC Alchemist discrete graphics cards are likely to be released in the first quarter of this year, although no specific date has been set. It’s also unclear if we’ll see the desktop or mobile versions first, which will include both the 128 EU and 512 EU cards.
