when Intel Launch of the Arc brand Last year, its high-performance consumer graphics products showcased what this line of GPUs can do with video games. However, the company’s latest Arc GPUs aren’t for gaming at all: they’re designed for desktop and mobile workstations running applications like Adobe Premiere Pro, Handbrake, and DaVinci Resolve Studio.Intel has roll out its Arc Pro Lineup There are three models, starting with the Arc Pro A40 in a “mini single-slot form factor”. The Arc Pro A50 goes a step further with a larger dual-slot form factor, while the A30M is made for laptops.
All three models offer built-in ray tracing and machine learning capabilities, but their key specs differ slightly from each other. For example, the A40 and A30M have 3.50 teraflops of graphics power, while the A50 has 4.80 teraflops. Both desktop models come with 6GB of memory, while the laptop model comes with 4GB. Additionally, all models support AV1 hardware encoding acceleration, which Intel calls an industry first. The new GPU also features four mini DisplayPorts for multi-screen setups, and can support two 8K monitors with a refresh rate of 60Hz, one 5K 240Hz monitor, two 5K 120Hz monitors, or four 60Hz 4K monitors.
Intel hasn’t disclosed prices for these new discrete GPUs for workstations, but it says they’ll be available “from leading mobile and desktop ecosystem partners” starting later this year.
