    The Arc brand will cover hardware, software and services, and will span multiple hardware generations, with the first generation, based on the Xe HPG microarchitecture, code-named Alchemist (formerly known as DG2).

    Intel also revealed the code names of future generations under the Arc brand: Battlemage, Celestial and Druid.

This new Arc brand will cover both the hardware and software powering Intel’s high-end discrete GPUs, as well as multiple hardware generations. The first of those, known previously as DG2, is expected to arrive in the form of codename “Alchemist” in Q1 2022.

    Intel’s Arc-based Alchemist GPUs will be available in both desktops and notebooks in early 2022, with Intel seemingly aiming to compete against both AMD and Nvidia here. While we still don’t know much about the performance of the first Alchemist GPUs, Intel published a teaser video today that showed prototype silicon powering PUBG, Psychonauts 2, Metro Exodus, and more.

    Intel’s Arc GPUs will be capable of mesh shading, variable rate shading, video upscaling, and real-time ray tracing. Most importantly, Intel is also promising AI-accelerated super sampling, which sounds like Intel has its own competitor to Nvidia’s Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS) technology. AMD launched its own FidelityFX Super Resolution (FSR) answer to DLSS in June, but it’s only using a spatial upscaling technique rather than AI-based temporal upscaling. The aim of all these technologies is to upscale games from a lower resolution to provide smoother frame rates without a noticeable compromise in image quality.

    So far, Intel has launched its first Iris Xe graphics cards, codenamed “DG1,” that use the company’s Xe LP architecture. These lower-power cards were mainly designed for pre-built workstations, instead of dedicated gaming rigs. Intel’s upcoming Arc GPUs will be based on the company’s Xe-HPG microarchitecture, which is a combination of the work Intel has been putting into its Xe-LP, HP, and HPC microarchitectures.

    Intel is also using dedicated Xe-cores in its upcoming GPUs to power its XeSS technology, with dedicated Xe Matrix eXtensions (XMX) matrix engines inside to offer hardware-accelerated AI processing.

    Similar to DLSS, XeSS works by using machine learning to rebuild detail from nearby pixels and previous frames, with Intel promising approximately two times performance improvements. AMD’s FidelityFX Super Resolution, on the other hand, takes a different track, using spatial upscaling techniques instead of the AI-based reconstruction methods used by Intel and Nvidia.

    Additionally, Intel promises that XeSS won’t just be limited to products with XMX. It plans to offer XeSS on a wide range of hardware in the future — including integrated graphics — with a version that supports the DP4a instruction set, too. [...]

    Intel also confirmed that Alchemist will offer full support for DirectX 12 Ultimate, along with hardware-based ray tracing with support for both DirectX Raytracing (DXR) and Vulkan Ray Tracing. Additionally, the company also announced that Unreal Engine 5 is already working on its Alchemist SoCs. [...]

    Intel ARC e binevenit (desi pe mine unul, care am folosit Intel ARK de cand ma stiu, ma debusoleaza numele). Dar din cate vad, se bazeaza mai mult pe upscale decat pe raw power. Nu e rau, dar parca a venit momentul sa vedem si GPU-uri mai "slabute" capabile sa randeze 4K nativ.
