New Intel Arc Alchemist GPU leak could be bad news for Nvidia

Another leak around Intel’s incoming Arc gaming graphics cards shows again that the flagship GPU could be pitched against the Nvidia RTX 3070 in terms of its expected power level.

To be precise, this is a leaked slide which came from the Baidu forums as highlighted by VideoCardz, and we have to be pretty skeptical about whether it’s genuine – though it does line up with previous indications we’ve heard from the rumor mill, and appears to reinforce a leak courtesy of Greymon which popped up last week on Twitter.

The top Alchemist GPU – and note that this name, or indeed the Arc brand, aren’t used here, but rather the older DG2 codename – is shown as lining up in performance terms with both the RTX 3070 and 3060 / 3060 Ti for the Nvidia side of the equation. With AMD, it’s shown as roughly equivalent to the RX 6700 XT and 6600 XT. The Intel GPU offers a TDP of 175W to 225W according to the slide.

Interestingly, there are only two different flavors of the DG2 high-end gaming graphics cards shown here, the flagship alongside an affordable 75W model which will be pitched at a performance level of something like Nvidia’s GTX 1650 Super (again, apply plentiful salt).
