Intel is ready to roll out the first batch of graphics processing units (GPUs) under the Arc brand. The US chipmaker said the Arc 3-Series A350M and A370M GPUs were now available for laptops. The GPUs support DirectX 12 and have dedicated ray-tracing hardware.
The low-power GPUs are meant for portable devices and consume around twice the power compared to Intel's integrated Xe graphics. The A350M has 6 Xe cores, 6 dedicated ray-tracing units, a clock speed of 1150 MHz with 4GB of GDDR6 VRAM. It consumes between 25-35W of power.
The A370M has two more Xe cores, eight dedicated ray-tracing units, clock speed of 1550 MHz and 4GB of DDR6 VRAM with the power consumption ranging between 35-50W.
