Intel’s new Arc Alchemist graphics cards, which were originally scheduled for release in the first quarter of 2022, have been delayed. This gives Intel more time to tweak drivers and produce GPUs that can meet demand. Now the upcoming flagship with the DG-512 GPU has been tested in Geekbench’s OpenCL benchmark and doesn’t live up to expectations.
Information about Intel’s new Arc Alchemist graphics cards is becoming increasingly dense. An Xe graphics card with a DG2-512 GPU has now been spotted in Geekbench’s OpenCL test. Even if the naming isn’t definitive, the 512 compute unit tested graphics card is said to be the upcoming flagship card of the Arc Alchemist series. In testing, the graphics card may have been tested at Intel or a board partner with the Coffee Lake system.

The Core i5-9600K is an older processor that has only six cores, does not support interlacing and can only deliver PCI-E 3.0. The DG2-512 GPU ran at 2.4GHz in the test and read 12.7GB of graphics memory. He scored 85.448 on Geekbench’s OpelCL test. This score places the GPU directly between the Geforce RTX 2060 Super with about 85,100 points and the Geforce RTX 2070 with 85,700 points. The announced opponents in the form of the Geforce RTX 3070 and RTX 3070 Ti are in a different field with 135,000 and 146,000 points respectively.
However, this should not mean anything, since the OpenCL standards are not a direct comparison of gaming performance and certainly not the most important component of Intel’s specifications. The flagship, like the smaller Arc Alchemist subsidiaries, should be released in the second quarter of 2022. Until then, Intel still had time to optimize the card engines and at the same time produce enough GPUs in stock to meet demand.
