Currently, Intel hasn’t given a concrete date where the Intel Arc GPU will release. However, they have confirmed a Q1 2022 release window. Therefore, you should mark your calendars for between January and March 2022, as that’s when the new hardware will launch.

The Intel Arc GPU was announced on August 16, as part of Intel’s “next chapter” of graphical components. The first product in this range is the DG2 GPU, codenamed “Alchemist,” which is the one due to release in Q1 2022. There aren’t release dates for the rest of the range yet. Given the graphical fidelity of these new products, it’s probably likely that they’ll launch later in 2022.

They’ve previously been battling alongside other graphics companies like Nvidia for the most sought-after technology.
