Apparently, Intel intends to start selling its high-quality Arc Alchemist graphics cards for desktops sometime in the third quarter, but wants to officially introduce some members of the Alchemist family a little earlier. At least that’s true, if the new rumor from Taiwan is correct. Intel reportedly decided that the broad media coverage of Computex was a promotional resource too good to miss, so it is claimed that the mid-range and high-performance Arc Alchemist GPUs will be unveiled in late May or early in June.

Attracting attention

According to a report by WccfTech citing sources in Taiwan, Intel plans to introduce its discrete graphics cards Arc Alchemist A750, A580 and A380 for desktops in late May or early June. The Arc Alchemist A750 and A580 are expected to be available during their official launch. In contrast, Intel’s initial A380 could be announced at a later date and released in July if the information turns out to be accurate. Meanwhile, the flagship Arc Alchemist A780 will be available even later, so expect it sometime in the third quarter, which ends on September 31st.

The release of new Arc Alchemist GPUs and cards in or around the Computex timeframe means that they will receive very wide media coverage. Add-on board manufacturers (AIBs) will present them at their booths, talk about their competitive advantages, and demonstrate various Intel-approved demonstrations and / or performance metrics. All this will inevitably draw the attention of the crowd to the new graphics cards with a blue badge on them.

Drawing attention to primary, mid-range and entry-level motherboards is important to Intel due to the late arrival of its flagship Arc Alchemist A780 GPU. However, without the halo effect created by the highest GPU, it is vital to properly position the cheaper offerings and show them in a good light compared to their direct rivals.
