While everyone eagerly awaits real gaming graphics cards from Intel’s Arc line, the company is not in a hurry. Today, Intel has added two new discrete models to its range of video cards – Arc Pro A40 & Arc Pro A50. They are intended for professional use, as the name implies. The product’s characteristics are not very impressive, so they will only be used for professional purposes.
Each model has 6GB of GDDR6 RAM and supports real-time ray tracing, AV1 hardware encoding, and four Mini DP 1.4 ports. Arc Pro A40 consumes 50 W at its peak, while Arc Pro A50 consumes 75 W. Arc Pro A50 uses dual slots and has a peak of 3.5 TFLOPS. The second case, Arc Pro A50, consumes 4.8 TFLOPS. The performance of the Radeon HD 6970, released at the end of 2010, is 2.7 TFLOPS.
The Intel Arc Pro A30M mobile CPU is presented with discrete solutions. It is similar to the Arc Pro A40 but has less memory (4 GB GDDR) and lower power consumption (35 to 50 watts). These new Intel GPUs will be available in off-the-shelf products later this year.
