Intel’s Next Generation Graphics Card: Intel Arc Battlemage
Intel, the world’s largest producer of processors for desktop computers, laptops, data centers, servers, and many other applications, has been expanding its presence in various technological markets. Since last year, they have also entered the dedicated graphics card space with their Intel Arc series. Now, it seems that the development of the next generation of graphics cards is well underway.
The first generation, Intel Arc Alchemist, may not compete with AMD and NVIDIA in the high-end segment but it offers an attractive option in the lower price range, delivering good performance. Building on this success, Intel is already working on the next generation, which is rumored to be named Intel Arc Battlemage. Unofficially, the release is expected in the first half of 2024, and it appears that there won’t be any major delays this time.
German journalists from HardwareLuxx had the opportunity to visit Intel’s facility in Malaysia as part of the Intel Tech Tour 2023. While taking photographs was prohibited for obvious reasons, the journalists report that they saw the Intel BMG G10 cores in the Fault Analysis Laboratory. This indicates an advanced stage of product development.
The name „Intel BMG G10” has already surfaced in previous leaks, suggesting that it is a high-performance solution with a TDP below 225 W, primarily aimed at enthusiasts. Although the exact specifications remain unknown, there are rumors of a doubling of the number of Intel Xe cores (up to 64) and the retention of an efficient 256-bit data bus.
The precise release date and pricing of the new Intel graphics cards are still a mystery. However, it is expected that they will not claim the top spot in terms of performance nor be the most expensive options on the market.
