The first leak of a mobile Intel Arc GPU stands before us. The Geekbench 5 database was recently updated with results for an unreleased laptop using the upcoming ‘Alchemist’ mobile GPU with 512 execution units (EUs) paired with a Core i7-11800H.
The benchmark listing, spotted by @Benchleaks, identifies the GPU simply as “Intel Xe Graphics”, but the specifications show that the GPU features 512 EUs and a clock speed of 1800MHz.

Intel is still working on these GPUs, so benchmark scores are not final. There is still plenty of work to be done between now and early 2022, which is when these GPUs are scheduled to launch. For now, this particular Intel Arc GPU scored 34,360 points in the OpenCL test, which is 85 percent faster than the Intel Arc 256 EU GPU, although this was tested using a different CPU.
Like the desktop models, Intel is expected to release the mobile GPUs in Q1 2022. By then, Intel Alder Lake mobile CPUs should also be available to create the first Intel CPU+GPU configurations.
KitGuru says: We are still a few months from seeing the first Intel GPUs hitting the shelves, so there is still work to be done, particularly on the driver side. With that in mind, we shouldn’t put too much stock in these early scores.
