Intel’s top-end Arc Alchemist GPU spotted with 2.4GHz clock speed

With Intel Arc Alchemist desktop graphics cards coming in Q2 2022, we are starting to see a few benchmark entries of the engineering samples hitting the Internet. This was the case in the Geekbench database, where an Intel GPU with 512 EUs was spotted running at 2.4GHz.

According to the Geekbench 5 entry spotted by @Benchleaks, the Intel Arc Alchemist GPU with 512 EUs had 12.7GB of VRAM running at an undisclosed speed (probably 16 or 18Gbps). The remaining system specs include a 6C/6T Intel i5-9600K and 32GB of DDR4-2666 memory.

With an OpenCL score of 85448 points, this engineering sample performed at about the same level as an RTX 2060/2070, far from the rumoured performance targets. However, it's worth mentioning that this is an engineering sample running a benchmark with a not so important framework for gaming. Although we expect to see a higher result once Intel releases the Arc Alchemist desktop GPUs to the public, the OpenCL score shouldn't reflect on the card's gaming capabilities.

Nonetheless, user @326powah (via VideoCardz) created a chart showing the individual results from the Intel GPU, an average RTX 3070 card, and a Radeon RX 6700 XT. In most instances, the Intel GPU scores lower than the other two, but there's also the occasional case where it can stand toe-to-toe with its rivals. In the Gaussian Blur test, the blue team's GPU actually beats the AMD and the Nvidia cards.

KitGuru says: This should be Intel's flagship desktop graphics card, so we'll be keeping an eye out for more benchmarks and leaks over the next couple of months.
