Finally, there is an update on the arrival of the new Intel desktop graphics cards. Instead of releasing the SKUs all at once as is customary, Intel appears to be planning a phased rollout. This time, Intel intends to roll out its range gradually from August 5th to September 29.
Igor Wallosseka reputable source who could learn specific details about Intel’s internal discussions on the launch, provided the information for the report.
“Intel is said to have now internally decided on a narrower time frame. If they’re going to stick to the current timeframe, the range that’s being colocated to me now is between August 5th, 2022, and September 29, 2022 -Igor Wallossek.
We previously discussed that Intel had been entirely lacking in terms of keeping their promises and expectations as the launch date kept getting delayed, even though Intel secretly launched an Intel ARC A380 graphic card mode in China for $153which was reported performing 20% better than AMD’s budgeted model AMD Radeon 6400.
Additionally, Intel is internally producing finished cards that will be quickly made available for reporting to selected media personnel. However, it is anticipated that most of these evaluations will be written for marketing purposes to create hype and keep the audience interested as the launch dates approach.
Igor does, however, anticipate that once the graphics cards are offered for sale to the general public, we will be able to read unbiased reviews that will enable us to determine whether or not the Intel ARC is living up to expectations.
Additionally, Intel made it very clear during a Q&A session with PC Gamer that they will only make an official announcement about Intel ARC cards after they are prepared to ship to customers.
A significant chunk of the community is still undecided about the upcoming lineup because there are now many conflicting opinions, and only time will tell whether Intel will be able to deliver.
