Intel Launches Arc A570M and A530M Mobile Graphics

Intel discreetly unveiled its newest members of the Arc A-Series lineup, namely the A570M and A530M. These processors boast either 16 or 12 Xe-Cores, respectively. Notably, Intel chose not to make a formal announcement about the release, but both chips were discreetly included in the latest GPU driver.

Although there are still some details lacking, like memory specifications not being available on the Intel website, the company did disclose crucial information about the GPU configuration, clocks, and TDP. The A570M, featuring 16 Xe-Cores, shares the same configuration as the current A550M, but it runs at a higher GPU clock of 1.3 GHz (400 MHz faster). However, this enhancement results in a higher TDP, which has increased by 15W, now ranging from 75W to 95W TGP.

Conversely, the A530M is a fresh configuration comprising 12 Xe-Cores (1536 shaders) and operates at a GPU clock of 1.3 GHz. It is anticipated to provide entry-level performance and will be available with a TGP configuration ranging from 65W to 95W.

Contrary to expectations based on a leaked roadmap indicating 150W SKUs in Q3, both the A570M and A530M from Intel do not consume that much power. On the other hand, rumors about Alchemist+ hinted at a possible 75W-100W TGP part with the ACM+G20 chip around this timeframe. It remains uncertain whether these SKUs utilize the updated Alchemist architecture or the long-rumored third ACM-G12 GPU mentioned in previous leaks.

The Arc A-Series GPU family has expanded to include seven models with the introduction of these two additions. This diverse lineup is quite remarkable for a newcomer in the discrete graphics market, surpassing both AMD’s RX 7000 series (four SKUs) and NVIDIA’s RTX 40 series (five SKUs) mobile series in terms of variety.

Intel indicated that both SKUs were launched in “Q3’23,” suggesting that these mobile graphics might already be accessible to certain OEMs. However, the official driver release occurred only today.
