This week Intel revealed information to silence the large number of rumors and qualify the existing leaks, and perhaps the most important news of all is that Ryan Shoutthe head of marketing for Intel’s graphics division, revealed via his Twitter account that the Intel Arc A780 does not existand that it was never planned to launch this model which, according to rumors, would manage to compete with the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070.
“Despite some rumors to the contrary, there is no Intel Arc A780 and there has never been an A780 planned. Let’s end this debate. 🤣,” he said. in your official account from Twitter.
According to existing reports, it has been stated that the GPU Intel Arc A780 was going to use the graphics chip MCA-G1manufactured by TSMC using a manufacturing process of 6nm with a total of 4096 execution units with 16 GB of GDDR6 @ 17.5 Gbps memory and a 256-bit memory interface.
All of this together would give us a graphics card that was intended to compete with the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 and AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT, but in the end we’ll have to settle for the Intel Arc A770.
This morning’s Intel Arc A-Series leak did not mention the Intel Arc A780
Just this morning we saw a slide leaked that indicated the chart family Intel Arc A-seriesthe performance that we can expect from them, and the price range in which it will evolve, so we can deduce that the Intel Arc A770 it will be the company’s high-end, high-end GPU that will compete with the mid-range of its rivalnamely the GeForce RTX-3060Ti by NVIDIA and Radeon RX6650XT by AMD.
Now yes, it is not known if Intel really planned to launch an Arc A780 or not, and that is that the Intel Arc A770 will have a TDP of 225Wwhich is already superior to that of its direct competitors (200W Nvidia; 180W AMD), and even exceeds 5W to GeForce TDP RTX-3070it is therefore possible that with Alchemist they cannot aim higher and it will be necessary to wait battle mage to see graphics that rival the next generation of GPUs from both companies.
