The race for the best GPU has ever been headed by Nvidia, with AMD coming at a close second. This might change anytime soon as Intel surfaces again with exciting rumors about their new Arc range GPUs. The compact graphic chips have already stirred the discussion way ahead of their launch.
The new Arc lineup is expected to give tough competition to the upcoming Nvidia’s Lovelace design-based 4000 series and AMD’s RDNA3 architecture-based GPUs.
Twitter user @momomo_us listed several unreleased GPU models in Intel beta drivers. It also showed a total of five graphic card models for desktop PC and mobile, both high-end as well as budget-friendly variants, so every user can find something for themselves.
The specifications and build details are undisclosed as of now. But some of the models to launch are A750, A770, A580, A310, and A580.
One should keep in mind that there have also been rumors of up to seven models in the lineup, so we can expect more than the above list.
The driver, named ‘126.96.36.199’ is compatible with the Arc series and other Intel desktop graphics.

While there has been no official statement from Intel yet, the updated firmware could indicate that the Arc series is coming closer to its launch date.
Some sources have implied the A380 model has a tentative July release date. The A580 and A750 models are expected to launch between 15 May and 30 June. But again, this is just speculation.
However, all tech geeks can agree that the Intel Arc Range holds a lot of promise, and for all we know, it could reshape the entire graphics card game in the field.
