The Arc A40 Pro, Intel''s next Arc Pro series graphics card, has been sighted at the South Korean National Radio Research Agency (NRR) based on information provided by the agency. From the data, it proceeds to the first sighting of Intel''s upcoming workstation desktop GPU that will add to the Arc Alchemist family.
On the South Korean certification site, the first signs of the Intel Arc A40 Pro desktop workstation GPU are visible.
While it has been reported earlier this month that Intel''s Arc Pro series GPUs, including the A30M and A40M Pro graphics cards, are still available, in fact, this discovery hints at the A40 Pro desktop workstation GPU.
Intel has not issued official announcements of a workstation variant or any A4 GPU to be added to the company''s gaming integrated graphics series. Intel stated that the A40M GPU would be similar to the NVIDIA GeForce A1000 GPU, an entry-level workstation graphics processor.
The A40 Pro desktop workstation GPU is expected to be a thinner Arc GPU, aimed at intermediate and advanced PCs. The GPU will measure 156mm2, much smaller than the AMD Navi 24 GPU, which is expected to reach 107mm2.
The SKU will be equipped with 96 EUs or 768 cores and a 4 GB GDDR6 memory across a 64-bit bus interface. The chip is expected to have a clock speed of 2.5 GHz and a sub 75 Watt power consumption, thus we will be looking at connector-less graphics cards for the entry-level segment.
The timeframe that we will begin to see the desktop workstation Arc GPUs during the third quarter of this year, although Intel has deliberately delayed every Arc launch at the last second. Two examples of this activity from Intel were the A350M mobile GPU which was launched at the end of this year, and the A380 desktop gaming GPU that was launched this week. If the same happens with the new A40 Pro series, it is likely that the release will fall at the end of September 2022.
