Intel’s New Arc GPU Shown at Esports Tournament, But Performance Remains a Mystery

From June 3-5, the DreamHack gaming expo took place in Dallas, Texas, hosting the Intel Extreme Masters, Intel’s esports league. After all the cosplay competitions, esports showdowns, and merchandise stores, Intel was running a booth dedicated to their new Arc GPUs, and brought our first real look at the Arc Alchemist external GPU.

While the physical design of the graphics card was revealed in an Intel teaser, this is the first time the GPU has been physically presented. We don’t know exactly which model it is, although our best guess is the Arc 7770 model. It’s a dual fan card powered by an 8-pin and 6-pin PCIe connector and presumably offers both DisplayPort and HDMI video outputs.
