The Intel Arc Alchemist GPUs might be more expensive than we anticipated

Intel is running a Xe Arc Alchemist GPU giveaway in which gamers may win a variety of gifts, the total worth of which is specified by Intel. It’s feasible to calculate up estimated values in US dollars for the likely asking costs of the Xe-HPG cards using some basic arithmetic.

Intel’s high-end gaming graphics cards, due out in the first quarter of 2022, will provide much-needed competition to the GPU market, but how competitive will they be? Well, we just heard something fascinating from the rumour mill about Team Blue’s next video cards’ probable cost.

The grand prize amounts to a value of $900, with the winner getting a ‘premium’ Intel Arc graphics card (flagship), and the first-place prize is $700 approximately, and comes with a ‘performance’ Intel Arc GPU. (There’ll be 100 and 200 winners of each respectively).

The prizes also come with six months of Xbox Game Pass for PC in the case of the top winners, and three months for first-place winners, plus some Intel Arc branded merchandise (to an unspecified value).

So, with the premium flagship GPU, if we knock off $60 for the Xbox Game Pass subscription, that leaves $840, minus what the Intel merchandise might be worth – perhaps $50, or $100? Giving us an estimated price of around $740 to $790 for the card.

Similarly, for the performance Arc graphics card, we start with $700, knock off $30 for the three months of Xbox Game Pass, and then that drops to about $570 to $620 after the merchandise has been accounted for.

So the rough pricing indication is approaching $800 for the flagship, possibly, and around $600 for the performance GPU (about £580, AU$1,070, and about £440, AU$800 respectively, but of course currency conversions in this case are pretty meaningless).

Theoretically, the flagship will be the previously rumored graphics card with 512 EUs (Execution Units), and the performance model might be the one under that, purportedly with 384 EUs, going by previous speculation (though Intel is set to switch to a different naming scheme with Arc cards, abandoning EUs in favor of Xe Cores).
