Information about Intel graphics cards codenamed Arctic Sound for data centers has long been present on profile resources.These cards were quietly announced in late March and should be available sometime in the third quarter of this year.ServeTheHome staff was lucky enough to see these cards at the Intel Vision event last week.Advertisement The Intel Arctic Sound data center family includes two boards: the ATS-M75 and ATS-M150.The numbers in the model names correspond to their maximum graphics processing power (TGP).According to ServeTheHome, the low-profile ATS-M75 includes two ACM-G10 GPUs with eight processing units, while the full-size ATS-M150 features the larger ACM-G11 GPU with 32 processing units. Although the Intel Arctic Sound-M graphics cards are positioned as data center GPUs, they can easily be used for video editing and playback, games and other similar applications, but not for compute-intensive workloads. Intel will offer its computing GPUs, codenamed Ponte Vecchio, specifically designed for highly parallel computing workloads and using the corresponding Xe-HPC microarchitecture.Ponte Vecchio chips are designed for artificial intelligence and high-performance computing applications that require higher performance than Intel Arctic Sound can provide. One of the advantages of Intel's Arc Alchemist GPUs, and thus Arctic Sound, over competing products is the hardware support for AV1 encoding.Naturally, Intel will actively promote this feature in combination with the relatively low power consumption of these boards.The post is rewardedThis material was written by a site visitor, and it is rewarded.
Intel DG2 discrete graphics can challenge AMD and NVIDIA graphics cards for $600
It's been known since last year that Intel will resort to third-party contract manufacturers to accelerate the launch of discrete Xe-HPG gaming-grade graphics solutions. Now, knowledgeable sources say that TSMC will start producing DG2 chips with 7nm technology for Intel this year.

Reuters has been informed through two independent channels that the production of DG2 GPUs will be outsourced to TSMC using an advanced version of 7nm technology. Earlier rumours on the subject often referred in this context to TSMC's so-called 6nm process, which introduces an extra layer of processing using ultra-hard ultraviolet lithography (EUV), but retains all of the developer's toolset suitable for creating 7nm products. According to Reuters, DG2-based graphics solutions will be aimed at the gaming PC market and could be unveiled either late this year or early next year, with Intel's new products competing with gaming graphics cards based on AMD and NVIDIA chips at $400 to $600. The bid, it must be said, is serious, even taking into account the upward trend in gaming graphics card prices in recent years. The last time Intel offered consumer class graphics cards on the retail market was at the end of the last century. To all appearances, in the server segment, the development of Intel GPUs will take a separate path. The company expects to master in-house production of 10nm Arctic Sound (Xe-HP) graphics processors, which will be able to combine four crystals on a single substrate to increase aggregate performance.
