Officiel : ARC desktop repoussé à la fin de l’été 2022 –

This is a communication which has the value of an official statement. Vice President and General Manager of Intel’s Visual Compute Group, Lisa Pearce, spoke in an article about the genesis of ARC boards. She was able to confirm that these had been delayed due to concerns about the pilots. This confirms the various rumors about Intel drivers being problematic and a potential delay factor. On balance, it is almost official that the ARC desktop family has been pushed back to this summer at best.

In this blog post, she confirms that while Intel’s entry-level Arc A3 products will be launched for the end of Q2 2022, they should only be found in China from a few system integrators.

The translation of the post on the official Intel blog:

Question #1: Can you update us on the status of your Intel® Arc™ graphics mobile products?

We’ve worked closely with OEM partners to fully launch Intel Arc graphics mobile designs. The first was Samsung which started with availability in Korea and is expanding globally. We had planned to have wider OEM availability at this point; however, we have had some delays in getting software ready, and with COVID lockdowns impacting global supply chains, OEM designs are not becoming more widely available until this month.

Despite the constraints, our OEM partners have announced laptops with Intel Arc 3 graphics – including Samsung, Lenovo, Acer, HP and Asus – and we are working with our partners to help bring these products to market as soon as possible. Laptops with Intel Arc 5 and Arc 7 graphics will begin to be available in early summer.

Question #2: When are desktop boards with Intel Arc graphics coming?

Unlike laptop designs, desktop systems have a vast array of combinations, including memory, motherboards, and processors. To initially limit some of these variations, we will begin working with system builders and OEMs with specific configurations.

We will first launch our entry-level Intel Arc A-series (A3) desktop products in China through system builders and OEMs in Q2. Retail and retail component sales will also follow soon in China. The proximity of board components and the high demand for dedicated entry-level products make this a natural starting point. Our next step will be to deploy these products globally.

Rollout of the Intel Arc A5 and A7 desktop boards will begin worldwide with OEMs and system integrators later this summer, followed by component sales in global channels.

This step-by-step approach gives us confidence at every stage that we can effectively serve our clientele.
