Intel CEO Says Moore’s Law is Not Dead, Reveals the Price of Arc A770 GPU

Pat Gelsinger referenced a comment made by NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang last week.

In case you missed the news, last week, NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang addressed comments and concerns regarding the costliness of the recently-revealed RTX 4080 and 4090 GPUs, stating that Moore's Law is dead and that the prices of NVIDIA's GPUs are completely justified by their capabilities.

Yesterday, during the Intel Innovation event, Intel CEO Pat Gelsinger referenced these comments before revealing the price and release date of the company's Arc A770 GPU, saying that the aforementioned law is, in fact, not dead but rather "alive and well" and that the company itself will continue being "the steward of Moore's law."

"We are, with gamers, delivering and hearing the complaints of high prices," said the CEO. "You should be frustrated because you are missing out as the gaming community. And today, we're fixing that."

According to Gelsinger's announcement, the company's upcoming Arc A770 GPU will be officially released on October 12, 2022, and will cost $329. The upcoming unit sports 32 Xe-cores, 32 ray-tracing units, 512 XMX engines, 2100MHz frequency, 560GB/s memory bandwidth, and 8/16GB of GDDR6 memory. Intel claims that A770 is the highest-end product from the company's first wave of graphics cards and will compare to or even exceed NVIDIA's RTX 3060 Ti.
