The company already ships Arc GPUs to device makers.
At CES 2022, Intel confirmed that its Arc Alchemist GPUs will be released later this year. According to the company's announcement, it has already started shipping its first-gen Alchemist GPUs to OEM customers for desktop and laptop systems, including Acer, ASUS, Clevo, Dell, Gigabyte, Haier, HP, Lenovo, Samsung, MSI, and NEC.
The upcoming GPUs are said to feature a variety of gaming features, including hardware-accelerated ray tracing and Intel's Xe Super Sampling (XeSS).
Intel has also confirmed previously rumored reports of Death Stranding Director's Cut coming to PC. The upcoming port will come with XeSS, so it is no surprise the company had decided to bundle these two announcements together.
"Intel marked a new era in the discrete graphics market by announcing the shipment of Intel Arc graphics (codename Alchemist) to OEM customers," comments Intel. "Intel Arc is the brand for Intel's upcoming consumer high-performance graphics product and delivers the new choice to the industry, including many all-Intel discrete graphics platforms."
