- Increased Memory Bandwidth: These GPUs feature twice the memory bandwidth at 384 gigabytes per second, ensuring faster data processing.
- Advanced AI Capabilities: With twice the dedicated AI Xe Matrix Extensions (XMX) engines with 256, the Intel Arc Pro GPUs excel in AI inferencing tasks.
- Enhanced Ray Tracing: The number of ray tracing units has also doubled to 16, enabling realistic graphics and visual effects.
- Full Media Encode and Decode Support: The Intel Arc Pro GPUs include comprehensive media encode and decode support, including AV1, ensuring seamless media processing.
Ideal for Professional Work Environments
The powerful features of Intel Arc Pro GPUs make them well-suited for various tasks in dedicated business environments. They excel in computer-aided design and modeling (CAD/CAM), AI inferencing, and media processing. Their performance and efficiency contribute to improved workflows and productivity.
Support for Industry-Leading Applications
Intel Arc Pro GPUs receive performance-enhancing drivers every quarter. They also meet the ISV standards of the best workstation applications for different fields such as manufacturing, design, and engineering.
Some notable examples include Autodesk 3ds Max, AutoCAD, Fusion 360, Inventor, Maya, Bentley MicroStation, SOLIDWORKS by Dassault Systèmes, VectorWorks by Nemetscheck, PTC Creo, Siemens NX, and Siemens Solid Edge.
Optimized for Media and Entertainment
In addition to workstation applications, Intel’s GPUs are optimized for media and entertainment software, including Blender. They can effectively run rendering and ray tracing libraries in the Intel oneAPI Rendering Toolkit, enabling the creation of visually stunning and high-performance experiences at scale.
The Intel NUC 13 Extreme SFF (small form factor) PCs, which have 125W unlocked 13th Gen Intel Core processors, are also compatible with the Intel Arc Pro GPU family.
The Intel Arc Pro A60 GPU for desktop workstations will be available soon through authorized distributors, while the Intel Arc Pro A60M GPU for mobile systems will be available in the upcoming months through OEM partners. Intel Arc Pro desktop products come with a three-year limited warranty.
On the announcement of the latest Arc Pro A60 and A60M Graphics, Intel, said:
The Intel Arc Pro A60 GPU combines ray tracing hardware, graphics acceleration, and machine learning capabilities, delivering smooth viewports, cutting-edge visual technologies, and seamless content creation in a compact single slot design.
