The company revealed the plans of its next-gen Arc Battlemage for 2023-2024, and then its next-next-gen Arc Celestial for 2024+. Intel's first-gen Arc Alchemist GPU will be offered in multiple SKUs that will handle the Entry, Mainstream, Performance, and Enthusiast segments.

Intel's next-gen Arc Battlemage will handle everything and then reach the new Ultra Enthusiast segment, while in 2024 and beyond we'll have Arc Celestial that will burst through that Ultra Enthusiast.

  • But then I have a question: what is an Ultra Enthusiast? Well, I would consider myself one. I haven't gamed on anything less than 120FPS for over 20 years now, and I'm currently sitting in front of a 77-inch LG 4K 120Hz OLED TV for my workstation/gaming system. I game at 4K 120FPS, and would not just presume -- I expect -- that Intel means 4K 120FPS+ (and even 8K 60FPS or 120FPS with XeSS at that point) for an "Ultra Enthusiast".
