Intel has added a few new Arc Alchemist GPU PCI IDs inside of its recent Linux drivers, which means we could expect a family of refreshed Arc GPUs on the desktop... maybe.

We've only just had the launch of Intel's new Arc A580 graphics card, the last remaining member of the Arc Alchemist desktop graphics card family that was introduced over a year ago now. As it stands, these are the members of the Arc Alchemist GPU lineup: Arc A770, Arc A750, Arc A580, Arc A380, and finally, the Arc A310. Each of them is powered by the Alchemist GPU architecture -- either the ACM-G10 or ACM-G11 SKUs -- but now Intel has added 5 more Arc Alchemist GPU PCI IDs inside of its new Arc GPU drivers for Linux.

Phoronix found the mentions of Intel's new Arc Alchemist GPU PCI IDs inside of the Linux open-source i915 Direct Rendering Manager driver. Here's a list of those supported Arc Alchemist GPUs:

  • 0x56B0 - NEW
  • 0x56BA - NEW
  • 0x56BB - NEW
  • 0x56BC - NEW
  • 0x56BD - NEW
  • 0x56A0 - Arc A770
  • 0x56A1 - Arc A750
  • 5x56A2 - Arc A580
  • 0x56A5 - Arc A380
  • 0x56A6- Arc A310
  • 0x56B3 - Arc Pro A60
  • 0x56B1- Arc Pro A50
  • 0x56B1 - Arc Pro A40
  • 0x5690 - Arc A770M
  • 0x5691 - Arc A730M
  • 0x5692 - Arc A550M
  • 0x5696 - Arc A570M
  • 0x5697 - Arc A530M
  • 0x5693 - Arc A370M
  • 0x5694 - Arc A350M

Now, according to a leaked desktop discrete graphics roadmap from Intel, leaked out by Red Gaming Tech, we can expect the new ACM+ G21 GPU to be the refresh of the current G10 version. Red Gaming Tech is the only one that has said this so far, so you might want to buy some salt from Amazon, just in case.

In the leaked slide, we can see that there are some other goodies in terms of Intel Arc GPUs coming in the next year or so. Alchemist carries over until the second half of 2023, where Alchemist+ is said to take over in the form of the ACM+ G20 (75-100W) and then ACM+ G21 (175-225W).

After that, Intel will have its next-gen Battlemage GPU architecture inside of the Arc Battlemage GPUs of 2024, which should be somewhere in Q2 of 2024 through to Q3 of 2024. The leaked roadmap suggests we'll see the BMG G10 revealed first (under 225W) while after that we'll get the BMG G21 (under 150W).

Intel's initial flock of Arc Alchemist desktop graphics cards were delayed and had issues at launch... so we should expect Battlemage to be better prepared for gamers when it launches in 2024.
