Intel Arc Pro A-Series GPUs Specifications
Ray-tracing technology and machine learning components are among the standout characteristics of the new Intel Arc Pro A-series GPUs. They also assist with the first-ever in the industry AV1 hardware encoding acceleration.
The Intel Arc Pro A40 (single slot), Arc Pro A50 (dual slot), and the Intel Arc Pro A30M (mobile form factor) are intended for small-form notebooks, respectively.
The Arc Pro A30M features a maximum performance of 3.50 TFLOPs, 4GB GDDR6 RAM, and a max of 35-50w. The Arc Pro A40 provides 3.50 TFLOPs of GPU power but has 6GB of GDDR6 RAM and a max power of 50W. The Arc Pro A50 has a peak performance of 4.80 TFLOPs, 6GB of GDDR6 RAM, and peak power of 75W.
Two UHD displays are compatible (60Hz), one ultra-wide UHD monitor (240Hz), two UHD monitors (120Hz), and four 4K monitors (60Hz). In addition, the new GPU series supports Dolby Vision and PCIe 4.0 x 16 (x8 Electrical) with 3.0 backward compatibility.
Furthermore, the new GPUs contain certifications from prominent professional software programs, as well as compatibility for media and entertainment apps such as Blender. They also have support for the Intel oneAPI Rendering Toolkit, which allows them to run open-source software.
Later this year, the new Intel Arc Pro A-series GPUs will be released. While Intel claims the new GPUs will be used in devices by “leading mobile and desktop ecosystem partners,” no details on the exact device have been released.
