It is now official that, as we previously reported, the review embargo for Arc A7 GPUs will be lifted on October 5. That is precisely one week before the scheduled October 12th formal launch date. It should be noted that NVIDIA releases their RTX 4090 GPU on the same day, making the timing odd. On the other hand, except for two providers, one will be able to get both high-end and mid-range GPUs equipped with the most recent technology available.
This Arc launch will be international, but Intel hasn’t confirmed the whole list of partners and merchants that will participate. The rollout of Arc desktop, according to the business, would be “restricted to critical nations.” Only Intel’s own Limited Edition GPUs are currently known to be arriving on this date, although the firm is teasing partner cards that may also be available shortly.
A unique Arc A750 Gold Edition is anticipated for China, however, it’s essentially simply a new box. The card itself is unaffected by the special edition’s colour changes to the Arc emblem and box embellishments.
After months of anticipation, we can now announce that the Intel Graphics team is officially providing test units to the press. It will be less than a week until we get test results from unbiased media and no more Intel promotion if the review embargo date is accurate.
