Flagship Intel Arc Alchemist desktop graphics card spotted with 2.4 GHz GPU clock

Intel Arc Alchemist might feature a high clock speed of 2.4 GHz

Intel Arc Alchemist has been spotted running 2400 MHz clock speed during the Geekbench OpenCL test.

The card which is supposedly running on “Coffee Lake Client Platform” is most likely under testing at Intel’s or an undisclosed board partner’s labs. According to data collected by Geekbench software, the system was equipped with a Core i9-9600K processor with 6 cores and 6 threads.

The Xe Graphics with 512 Compute Units refers to the Arc Alchemist graphics card equipped with DG2-512 GPU. This is the flagship model from the upcoming series, most likely a desktop GPU at this point, which is now officially launching in the second quarter this year.

With a score of 85448 points, this engineering sample enters the performance segment of GeForce RTX 20 Turing GPUs, such as RTX 2070/2060. It is nowhere near the rumored RTX 3070Ti / 3070 series yet. Bear in mind though, OpenCL is not a gaming benchmark, and probably not a focus for the Intel team for Arc Alchemist GPUs right now.
