The Intel Arc Alchemist series of graphics cards for desktop PCs may consist of at least seven models.

Rumor has it that Intel's Arc Alchemist A-Series line of graphics cards will include a completely budget-friendly graphics card known as the A310. Although Intel has never officially released the DG1 for desktops, the GPU did end up in the OEM segment with options from a number of AIBs, including ASUS . The DG1 graphics card, being an entry-level design, has gained some popularity due to its low price and feature set. Based on a new rumor, Intel is expected to release a successor to the DG1 graphics card in the form of the Arc A310 graphics card.

A previous report already talked about Intel's four Arc A-Series desktop graphics cards based on Alchemist DG2 GPUs. If the Arc A310 rumors are true, it will be the fifth graphics card in the lineup. The name A310 pretty much sums up what this card is: an entry-level, low-power graphics card that will target the OEM segment. It is quite possible that this card will only be released in the OEM segment and will not see a DIY release such as the RX 6400.

In terms of specs, the Arc A310 will be a cut down video card below the Arc A380 and Arc A350. It will use the ACM-G11 GPU core and have 4 GB of GDDR6 memory over a 64-bit bus interface. As for the number of cores, it could either keep 96 EUs, like the Arc A350 series, or shrink even more, with only 64 EUs included. This will be half of the entire ACM-G11 GPU on which it is based. The performance is said to be lower than the Radeon RX 6400 graphics card.
