Intel may soon introduce the high-end Alchemist mobile phone

Leaky equipment @_rogame Discovered the first 3DMark entries featuring Intel’s yet-to-be-released Arc A770M/A550M GPUs.

The Intel Arc Alchemist mobile series has only been partially launched in China so far. This is slowly starting to change as Intel brings its entry-level A370M GPUs to other markets, but the more powerful variants based on the larger Alchemist GPU: the A550M, A730M and A770M are still hard to find.

Rogame’s leak shows A550M and A770M GPUs in 3DMark. Unfortunately, both results leave more questions than answers, but it does mean that these cards have already entered the testing phase, which means that launch is a matter of weeks, not months.

A550M is slower than A730M

The A550M SKU with half the ACM-G10 GPU cores (16 Xe-Cores) scored 6017 in 3DMark Time Spy using the older 1726 drivers. Unfortunately, this test was performed with Intel APO (Advanced Performance Optimization) enabled, which makes it invalid according to 3DMark guidelines.

Based on what we’ve seen before, APO means about 15% better results. On the other hand, compared to the A730M with APO (as tested here) show that the A730M is still 67% faster than the A550M with 50% more cores.

Now coming to Intel Arc A770M, it was tested in Fire Strike Extreme where it scored 13244 in Graphics. This is actually about the same score as the RTX 3070 Laptop GPU running the same CPU (Core i7-12700H) based on data from the 3DMark database (image below). This discrete GPU has been tested with a test driver (version 9999) by commonly used OEMs and system integrators before new hardware is launched. However, it is unclear whether APO is specifically enabled in this version.

It should be noted that this is the official performance of the A770M already confirmed by Intel. This card should be 12% faster than the RTX 3060M in games on average. Therefore, the leaked 3DMark scores are completely muted by real-world gaming tests, where Intel clearly still has a lot of optimizations to do.
