Intel’s new graphics cards seem to promise some shakeup in terms of the GPU market. But, despite supposedly having already been released some model of the Arc Alchemist line, it seems that this one is nowhere to be found.
Stranger still is that Intel recently revealed that, after all, its Arc graphics will only be available at the end of the second quarter of 2022.
Intel Arc? Only at the end of the second trimester
More than a week after Intel supposedly released its new line of Arc Alchemist graphics cards, they can't be found anywhere. According to the information, the Californian company will only have launched the most entry-level Arc 3 range, but those laptop models equipped then with the Arc A350 and A370M graphics chips are impossible to find on the market.
The channel VideoCardz he even posted a post on his Twitter account, where he asks his followers if any of them have already managed to buy a laptop with Intel's new graphics card. And got no positive response. As such, all these issues reinforce the idea that Intel, after all, will not have launched these devices during the first quarter of this year.
To make matters even worse, Intel's support Twitter account said last week that laptops with integrated Intel Arc Alchemist will be available for purchase by the end of Q2 2022.
Hi! Laptops with Intel ARC will be available for purchase by the end of the second quarter of 2022. We suggest you follow our newsroom at https://t.co/AlNpzzMu5P for all the updates.

But through the publication we don't know for sure if the company refers to the entire mobile line available, or just the Arc 5 and 7 range, which will not have been launched by Intel.
There is also information that on some sites that already listed computer models with Arc Alchemist for purchase, the shipping date has been postponed to the days between May 25th and June 13th. So, if you were thinking about buying a laptop with Intel's new graphics chips, you might have to wait a few more weeks.
