A new rumor states that Intel has canceled its plans to have a mobile dedicated GPU for laptops based on the latest Battlemage architecture. Now, we may only see Arc dedicated GPUs for desktops and none for laptops. Still, Battlemage could be used for integrated Arc graphics on laptops. The rumor also has details on release date of new Intel Arc graphics built on Battlemage architecture. Reportedly, Intel is targeting a Q4-24 or Q1-25 launch.
Intel Arc graphics have gotten better with the new 18.104.22.16886 driver update. In many AAA titles, Intel Arc A-series GPUs have notable performance gains such as Returnal & The Last of Us Part 1 getting 8% more FPS. Core Ultra processors with Arc graphics also see performance improvements, with 6% more FPS in mentioned games at lower settings.
