Intel introduces Arc Pro A60 and Pro A60M GPUs

The chip giant has introduced two new graphics solutions for workstations, the Intel Arc Pro A60 and the Arc Pro A60M. The first is a very compact graphics card, so compact that it only occupies one expansion slot, and the second is a GPU for laptops aimed at the professional sector.

The Intel Arc Pro A60 uses a cooling system that we can consider a classic in the professional graphics card sector, since it uses a turbine-type fan. This model uses the ACM-G12 GPUa chip that we have not seen before in any commercial product, and that has 16 Intel Xe blocks, which translates into a total of 256 execution units.

Crunching numbers, those 256 execution units are equivalent to 2,048 shaders or FP32 cores. The rest of the specifications of this graphics card are completed with 256 XMX units (specialized in artificial intelligence), has a 192-bit bus, has 12GB of GDDR6 memory, it runs at speeds of up to 2.4 GHz, uses the PCIe Gen4 interface, and has a TDP of 130 watts.

If we compare the ACM-G12 GPU with the G10 we see that there are important differences, since the latter has 32 Intel Xe blocks, which is a total of 512 execution units totaling 4,096 shaders or FP32 cores. We also find differences in the number of XMX matrices, which amounts to 512, and in the memory interface, since it has a 256-bit bus and 16 GB of GDDR6 memory.

The Intel Arc Pro A60 uses the same GPU, but it is a model designed for laptops and therefore its maximum working speed has been reduced to 1.3 GHz, since otherwise the TDP would have been too high. We know that the Arc Pro A60 will have a suggested retail price of $175, which is pretty good considering its specs, memory configuration, theoretical performance, and what we can find on the market today.

According to the chip giant, these graphics solutions are designed to give the best of themselves in different applications, including:

  • Autodesk 3ds Max.
  • Autodesk AutoCAD.
  • Autodesk Fusion 360.
  • Autodesk Inventor.
  • Autodesk Maya.
  • Bentley MicroStation.
  • Dassault Systems SOLIDWORKS.
  • Nemetscheck VectorWorks.
  • PTC I think.
  • Siemens NX.
  • Siemens SolidEdge.
