Intel updated the system requirements for Arc Alchemist's video cards, which were originally published as early as June of this year. If it was previously suggested that only Intel processors should be used, and not older than Core 10 series, the AMD Ryzen 3000 and Ryzen 5000 processors would be compatible.
Intel had previously mentioned that the maximum performance of Arc Alchemist's video cards required support from the Resizable BAR technology system, which was confirmed by the tests. Recall that the Resizable BAR allows the central processor to access the entire video memory grid. In the new system requirements, Intel's video cards still insist on having ReBAR support from the PC. The new video cards are simply not designed to work with the old PCs.
Arc Alchemist's video cards also indicate the need to use Windows 1020H2 or Windows 11 operating systems. Windows 7 will not work with Intel; there are no drivers for this LO. According to VideoCardz, Intel's representative Tom Petersen recently reported that the company is only planning to optimize its video cards to operate without the support of ReBAR.
It will be recalled that video maps of Intel Arc A770 and Arc A750 are due for sale next week and are scheduled for release on 12 October.
