    Maybe they could special bundle with gigabyte: https://www.guru3d.com/news-story/gi...-supplies.html

      I sincerely hope that the name wasn't chosen because of high power requirements in these cards...

      But speaking seriously, Intel couldn't had a better time to launch those. The market will buy anything right now, even if it under-perform compared to its rivals.

        As a welder, Lincoln is the Arc brand I normally think of

        Who It Helps: Intel’s long-term vision is to bring frictionless gaming and content creation experiences to gamers and creators worldwide, giving them innovation and choice in hardware coupled with open and accessible software tools.
        I have to ask, WTF is "frictionless gaming"? Is that a gaming PC without a fan or actively moving parts so there is no friction? Magnetic parts to remove mechanical friction? A buzzword?

            6-9 months from now is not "right now", though. We'll see if the chip shortage is still a thing when this thing gets out. GPU mining will mostly be dead by then.

              Wth. Arc? Brand management?
              I think they should take a page from their CPU division.
              Choose one name and stick to it.
              Core has worked well for 15 years.
              Nvidias "GeForce" for more than two decades.

                There is no friction in a Arc dude. As a welder you should know that.

                  Like I said before: if people would be buying powerpoints and PR material, Intel would be rolling in $$$ by now.

                  Call it "pink elephant" for all I care. Just don't bother me till it's on shelves.

                    bingo. if there's a massive selloff, even people who wouldn't normally buy used might take the risk when the prices are low enough (i mean, and i don't expect exactly this, but i'd risk a mined 3080 for like $100). they might actually catch the WORST time to launch. but i could use some proof-of-steak rn tbh :P'''
