Intel may launch its high-end Alchemist mobile soon
Material leak @_rogame discovered the first 3DMark entries with Intel’s still-unreleased Arc A770M/A550M GPUs.
The Intel Arc Alchemist mobile series has only had a partial launch in China so far. That’s slowly starting to change as Intel brings its entry-level A370M GPUs to other markets, but the more powerful variants based on the larger Alchemist GPU: A550M, A730M, and A770M are still hard to find.
Rogame leak showcases A550M and A770M GPUs in 3DMark software. Unfortunately, both results leave more questions than answers, but it does mean that these cards have now entered the testing phase, which further suggests that the launch should be a matter of weeks, not months.

A550M much slower than A730M
The A550M SKU featuring half of the ACM-G10 GPU cores (16 Xe-Cores) scored 6017 points in 3DMark Time Spy using the old 1726 driver. Unfortunately, this test was run with Intel APO (Advanced Performance Optimizations) enabled , which essentially makes it invalid by 3DMark rules.
From what we saw earlier, APO means about 15% better score. On the other hand, compared to A730M with APO (as tested here) shows that A730M is still 67% faster than A550M with 50% more cores.
A770M as good as RTX 3070M in 3DMark (only)
Now, regarding Intel Arc A770M, it was tested in Fire Strike Extreme where it scored 13244 points in Graphics. This is actually roughly the same score as the RTX 3070 laptop GPU running with the same CPU (Core i7-12700H) based on data from the 3DMark database (image below). This discrete GPU has been tested with a test driver (build 9999) typically used by OEMs and system integrators before releasing new hardware. But it is unknown if APO is specifically enabled in this version.

It should be noted, however, that the official performance of the A770M has already been confirmed by Intel. This card should be 12% faster than the RTX 3060M in games on average. Therefore, the leaked 3DMark scores are again completely wrong with actual gaming tests where Intel clearly still has a lot of optimizations to do.
