When it comes to graphics cards for many years, two companies come to mind: Nvidia and AMD . Intel , which is currently the largest in the processor industry , wants to shake the throne of these two companies, which are also eyeing the graphics card industry. In this way , three new graphics cards were introduced, consisting of Arc Pro A40 , A50 and A30M for laptops , which they produced by targeting professionals .

Intel is targeting professionals rather than regular users. Graphics cards optimized for Blender , HandBrake, Premier Pro and similar professional applications will make business studios much more useful with hardware support. We can say that Intel graphics cards have a very narrow usage area. It is worth noting that Intel Arc Pro graphics cards have even lower processing power than the RTX 3050 , which was released last January  .

Intel Arc Pro Graphics Cards Have AV1 Hardware Acceleration

Major enhancements at the hardware level await potential customers for professional use, where Intel will use graphics cards as its main marketing route. Intel thinks that the H.264 standard , which has long dominated the field of video compression formats, will evolve into AV1 over time . For this reason, hardware improvements have been made to enable AV1 extension video outputs to Intel Arc Pro graphics cards .

Graphics cards are needed especially for processing high resolution AV1 videos. Nvidia’s RTX 30 series and AMD’s  Radeon RX 6000  series, which are among the most powerful graphics cards in the industry so far , could only do AV1 decoding via software . It is thought that the support that Intel brings at the hardware level will increase the analysis optimization . Intel has added many new hardware-level features to its Arc Pro graphics cards so that artificial intelligence developments can be made easily to establish professional business studios. In short, games can be played with these graphics cards, but this is not the purpose of creation!

The release date and prices of Intel Arc Pro graphics cards are not yet certain . However, Intel is expected to release graphics cards  later this year .
