Intel Arc Alchemist may feature a high clock speed of 2.4GHz
Intel Arc Alchemist was spotted running at 2400MHz during a Geekbench OpenCL test.
The card that purports to run on the “Coffee Lake Client Platform” is most likely being tested in Intel labs or an undisclosed partner lab. According to data collected by Geekbench, the system is equipped with a Core i9-9600K processor with 6 cores and 6 threads.

With a score of 85,448 points, this engineering sample enters the performance segment of GeForce RTX 20 Turing GPUs, such as the RTX 2070/2060. It’s not even close to the rumored RTX 3070Ti/3070 series yet. Keep in mind that OpenCL is not a gaming standard, and may not be focused on the Intel team for Arc Alchemist GPUs at the moment.
