Intel's high-performance Arc family of graphics architectures resemble an adventuring party from tabletop role-playing lore or a classic turn-based computer RPG. The Intel Arc Alchemist, Battlemage, Celestial, and Druid delegation set off across a barren wasteland where GPUs are scarce to take on the mighty Dragon NVIDIA and nimble Red Mage AMD. We've seen their faces before, but today we've managed to obtain exclusive high-resolution artist renderings for the Alchemist, Intel's first gaming GPU architecture that the company plans to introduce products with in early 2022, and we can finally share them with you now.

Looks like Intel is doing mascots for its ARC video cards! HotHardware has an exclusive by being allowed to reveal the character of the upcoming ARC Alchemist GPUs. Alchemist will be succeeded by Battlemage, Celestial, and Druid. Presumably, these chips will get a similar mascot. The first discrete video cards from Intel are expected in early 2022.
