Latest update with WHQL certification for Arc Pro A40 and A30 GPUs.
Intel currently offers three professional GPU options: desktop A40, A30, and A30M for laptops. This graphic is based on the Arc Alchemist (Xe-HPG) architecture, and was announced in August last year. However, even today these cards are only offered to OEMs.
Intel has put a lot of effort into improving development software and this has been shown in the frequent driver updates for the Arc series of games, but the same cannot be said of their professional GPU division. The last driver was released on December 5 last year (188.8.131.5217). With the new release, Intel didn’t update their Arc PRO series for more than 4 months.
The new driver focuses on professional application certification. Many of the previously listed software are no longer awaiting certification, but have been verified and added to the support list:
Autodesk 3ds Max 2022, 2023
Autodesk AutoCAD 2022, 2023
Autodesk Fusion 360
Autodesk Inventor 2022, 2023
Autodesk Maya 2022, 2023
Bentley MicroStation 10.17.00.29.x
Dassault Systèmes SOLIDWORKS 2022, 2023
PTC Creo 8, 9
Siemens NX 2027
Siemens Solid Edge 2022, 2023
The driver introduced several fixes for the application, but the list of known issues is still growing. So far, Intel has not commented on the possibility of an Arc PRO GPU with the ACM-G10 GPU. The solutions currently available are all based on smaller entry level dies.
