It is finally official. Intel’s first single gaming GPU for gaming will be launched for laptops next month. Desktop GPUs will follow in Q2, 2022, and workstations will receive Intel Arc graphics cards in Q3 this year.

The announcement comes from Intel’s official Twitter account.

For those unfamiliar with Intel Arc GPUs, the goal is to get Nvidia’s RTX 3000 GPUs with similar performance and price.

But that’s not the only announcement Intel has made this week. The American chip maker has also unveiled a cloud gaming service called Project Endgame. This will allow you to rent Intel graphics cards in the cloud for “always accessible, low latency computing experience”.

The details of Project Endgame are not yet clear, but it looks like Intel is working on a full front end gaming service like Nvidia’s GeForce Now. Intel has not disclosed any other details such as what kind of GPU access it will give users, how much it will cost, or whether it will be for gaming purposes only.

But since Intel is clearly taking on the battle of the gaming industry, we expect the cost and services to be similar to other competitors of cloud gaming such as Google Stadia, Xbox Cloud Gaming, etc. There is no exact launch date yet as Intel has just said that. That it is coming later this year.
