Intel has announced new additions to its “Arc Pro” series of workstation graphics cards with the Arc Pro A60 and A60M GPUs. As the name implies, the A60M is a mobile design while the regular A60 is for workstation desktops. Let’s learn more. 

Intel Arc Pro A60 and Arc Pro A60M Overview:

Intel Arc A60 GPU

Compared to the older Arc Pro A40, A50, and A30M, these guys have a much wider memory bus width. This is possible thanks to twice the number of PCIe lanes on these cards (from 8 to 16). As a result, the A60M gets a 128-bit bus with 256GB/s bandwidth and 6GB of GDDR6 video memory, while Arc Pro A60 has a 192-bit memory bus with 384GB/s bandwidth and 12GB GDDR6 VRAM.


With built-in ray tracing hardware, graphics acceleration and machine learning capabilities, the Intel Arc Pro A60 GPU unites fluid viewports, the latest in visual technologies and rich content creation in a traditional single slot factor.

And roughly speaking, they are twice as faster as the Arc Pro A50. They also support up to 4 displays with HDR and Dolby Vision.

Not only that, the Arc Pro A60 and A60M have twice the XMX engines (16) and twice the ray tracing units (256) too. These cards also offer full media encode and decode support, including AV1 codec. These enhancements make these GPUs ideal for computer-aided design and modeling (CAD/CAM), AI tasks, and media processing.

Intel is also promising 3 years of limited warranty, and quarterly driver updates for performance optimization for these cards. On top, they are also ISV (Independent Software Vendors)-certified for a bunch of applications including but not limited to: 

  • Autodesk 3ds Max
  • Autodesk AutoCAD
  • Autodesk Fusion 360
  • Autodesk Inventor
  • Autodesk Maya
  • Bentley MicroStation
  • Dassault Systèmes SOLIDWORKS
  • Nemetscheck VectorWorks
  • PTC Creo
  • Siemens NX
  • Siemens Solid Edge

What else?

Although the new Arc Pro graphics cards are designed for professional workstations, Intel Arc Pro A60 can also be used in home PCs for media consumption and content creation. And the company says it has optimized these GPUs for applications like Blender and to run rendering/raytracing libraries in Intel oneAPI Rendering Toolkit.

Intel also mentions compatibility with small form factor (SFF) PCs with 125W unlocked 13th Gen Intel Core processors. Like Intel’s NUC 13 family. Likewise, the Arc Pro A60M has 65-95W of TGP, compared to Arc Pro A60’s 130W.

Intel Arc Pro A60 and Arc Pro A60M Price and Availability

According to the company, Arc Pro A60 will available via Intel-authorized distributors in the upcoming weeks. The mobile variant, Arc Pro A60M GPU, will take a bit longer to reach the consumers and we can expect devices with this GPU in the upcoming months. But there’s no word on their pricing details yet.
