Intel has been making waves lately as they will soon release "Arc" - their new graphic processor designed to rival Nvidia's GeForce series and AMD's Radeon series of GPUs.

In an interview with Gadgets360 featuring Intel executives and their general manager for graphics and system acceleration, they gave the first details on the launch of the new Arc Alchemist graphics cards (GPU).

In the interview, Intel indicated these GPUs will be capable of mining cryptocurrency, in the sense that there will be nothing in place to prevent it. However, gamers are their target market so there will be nothing built in to help facilitate crypto mining either.

"As far as like software lockouts and things of that nature, we're not designing this product or building any features at this point that specifically target miners. As far as actions we're taking to avoid or lock them out, it's a product that will be in the market and people will be able to buy it. It's not a priority for us." said Roger Chandler, Intel VP and GM of Client Graphics Products and Solutions.

What we don't have is the specifics on price, or performance.  We do know they aim to launch in early 2022, and if the current GPU shortage is still going on, intel has a chance to grab a piece of the market fast and easily.
