Intel is still unable to fully bring discrete desktop graphics cards to the market, but it has prepared a whole truckload of computers equipped with such adapters.
The Intel Arc Truck was created for the LANFest gaming event in Colorado, which is scheduled for September. The truck can hold a minimum of 30 gaming PCs. These are NUC 12 Extreme (Dragon Canyon) systems with Alder Lake processors. These PCs will be shipped to the market without a pre-installed video card, but for the festival, Intel will equip them with their own adapters.
What exactly is unclear, but there is an image showing a fairly large 3D card with two fans. That is, this is definitely not a basic model, and it is unlikely that Intel would bring computers to the game festival that are not capable of providing normal performance in modern games.
Considering that LANFest will be held from September 30 to October 3, Intel has time to bring discrete adapters to the market and finalize the drivers that are the most complained about right now.
