The market could really use a third competitor right now, but if Intel's flagship is half as fast as a 3070 with the power draw of a 3090, they might as well not release it.
 
I'm starting to wonder if Intel is not trying too hard now to not lose the "hype" and momentum for their cards as it feels (strong implication of "no hard evidence to back this up") as if their shine was lost the minute they fumbled the Q1 time frame and started giving excuses for their release; just like they did with 10nm with the "but it's out there in Laptops you can't easily and readily buy, but they exist!".

Regards.
 
Intel also loves to segment their stuff so a gaming GPU not doing so well in Davinci might not be saying anything about their gaming capabilities.

At the end pricing will be the determining factor here, if it is priced according to its capabilities in gaming compared to other gaming cards it will do fine.

Hmm. Where did you find the unreleased power demands of the A770?

Because its around 120 watts, and a 3090 is around 450.

Not even close.

The A770 should be less than a 3060 in terms of wattage.

Indeed Intel's upcoming Arc A770 if priced right will afford me and the man on the street in finally buying a GPU on the shelf. Many are tired of waiting and while still being lambasted with scalper prices or still much above the MSRP to purchasing GPU generations that soon will be over 2-years old and more! I am relatively sure that the ARC products will never reach the ‘BEST GPU PICK LIST’ in the tech-channels here, but on the flipside there are more enthusiasts on the lower-end of the food chain out there then on the upper. The ARC may be the time for the little man?

Intel’s next quarterly earnings report will be published on Thursday, April 28th, 2022. I wonder what the story will be for the remainder of this year. I would love to see the ARC once in big volume on sale at 'Best Buy' forcing NVIDIA to see the reality of things, scalpers to finally disappear and prices for all of the older generation 3000 series GPU's to dropping below the MSRP!

Looking at the mobile version, we are pretty such it won't draw as much power as 3090, nowhere near it.The A370M will consume around 50-60W of power. While the desktop variant should be faster and draw more power, its not going to draw 8-9x more power.

The 3D rendered photo also shows a normal 2 slot cooler which is clear insufficient if it uses as much power as 3090.
