Thought they binned the whole ARC line up
Rumours abound its binned, just after they appeared in host of you-tube channel with Intel Engineers on hand to protect the priceless cards.

There are a lot of them, hundreds or thousands mixed in with cycles and even more motorcycle scooters and motorcycles. It seems works OK with scooters in the middle of very busy roads.
Having a lack of angry UK car drivers screaming "You don't pay road tax" seems to help.
They had a chance and they blew it, took too long to get to market.
6-12 months ago as they promised they could have make an impact and gain some customer loyalty and buy in, but its too late, they're offerings are lackluster as best and way too late for a market that is now swamped with over stock.
The folk that would have purchased a GPU for 2-3 times what its is worth already have a GPU or have waited out the shortage.
Hopefully those scalping &£&&^& &^&^&:@ gits have lots of very overpriced stock they can't sell and make massive losses.
Still got my boxed version of VS2002
been a wide ride, but you can get code out quickly and likely most .NET 1.1 code will compile (mostly) today.
It did try stuff then abandon it with ease much to the demoanment of some devs and some of the "experiments" where truly awful.
But on the whole its good to work with.
Community has been really good and supportive over the years.
Boardrooms and reality are non intersecting entities, its stuffed with power plays, egos, short term bonuses, gouge markets and customers and then its just a roll of the dice.
Intel would really like to slow innovation and enable better R&D return aka profits, this is what they have been doing for years until AMD kept them awake at night. Now Apple is spinning its own ARM (which it gets for free as its in its original funder contract). Now everyone is going.... hmm... if Apple can (MS was there first with ARM PCs, but as always its original effort was lacklustre at best).
These are dev workhorses here as it hard to find light laptops with a 40Gb ram (our dev standard) and the cheapish on site support is offered by no one else at this price. We opt for 4 years onsite.
There are very good if a bit boring looking, hook it up to a docking station with 3 monitors and off you go.
Specs and delivery lag can vary greatly from week to week.
Did you look at the testing they did against AMD chip.... no....
They tested against WINDOWS 11 on gaming, which I would bet my shirt was done before AMD release their new driver to fix the windows 11 performance issues.
So a very large pinch ... bucket of salt is required here.
Virgin dug up the street about 4 years ago and stuck fibre in
City Fibre dug up the street 1 year ago and put fibre in.
No idea why I have two when other areas have none.
Choice comes down to, do you want the free BT sports with Virgin.
I can also get very Scottish broadband with https://www.brawband.co.uk/ , Although I think they missed a trick and could have called it Baw Band.
or fools gold, get rich quick, ponzi schemes, money laundering and a novelty.... take you pick.
What it is not is a currency. 1 BTC does not have a defined value in a geographic location. And there are the transaction fees for every transfer who would really put up with that with really money.
We already have digital currency be it USD, EURO, GBP, AUD etc..... I rarely use cash and rarely actually have any on me from month to month.
Need a 8th Gen intel or more, tpm.
My top end surface book 1 i7 16Gb can't be upgraded.
The community is going nuts already.
I still remember VISTA, went out and bought MACs for the whole family.
Except Apple is less viable than before moving to Mx.
Now have two C64 and a BBC Master. Never had some much fun since the 1980s
I never knew the strength of old 8 bit computer community, there is even new games getting published.
Weird how it easier to get kit from the 1980s than it is getting a new xbox x, ps5 or even a new Ryzen 5 series chip.
