Intel has released new beta drivers for its Arc and Iris Xe graphics cards. The new driver adds support for an all-new GPU, the Intel Arc 580.

This product hasn't officially been announced yet by Intel, but online reports from websites like PC Gamer indicate that third-party companies ASRock and Sparkle are preparing to start selling cards with the Arc A580 GPU at any moment. The new models will reportedly have 8GB of video RAM, along with 24 ray tracing units. Hopefully, we will get some official info from Intel soon.

Aside from the support for the new GPU, these beta drivers add support for three upcoming games; Total War Pharaoh, Lords of the Fallen, and the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III beta test that's coming this weekend. It also has a couple of Starfield performance improvements.
