Intel® Arc™ Pro A40 Graphics
Introducing the latest professional workstation GPU from Intel: the Intel® Arc™ Pro A40 GPU. With built-in ray tracing hardware, graphics acceleration, and machine learning capabilities, the Intel Arc Pro A40 GPU unites fluid viewports, the latest in visual technologies, and rich content creation in a tiny form factor.
Professional Graphics Begins Here
Say Hello to Pro GPU Choice
For many professional users, Intel equates to years of extensive trust and outstanding reliability, and this latest range of professional graphics continues to build on that. You may have been using Intel integrated graphics for years, which makes moving to more powerful, dedicated graphics from Intel a clear choice.
You may think it’s only a new range of GPUs, but to us it’s bringing competition and innovation back to your favorite software tools.
High Speed Memory
Dedicated AI Acceleration
Up to Four Displays at 4K
Single Slot, Tiny Form Factor
Intel Professionalism Inside
Everything about this graphics card shouts professional. Built with premium components—and to meet the expectations of our demanding premium workstation partners—this graphics card is manufactured using techniques inspired by airplane fuselage fabrication. These techniques include a robust sheet-metal aluminum shroud, aluminum base plate, and dense 25x blade thermally efficient high-speed axial fan that exhausts a high volume of hot air out of the card’s elegant vents and main system. All these features help ensure that the card, your system, and your software can run smoothly.

Expertly Verified Software
Intel has worked hand-in-hand with hundreds of software companies over the years, and this unmatched experience goes into our professional Intel Arc Pro A-series graphics cards. Certifications and software workflow qualifications are as important to us as they are to you.
Ray Tracing Without the Premium
Graphics cards need to do more than push pixels to displays, they also need to accelerate the creation of beautiful, compute intensive imagery. Ray tracing hardware technology built into Intel Arc Pro A-series graphics allows your compatible software to explore these new pro workflows, without the cost premium. Ray tracing is typically thought of as only available on expensive GPUs, but our latest graphics cards change this expectation.
More Large Displays with One Tiny Card
Despite the condensed forms, the latest Intel Arc Pro A-series GPUs bring support for more monitors than the competitive equivalents. The Intel Arc Pro A40 GPU supports up to four ultra-large displays to enhance your workflow efficiencies, which is 100% more than select GPUs on the market today. Add high dynamic range (HDR) and audio support too and you have all you need for that next social-media-worthy home or office multi-display setup.
More Memory Than the Others
The demands professional software places on graphics cards continue to increase with each new software release. To combat this, we added 50%1 more memory than similar offerings from the competition. More memory allows you to take on bigger video projects, tackle larger assembles, develop models and buildings, and work on detailed 4K imagery.
By including more high-speed memory, we help you achieve your large project vision.
Full Memory Bandwidth Potential with No Half GPU Punishments
The bandwidth of your graphics card is an important consideration in a workstation. Get it wrong and you can slow down professional workflows, which is why we made sure the Intel Arc Pro A40 GPU has support for modern PCIe 4.0 x8 systems, without penalizing backwards compatibility. Graphics memory is further enhanced by a competitively high bandwidth speed, allowing project data to be accessed by your software even faster.
Industry First Acceleration
Full AV1 Hardware Acceleration. 4.4x faster hardware encoding with Intel Arc Graphics compared to software encoding.2
Accelerating Your AI Workflows
This GPU range features a wide selection of great technology, including support for your compatible AI tools with built-in dedicated AI acceleration where you need it.
Compatible with Your Viewports
Professional software can use varying viewport API languages, which is why we optimize our graphics for a range of technologies. Working with long-established partners, we aim to squeeze as much performance as possible out of the cards, but never at the disadvantage of overall stability.
The latest standard from Microsoft for high-resolution textures and ray tracing (DXR), improving visuals within the viewport and real-time software.
An API for Heterogeneous Computing (systems with more than one kind of processor or cores).
A cross-vendor, cross-platform API for 3D graphics and compute, Vulkan offers support for advanced features such as ray tracing.
