Intel has started emailing Xe-HPG Scavenger Hunt winners notifying them that they have won an Intel Arc Alchemist A-Series desktop graphics card.
Intel Xe-HPG Scavenger winners now receive emails to win an Intel Arc Alchemist ‘Premium’ & ‘Performance’ graphics card
The Intel Xe-HPG Scavenger started last year on October 27, 2021 and ended on January 31, 2022. The whole event was based on finding clues scattered around the web and submitting the good answers. Intel said there will be 300 winners who will receive their next Arc Alchemist A-Series graphics cards before they are even available.
Well it seems that the winners have already been notified and the price list is very interesting which includes:
- 1x Intel Arc Alchemist ‘Premium’ or ‘Performance’ desktop graphics card
- Intel Arc-graphics branded products
- 6 months of Xbox Game Pass for PC
The top prize is an Intel Arc Alchemist graphics card which will be the blue team’s first mainstream gaming release. The top 100 winners will receive the Premium variant worth US$900 while the other 200 winners (300 in total) will receive the “Performance” GPU variant worth US$700.

So we know that the price difference between the Premium variant and the Performance variant is US$200. Now, given that the rest of the products cost an additional 100 or 150 USD, we can conclude that the ‘Performance’ graphics card should end up with a price close to $299-$349 while the ‘Premium’ variant should end up near from $499 -Price from US$549.
These are decent prices but in the end they are neither final nor set in stone. Price averages are usually high and don’t reflect retail MSRP, but rest assured, these Xe-HPG Scavenger Hunt winners will be the first to get their hands on Intel’s Arc Alchemist desktop graphics cards as they arrive. on retail shelves. Later this year. We can expect several users to post their unboxing and impressions on various social media once they receive their cards. And finally, congratulations to all!
