I hope Intel will have some sort of queue for OneAPI developers to get an Alchemist card from wherever. Otherwise, there may be an NVIDIA like problem.

Hi,

Could you please elaborate more on this statement?

I am not sure whether it's production, scalpers or demand, but there has been no way to buy Nvidia 3060, 3070 or 3080 cards retail for at least 6 months excepting a few lucky few. EBay x3 prices.  I would hope Intel would come up with a plan where developers would be able to purchase one without direct competition with bulk buyers for all supply.

I could try to respond more aptly than Raja, but I'd surely fail, so I'll just quote him. I will add that my group is who he's talking about working hard on the path towards the mission; it's a big challenge but we're on it! Stay tuned and thanks for reaching out!
