Intel has set modest expectations for its upcoming Arc A750 Limited Edition GPU, with the chipmaker offering brief glimpses of the card’s more modest performance on paper.
While the A750 should be one of Intel’s best GPUs, Intel’s naming conventions include the Arc 5 and Arc 3 below the Arc 7, offering mid-range and entry-level performance respectively. on the edge.
Intel’s Ryan Schrutt gave us a test run of Cyberpunk 2077 on a PC with an A750 chip, and instead of taking a long look at the gameplay, Schrutt goes straight to performance.
With the game set to “High Quality” preset and a resolution of 2560 x 1440, the card averages “slightly less” than 60 frames per second (FPS), says Schrudt, which isn’t bad, but not necessarily what you want. Expect discrete graphics cards for the first time from a company like ‘Emerging Intel’.
Shred’s following benchmark tests show how well the card fares against the entry-level Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060. The Intel Arc A750 performs 1.06 to 1.15 times better than the standard RTX 3060 in games like Cyberpunk 2077 F1 Control 2021. And Fortnite.
But these benchmark tests come with an asterisk — “Arc’s performance won’t be like this in all games,” Schradd notes, and describes the test as “a great demonstration of what Arc can achieve with proper game operation and software engineering.” (Not to mention that these tests were not done by an independent organization.)
The Intel Arc A750 GPU is set to launch later this summer, but the company has already released the A370M and A350M mobile GPUs in a few different laptops, as well as the entry-level Arc A380 desktop GPU in China (which should hit the market later this year).
A review by Linus Tech Tips called Intel’s A370M’s extra HP Specter x360 16-inch laptop “worse” than the previous RTX 3050, while YouTube PC gaming channel Gamer reported inconsistent performance with the Nexus A380.
Bugs and other glitches are inevitable with any new product, and as Linus points out, users don’t want to buy something that requires diving into uncharted territory, especially with GPUs readily available and Nvidia’s 40-series cards just around the corner. Report.
