Intel Claims That Its Arc A770 And A750 GPUs Will Outperform NVIDIA’s Mid-range RTX 3060

Intel has released new information about the specifications and performance of its Arc desktop GPUs before they become available to the general public in a few weeks. The A750 will start at $289 and will be available on October 12th, just like the A770. Pricing for the A770 begins at $329 and will include 32 Xe cores, 32 ray-tracing units, and a 2,100MHz graphics clock. It is available with either 8 GB or 16 GB of RAM, with speeds of up to 512 GB/s and 560 GB/s, respectively, the memory.

Intel recently announced a $289 starting price for their new A750 processor, which features 28 Xe cores, 28 ray-tracing units, a 2,050MHz graphics clock, 8GB of memory, and up to 512 Gb/s of memory bandwidth. On the 12th of October, you’ll be able to purchase one of three cards, the sum of whose power is 225W.

According to Intel’s benchmarks, these graphics cards are more cost-effective than NVIDIA’s mid-range GeForce RTX 3060. The A770 is advertised as being 42% more cost-effective than the RTX 3060, while the A750 appears to be 53% more so.

It claims that the A770’s 16GB configuration outperformed the RTX 3060 in ray-tracing performance in most of the games it tested (which, in fairness, debuted back in early 2021). Intel claims that the A770’s ray-tracing performance in Fortnite was 1.56 times that of the RTX 3060.¬†Naturally, Intel will claim that its graphics processing units (GPUs) are superior to those of its rivals.

For a more accurate picture of the performance, we need to wait for the outcomes of our own benchmarking tests using Intel Arc. Whatever the case may be, NVIDIA appears to be facing new competition in the GPU market. This time, however, it comes from a well-known company whose products are used in many computers that would otherwise have used NVIDIA graphics cards.
