Intel Arc A770 & A750 Review


UltraMega

Recommended Posts

Quote

There are two versions of the Intel A770, the standard 8GB model and a more premium 16GB model. The A770 Limited Edition that we have for testing comes in at $350, while the standard 8GB model costs $330. Then there's the slightly cut down A750 which will cost $290.

The A770 features 32 Xe cores, 32 ray tracing units, an operating frequency of 2100 MHz and a 225w power rating. The 16GB version enjoys a memory bandwidth of up to 560 GB/s, while the 8GB version not only has half as much VRAM, but the bandwidth has also been cut by 9% as it uses 16 Gbps GDDR6 memory opposed to 17.5 Gbps GDDR6.

These two benchmarks show what's going on here. Occasionally really great performance on newer titles, terrible on older ones. 

 

One thing this review missed is that Arc scales really well at higher resolutions and with RT. Digital Foundry covers that pretty well.

 

 

 

I think they're starting to show promise. Still a long road ahead, but they'll get there eventually.

Curious, that's not too bad. I don't have the time to dig around right now, but I wonder how they compare to top-tier cards that were around when the older games were released. Could make them a bit more competitive if they're framed that way, since in most games (CS:GO being an exception) older titles wouldn't benefit all that much from being run by a completely overkill GPU, and would be acceptable with a new Arc card. I also wonder why they're so much less competitive in older games. DX versions? I should read some full reviews/watch full videos lol, maybe someone already has the answer.

 

Agreed though, this isn't as bad of a start as I expected, based on other news surrounding this launch.

The ARC cards handle DX9 by emulating it to DX12 which makes more work for the GPU hence the about half the FPS in the DX9 games as cards that are able to handle it directly(linus actually compared a GTX 780 and it got higher FPS in CSGO) Meanwhile there are also games that show amd having advantage over intel & nvidia and believe it not,ARC beat Nvidia & amd in metro exodus. 🤔 Jayz believe's it's mostly a matter of drivers being put out for the games now. here's his vid with results for Cyberpunk,Gears5,metroexodus,GuardiansoftheGalaxy,Forza Horizon5,Borderlands3,Shadow of the TombRaider, with & without RT.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d_Sl8W-RQH0

like he says in the video,it's almost an ad for amd. 🙂   how ARC handles DX9 =  https://www.archynewsy.com/intel-xe-and-arc-gpu-dx9-games-emulated-with-directx12/

...6 + 8 pin PCIe, and, ahem, glue ? Still, could become a nice midrange card if they can get the drivers fully developed (which I think they will)

Yeah drivers will come with time. Hopefully they keep at it.

 

I know this teardown reaction is a bit over the top, but really that does look like a pain in the butt to teardown.
