Intel’s upcoming Arc A750 desktop graphics card will be the company’s most powerful discrete GPU to date. But what does that mean in terms of real-world performance?

Last month Intel released a few internal benchmarks showing that the GPU was competitive with NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 3060 in a handful of games. Now the company has published the results from dozens of benchmarks, showing that Arc A750 and RTX 3060 are neck and neck across a wide range of games using both DirectX12 and Vulkan graphics drivers.

There are some titles where NVIDIA takes the lead, but others where Intel comes out ahead. Of course, it’s important to keep in mind that NVIDIA also has higher-performance RTX 3070 and RTX 3080 graphics cards that will most likely blow Intel’s Arc A750 out of the water. But considering that this is a first-gen graphics card from Intel, performancce doesn’t look that bad… even if it’s taken Intel longer than expected to ramp up production of its high-end GPUs.

  1. Problems with Intel’s much-promoted Arc GPUs:
    – Late to the market, still not available anywhere
    – Intel surfs on ‘internal benchmarks’ to report their good performance numbers, little to no real-life testing by news/tech sites (unless they are obviously just paid to praise whatever you throw at them)
    – Intel hopes would-be buyers will forget they are proposing a GPU that apparently competes well with midrange GPUs that have been on the market for ~2 years, but once the Geforce 4k and Radeon 7k series are out, they will be destroyed
    – Still not available

    I think many want to see some competition going to shake things a bit on the consumer GPU market that is controlled by just 2 companies, Intel is making interesting strides in this direction, but the first gen of Arc GPUs is not yet the real contender.

    Hopefully Intel won’t do what they typically do – pull out too early because the first gen doesn’t meet sales targets/expectations, stupidly trash years of work and send us all back to square one.

  2. I really hope that Intel steps up its game (not because I like Intel, but because competition is always good for consumers), but right now I don’t see why would anyone get a A750 instead of a RTX 3060…

  3. Huh, I had thought reports were saying the A770 was competitive with the 3060. If it can begin to get into 3070 range while being much cheaper (which it will have to be with RTX 4000 and RX 7000 around the corner), Intel will be a decent spot.

    1. Intel would have a shot at something if their Arc GPUs were actually shipping rather than going from pre-launch/paper launch/hype/another paper launch – the only currently variant is the low-end mobile A320 from very few manufacturers.

      Once again, it shows Intel is its own worst enemy.
