After unveiling the entry-level Arc 3 A380 discrete graphics cards earlier this year, Intel has finally unveiled the performance of its highly anticipated Arc 7 A750 Special Edition GPU that will directly compete with Nvidia's RTX 3060.
In a video posted on Youtube, Intel's Ryan Shrout tested the Arc 7 A750 card by playing Cyberpunk 2077 at a resolution of 2560 x 1400 with the high graphics setting. Performance reaches just under 60fps on average and is slightly better than Nvidia's Geforce RTX 3060.
We don't have any confirmed specifications yet, though recent rumors claim that the A750 Limited Edition comes with 24 Xe-Cores and 12GB of GDDR6 memory with a 192-bit memory bus.
The testbench of the Intel Arc A750 consisted of an Intel Core i9-12900K, an Asus ROG Maximus Z690 Hero motherboard, 32 GB of memory at 4,800 MT/s and a Corsair MP600 Pro XT 4 TB NVMe SSD, as well as Windows 11. A total of five games were tested, including:
- F1 2021
- Cyberpunk 2077
- Borderlands 3
All titles have been tested at 2560 x 1440 with "High" quality.
Among the five games, Intel's GPU delivered 13% higher performance on average, with an advantage ranging from 6% in Fortnite to 17% in F1 2021.
Of course, these are benchmarks made by Intel in a handful of games. We are also waiting for independent tests to get a more complete picture considering also the drivers: while AMD and Nvidia have optimized their drivers for many games in the last two decades, Intel's graphics drivers are still decidedly not mature yet.
Based on these results, if Intel manages to impose a price below $ 350 for this product, it will certainly be a success in terms of sales.
