Intel has published the first manufacturer benchmarks of the Intel Arc A770 at 1080p and 1440p with XeSS and ray tracing, which put the full configuration of the ACM G10 graphics processor with its 4,096 shader units from the first generation Intel Xe HPG (“Alchemist”) slightly above the GeForce on average See RTX 3060 (test) positioned.

After Intel demonstrated the first manufacturer benchmarks for the Intel Arc A750 in August, in which the Alchemist graphics card at 1080p and 1440p and in select games using the DirectX 12 and Vulkan graphics APIs scored 3 to 5 percent. cent compared to an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 was able to prevail, now it’s the turn of the next spearhead, the Intel Arc A770. This time, the focus is also on performance with ray tracing and Intel XeSS.

In 1080p against the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060

The graphics card placed at the top of the Arc portfolio competes against the GeForce RTX 3060 and its GA106 GPU with 3584 ALU FP32 with the following specifications.

Intel Arc A770 Limited Edition
  • Intel Xe HPG (“Alchemist”)
  • Intel ACM G10 GPU on TSMC 6N
  • 32 Xe cores with 4096 shader units
  • 16 GB 256-bit GDDR6 graphics memory
  • 225 Watt Power Consumption (“TGP”)

At 1080p with active ray tracing, Intel sees the Arc A770 about 14 percent ahead of Nvidia’s Ampere graphics card across 17 games on average, with Fortnite (+57 percent), Metro Exodus (+33 percent) and Hitman 3 (+26 percent) standing out noticeably.

A new beta driver is supposed to deliver up to 25 percent more performance from the Arc graphics card, as Intel only casually emphasizes in the benchmark presentation using the Ghostwire Tokyo ghost hunt as an example.

In 1440p with ray tracing and XeSS without competition

In addition to the ray-traced 1080p benchmarks, Intel has also released ray-traced 1440p benchmarks and internal AI-supported DLSS competitor XeSS, but these are shown without a competitor’s product. In Ghostwire Tokyo, which was tested once again with the new beta driver, performance should be able to more than double (+113%) using the XeSS “Performance” preset.

In addition to manufacturer benchmarks, which as always should be treated with caution, Intel is also announcing ray tracing support for Gotham Knights from DC Comics’ Batman universe, due for release on October 21, and providing further technical information. background on alchemist use of ray tracing.

With several games launching with ray tracing support on Arc GPUs over the next month, there is hope that Intel will have the Arc A770 and A750 on sale in this country by then.
