the Intel Arc Graphics Cards, especially on the desktop segment, hasn’t fared too well in gaming tests so far. A new Intel Arc driver update brings some relief and improves performance by up to 80 percent.
Intel Arc driver update brings numerous improvements
New Intel Arc driver update to version v3959 aims to improve gaming performance according to the manufacturer improve up to 80 percent. Older games in particular benefit from the enhancement that runs on top of DirectX 9; Until now, Intel’s focus has been primarily on modern DirectX 12 and Vulkan titles.
Precisely here it could compete with the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 in terms of performance, so now older games should also get more performance.
Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, League of Legends, Starcraft 2 and other titles should benefit more from the new driver in 108op resolution and in QHD or 1440p. In CS:GO in particular, the refresh rate almost doubles. Here the performance increases by 79 percent.
At least Intel shows this in a graphic using the example of the Intel Arc A770, but the A750 and A380 should also be able to benefit from the Intel Arc driver update. “Less than two months after launch, we’re delivering up to 1.8x performance on select DX9 titles,” Intel said.
In addition, work continues on improving gaming performance and general driver improvements, which are scheduled for release in 2023. Especially in the notebook segment, distribution with Intel Arc is gaining momentum. Here, too, Intel introduced the Intel Arc Mobile Chipsthat later on the new laptops from Lenovo or, for example, the HP Specter x360 16 found uses.
