Intel shared a video showing the performance of the Arc A750 GPU, whose internal benchmarks show it outpacing the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060. The gaming PC giant’s own tests include expected fps for games like F1 2021, Cyberpunk 2027, Control, and Fortnite. It seems to run faster on the blue team’s desktop graphics card.
In the new Intel Arc GPU showcase video, Marketing Manager Ryan Shrout sits down with colleague Tom Petersen to discuss the A750’s performance. Petersen calls the upcoming SKU the company’s “second-largest” GPU, while saying it will be an “amazing performance story per dollar.” The duo then went on to try out Control on a desktop card, showing off its settings and frame rate at the same time.
Demos show that the Intel Arc A750 can boost fps above 60 at high settings at 1440p. We can expect performance in the 60-70fps range, Petersen said, calling it “the type of experience you’d expect from a high-performance GPU.”
The four-minute clip also includes some RTX 3060 comparisons, with the benchmark putting the Arc A750 ahead of the GeForce GPU. Taking F1 2021, Cyberpunk 2027, Control, Borderlands 3 and Fortnite as examples, the blue team said the card could increase framerates by up to 17% in “optimized” games.
Petersen said Intel Arc optimizations will be a “journey of a lifetime” for some releases, but said the company is committed to making games that have been around for 20 years. This shows that some of our favorite Steam games can finally run well on Arc GPUs, even though performance is currently erratic.
Ultimately, the video showcases Intel’s commitment to its Arc launch, even as its first-gen offering is on par with the upcoming RTX 4000 and RDNA 3 GPUs. If the blue team can establish a graphics benchmark that can at least compete with current-generation GeForce cards, Intel could be a suitable runner in the race for the best graphics card to come, even if cancellation rumors and a lack of availability overshadow the lineup’s debut.
