Before offering it to everyone in a couple of weeks, it has revealed more details about what to expect from the graphics cards in terms of specifications and performance. The A770 will have 32 Xe cores, 32 ray tracing units, and a graphics clock of 2100MHz. In terms of RAM, it comes in 8GB and 16GB configurations, with up to 512Gb/s and 560Gb/s of bandwidth. memory, respectively.
As for the A750, which Intel just announced will start at $289, has 28 Xe cores, 28 ray tracing units, a 2050MHz graphics clock, 8GB of memory, and up to 512Gb/s bandwidth. memory band. All three cards, which will be available on October 12, have 225W of total power.
Intel claims that based on benchmark tests, you’ll get more bang for your buck with these cards than NVIDIA’s mid-range. It says that the A770 offers 42 percent more performance per dollar compared to the RTX 3060, while the A750 is apparently 53 percent better per dollar.
He claims that, in most of the games he tested, the A770’s 16GB configuration delivered better ray tracing performance than the similarly priced RTX 3060 (which, to be fair, ). when it came to Intel says that the A770 had 1.56 times the ray tracing performance of the RTX 3060.
Of course, Intel will promote its GPUs as being better than the competition. We’ll have to wait for the results of our own Intel Arc benchmark tests to get a real idea of performance.
In any case, it looks like NVIDIA is about to have more competition on the GPU front. Only this time, it’s from an established brand that just so happens to be after powerhouse PCs that might otherwise have used NVIDIA cards.
