Intel’s Arc A7 GPUs: A770 and A750, are scheduled to launch on October 12. With just over a week to go until the official release, several benchmark reports are popping up on the internet. The new graphics cards will also feature Intel’s latest XeSS DP4a technology.
The first benchmark results for the Intel Arc A770 and A750 Limited Edition GPUs have appeared on the Geekbench site.
The graphics cards were tested with two graphics APIs: OpenCL and Vulkan. Only the latter indicated the true performance potential of the GPUs, which might make more sense once we get full detailed reviews.
The A770 scored 73536 points in the Vulkan test, while the A750 scored 66609 points. Thus, the A770 is 10.4% better than the latter.
In the OpenCL test, the difference between A770 and A750 is quite similar at 12%. The A770 got a score of 99482 and the A750 a score of 88828.
The A770 Limited Edition GPU used includes 16 GB of VRAM and 512 Xe Vector Engines or 4096 FP32 cores, while the tested A750 consists of 8 GB of VRAM and 448 Vector Engines or 3584 FP32 cores. Both cards were tested with ASUS ROG Z690 Apex & Core i9-12900KS system.
The A750 is a low-end graphics card with an MSRP of $289. The A770 will come in two memory variants: 16GB and 8GB, priced at $349 and $329, respectively.
Here is a comparison of Intel Arc GPU scores with other leading graphics cards:
The A770 outperformed the RTX 3060 in both tests, while the A750 failed to match the RX 6700 XT in the API Vulkan test. However, the cards should perform better in modern APIs such as DirectX12.
Upcoming reviews with 3DMark benchmark reports and gaming tests will give us more insight into the actual performance of the Intel Arc cards.
