Intel is pricing their new Arc A750 graphics card aggressively at just $290. In our review we ran extensive tests and can confirm that it offers decent performance for 1080p and 1440p gaming. It encounters strong competition though from AMD and NVIDIA, who have several products in this price range.

Will have to wait for couple of months for drivers to catch up, otherwise might consider these for video decoding/encoding work.

The title of this review seems at odds with the content and conclusion. Sorry, but I'm just not seeing the value versus similarly priced alternatives.

I was expecting that the 770 will be couple percent faster than the 3060ti oh well.
Hopefully Intel continues to push and develop those drivers and architecture.

@W1zzard very interesting review maybe can make a test with DXVK (mostly used for linux users and can play many DX9-10-11 titles) and works on windows too

Vulkan-based implementation of D3D9, D3D10 and D3D11 for Linux / Wine


Maybe can make a test on linux

:)

There's quite some mistakes in Conclusion:
1. Only available in China - just copy&paste from A380
2. Intel is pricing the Arc A750 at 16 GB at $290
3. RTX 2060/Ti/2070/Ti - 2060 Ti and 2070 Ti don't exist, they were Super

Welcome to the forums! Thanks! Should all be fixed. There's only A750 8 GB (not 16 GB)

Beta product being priced good on paper - makes kind of sense, though I'd give it some more time.

Agreed with catulitechup's comment above, it would be interesting to see how it performs with DXVK, especially in titles like Borderlands 3 where performance was very poor. Also, any idea on why performance seems to scale better than other GPUs at higher resolutions? At 1440p in that title it's basically at the same level of the RTX 2060 and 3050. Is it because of the CPU bottleneck issue that you've mentioned?

Lastly I wonder if the anomalously high energy consumption on idle might get improved with some driver updates.

I think that is easily explained when you look at the transistor count and memory bandwidth of the Arc 750/770 when compared to its midrange competitors. Arc has basically double the resources as a 6600/3060, twice the memory bandwidth and twice the transistor count. At higher resolutions, the 6600/3060 become bandwidth limited, whereas the Arc 750/770 appears to be struggle more with the drivers making efficient use of the shader resources it has which is impacted less by resolution than memory bandwidth limitations.

Intel is basically selling 6800/3080 class hardware for 6600/3060 prices because that is where it performs. The benefit is that performance scales with resolution like a 6800/3080, but obviously even with that scaling, the issue of whether the Arc 750/770 offers playable experience at higher resolutions remain.

Right, so either the performance will continue to improve over time with driver updates resulting in this being a great value, or the architecture is just not efficient for gaming. Will be interesting to see.

Is the "Highly Recommended" award based on the assumption that one day these cards will have decent drivers?

There's no way the current experience is recommendable to a regular end user..

The current experience is fine, unlike when I tested A380 ... anything in particular that you're concerned with?

Did you have any trouble with monitor compatibility where it simply doesn’t output to the monitor? I had this problem with the a380 hence why I returned it. And gamers nexus had this problem with both the a380 and a770.

Right, I vaguely remember getting this once and I reseated the card and used HDMI and it worked, also with DP after that

Thank you. My issue was it only worked intermittently on one monitor and not on 3 others. I think mine was just defective lol.
