Acer Predator BiFrost Arc A770 OC desktop GPU with 16 GB VRAM tested with current games
In addition to the known graphics card manufacturers Nvidia and AMD, Intel also introduced the Arc series of graphics cards already in the previous year. While Intel initially had some difficulties with the performance of the graphics cards, Intel was able to improve the performance capabilities in many games through continuous modifications of the driver. However, our test also shows that there are still some games that don't get along well with the Intel Arc A770.
Using the Acer Predator BiFrost Arc A770 OC as our test unit, we took a look at numerous synthetic benchmarks and also games and were positively surprised most of the time. With 16 GB of VRAM, the Acer Predator BiFrost Arc A770 OC is well equipped, while still costing much less than 400 Euros (~$422). Alternatively, you can also get Intel's current top model, the Arc A770, with 8 GB of VRAM. However, we would advise against this, since we were often able to exceed the 8-GB limit during our tests. Overall, the performance of the Intel Arc A770 can be compared with that of an Nvidia GeForce RTX 4060 or AMD Radeon RX 7600, both of which were only introduced to the market a few months ago. The time when Intel might present the successor to the Arc series is currently still pure speculation. But if the manufacturer will be able to improve the performance significantly and also increase the efficiency, it might continue to put some pressure on AMD and Nvidia. The hardware support of AV1 for encoding and decoding video content makes the Intel Arc graphics cards also well suited. AMD and Nvidia also offer this support, but only if we look at a model from the previous generation.
