Intel Arc A730M: Triple-A gaming benchmark results leak for 1080p and 1440p resolutions
Gaming benchmark data for the Intel Arc A730M has surfaced online, following the publication of 3DMark benchmarks for the same graphics card. Shared on Weibo by user Golden Pig Upgrade Pack (machine translated), the gaming benchmark data of the Arc A730M paints an impressive picture like the aforementioned 3DMark results, which had Intel's graphics card competing with the RTX 3070 and the Radeon RX 6700M.
As the screenshots below show, Golden Pig Upgrade Pack has shared screenshots of benchmark results in Assassin's Creed: Odyssey, Metro Exodus and F1 2020, all at 1080p and 1440p with high graphics settings enabled. According to these results, the Arc A730M averaged the following FPS at 1080p and 1440p:
- Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey: 38 FPS - 1080p/32 FPS - 1440p
- Metro Exodus: 70 FPS - 1080p/55 FPS - 1440p
- F1 2020: 123 FPS - 1080p/95 FPS - 1440p
According to our database, the RTX 3060 and RTX 3070 average higher FPS in F1 2020 when set to 1080p and higher graphics settings. However, the Arc A730M outscores the RTX 3060 at 1440p and is within 4 FPS of the RTX 3070. A similar tale is true in Metro Exodus, where the Arc A730M outperforms the RTX 3060 at 1440p and averages the same 55 FPS as the RTX 3070. Dropping the resolution to 1080p results in 10 FPS and 17 FPS leads for the RTX 3060 and RTX 3070 over the Arc A730M, respectively.
Unsurprisingly, the Arc A730M handles F1 2020 and Metro Exodus better than the RTX 2070 at 1080p and 1440p. Unfortunately, we do not have enough benchmark data to provide comparisons against current-generation AMD graphics cards, nor do we have comparable data for Assassin's Creed: Odyssey. Still, these benchmark results suggest that the Arc A730M should operate between RTX 3050 and RTX 3070 performance levels but perhaps with a 92 W TGP. As VideoCardz notes, it is unclear whether Intel Dynamic Tuning Technology (DTT) kicked in at any point, which would have reduced FPS somewhat. Hopefully, Intel gets its drivers in order sharpish, as there are likely some performance gains to be had in that regard too.
