New benchmarks of the Intel Arc A770 & A550 Limited Edition cards surface online showing noticeable improvements
Earlier today, Twitter account Benchleaks published the latest performance figures for the Intel Arc A770 and A750 GPUs. The numbers come from the OpenCL and Vulkan tests that were run using Geekbench 5.4.5 on a Windows machine. These results were then laid down in an easy-to-read format by Wccftech and, with only 10 days left until the release of Intel's graphics cards, it's becoming clear that AMD and NVIDIA might want to adjust the prices of their mid-range offerings.
Today is not the first time we get to encounter benchmark results for Intel's upcoming Arc A770 and A750 video cards, and so those who have been keeping an eye on these results can easily conclude that the latest figures show a noticeable improvement over earlier results. The benchmarks took place on a fast computer with an Intel Core i9-12900KS processor and 32 GB DDR5-6400 memory installed on the ASUS ROG Maximus Z690 APEX motherboard.
The raw numbers are as follows (Intel Arc A770/A750):
- OpenCL: 99,482/88,828
- Vulkan: 73,636/66,609
A few months ago, the A770 engineering samples that were tested only managed to score up to 85,000 points in the aforementioned OpenCL tests, thus the latest results show an improvement of around 20 percent. This allows the Arc A770 to be faster by more than 3 percent when compared to the GeForce RTX 3060.
While these cards are no match for the high-end offerings currently on the market, their purpose is to grab a slice of the mainstream segment. Since the release of the Arc A770 and A750 is more than a week away, further tweaks and improvements of the drivers could push up the performance level of these cards even higher. Even at the present level, their prices are competitive: US$329 for the A770 (8 GB standard model, US$20 more for the 16 GB Limited Edition) and US$289 for the A750. Their close competitors from AMD are the RX 6700 XT (US$379) and RX 6650 XT (US$299). The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060, on the other hand, is supposed to start at US$329, but good luck finding it at that price.
