asrock formally announced its partnership with Intel to launch a Arc A380 with Custom design,…
The graphics cards of Intelthe Arc Alchemist, are being the subject of news for various reasons, although it is generally due to criticism of their performance and drivers. And it is that among several promises from Intel, we have that the Arc will reach the market being competent. As for controllers, this does not seem to be the case, because in a review of Gamer Nexus this has found 43 problems with the drivers of the Intel Arc.
When we see reports from Intel about their graphics division, they are going to defend the incredible performance that offer their Arc in games. Of course, they claim that they are a great option for their price and that is where Intel should be the most competent. Since their Arc GPUs currently perform much less in games with old APIs What DirectX 11. And what to say, that others like DirectX9 are not supported natively, while in games with vulkan Y DirectX 12 they do offer better performance. To all this we must add the drivers used by the Intel Arc GPUs, which are still very green and have numerous problems.
Gamers Nexus analyzes the drivers of the Intel Arc A380 and finds 43 bugs
As we know, the Intel Arc, specifically the A380were initially launched in the chinese market, which is why we don’t have those graphics here, although a Custom model can already be seen in the US. Still, this is Intel’s first dedicated GPU in many years, and more importantly, a new competitor for amd Y NVIDIA. For this reason, the hype was very high at the beginning, but it is dissipating due to the numerous errors, bugs and problems that they present.
The latest blow to Intel and the status of its Arc drivers has come via popular YouTuber Gamers Nexus, who reviewed the game. GUNNIR A380 Photon. During this, he analyzed all the problems that he presented and came to count a total of 43 bugs in the drivers of the Intel Arc GPU. A disaster, because if the launch of these graphics had been worldwide, Intel would have been demolished based on criticism. Between the problems found in the controllers of Arc GPUs we have:
- Corruption image when using Smooth Sync
- Intel Arc Control stops working and freeze
- The Intel Driver Update Application crashes
- flickering (blink) when playing various games
- Incorrect voltage values when performing overclockgenerating errors
- installation problems of controllers and drivers within the application
Arc drivers are broken, although they claim to have fixed more than 20 bugs
If we can take something positive from all this, it is that the Gamers Nexus review has reached Intel and this has confirmed the existence of those 43 problems. In fact, Lisa Pearce, vice president of Intel’s Visual Computing Group, used this video as a reference to announce their fixes. Thus, she ensures that the Intel team fixed 4 of these driver problems to end of july And since then, they haven’t stopped. In fact, he admits that have fixed 21 issues user interface with your drivers on August 19.
These also included Day 0 compatibility with Saint’s Row, Madden NFL 23they fixed the crashes of stray and Smooth Sync corruptions, among others. They also admit how poorly their Arc control works, the software of the Intel Arc that allows you to install driver packages, among other things. So the solution they want to come up with is to consolidate all the Arc software into one package, to avoid further problems with Arc Control. It’s expected to arrive as a combo pack later this year, where Intel promises that there won’t be any issues with installers.
