With a disappointing launch, the passage of time is putting Intel Arc GPUs in their placeand a new case of this is the Intel Arc A770. We have talked many times about Arc A750a graphics card that already competes in terms of performance with the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti at a significantly lower price. Now, the drivers, and the price adjustments, have made it AMD cannot compete on equal terms with Intel. Of course, in the mid-range market.
It has been in China, where the popular local store JD, you can already find the Intel Arc A770 8GB at the same price as the AMD Radeon RX 7600. This is quite interesting, when it is in China where the Radeon RX 7600 has already reached a minimum price of 293 dollars to change (vs 300 dollars of launch). For its part, the Intel GPU costs practically the same: 295 dollars to change. Perhaps most interesting of all is that, at the same price, the Intel Arc A770 is in the running as the best option in most games.
Intel Arc A770 vs AMD Radeon RX 7600
In most Triple A titles, at 1080p resolution, the Intel Arc A770 outperforms the AMD Radeon RX 7600. Where only the AMD GPU shows itself superior, it is in two eSport games: Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and Apex Legends. In The Witcher 3, Atomic Heart, and Metro Exodus, Intel wins. With Diying Light AMD narrowly wins.
When do we go at 2K resolutionIntel’s GPU wins in almost all tests: Control and The Witcher 3 save it. At 4K resolutionthe Intel Arc A770 win in all tests. Despite being 4K, the performance is quite good. And more if we consider that you can buy an Intel Arc A770 with 16GB of VRAM. In essence, the Intel Arc A770 allows you to play most of the games tested at +60FPS at 4K.
Poor performance of the AMD Radeon RX 7600 as the resolution is increased it has to do with memory. Its poor memory interface 128 bit, together with the marketing of 32 MB Infinity Cache, is not enough to provide a good bandwidth to play 2K or 4K. This differs greatly from the Intel Arc A770. While it doesn’t have Infinity Cache, it does at least have a memory interface of 256 bit. Specifically, the Intel Arc achieves a bandwidth of 512GB/sregarding the poor 288GB/s of the AMD GPU. This is the reason why as the resolution is increased, the Intel GPU appears more superior.
Intel GPUs are currently the best GPUs for budget gamers
The Intel Arc offer more performance for less price than its direct rivals. To this is added that performance with Ray Tracing does not penalize you as it does happen to AMD, what’s more, it grows. If we add to that that it has rescaling technology Intel XeSS, which is more of a competitor to NVIDIA DLSS than to AMD FSR… Well, it’s clear that it’s a good option for both the present and the future. Still Intel is getting more juice out of its Alchemist architectureso there is still unknown room for improvement for these GPUs to continue to stand out more.
