Intel showcases impressive performance numbers with their ARC A750 and their latest ARC drivers
Intel latest "Game On" drivers for their ARC A-series GPUs are optimised for many of the latest game releases, including Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty and Destiny 2: Lightfall. With their new latest ARC drivers, Intel has also reported huge performance gains in Halo Infinite, which has received a 40% performance boost.
As time has moved forward, Intel's ARC A-series graphics cards have become more and more appealing to PC gamers, thanks to a steady stream of driver improvements/optimisations, frequently released "Game On" optimised drivers for new games, and a healthy price cut for their ARC A750.
In Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty, Intel has claimed below that their ARC A750 is notably faster than Nvidia's RTX 3060, despite being significantly more affordable. In performance per $, Intel has claimed that their ARC A750 is 84% more cost effective than Nvidia's RTX 3060 based on 1440p game performance. Simply put, that's incredible value, but with that value comes the pain that comes from being an early adopter.
Across a range of modern PC games, Intel has claimed that their ARC A750 offers gamers a stronger value proposition than Nvidia's RTX 3060, claiming to have 46%-84% performance per $ advantage.
In raw performance terms, Intel only claims that their ARC A750 "trades punches" with Nvidia's RTX 3060, which means that Intel's performance per dollar data only compares well with Nvidia's RTX 3060 because of Intel's low ARC pricing. In pricing terms, Intel's ARC A750 is an RTX 3050 competitor, but Intel wants to compare their product with Nvidia's more valuable RTX 3060.
With its low asking price, Intel's ARC A750 promises users strong driver support and a lot of value for money. Intel release four driver updates in February, which included day-0 support for nine new games. Intel are releasing new GPU drivers at a faster pace than AMD and Nvidia, which should highlight Intel's commitment to improving their ARC drivers and the performance of their ARC series graphics cards.
Intel is a newcomer to the GPU market, and that means that their ARC software and drivers are not as mature as their AMD or Nvidia counterparts. Intel ARC A-series GPU buyers are early adopters, and that means that Intel's ARC software has a lot of room for improvement. That means that ARC users may run into unexpected issues, and that ARC users should also expect their hardware to get better over time with new driver releases, optimisations, and software updates.
