Intel's upcoming ARC Alchemist A770 graphics cards has appeared on Geekbench with a 2.4 GHz clock speed
Intel's entering the gaming segment of the discrete graphics card market later this year with their ARC Alchemist A-series of GPUs. Currently, Intel's ARC A-series is expected to launch this summer for desktop users, turning the GPU market into a three-horse race between AMD, Nvidia and Intel.
Thanks to @BenchLeaks, we can now look at an early Geekbench results page for Intel's ARC A770 graphics card, Intel's supposed gaming flagship. The graphics card has been listed as having 512 Execution Units (EUs), which is believed to be the largest configuration that Intel's Arc A-series will offer.
Intel's A770 has also been listed with a clock speed of 2400MHz and a device memory listing of 12.7GB. Currently, we believe that this graphics card has a total of 16GB of video memory in total and that Geekbench has incorrectly read the CPU's VRAM specifications.
Sadly, Intel's ARC A770 desktop graphics card achieved an OpenCL score of 85585 points, which is lower than other high-end graphics cards. These poor results could be due to unoptimized drivers, or power restrictions on early ARC Alchemist graphics cards. For context, a score of 85585 is consistent with what we would expect from a graphics card like Nvidia's RTX 2070.
At this time, Intel has not released any gaming performance data for their ARC Alchemist series of graphics cards, suggesting that Intel will not be able to compete with high-end GPU offerings from AMD or Nvidia.
Early Intel rumours suggested that their flagship ARC Alchemist series desktop graphics cards would only compete with AMD's Radeon RX 6700 XT and Nvidia's RTX 3070 graphics cards. This would place Intel's early desktop GPU offerings far below graphics cards like AMD's Radeon RX 6900 XT or Nvidia's RTX 3090 Ti.
