Intel Arc Graphics Cards GPUs are said to be improving in performance. But the A770 still seems to suffer from driver quirks and subtle frame rates.
The Intel Arc Graphics Cards was introduced last month. But the graphics card series ultimately failed to cut through the noise of the Nvidia RTX 4000, the Alchemist GPU lineup. While delivering decent performance for the price, was initially plagued by driver issues that caused a bit of a stir.
Thanks to post-launch updates, the A770’s performance appears to have improved, but the card’s software still remains finicky.
Across the Intel Arc A7 GPU review boards, the consensus is that this GPU range offers decent performance per dollar. But there is no denying that the software is a drawback. For the most part, this card is beating up against the RTX 3060, with driver bugs affecting performance more in DirectX 11 games.
Now that the Intel Arc Alchemist has had a month to find its footing. PCWorld has decided to dive back into the benchmarking waters. A new video puts the A770 back on its paces, and the card appears to be capable of even more fps than before the DX11 release.
Increasing the Resolution
Specifically, Total War: Troy has improved from 91 fps at launch to 108 fps. Increasing the resolution from 1080p to 1440p increases the frame rate from 81fps to 88fps, closing the gap.
Horizon: Horizon: Zero Dawn and Cyberpunk 2077 also played a little more comfortably at A770. Showing frame rate improvements of 10% and 5% at 1080p, respectively.
When upped to 1440p, results were mixed, with CP2077 showing a slight. Framerate improvement and Horizon showing no change compared to the benchmark at launch.
Horizon.ZeroDawn and Cyberpool: Horizon: Zero Dawn and Cyberpunk 2077 were also slightly more comfortable at A770, showing frame rate improvements of 10% and 5% at 1080p respectively.
When we bring it up to 1440p, CP2077’s frame rate improves slightly, while Horizon remains unchanged from the benchmark at launch.
