It seems that Intel has finally revealed the performance of the highly anticipated Arc 7 A750 Special Edition GPU. Intel posted a YouTube video today showing off the Arc 7 A750 Limited Edition, a desktop graphics card that will slot below the rumored Arc A770.
As shown in the video, Intel's Ryan Shrout tests the card by playing Cyberpunk 2077 at 2560 x 1400 resolution at the high graphics setting. As a result, it reaches 'just under 60 fps on average' and performs slightly better than Nvidia's Geforce RTX 3060.
As we can see from the Intel benchmarks, the A750 Limited Edition beats the RTX 3060 by 1.06x to 1.17x across various games, with F1 2021 giving Team Blue the biggest advantage.
Please keep in mind that this was a curated list, so not every game will perform better on Arc than on RTX 3060. Even Shrout admits that 'Arc's performance won't be the same in every game.'
Apart from a brief teaser video, Intel has not said much about the Intel Arc A750 Limited Edition. Though we don't have any confirmed specifications, recent reports claim the A750 Limited Edition has 24 Xe-Cores and 12GB of GDDR6 memory.
A working model of the Intel A750 Limited Edition was revealed for the first time at Gamers Nexus. This is a pretty long card with 8+6-pin PCIe power connectors. With a compact shape and clean aesthetic, the card is fairly attractive, despite not being blue.
Intel's Arc A750 Limited Edition and other desktop graphics cards are expected to launch soon, but given recent delays, I wouldn't hold my breath. During this time, the chipmaker will release videos, interviews, and blogs about Arc.
In other news, a Nikkei report claims Intel chip prices will rise this year. The company will increase the price of its flagship processors, as well as other chips, including those for Wi-Fi and connectivity.
Intel allegedly informed its customers about the price increases, which will likely result in high PC and laptop prices this holiday season. According to reports, some prices will rise by up to 20% due to inflation and rising labor costs.
Leading chip supplier TSMC says there is 'excess inventory in the semiconductor supply chain.' GPU prices are steadily declining, but an unlikely chip surplus cannot reduce PC and laptop prices.
