      @Jonny Makers the current most used gpu on steam is the 1060, when thinking “competitive” you need to take in account what the average consumer will pay for
      In, let’s say 2 years, how many people do you think will own a 4090 vs a 1660ti?

    Honestly, I think that Intel has done a great job so far with their GPUs, though they're not as good as the competitors, at such a low price I'm pretty sure they beat out everyone, to be honest. Not to mention this was literally their first time making a stand-alone GPU, I think that there's a lot of promise in these new cards.

      @Lol Veratus I think that nvidia cards getting cheaper can only happen if power consumption goes way down, and I think nvidia has to have that power consumption to have an edge on amd this year (rdna 3). And if people don't buy the expensive ones… But people do. I wanna see lovelace performance under a mucn lower power target, that's where the money's at.

    I'm willing to give ARC GPUs a go when they launch, I did the same when swapping from a 2060 to an RX 6600 just out of curiosity. Plus unlike Nvidia and AMD it is within my budget with seemingly great performance. Glad we've got red team, green team and finally blue team in the market for the true RGB experience

    The fact that the Linux drivers were merged into the latest mainline release is not too surprising. That's how all new features hit the mainline, and usually precedes backports to the stable branch. It's quite likely you'll see driver support in various distro vendor kernels with versions lower than 6.0 as they do hardware enablement updates.

      @Serra McCall The fact that DX11 performance is so much worse than DX12 and Vulkan suggests that driver performance is a really big part of the problem, though. DX11 is very dependent on driver optimization.

    The Arc 770 gives me big throwback vibes to 750ti. It wasn't the best card but you got a huge bang for your buck in comparison to their top of the line gpus at the time. It may not get taken seriously as a flagship card but for slightly less than 300 it could be a great card for a First Build.

  • G P

    I fully expect the drivers to improve over time. The issue is how long that will take. Intel needs to put as many people on it as it can to make the process as fast as it can. One thing to keep in mind is that while a 3rd GPU maker is great for gamers, competition wise, Intel also jumped back into the dGPU market more so because of GPGPU/ML and nvidia pushing it's GPUs in servers which was hurting Intels Xeon business, on top of what AMD was doing. Long story short, I don't see them leaving the GPU market anytime soon, even if this first gen hardly sells at all.

    I have a 2060 now and have been pretty happy with it, even still, but when the 770 is back in stock at MSRP I’m pretty sure I’ll go ahead and get it. A few hundred bucks is well worth it to me to breed further competition.

    Suggestion: when making charts keep the color scheme the same for teams. You started with green for Nvidia and blue for Intel. And then blue was I believe avg fps against red and yellow. Considering it's a video and we would have to pause every time you show something to look at it, it would be great if you could make the charts a bit more consistent and digestible for dummies non chart nerds like myself. They're quite simple which is great, but could be improved upon with some coherence.
    Or release them as images somewhere else so we can look at them separately. Either way thanks.
    Glad Arc isn't that bad. But I wonder for the 3 and 5 series performance. I also still have doubts if ALL arc require 12th Gen or select ryzen chips or that was just for the 7 series (maybe you say this on video but copying message on mobile is bugged and I can't save it to keep watching).

    The 3070 is still an incredibly powerful card. I have a 2070 in my laptop and it plays just about every game I'm playing with max or near-max graphics, usually in the 40-60 fps range. A 3070-equivalent for less than $300 is amazing, especially if we can link them with something akin to nVidia's SLI system.
    1140 is nice in theory, and it'd be great to have a cheap card that could hit those resolutions w/ high FPS, but for the purposes of actual gameplay I find that the 1080 to 1440 jump rarely offers enough extra detail to justify the framerate hit. That may just be me, but I'm perfectly fine sticking to 1080p at 60fps or better. The games still look great, they play great, and I don't have to spend an arm and a leg to get them working.

    Some video recommendations:
    To the editing staff: Can you please briefly highlight/flash/outline the card being reviewed when you put up the bar chart? This can help quickly orient the audience to what to look for.
    To the lab staff: Can you also test these cards for non-gaming uses? Namly can it handle being fully/over loaded with monitors? Does it crash if you unplug/replug the monitors (as when someone is troubleshooting their setup)? How does this work with folding@home or boinc@home projects?

      @Pavel Pivovarov Card for card, the worst thing going for Intel is buggy drivers. AMD faced this years ago with their GCN cards. I haven't read a reviewer that didn't have glitches with Intel ARC somewhere in the review process.
      This tell me that many games throughout your play may experience some type of glitch or performance issue before completion. Gamers are basically beta testers.
      To me this is a no-go, regardless of Intel's performance. Then the fact that you can get AMD cards that equal or improve performance at lower prices makes Intel ARC a definite "No"
      I don't appreciate these ESclips influencers (Intel lovers) reviewing ARC not emphasizing the frustration of gaming, or encoding video with a glitchy card. You'll be pulling your hair out your entire time of ownership. They almost never get the drivers completely right before their next generation of cards. You will simply be waiting for driver updates with bated breath just to be disappointed.

      @Pavel Pivovarov Again, I was only explaining, buyers today looking for a graphics card, between the three manufacturers. It's not fair to say that AMD was forcing buyers to buy a new motherboard with PCIE5.
      Any of the 2000 and 3000 series cards suitable to Intel ARC performance comparison contains the same PCIe4 slot compatibility.
      ARC is cleaning up fast enough to compare with AMD's future cards which will require PCIe5. 5
      I didn't mention RDNA1 because most entry level buyers today will find the performance and price they're looking for in AMD's current cards. No reviewers on youtube are comparing it to RDNA1 cards.

      @Gary B oh, I've got your point, but honestly it doesn't feel like Intel is delivering up to RTX3000/RX6000 though, and more inline with older RX5000 series instead.
      I understand that AI cores, RT and PCIE5 makes them look like current AMD gen, but that seems like more AMD's issue rather than Intel's win. Both RT and AI cores were the RTX2000 line features, and A770 seems to be targeted to RTX2070 rather than RTX3060 (judging by the name and performance).
      PCIE5 also doesn't benefit Intel GPUs as they wouldn't be bus limited even on PCIE3x16 anyways.

    By looking at the transistor count and process node there is very high probability that in a year or two as Intel optimize and stabilize their driver stack they will extract excellent performance from ARC.
    Edit: bunch of additional points based on below replies
    => Yes Game engines also will be optimized for ARC as time goes. This is classic chicken egg problem. Game engine devs can't spend time until there is at least average ARC customers.
    => Being a software dev I'm very much aware about how complex graphics driver stack can be. I would definitely give credit to Intel of bringing at least this level of stability for the brand new product which is directly trying to bite 3070 territory.
    =>Doesn't matter how much money u through at driver development teams it's gonna take its time to stabilize. This is time problem not a money problem.
    => Nvidia and AMD will also move up but who said Intel won't move up. Once their driver stack is solid launching new stable products will be lot easier for them.

They don't have much experience in coding and Matlab is probably the only thing they'll bother to use. A lot of them will be following some guide they found online so if most of the material out there uses CUDA, CUDA will be what they use.

And I think it's not just me given how dominant CUDA is. There are a lot of academics who care about open-source but there are also a lot who just want something that allows them to meet their publication KPIs. It'd be great if OpenCL vs CUDA can end like how Freesync did with Gsync, but I'm not sure if that'll be anytime soon.
      Having more open systems for research and laboratory testing is definitely a good thing. There is also a similar issue in medical devices. Vendors are locking off their products and making massive margins because most of the users in these spaces are funded by governments and multinationals.

    Ten to fifteen years ago if you told someone you paid over 1,000 dollars for a video card they’d probably laugh because it’s absolutely absurd. It’s still absurd it’s just that people have grown to accept it for some reason.

      They did not compare it to the 6600 xt and 6650 xt which is actually better similarly priced to the ARC gpus, the actual competition of these gpus.

      I remember buying a 7970Ghz Edition for like 400€ just a month after it dropped. To this day, it was my favourite tech purchase of all time. I'm still sad it was one of the victims of my power supply going up in flames. I then bought the EVGA 1070 which I still use to this day. But even back then in 2016 you could feel the rise in prices. 499$ msrp for a top tier card in 2012 and 4 years later it was already 599$ for the 1080...

    I’m really looking forward to them announcing a real gpu. This is promising. We need someone to take nvidia down.
