Intel has revealed some of the details of their upcoming Arc desktop GPUs recently. The new information has only added to the buzz. The Arc A770 will have 32 ray-tracing units, 32 Xe cores, and a 2,100 MHz graphics clock. The GPU will come out into variants one of 8 Gigs and the other one will be 16Gigs. It will include memory bandwidth ranging from 512 Gbs to 560 Gbs. The A770 is priced at USD 329 and is set to the GPU market by storm.
The other GPU unit- A750 is also a beast of a GPU. It has 2,050 MHz graphics clock, 28 ray-tracing units, and 8Gigs of memory with memory bandwidth up to 512 Gigs. Including this and the other 2 variants of the A770, it makes 3 new GPUs that will be released on October 12.

Intel says the new Arc A770 and A750 GPUs are more powerful than NVIDIA’s RTX 3060
If Intel’s claims turn out true, then we will receive a more powerful graphics card than NVIDIA’s mid-range GeForce RTX 3060. However, this is based on their own standards. How it fares with NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 3060 remains to be seen. According to these standards, the A770 will offer 42% better performance on the dollar when compared to the RTX 3060 and the A750 will be 53% better on the dollar when compared to the same.
Intel also claimed that when tested against the RTX 3060 while playing Fortnite the A770 had 1.56 times the ray tracing performance. This was for the 16GB variant of the A770. This is certainly better. Buyers will get their money’s worth. However, the only thing is that The RTX 3060 is actually almost a year old.
This might be Intel’s marketing strategy to portray these new GPUs as NVIDIA killers. The actual performances of the GPUs will only be out when the users get their hands on them and that remains to be seen. But NVIDIA certainly has some more competition in the mid-range GPU market and as we all know Intel is already an established name in the market.
