Intel has lifted the review embargo for its new Arc A750 and A770 graphics cards, and the first third-party gaming benchmarks have appeared online. And, according to the benchmarks, the high-end model is faster than the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060.
Going into more details, PCWorld reports that the Intel Arc A770 is faster than the RTX 3060 in most scenarios. One exception, though, is Cyberpunk 2077 in which the RTX 3060 is faster than the A770.
PCGamesHardware has reported that the Intel Arc A770 outperforms the RTX 3060 in Ray Tracing benchmarks. However, in DX11 games, Intel’s high-end GPU falls behind NVIDIA’s counterpart.
Tomshardware shows similar results. While the Arc A770 outperforms the RTX 3060 in multiple games, there are still some that run faster on NVIDIA’s hardware.
Lastly, HardwareUnboxed reports that its 12 games, the Intel Arc A770 is slower than the RTX3060 at 1080p. However, at 1440p, the A770 appears to be faster than the NVIDIA GPU.
All in all, these benchmarks fall in line with everything we’ve heard so far about these new GPUs. While they appear to be doing great in Ray Tracing benchmarks, they are lagging behind in DX11 games. Additionally, there are also some DX12 games that can run slower.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved – and still does – the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
