Intel started slow and targeted the mid-segment of GPU rather than the high-end stuff.

Arc graphics targets RTX 3060 and RTX 3050 segments with the Intel Arc A770 and A750 GPU performance

Surprisingly, the Intel Arc “Alchemist” GPU outperformed the RTX 3060 and Radeon RX 6600 XT. Especially in modern games that use the latest DX12 or Vulkan

Arc A770 is 13% faster in 1080p ultra and 18% faster in 1440p ultra gaming than RTX 3060.

Ray tracing performance in Intel Arc GPU is very impressive

In 1080p ray tracing, four games average, Intel Arc A770 gives a 13% gain over RTX 3060, whereas the Arc 750 is 10% slower

Shocking! Intel implemented ray tracing so well that it washed out Nvidia’s 2nd gen RT-core on RTX 3060. Even $289 Arc A750 is just 10% slower than $380 to $400 3060

Obviously, there are cautions regarding Intel Arc

1. Driver issues, Bugs, Glitches 2. Latest DX12 & Vulkan runs fantastic 3. Turn ON Resizable Bar for more FPS 4. Need time for maturity
