Intel has published a new article about real-time ray tracing on Arc Graphics, and it includes benchmarks that demonstrate how the Arc A770 supposedly fares against the competition with the demanding technology enabled under select resolutions.
According to the benchmarks, the Arc A770 can beat NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 3060 in 1080p with ray tracing enabled in quite a number of today’s more popular titles, including Fortnite, which is seen running around 56% faster under Intel’s option. A roundup of the numbers shared by VideoCardz suggest that the Arc A770 is 14% faster than the GeForce RTX 3060 on average at 1080p gaming with ray tracing active.

Intel also shared another set of benchmarks that show how Arc A770 might perform with ray tracing and XeSS enabled under the Balanced and Performance settings at 1440p resolution with a handful of games that include Hitman 3 and Shadow of the Tomb Raider.
Intel’s technology deep dive on Arc A-Series ray tracing can be viewed in its entirety below. It includes the confirmation that Gotham Knights will support ray tracing acceleration with Arc GPUs when it launches on October 21, although it’s unclear whether high-end Arc models will be on sale by that time.
