Gaming performance for the Arc A750 is already improving like a new fine wine as Intel shows how there’s more to be had for the budget GPU. A new blog post for the latest Game On Driver made for Total War: Warhammer III Mirror of Madness shows off the $250 GPU surpassing the $388 NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 12 GB in it along with improved performance in a number of other games. The latest driver sees the Arc A750 besting the RTX 3060 by as much as 10% in 1080p/1440p for the new title but in doing so puts the rival budget card square in its sights for the performance per dollar metric where its lead grows even more dramatically.
“Intel Arc GPUs fear no chaos and are mighty enough to handle the battles of epic proportions in Mirror of Madness. The Intel Arc A750 is 10% faster than the RTX 3060 in Total War: Warhammer III’s Vortex benchmark, making for 72% more performance per dollar.”
The good news doesn’t stop there with the new driver as it also provides launch-ready support for Boundary, Dead Island 2, and Minecraft Legends. Intel continues to drive home its performance value point vs the RTX 3060 with these new games. It should be noted that the RTX 3060 12 GB model was recently seen as the most popular graphics card on Steam so it’s no surprise that Intel is targeting the budget card in its attempt to sway potential buyers over to the Arc A750.
Lastly, Intel shows how Driver 4311 improves performance for the Dead Space remake as well as ray tracing performance in DIRT 5, Metro Exodus Enhanced Edition, F122, and Deathloop. Intel does note in the fine print that performance will vary and it has already been said previously that the ARC line of graphics cards can better perform on newer platforms that support Resizable Bar so not everyone is likely to see such gains but that doesn’t mean they won’t either. Regardless, it is impressive still to witness such a low-cost card perform ray tracing at ~60 FPS in 1080p and 1440p.
