Intel is lowering expectations for the upcoming Arc A750 Limited Edition GPU. The chipmaker provided us with an insight into the card’s mediocre performance in a new three-minute-long video.

Before we continue, it’s crucial to remember that the A750 is one of Intel’s top-of-the-line GPUs. In the video, Intel’s Ryan Shrout boots up Cyberpunk 2077 on a computer with the A750 GPU installed, and jumps right to performance.

Shrout asserts that the card averages just under 60 frames per second (FPS) with the game set at high-quality settings and 2560×1440 resolution. You’d expect more from Intel’s entry into the dedicated graphics card market.

Next, Shrout displays benchmark results, demonstrating how the card compares against the base-level Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060. The Intel Arc A750 performs 1.06 to 1.15 times better than the RTX 3060 on games like Cyberpunk 2077, F1 2021, Control, Borderlands 3, and Fortnite.

Coming this summer

The Arc A750 won’t perform this well in all games, but Shrout emphasizes that these benchmark tests provide a good overview of what Arc is capable of with the correct software engineering. 

All in all, Intel’s initial demonstration isn’t that impressive. It’s impossible to truly judge a card’s performance until it’s put to the test by third parties, meaning the actual release could go either way. The Arc A750 GPU is scheduled to debut later this summer.
