The week before, Intel made the announcement that it will be launching the Arc A380, with the products initially being made accessible only in China. Today, a number of Chinese websites and users of various forms of social media decided to share with the rest of the world their unbiased third-party thoughts.
Before we are able to get our hands on our very own A380 at the Tom’s Hardware research labs, we have made the decision to take a more in-depth look at a video review that was published on Bilibili by a user who goes by the name of Shenmedounengce. In a word, Intel’s first Arc Alchemist desktop GPU probably won’t be able to substitute the best graphics cards, and it did far better in synthetic benchmarks than in the variety of games that were tested. The collection of titles that were assessed is available here.
This was a choice that was reasonable considering the demographic that the Arc A380 was created for, given that the user’s test platform that was used by the Bilibili users was on the more basic side. It is a computer with Windows 11 that has an Intel Core i5-12400 processor, 16 gigabytes of random access memory (RAM), a 1 terabyte solid state drive (SSD), and an Asus B660M motherboard. These requirements should be enough for supporting brand-new hardware like the Arc A380, for example. It would seem that the version of the product that was branded with the Gunnir name was the very first one to be made available for sale. The new hope from Intel was tested against the following rivals in the same system: a GTX 1650, an RX 6400, an RX 6500 XT, and an RTX 3050. The results showed that the new hope from Intel came out on top. The latest and greatest for Intel came out on top.
The Intel Arc A380 performed quite well in simulated benchmarks, besting all competitors with the exception of the RTX 3050 in Time Spy and Port Royal, although it struggled a little in Fire Strike, emerging victorious over only the GTX 1650. Those who were anticipating for an amazing Intel Arc debut were left disappointed by the lack of positive news after this development.
League of Legends, Grand Theft Auto V, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Forza Horizon 5, and Red Dead Redemption 2 were the six games that were evaluated in 1080p resolution, and the performance of Intel’s Arc A380 was consistently the worst across all of them. Forza Horizon 5 and Red Dead Redemption 2 were the other two games that were evaluated.
For your watching enjoyment, a video snapshot of the entire performance comparison for Red Dead Redemption 2 has been presented above for your consideration. This is an illustration of a fairly common kind of bar chart, which appears in all of the games in some form or another.
There is also a summary chart that includes all six games; however, this chart does not include the RX 6500 XT or the RTX 3050 since it does not include their much superior performance.
The above performance comparisons make it worthwhile to investigate the various underlying technologies, each of which has its own advantages and disadvantages.
