A battle of Intel DG2-128EU graphics cards

APISAK discoveres benchmark results for both desktop and mobile graphics cards based on the same Intel Arc GPU.

Everything suggests that Intel will be releasing its low-end DG2-128EU graphics processor first. Thus far there have been no leaks that would confirm higher-end DG2-512EU graphics card naming, but there were multiple leaks featuring either ARC A380 or ARC A370M models, both said to feature the exact same GPU configuration but serving either desktop or mobile markets.

APISAK has now found performance figures of both variants in the SiSoftware Sandra database. Specifically, the “GPU Processing” benchmark results have as many as four sub-tests, such as half-float, single-float, double and quad-float processing.  There is a small variation here, but on average the desktop A380 SKU is 23% faster than A370M. This is likely because the mobile variant is downclocked and power-limited for laptops.

With such performance, both cards are on GeForce GTX 1650 series level, which is not the fastest card on the market, but at least Intel ARC will come with raytracing acceleration and with support for Intel XeSS super-resolution tech.

The A380 and A370M are the lowest-end cards in the Intel Arc lineup. They are to feature up to 4GB of GDDR6 memory attached to a 64-bit memory bus. As per leaked specs, DG2-128EU based models are also to use 14 Gbps memory chips, while the rest of the lineup would have faster 16 Gbps memory. However, this might refer to the mobile variant as far as we know.

Intel is yet to confirm the exact launch date for its Arc GPUs. There is no doubt that the DG2-128EU graphics card will be the first to launch though. Either way, there are only 2 months left.
