Intel Arc A7 GPUs in Geekbench tests
Over at Geekbench website, first benchmark results featuring Intel Limited Edition of Arc desktop cards have emerged.
Both cards were tested with two graphics APIs: Vulkan and OpenCL. Only the first APU could give us a hint on actual performance that may somehow translate to raw gaming power, but for the final conclusions we may need to wait another few days for full reviews.
The A770 tested is the Limited Edition with 16GB of VRAM and all 512 Xe Vector Engines (or 4096 FP32 cores). It was tested alongside A750 featuring 8 GB of VRAM and 448 Vector Engines (3584 FP32 cores). Both cards have appeared on Geekbench website installed in ASUS ROG Z690 Apex & Core i9-12900KS system.
The A770 scored 73536 points in Vulkan test, while A750 managed reached 66609 points, which means a 10.4% difference between both cards.
In OpenCL test, the difference between A770 and A750 is again in the very similar range at 12% in favor of the full ACM-G10 model.
Overall, the A770 appears to trade places with RTX 3060 in both tests, while the A750 struggles to match RX 6700 XT in Vulkan. Intel promised that their cards will be faster in modern APIs such as DirectX12 and Vulkan, so we expected slightly better results here at least.
In any case, full reviews will be posted next week with more meaningful 3DMark tests and of course actual gaming tests, which will tell us the full story.
