Intel A770/A550M now supported

Intel is finally supporting its flagship Arc Alchemist GPUs on mobile devices.

The latest 30.0.101.1743 BETA drivers for Intel ARC Alchemist desktop and mobile GPUs as well as Intel 12th Gen Core integrated Xe-LP GPUs now supports the fastest Arc GPUs including A770M and A550M. This means that all three ACM-G10 based mobile SKUs are now supported on laptops.

Intel is also adding new games to its Game On program (similar to NVIDIA Game Ready). These drivers support Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak, F1 22 and Arcadegeddon games on Arc GPUs.

Toggle for 3DMark optimizations

Furthermore, Intel finally adds the promised 3DMark optimizations toggle. In case you don’t remember, Intel launched its discrete GPU architecture with special architecture optimizations that boosted synthetic performance in software such as 3DMark. This is why we are seeing great results from Arc GPUs in this software, yet these cards perform much worse in games. Nevertheless, such benchmark-specific optimizations are against UL 3DMark rules, which is why all former Arc GPU tests were annotated as ‘not approved’.

Intel promised to provide a toggle in its Arc Control software that would disable said optimizations and allow Arc GPUs to perform a valid benchmark test. This was supposed to launch in April, but it took Intel another 2 months to finally enable this toggle.
