The Flagship Intel Arc GPU RTX 3060 competitor will be released very soon ...

The most powerful graphics card contender will likely be the RTX 3060 rather than the RTX 4000. Both cards will provide a ray tracing experience similar to Nvidia Ampere.

In an interview with PCGH, Intel Arc GPU marketing director Ryan Shrout and Tom Petersen discuss various bits of Arc Alchemist graphics card information. Petersen claims that the A770 is somewhere between an RTX 3060 and an RTX 3060 Ti in terms of performance, while apparently outpacing the AMD Radeon RX 6600XT.

The Arc A770 and A750 GPUs will be available with either 8GB or 16GB VRAM. The so-called limited edition A770 will stick with 16GB, meaning the 8GB variant will likely be a board partner decision.

The new information gives us an idea of what to expect from a high-end Intel Arc GPU, especially when it comes to performance. Both the Nvidia RTX 4000 and AMD RDNA 3 are expected to be competing, as specs suggest that the cards will be focused on the budget gaming PC market.

Intel's Arc GPUs are clearly taking a bang for your buck strategy. The company wants to offer a compelling perf per dollar alternative, but concedes that the market is a tough nut to crack. Petersen says the tech giant will need to strengthen its board of directors and provide consistent execution when it comes to GPUs.

The true meaning of Intel Arc limited edition

Intel has also clarified what the limited edition status implies, and it turns out it's just branding. Hopefully, this does not mean it wont vanish overnight, but the company's GPU supply may still be limited.

Petersen predicts the A770 and A750 Arc GPUs will arrive as soon as they are released on the Intel website. The Intel Fellow adds that it must be ready before the firm can fulfill its commitments. Naturally, that means it might arrive on the battlefield at the same time as the RTX 4090, but it clearly wont compete to a dual.
