The Intel Arc A380 graphics card, which has been available in China for more than 15 days, already seems to be struggling to compete with the entry-level Nvidia and AMD models. We know this.
Intel recently shared benchmarks for its new Arc A380 GPU for 17 video games, with head-to-head comparisons against the Nvidia GTX 1650 and AMD RX 6400, all tested on the same PC. Well, el observation is without vocation. The A380 underperforms in all but a single title draw.
Intel among entry-level competitors
Gamers and hardware enthusiasts have expected a lot from the arrival of Intel to bring a breath of fresh air. But it seems that not everything is going as planned. This is all the more surprising since the benchmark comes from Intel itself, see instead:
As TomsHardware explains, the Arc A380 lost an average of 19% versus the GTX 1650 and 9% versus the RX 6400. 1650 is a several year old card while the ARC A380 was just released.
Analysis of the A380 map
However, we know that Intel drivers play an important or even predominant role in GPU performance. So it’s entirely possible that the ARC A380 will catch up with a rider in the future.
Also note that the Arc A380 is also faster in scenarios other than video games, e.g. B. in video encoding. It remains to be seen what Intel is planning in the future for the good of its GPU.
