The Intel Arc A770 desktop graphics card has hit the web again. The adapter was spotted in DaVinci Resolve’s Puget Bench test, and it seems to be with a new driver that hasn’t been released to users yet.
As a rule, unreleased hardware uses older or completely old drivers. In this case, however, we’re talking about version 18.104.22.1683, which is much newer than the official Intel Arc 1330 and 1660 driver. This means that the upcoming driver probably already supports Arc graphics processors for desktops.
As for the result, it’s pretty low. The same GeForce RTX 3060 scores about twice as much. But the point is that Puget Bench DaVinci Resolve is not a benchmark for the GPU, so it makes no sense to draw any conclusions.
As a reminder, the Arc A770 is supposed to be the top of the line graphics card, offering 4096 cores, a 256-bit bus and up to 16GB of memory.
