Intel’s Arc A750 GPU is expected to trade blows with Nvidia’s RTX 3060. Intel’s Arc A750 arrives next month. Intel is trying to win Nvidia on performance per dollar.
We’re still on independent reviews of the Arc A750; Intel released 48 standards last month, showing that it should hit or come close to Nvidia’s RTX 3060 performance in modern games.
In addition, Intel tested its A750 directly against the RTX 3060 across 42 DirectX 12 titles and six Vulkan games, and the outcomes look promising.
Intel surprised PC gamers before this week with $329 pricing for its ultimate Arc A770 GPU, matching Nvidia’s RTX 3060 retail pricing. While it’s still inquiring to discover an RTX 3060 at $329, Intel is now undercutting Nvidia’s well-known GPU with a $289 starting price for its A750, a card it reasons be able to exchange clashes with the RTX 3060.
Amazon has an MSI RTX 3060 documented for $399 and a Zotac RTX 3060 for nearly $379, but there’s nothing close to $329. It’s a similar story at Newegg, where you’ll only find prices close to $329 on refurbished cards or open boxes.
Intel aims for performance per dollar and budget PC gamers with its Arc GPUs. It would be fascinating if the company could ship its cards at their recommended retail costs. Nvidia’s RTX 3060 is supposed to commence at $329, but it’s still rare to discover one in stock at that expense.
Intel’s first A750 and A770 cards will begin dispatching on October 12th. Here’s what to anticipate:
- A750 initiating at $289
- A770 (8GB) beginning at $329
- A770 Limited Edition (16GB) commencing at $349
A 16GB Arc A770 at $349 that can potentially surpass an RTX 3060, Intel might dash out of cards if they’re as narrow as Nvidia’s Founders Edition standards are. “We don’t understand if we’re going to have a supply or demand problem,” Intel fellow Tom Petersen said in a press briefing. “I hope we’re heading to have a demand issue, in which case they’ll probably trade out pretty fast.”
Finally, all left is to see if Intel can truly match or beat Nvidia’s RTX 3060 at a lower price with pricing and release dates for Intel’s Arc GPUs.
It’s still unclear which card manufacturers beyond Intel will build these latest Arc GPUs, though. Intel lists a lot of partners on its website, but most are OEMs. Only Gigabyte, Asus, and MSI drive GPUs. They also make laptops. Intel maintains its Limited Edition Arc models. The company isn’t disclosing third-party board partners yet.
