The first gaming tests of the Intel Arc A380 video card appeared on the network. So far, it’s only available in China, but you can buy it openly there. Enthusiasts’ tests are already available, as are official “measurements” from Intel itself. And apparently the results are different.
Game tests from enthusiasts
Chinese fans have tested a map of Gunnir. An assembly with an Intel Core i5-12400 processor, an ASUS B660M board, 16 GB RAM, a 1 TB SSD and Windows 11 was used for this.
The card has been tested in six games at 1080p resolution – League of Legends, GTA 5, PUBG, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Forza Horizon 5 and Red Dead Redemption 2. In all cases, the new product lost to the GTX 1650, RX 6400, RX 6500 XT and RTX 3050.
Tests in enthusiast benchmarks
It turned out that the card behaves much better in test packs and “synthetics”. It’s still hard to tell whether this is due to driver errors or architectural features. However, in test tasks, the card outperforms the RT 6500 XT.
Tests from Intel in games
Of course, the production company wasn’t too lazy to test the card at home. According to them, the results are roughly comparable to the RX 6400.
At the same time, the card is officially compatible with the last three generations of Intel Core processors. It can also be used on the AMD platform, but the performance of the 3D accelerator will be lower. Tests performed on a system with a Ryzen 5 5600 showed an average performance drop of 17%.
Intel testing in benchmarks
Everything here is similar to the results the fans had. So the card feels good in synthetic materials, in games the situation varies, as we see.
The accelerator itself is equipped with a DG2-128 GPU in a configuration with eight Xe-cores (1024 shader processors) and a 96-bit memory bus. The amount of video memory is 6 GB GDDR6 with an effective frequency of 15.5 GHz. The basic consumption does not exceed 75 watts.
