When AMD launched the simplest graphics card in the Radeon RX 6000-series at the beginning of the year, the product was met with a load of criticism, where low performance and the risk of bandwidth limitations were paired with a relatively large price tag. It soon emerged that the circuit and the restrictions are a legacy from the portable side. On the portable side, AMD and Nvidia recently faced competition from Intel’s new graphics cards in the Arc series, but AMD now believes that Intel’s entry level is not much to come by.
► Intel Arc “Alchemist” takes over laptops
The Intel Arc “Alchemist” family consists of five graphics cards, with the A350M and A370M as the series’ simplest models. The focus for these is ultra-thin computers and gaming in 1080p resolution, which is in line with AMD’s Radeon RX 6500M. Intel shows the level of performance set against its own integrated graphics components, which does not say much about how they perform against the alternatives. On Twitter shows AMD that the Arc A370M does not control the RX 6500M, despite similar specifications.
The Arc A370M has 4 GB of graphics memory, a 64-bit memory bus and a configurable TGP value of up to 50 watts, which are details that are also visible on AMD’s graphics cards. The two graphics cards are also made on TSMC’s 6-nanometer technology. The full-scale ACM-G11 circuit of the Arc A370M uses 33 percent more transistors than the Radeon RX 6500M – while the frame rate is 22-40 percent behind. Intel’s presentation materials show that Medium settings and 1080p resolution keep the Arc A370 just above the magic limit of 60 frames per second (FPS).
AMD’s comparison contains only half of Intel’s game tests and should be taken with a pinch of salt, as the company has every reason to choose game titles and scenarios that show their own product in good days. However, it is a sign that AMD’s budget card is the better choice, although updated drivers and the like can improve Intel’s position slightly. Independent tests may show how big the difference really is.
Can you imagine a laptop or desktop computer with Intel Arc under the hood?
