The premiere of Intel Arc graphics cards is getting closer and closer, and there are more and more network leaks with hardware performance scores. This time, the results of the top actor for the new series have been revealed.

Intel Arc graphics cards are typically designs designed with gamers in mind, so in theory we should get a response to the competing Nvidia GeForce and AMD Radeon models – the systems are meant to power both desktops and gaming laptops.

The first generation of cards will be released in the coming months (the first will be chipsets for laptops, then cards for desktops). Alchemist chips will offer support for DirectX 12 Ultimate, as well as Intel XeSS image scaling technology.

True, the manufacturer has not yet revealed a lot of information about the performance of the systems, but there are leaks on the Web that reveal details about the performance of the new “blue” designs.

In the Geekbench 5 benchmark database, there are entries that reveal the performance of the Arc Alchemist graphics card with the highest DG2-512 graphics processor (equipped with 512 EU modules).

The card is expected to score 85.448 points overall, which unfortunately does not look very impressive – the result can be compared with the GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER or GeForce RTX 2070, that is, the mid-range models of the previous generation from Nvidia.

It is worth paying attention to the partial results of the card, which in some cases is similar to the GeForce RTX 3070 or Radeon RX 6700 XT models (we are already talking about the mid-range of the latest generations of Nvidia and AMD). Unfortunately, some results differ significantly from competition models.

However, we are still talking about the synthetic test, which only talks about the computational power of the accelerator. How will the card play in games, because that’s what potential customers care about the most? We will find out in a few months, because according to the latest information from the manufacturer, the premiere of desktop models is scheduled for the second quarter of the year. Keep waiting.
