Intel's Open-Source Linux Compute Stack Maturing Very Well For Arc Graphics
Lastly is the OpenCL-accelerated FluidX3D lattice Boltzmann CFD software, which ran nicely across all GPUs/drivers tested.
With the FP32-FP32 performance, the Arc Graphics A750/A770 easily outperformed all of the NVIDIA GPUs and AMD GPUs tested. The AMD RDNA2 GPUs struggled here while the A770 was about 23% faster than the RTX 3060.
The Arc Graphics A750/A770 were consuming more power, but on a performance-per-Watt basis was competitive with the tested NVIDIA GPUs.
With the FluidX3D FP32-FP16S/FP32-FP16C builds the Arc Graphics A770 still came out ahead of the GeForce RTX 3060 but by a much slimmer margin.
On a performance-per-Watt basis the DG2/Alchemist cards were comparable to the tested NVIDIA RTX 20/30 GPUs but consuming much more power.
The Intel Arc Graphics desktop graphics cards do compete very well for performance-per-dollar with FluidX3D against NVIDIA and AMD.
