Intel Arc Graphics A750 + A770 Linux Gaming Performance
Kicking things off with DiRT Rally 2.0 running on Linux via Steam Play, the Arc Graphics A750 was delivering similar performance to the GeForce RTX 3060 while the Arc Graphics A770 were coming in ahead of the RTX 3060 and Radeon RX 6600... All while running on open-source Linux drivers, similar to the AMD GPU.
On a performance-per-dollar basis, this puts the Intel Arc A750 / A770 cards tested similar to the AMD Radeon graphics cards and ahead of the NVIDIA GeForce graphics cards. As mentioned, unfortunately, no thermal/power comparison points in today's review due to the Intel driver HWMON patches still undergoing review.
The Intel Arc Graphics A750/A770 could handle playable frame-rates for DiRT Rally 2.0 at 3840 x 1600 with high quality settings.
The Radeon RX 6600 series though was leading with the better performance-per-dollar, but the Arc Graphics at least ahead of the GeForce RTX 3060 and others.
Ultra quality settings were really stressing the Arc Graphics A750/A770 and approaching the 60 FPS average mark but both of these Intel "Alchemist" GPUs did outperform the Radeon RX 6600.
In the case of Counter-Strike: Global Offensive with its new Vulkan renderer, the Arc Graphics cards unfortunately came in last.
