DiRT Rally 2.0 running on Linux by way of Valve's Steam Play is one of the games that performs great with Arc Graphics 7-Series hardware. Both the A750/A770 on Linux with the latest open-source graphics driver code was able to enjoy this racing game at similar performance to the GeForce RTX 30 and Radeon RX 6600 series graphics cards.

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive can run with ease on the Arc Graphics hardware under Linux. Even at 4K the A750/A770 could run just above the GeForce RTX 3060 series.

HITMAN 3 under Steam Play is still a bit buggy with the Intel ANV Vulkan driver. Though in general it seems HITMAN 3 with Steam Play does have a tendency to hang sometimes during gameplay, but with the Intel graphics tended to occur a bit more frequently. The Arc Graphics A770 was able to successfully run the benchmark but the performance was coming up well short of the Radeon RX 6600 series.

To much excitement, the Intel Arc Graphics are now behaving well for Cyberpunk 2077 running on Linux via Steam Play. Cyberpunk 2077 with Steam Play in general is running well enough too that I am finally confident in using it for future Linux graphics tests. Though with the Mesa version tested, the Radeon graphics with RADV were encountering the game hung on load. The Arc Graphics A750/A770 performance was well short of the GeForce RTX 3060 performance, but at least the game was running on the cards -- unlike RADV with the cards and Mesa Git snapshot used for this round of testing.
