Overall Review: Works better than I expected with the talk about how incomplete it is. I do however, get some stuttering or coil wine. It's definitely not optimized for every game but works great so far for everything I played after the driver updates! Using it in my all new Intel-Only setup in an NR200 case with 120mm fans right below it.
Pros: The a770 Bifrost is nice, when it is working without issues. It isn't double stick taped together like it's counterpart, and has better cooling and performance. On Win 11, It easily manages 60FPS+ at 4k, and rockets Firestrike upwards of 200FPS with a score of 26000+, and if your game won't run on it, odds are simply adding the correct DXVK Vulkan driver in the game folder will have it playing smoothly without issues. But for some HELLISH reason, it functions better in my Ryzen rig, gaining over 3K total score on Firestrike, as well better perf in others as well.
Cons: But that being said, it has many software compatibility hangups that make it not quite worth full price, IMO. My friends who also have them are not having as many issues as me, so take this with a grain of salt. My first card was unstable and had coil whine so bad it could be mistaken for a tiny tesla coil or taser. So it got, RMA'd. With the replacement it still has issues. But at least it doesn't sound like it's singeing its PCB black somewhere... Issues include random restarts of display adapter, signified by suddenly black screens and a beep. Decode issues making local video playback technicolor kaleidoscopes, until you reload file or toggle between Hardware and software decode or fullscreen/windowed. Hooking issues for streamshare in discord where every program and monitor preview is black screen [ sometimes ctrl+shift+win+B to force display adapter restart fixes this and other small hangups, for a bit..] but really, tip of the iceberg with it's list of issues with discord, my streams constantly end themselves too etc.. etc... But discord has been getting more and more inconsistent as the years go on.. Since Win 11 re calibrates your monitor layout every time it thinks you unplug, it , you turn off a monitor this causes the card to reassign the designation from "Device" to "Device (2)/(3)/(4)" which causes Win11 to switch to the "New" device and wrecks voicemeeters input/output settings. That means Voicemeeter has audio device selection issues and loses/ changes the enumeration of the devices when they are powercycled. so you have to re select it every time you turn off a monitor. It causes program crashes on load and acts like its out of memory when it is not. Usually games, but not always. Certain programs like photoshop etc do not like the card and complain that it does not support directx or does not have enough memory when it does.... And it may/ may not function despite the errors. I suspect I may have received another lemon to return at this point as the black screens and display resets are becoming more frequent as I multitask and play games like Elden Ring....
Overall Review: The list of issues goes on, but it works, and is slowly improving with updates- so If you can get it on sale and don't mind troubleshooting through the software growing pains, go for it. Otherwise, find an acceptably stable alternative for your needs...
Pros: Slight factory OC Premium quality build REALLY FREAKEN good imo Unique center fan and its some type of alloy/metal blades, even the back plate is some hard casing too; probably the front casing also Mesmerizing default rgb especially the center fan. Surprisingly Runs pretty good without rebar/uefi maybe due to the new updates.
Cons: Couple of stutters (more updates) Coil whine depending on games. Loud on open case vs quieter when closed. However Ill be tweaking the whole system around it especially needing a new fully modular psu its currently running on evga white 600w recommended is 650w flat. Saw a trick to use two! separate 8pin pcie connectors and not a split.
Overall Review: Honestly I was expecting a lot of the problems arising with dealing with the arc series but so far it was me doing all the errors lol messing around my bios. I literally just downloaded the drivers 1.2gb (dont run/open it) before installing the card; I didnt even delete my nvidia drivers. Turned computer off, took 1060 (had for almost 6-7years) out and installed the arc gpu; and ran the computer just fine. Everything was big across my monitor but after installing and updating my windows with the drivers it was game on. Im still currently testing it out. So far Ive manage to play Witcher3 rt, Cyber Punk 2077, COD MllW online tdm/groundwar, pretty well on high/ultra settings @ 1080 native without being fps conscious. They all look so good and crisp. Cant wait to upscale. Path of exile on Vulcan/d12 has a couple stutters but playable. However Im running it without out resizable bar and my system is still on cmos/legacy windows os *It is recommended to update all firmware to uefi to be able to ENABLE rebar* and to be able to use xess upscaling, Im guessing thats why all options are disabled. It is a tinkers card so take great precautions But I loved the challenges it gave me. Honestly only worth the upgrade if people are running 10 series and amds equivalent or lower. Was worth getting the free games with Intel program before promotion expires (1/31) and also the fact it is some thing new to explore and be part of. Hope to run black desert onlines max ultra gen settings soon also with upcoming upgrades on my pc (m.2 4gen, 16gb more ram, 750+psu) My specs i7 1100k (cooler master hyper t4 7 yrs old) 16gb ddr4 3200 Corsair rgb MSI z590 tomahawk 1tb ssd acer ironically tehe Evga 600w white Evga 1060 6gb ssc/ Acer predator Bifrost a770 16gb
Pros: Each time a driver update comes, I'm really excited to see performance have huge uplifts! I'm coming from a 1080 (with Ryzen 2700x), I also upgraded to a i5 13600k at the same time. The changes may not all be coming from the A770, but I'm able to push my graphics higher than I previously could, I'm excited for the small tweaks I can do in the overlay, like changing VSync options (As my monitor doesn't support adaptive refresh rate of any kind). Smooth VSync is a pretty interesting change.
Cons: There are definitely limitations to going Intel for GPU against established brands, especially Nvidia. However, I feel it's a huge disappointment to see ever increasing GPU costs with minimal differences in performance, when I could go Intel at a much more acceptable price. I have seen some games not launch, some games have a bit of graphical issues, yet, at the same time, there are other games that just work, and I don't feel like I'm really missing out by not going Nvidia.
Overall Review: Tinkering and pushing boundaries of less than top tier products has always been a fun thing for me to do, and I enjoy rooting for the underdog! For the past few years, I've held off on upgrading to 2000/3000/4000 Nvidia GPUs, as I haven't had much need to upgrade. My partner has a 3080, and so I'm able to do side by side comparisons. My monitor goes up to 100 Hz (120 Hz with overclocking), and I've felt really good about my PC upgrades, including the A770, as I'm able to keep a solid 100 Hz with minimal frame drops in the games I enjoy playing. There will always be the top tier of computing products that enthusiasts will want to have, and the A770 isn't at that point yet, but I'm excited for the future of Intel graphics and the improvements they will bring along the way, hoping that this GPU will age wonderfully! I also enjoy the Bifrost app which lets me change power limits against three presets and one custom profile. I jump a bit between the Default 210W + 90c temperature limit and a custom profile of 190W and 81c temperature limit, getting most of the performance while still keeping the noise levels down. There is also the turbo which goes up to 235W and 90c temperature limit, and I like that the option is there if needed on some games, but the fans definitely ramp up on that profile! Overall I'm happy with the GPU, both for right now, as well as for the future!
Pros: Stays cool, performs great at 1080p or 1440p, looks great
Cons: Drivers are still new so there are some issues, but Intel has been releasing frequent beta drivers.
Overall Review: Pretty happy with this purchase, great product at a great price, performs great while staying cool.
Pros: - Great looking card - Comes with the Predator software for configuration - Runs cool, not problems with temps thanks to solid fans - the new driver updates really improved FPS in a lot of games I play - I got it on sale for 349.00, a great option instead of NVIDIA and AMD 1,000 options, you don't need it, this card plays most games in ultra settings at even 1440p at 120fps or greater
Cons: - The Arc A770 is still not perfects due to drivers playing catch up. Intel has remained committed to update drivers and I am seeing huge gains with each update. - The Acer Predator is more expensive but I would say its worth it, the card is a beauty and the fans keep it very cool and quiet.
Overall Review: I highly recommend this video card, with more and more improvements as newer drivers are updated, this is definitely going to be worth the money and as I mentioned I play most games in ultra settings at 120FPS or more with 1440p, who needs 4K, it's totally overrated.
Pros: -Great performance in intensive games -Lots of next-level features -Driver updates are "getting there" -The card feels good, lots of metal and sturdy parts -Bifrost RGB is cool
Cons: -Arc "overlay" is trash -A bit of coil whine
Overall Review: I would recommend this to anyone who is looking at this review! It honestly blew me away at how GOOD it is now that the drivers are refined. Great value in general.
Pros: Worked out of the box. Comparable in quality to the 3060 I have in my son's computer.
Cons: Not as many setting that you can tweek compared to Nvidia.
Overall Review: Would recommend for anyone who wants a mid range GPU and dose not want to pay high prices for Nvidia.
Pros: - Great performance for the price, 16Gb VRAM ($350) - Cool operation - Premiun construction, mostly metal - Very nice aesthetics and RGB - The software bundle is atractive
Cons: - High power usage at idle compared with the competition (No, the drivers are not a con anymore :)
Overall Review: - VERY IMPORTANT: Do a Windows updated clean install to avoid posible drivers problems - Would recommend this video card for gaming on UW-FHD or QHD @120Hz, very high or ultra settings SETUP: AMD Ryzen 5 5600, V-Color Prism Pro RGB 16Gb 3600MTs CL16 Asus ROG Strix B550-F Gaming, XPG Spectrix S40G M.2 Gen3x4 Predator BiFrost Intel Arc A770 OC, EVGA Supernova 650 G3 LG Ultrawide 2560x1080@100Hz Windows 11 Pro 22H2
Pros: I use a 3840 x 1080 widescreen and run everything a ultra or high settings. Happily surprised.
Cons: Over clocking is different/not many ways to tweak yet. Ray tracing seems great at 1080/slows down frame rates above 1080 (I don't use). Non ray tracing frame rates are great at 2k/above 60fps.
Overall Review: I recommend this based on current gpu prices/Better than my 1080ti, 2080 or 3060 for $400 It's a bargain and is getting better as the weeks go by. Runs everything I have asked it to at max settings at 2k resolution. Have played: Cyberpunk 2077, Witcher 3, Metro Exodus, Baldur's Gate III. It took me 2 weeks worth of recent updates to get right (last update did the trick)/would recommend and buy again! ASROCK 670E mobo, AMD 7600x/OCd to 5650ghz, Corsair Vengeance 6600 32gb/running at 6000, Acer Bifrost Arc A770 gpu, Samsung 990 Pro NVME drive, Raijintech Paean ATX "case" test bench minus the glass.
