Pros: - No issues with initial driver setup on Windows 11 - My favorite games work and run well (Minecraft, VRChat) - VR works in SteamVR when using Virtual Desktop instead of Oculus software - Regular desktop applications run without issue just as they do on Intel iGPUs - AV1 video encoding is massively improved over CPU only, from 3 fps -> 45 fps for 4k30 VP9 transcode, and CPU was still the bottleneck - A significant improvement over my previous 1050 Ti
Cons: - Still some driver instability, minor annoyances like UAC popups for Arc Control panel - Was unable to get Ubuntu drivers working properly - Limited application specific support (e.g. Minecraft Ray Tracing, Oculus VR tethering) - Limited use in neural network applications at present due to many application's CUDA requirements (though the same could be said of AMD)
Overall Review: The Arc A770 is full of potential and has exceeded my expectations for Intel's first foray into the dGPU market. I've had the card for about a week now and my overall experience has been positive. That's not to say everything has been perfect, but I believe Intel recognizes the long term investment it will take to be competitive with the likes of Nvidia and AMD. With the latest beta drivers (released 10/27), I'm able to stream games like VRChat and Beat Saber to my Quest 2 when using Virtual Desktop and SteamVR (instead of the Oculus software which doesn't support the card yet), and they certainly run well compared to my old 1050 Ti 😆. Other games I've tried like Minecraft (Java & Bedrock), Portal 2, 0 A.D., and What Remains of Edith Finch have run well too. I paired the card with a Ryzen 5 3600, and with Smart Access Memory enabled (AMD's resizable bar) performance is as expected. If you go with AMD, you need to have a 500 series motherboard to enable SAM, like the B550 I went with, which even the Arc's box warns you about in the fine print. Overall, if you're a tinkerer and are willing to deal with Intel's first generation growing pains, I can definitely recommend the A770. I'm excited to see what a third contender to the GPU market will bring.
Pros: - Easy to use and install. - No issues after hours of gaming on this Video Card.
Cons: - The Intel Arc Control is still a work in progress and needs some basic controls added or updated, and also made easier to navigate. - When activating Ray Tracing on some games you will need to restart the game after otherwise you could crash it.
Overall Review: -Overall I would recommend this video card to other users. Although, most of the reviews prior to launch almost seemed to try and deter people from using this card, I have had no real issues with this card playing games. Games I have personally tried so far are WoW, WoW Classic, D2 Resurrected, D3, Elden Ring, The Division, The Division 2, Deep Rock Galactic, World of Warships, Sea of Thieves, and Warhammer 40k Inquisitor. GPU runs cool overall while gaming and after a 3 hour gaming session. Computer Specs: 12700k Asus ROG Strix Z690-F GSKILL DDR5 6000Mhz Intel Arc A770
Pros: Performance, design
Overall Review: It obviously has some bugs. But a lot of them are fixed after driver updates. Overwatch 2, Valorant, and Pubg works flawlessly as of now. Battlefield 1 had an issue during startup, but now it works very well. However, I still have not been able to run 2042 as it crashes every time I try to join a match. Also, I have not been able to connect wallpaper engine with ICUE software to control RGB lighting on ram and motherboard since I installed this card. I highly doubt these problems will stay for a long time, considering how fast intel is coming out with new drivers.
Pros: Low price. Amazing performance!
Cons: Now Intel needs to mature the drivers. DX 12 and newer.
Overall Review: Finally, an 3rd player to break up the AMD and. Nvidia cartel.
Pros: Runs fhd and qhd with no issues. 16gb of vram, runs cool, drivers are getting better and better.
Overall Review: buy this card, give intel a chance. this card rocks!!!
Pros: Performs >= RTX 3070 at $350 Drivers continue to mature at a rapid pace (bi-weekly releases) 16GB of memory Beautiful Aesthetics Relatively quiet under load 3x more powerful than an A380
Cons: Drivers still need to mature for certain games (check your gaming requirements)
Overall Review: I had already picked up an A380 to play with way back in August on launch and the drivers were rough but the potential was there. Picked up an A770 and along with the A380 built out two Arc systems for World of Warcraft: Dragonflight. A770 is the real deal. Timespy = 13500 which puts it right at or slightly above 3070 performance. Newest drivers optimized World of Warcraft Dragonflight and it shows. Solid performance everywhere at 1440p with everything to Ultra getting 60-100fps. Even with RT enabled to High (max setting) fps are a solid 60fps everywhere. Aesthetically, this is one of the better looking GPUs I've encountered and easily top 5. It is very well built, feels solid to hold and when installed lights up with a very Blade Runner aesthetic and presence. Compared side by side on the same platform capturing FPS in WoW, the A770 is ~3x+ more powerful than the A380 so it definitely packs a punch. With the newest drivers as of 12/7/2022 I've had zero crashes or issues and they are just running solidly. DX9 optimizations continue at a frantic pace and Intel clearly is in it to win it. If you're looking for a solid GPU (depending on games as drivers continue to mature) at a great price this is it. If the A770 is any indication of what is coming up next from Intel, their next gen may end up even going into my main rig too!
Pros: Hardware AV1 Encoding Quiet Solid Gaming Performance
Cons: Bugs with drivers
Overall Review: As some one who does a lot of video editing and encoding this card is just amazing. AV1 encoding is so fast, I get over 300fps with 1080p video. Using software AV1 I was getting around 2.5fps so this has made things so much faster. The gaming performance is solid, about the same as a 3060. I don't need more than that it gives me over 90fps max setting in 1440p in the games I play. That is really all I need. There are bugs with the drivers they will get worked out but it is expected with Intel just now getting back into the GPU market.
Pros: -Much better price than competitors -Great for 2k gaming
Cons: -Does not work well on older games.
Overall Review: So far, the Arc has been amazing. The games I am currently playing are: MW2 Overwatch Cyberpunk On all these games, it has worked fantastically. One issue I had was with Uncharted, which was bad from the get go. I received that game for free with the purchase of my Ryzen 7 5800x. So its wasnt something I was trying to play, but glad I had it to test. To consider this purchase I would make sure you dont the following criteria: -mostly play new games -okay being a beta tester -tech skills enough to troubleshoot any issues -patient for driver updates.
Pros: Works like a charm!
Cons: There should be more ARC A770 cards offered to catch up with the demand.
Overall Review: I bought this product for computation (machine learning and statistical modelling): If you want to use this product with Ubuntu Linux, then you need: 1. Upgrade to Ubuntu 22.04 (Jammy) -- follow these instructions: https://blog.eldernode.com/upgrade-ubuntu-18-04-to-22-04/ 2. Install the driver -- Use the instructions from Intel: https://dgpu-docs.intel.com/installation-guides/ubuntu/ubuntu-jammy-arc.html Performance-wise it does look like a match to Tesla V100. Write me to firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to have a more detailed opinion.
Pros: - cost - active and ongoing improvements - hardware seems beefy and well-built
Cons: - might not be for every user in its current form - Be sure to look at the hardware - Gamers who enjoy older titles might have to wait for their favorite games to be supported
Overall Review: For reference: I bought this card to replace an RTX 1070. My components: MSI Pro Z690-A. i5 12600k processor. 32 gigs DDR5 RAM. 1000 watt power supply. WD Black M.2 I know this is Intel, but this card has the feel of an Indie game supported by a small but dedicated team. By that, I mean to say that, like an Alpha release, it is a bit rough around the edges but has a lot of potential. The 2 driver releases in the time I purchased the card have yielded substantial improvements and have already exceeded my expectations with regards to gameplay and user experience. Honestly, I bought this card because I want to see more competition in the market, but I do not get the feeling I had to settle for anything. (This is based in part on the aggressive effort they seem to be putting into improving their drivers). I'm still a new owner, but I have zero regrets about purchasing the card. It feels well made and they are making clear progress on making the hardware work optimally. If they continue improving the drivers, expand support into the diverse needs of its users (hint: I am an Oculus Rift user), and manage to keep the card around this price point, than I would think it can wind up in RTX 3070 territory with much less of a sting on the wallet. If you have a new machine (say, 10th gen Intel processor, or newer) and are willing to put in a little work configuring your motherboard and drivers, then I think you would enjoy this card. I would say if you have an older machine (9th gen Intel or older, for example) then really do your homework before getting this card. If you've never messed around with your BIOS, you might want to do some research first. With that said, I do think the driver installation is becoming more approachable to the common user and I have every reason to believe that will be improving as the releases continue. Do make sure you have an 8 pin and 6+2 PCIe cable from your power supply available. Coming from an older card, I wasn't prepared for the extra power requirement.
