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: 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: - 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: the gpu is only 350 dollars before tax with 16 gigabytes of vram and it includes a free copy of the new call of duty. The gpu looks great and is not loud under full load compared to my other gpu. The performance is good for direct x 12 and vulken titles and some direct x 11 titles.
Cons: Certain games like rtx minecraft have bugs with not loading in at first forcing you to tab out and back in to get the game to load into the worlds. Quake 2 rtx also has a bug wear you have load into the game in opengl first and change it to rtx to run raytracing on it and I was getting 1080p native high global illumination around 60-70 fps. When I tried rtx minecraft depending on the area it could be as low as 24 fps on a rtx world on the marketplace and in a normal minecraft world at 1080p it was around 40-50 fps at native 1080p. You also have to support resizable bar in order to use this gpu otherwise you will get bad performance even if it can run. Driver issues are going to be normal on this gpu since it's one of intel arc's first real dedicated gpu's and it will get better over time but will not happen over night.
Overall Review: If you like testing new hardware and have other gpu's this might be a good gpu for you but for the average consumer I would not recommend this product in it's current state
Cons: The only CON I have so far is I can not get my Intel Nuc 12 Extreme to recognize the Card for via the LED software. I plugged in the cable to the card and to the best of my knowledge the other end to the USB header even flipped it around and tried again but it can not seem to find it for some reason.
Overall Review: I have only had this installed for about 10 hours now and have played Red Dead Redemption 2 on the highest graphic settings on my 34" Ultra Wide 2k monitor and it looks amazing. Also just played Cyberpunk 2077 at almost the highest settings. I did leave Ray Tracing as Ultra instead of Psycho but all other settings were maxed out and on my system it looked amazing. I have a Intel Nuc 12 Extreme with the i9 12th Gen Processor 32gb of Ram, and (2) 2TB Samsung NVME SSD drives.
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: -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 email@example.com if you want to have a more detailed opinion.
Pros: Handles 4K gaming at 60 FPS Easiest Overclock in my Life Amazing at Running the Dolphin Emulator in DirectX 11
Cons: No Fan-Curve tuning in Overclock software (overheats easily when set to maximum wattage) Cant run one of my regular games (Forza Horizon 5) Has a tendency to crash when VRAM reaches 90C or higher
Overall Review: I bought this card to replace a 2080 Ti that I had reliability concerns about. Installing it was easy when I gave up on trying to have a dual-GPU set up. Long story short, Ive had the exact same performance for all the games I regular at 4K resolutions with the same settings, save for Cyberpunk 2077, which is at a steady 30 FPS with medium settings, FSR 2.1, and Raytracing on (also medium, all other settings on too). Ive done a slight overclock; the UI is very beginner friendly, but lacks fine controls that experienced overclockers (which I am not) are accustomed to. The only real thing I found missing and had issue with in the Intel-made utility is that I cant change the fan curve to increase my cards Wattage limit beyond 195W. I personally have left mine at 185W to be safe. Another subtle issue is that if you have an Intel CPU with integrated graphics, the Geforce like Driver Updater cant tell the difference between your I-GPU (CPU) and your D-GPU (this card), so youll want to disable it in Device Manager until they fix that. Overall, Ive been pleasantly surprised given the damning reviews that the computer-enthusiast media have given this card. If youre like me and game at 60FPS because you use a 4K TV as a monitor, its a good buy; most people will likely have no issue with this, especially if they dont push the Wattage beyond the default settings.
Pros: Easy to install. Driver was easy to install. Works well with default everything. Nothing to do but use it. 16GB VRAM Learn how to use the Arc Control software (equivalent to Nvidia Control Panel)
Overall Review: I would recommend the Arc 770 16 GB GPU to anyone.
