Intel Arc A580 Leaks Out: As Fast as the RTX 3060 and RX 7600

Intel’s unreleased Arc A580 has been spotted in the Geekbench OpenCL database. With 24 Xe Cores or 1,536 shaders running at 2.4GHz, it features 8GB of GDDR6 memory paired with a 256-bit bus, producing an output bandwidth of 512GB/s. The A580 goes up against the RTX 3060 and the Radeon RX 7600, almost certainly at a lower MSRP in the coming months.

The Arc A580 registers 82,992 points in the GeekBench OpenCL benchmark, the same as AMD’s Radeon RX 7600. The RTX 3060 is 6.5% faster although it likely has higher ray-tracing performance and increased MSRP too. It’s worth noting that OpenCL performance doesn’t equal the gaming capabilities of a GPU and should be taken with a grain of salt.

Currently, the GeForce RTX 3060 is going for $259, down from its sticker price of $329. In comparison, the Radeon RX 7600 can be had for $269 while the Arc A239. Looking at these numbers, the A580 should cost around $150 to $175 when it releases later this month.
