Intel’s budget Arc A750 graphics card is down by another $50, dropping to an all-time low of $199. Its closest competitor, the GeForce RTX 3060, retails for over $300, making this a killer deal. The Arc A750 leverages the Xe HPG graphics architecture and forms the backbone of the Alchemist family. It features 3,584 ALUs (shaders) spread across 448 vector units and 28 Xe cores. The GPU is paired with 8GB of GDDR6 memory via a 256-bit bus and is backed by 16MB of L2 cache.
The Arc A750 offers a theoretical single-precision throughput of 17 TFLOPs and an external memory bandwidth of 512GB/s. The GPU cores operate at a base clock of 2,050MHz and a boost of 2,400MHz. The GDDR6 graphics memory is clocked at 2,000MHz, which translates to 16Gbps.
Regarding real-world gaming performance, the Arc A750 is nearly as fast as the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060. Granted, the latter does come with more memory (8GB vs. 12GB), but it does cost $100 to $130 more. The A750 can be paired with a Core i5-12600K for a nifty bundle of just $448 ($75 off) and $678 if you include a Z690 board ($190 off).
The Arc A750 delivers excellent ray-tracing performance, in most cases better than the Radeon RX 6600 XT. It also supports Intel’s XeSS upscaling technology and all DirectX 12_2 features, including variable rate shading (VRS) and sampler feedback. It has a TBP of 225W and is powered by an 8-pin and a 6-pin power connector.
