Intel’s Arc A770 16GB has dropped to its lowest price ever. The Sparkle variant, known as the Arc A770 Titan OC Edition, comes with a triple-fan heatsink and a metal backplate. At the time of reporting, it can be back-ordered for just $289, down from its launch price of $349. The Arc A770 features 32 Xe cores with 4,096 shaders and 16GB of GDDR6 memory across a 256-bit bus.
In terms of gaming performance, the Arc A770 16GB offers solid raster and even better ray tracing performance. In the case of the former, we’re looking at nearly GeForce RTX 3060 Ti levels of performance, a GPU that costs $349 on the retail market. The ray-tracing performance is on par or even better than the Radeon RX 7000 series GPUs in some cases. Last but not least, you get twice as much VRAM for significantly less.
