The mobile Intel graphics card Arc A 370M has to prove itself in gaming benchmarks and ends up behind the GTX 1060.
The performance of the mobile Arc A 370M is disappointing across the board.
Intel wants to stir up the market dominated by Nvidia and AMD with its own graphics cards. So far, however, interested buyers have had to keep getting annoyed about postponements. The first benchmarks for the mobile chip Arc A 370M from Intel have now appeared. This is based on the ACM-G11 chip and has 4 GB of GDDR6 memory.
Test run in the Asus Zenbook Flip 15
The Notebookcheck website put the Intel GPU through its paces in an Asus Zenbook Flip 15 Q539 together with a Core i7-12700H and 16 GB of LPDDR5 memory. The manufacturer’s standard driver was used here, but it apparently still has a lot of optimization potential.
Slower than GTX 1060 Mobile?
The Arc A 370M was able to secure 3,885 points in the 3D Mark Time Spy. This puts it behind the Geforce RTX 3050 from Nvidia, which scores 4,704 points. Even an older Geforce GTX 1060 Mobile can deliver almost the same performance with 3,601 points. In terms of real gaming performance, the GTX 1060 is even clearly ahead of the mobile Intel graphics card in many titles.
Disappointing in games
For example, if you look at “The Witcher 3” in Full HD resolution, the GTX 1060 Mobile is a good 50 percent ahead of the Intel Arc A 370M. In “X-Plane 11” the Nvidia graphics card is even 135 percent faster. The role-playing game “FF XV” runs 55 percent slower with the Intel GPU than with the small Geforce. In “Dota 2”, however, the lead of the GTX 1060 is 73 percent. Intel obviously still has a lot of optimization work to do. And even then it remains questionable to what extent the new graphics cards are really worthwhile for gamers.
