Only a few days ago the names of Intel Arc Alchemist GPUs leaked, which should arrive in stores in early 2022. Today, instead, graphics cards of the Santa Clara giant have emerged the first benchmarks made on Ashes of The Singularity.
The results were posted on Twitter by the insider APISAK: you can look at the benchmark in the picture and tweet below. According to a processing of Tom’s Hardware results, the tested GPU should have a similar power to NVIDIA’s RTX 3070 and 3070 Ti, two of the best graphics cards on the market at the moment.
Unfortunately, however, it is difficult to compare Intel graphics cards with NVIDIA graphics cards starting from this benchmark only: in particular, we do not know precisely which Intel Arc GPU has been tested, so we cannot tell if the results are related to the GPU
In addition, the configuration on which the GPU has been tested is particular, since it includes an Intel Core i9-12900K CPU and 32 GB of RAM: conditions rather difficult to replicate, also considering the cost of a build of this kind Moreover, Ashes of the Singularity is often influenced by the performance of the CPU, which in this case is one of the best in circulation: in other words, the results could be revised upwards or downwards, at least partially, with more in-depth tests.
However, FPS average in benchmark was 126.9 with a maximum of 144.8 FPS. Finding similar results among the benchmarks on Ashes of the Singularity is quite difficult, although some tests related to the RTX 3090 in combination with an Intel Core i9-12900K give results between 140 and 170 FPS, plus
However, the benchmark for the Intel Arc graphics card lacks some important data such as the GPU and CPU clock frequency and resolution, which is reported in the test as “0x0.” With this in mind, Tom’s Hardware says that Intel’s GPU could have performances similar to a RTX 3070 Ti or a RTX 3080. However, before we get an idea of the real power of the graphics card, we need more data: Meanwhile, Intel released the Alchemist Arc GPU trailer to the TGA 2021.
