Intel Arc Is Seriously Winning.

Updated: Dec 19, 2023

You’ve read the title, and no, we aren’t kidding. Gaming with Intel Arc GPUs is truly a viable option now and we’re not only amazed by that fact but ecstatic about it. Here, we have the Intel NUC 12 Serpent Canyon and this features the Arc A770M GPU. Sure, it isn’t the same as the desktop Arc A770 but it’s not slouch either. This is still fully capable of running games at 4K 60 frames per second at high settings or more and if you still can’t quite wrap your head around that, well, be prepared to be amazed.

We played a total of 10 games and we tried them all out across the three main resolutions, namely 1080P, 1440P and 4K. In addition, most if not all of the games were played using the Ultra or equivalent setting and we also experimented with Intel XeSS or AMD FSR should there be the opportunity. So in the following graphs to come, do take note that performance can be yet further improved should you just simply drop the graphics settings down a tad to High or even Medium, it’s all up to you. So let’s just get straight into it.

Watch our video for all the gaming benchmarks!

We're Just Impressed

So, you guys saw the graphs. Were you guys amazed? Did you guys expect it? Because ever since Intel launched the latest drivers in late March, things changed a whole lot.

We were simply blown away as we were testing the games. It was simply a genuinely great gaming experience. The graphics were all dialed up, frame rates were absolutely fine for a smooth gaming experience and for some titles, 4K gaming was actually possible without any sacrifice. Of course, it’s not perfect. When it came to much more GPU-intensive games like Cyberpunk 2077 or the Witcher 3 next-gen, we would highly suggest sticking to 1440P or lesser and dropping the settings a fair bit. In addition, we did also notice some weird issues such as Modern Warfare 2 crashing due to Intel XeSS and transparency layers going haywire in Black Desert Remastered.

But was it a completely bad or unplayable experience? Especially when compared to when Arc first launched? Not at all. It’s downright the opposite.

Seriously, Get Arc.

Intel has done an absolutely stellar job and we’re all for it.

So at this point, we can really say this with quite a lot of confidence. If you’re looking to build your next gaming PC and you’re looking for that sweet spot, the best bang for your buck, you might actually want to consider going with Intel Arc.
