And that's a pretty good first step considering how things have ramped up over the years with other GPUs.A770 16GB is a high as it's going this gen.
Gamers looking to get into some of today’s most stunning games don’t need to break the bank to enter into the world of ray tracing. We tested an Intel Arc A380 — the most affordable discrete Arc GPU at $139 — paired to a cost-effective Core i5-13400F. Kinda sounds like another balanced build, doesn’t it?
Here we have a selection of games which hit that sweet 60 FPS mark at 1080p High settings with ray tracing enabled on the Intel Arc A380. With the power of XeSS applied, some games rocket to over double the framerates they started with!
XeSS is like the other upscalers, quality and performance varies by title. It works great in Miles Morales. I read they improved Cyberpunk'd performance a lot, so I'll give that a shot with XeSS and even some RT reflections.
Added to the list as a FAIL. Watch Dogs 2 is bad. It warns that the card is below the minimum required GTX 660 2GB LOL. It has no idea what to do with ARC. Getting past the weird resolution it sets initially was a chore. Many casuals would quit right there.
DXVK triggers easy anti cheat and the game won't start. Removing easy anti cheat also prevented the game from starting. Being stuck in DX11 means you have to play with reduced quality settings at 1080p. At which point, unless you have no other choice, you have to wonder if it's worth your time. This card should crush 1080 max in a 2016 game.
If anyone knows how to get around the anti cheat to use DXVK, hit me up please.
For sure. Closest store unfortunately, is Duluth, Georgia = 440 miles/708km.
This is day 9 of using the system exclusively. With either HDMI and TV, or DP and single monitor. No BSODs, no black screens, no audio issues. Driver and software update process is equal to AMD, and better than Nvidia, because they don't force you to make an account to access all of their software.
Also on a hot streak of 6 games in a row working great with no extra steps.
If Intel pushes the A770 for $199. They would move a lot of GPU's.
I agree the cards are hit or miss for gaming. Sometimes ARC outperforms your expectations, in other games it underperforms. DXVK fixes most issues, but problems with anti cheat blocking it, and some titles straight up not working, are still a thing.
Getting the GPU to work with PyTorch has been painful under Windows
Thanks for providing your experience in those areas. I don't have a workflow, and don't do much worth mentioning outside of gaming.Non-gaming experience: I've been using Premiere Pro and PyTorch with the A770M in the NUC 12 Enthusiast. Same everything as the desktop A770, including the 16GB GDDR6, but TDP limited to 130W. I needed a mini-PC/NUC and thought I'd pay the extra over GPU-less models so I can play around with it.
GPU acceleration is working with the latest version of Premiere Pro, despite the latest WHQL driver notes suggesting it might not. The NUC also as a 12700H CPU with integrated Xe graphics, but Hyper Encode doesn't seem to work with h264. I tried a HVEC export and this seemed to engage both GPUs.
Getting the GPU to work with PyTorch has been painful under Windows (which I unfortunately need on this PC for other work). Easiest path seemed to be via the Intel supplied Docker container but this hasn't worked for me either. I'll just wait until it is properly supported. Very different experience to getting things running via CUDA on my RTX 3080 laptop.
