Intel Arc A770 vs AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT: The Arc A770 is the first high-productive desktop card from Intel. It is the most powerful Desktop GPU made by the company yet. The Arc A770 is better and more powerful when compared to its siblings- Arc A750 and Arc 5 series.
However, in this post, we’re going to test the power of the Intel Arc A770 vs AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT. Even though Intel is new in the desktop card market, let’s see how well it holds up to the competition.
The AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT is the most expensive of these two graphics cards. It has an MSRP of $479 and the custom editions from third-party retailers like MSI, EVGA, Asus, etc are currently selling for between $420 – $450.
While the Intel Arc A770 is priced at $330 for the 8GB model, while the 16GB memory option is priced slightly higher at $350. And as usual, the custom editions by MSI, Gigabyte, Asus, etc will add more price than the MSRP.
Release Date and Availability
The AMD Radeon 6700 XT was launched in March 2021 and became available almost immediately after launching. While the Intel Arc A770 was announced in September 2022 and began selling a month later. You can use the box at the bottom of this post to purchase either of them.
Does the AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT has better performance than the Intel Arc A770 GPU? Yes! In an eight games average per second comparison (at 1080p Ultra settings), the AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT had 21% better performance than the Intel Arc A770. And when you step higher to 1440p Ultra settings, the RX 6700 XT outperformed the Intel Arc A770 by 13%. The games tested are detailed in the table below.
However, when Ray tracing is enabled, the Intel Arc A770 performs better. In a five games average per second comparison (at 1080p Ultra), the Intel Arc A770 beats the AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT by 19%. And when you step higher to 1440p, the Intel Arc A770 is 28% better.
Intel Arc A770 vs AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT: Verdict
When it comes to Ray Tracing, the Intel Arc A770 is better than the AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT. This means, generally, the Intel Arc A770 has the potential of delivering top-flight performance if not for the drivers that are holding it back. And remember too that the Intel Arc A770 is cheaper than the competition.
But even though, it is still hard to recommend the Intel Arc A770. Being the first generation, there are still lots of things for the company to fix to enable its stability. AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT is more stable and for now, will continue to gain more recognition/recommendations ahead of the Intel Arc A770.
