Graphics cards are the topic of the moment. After yesterday’s news about the first real photos of the new Intel desktop GPUs, today we return to Arc Alchemist in his mobile declination, the only solution announced in March by the company in the two models Arc A350M and Arc A370M. The news this time concerns a brand new model from the Alchemist series that should arrive on the market shortly, it is about Intel A730Ma product that recently “came to the surface” due to some preliminary tests that appeared on the net.
The details come from Weibo and see the Intel GPU grappling with the 3DMark Time Spybenchmark where this chip scores 10.138 points paired with an Intel Core i7-12700H processor.
Intel Arc A730M will not use the most powerful chip of the Intel Alchemist lot – 32 Xe Core to be clear – but a variant of 24 Xe Core and a total of 3,072 FP32 cores, flanked by 12GB of GDDR6 VRAM probably on 192-bit bus. To have a yardstick, the result of Arc A730M is superior to that obtained from a GeForce RTX 3070 (about 9,400 points) and also undermines some configurations with RTX 3070 Ti.
In the last few hours the tests on Intel A730M multiply and even i first results in games which, unlike the synthetic 3DMark, show a more realistic scenario of GPU performance. In this case the results are mixed, placing the Intel GPU between a GeForce RTX 3060 and an RTX 3070, in specific scenarios even under an RTX 3050. This behavior could also depend on the drivers and the need for further optimizations by Intel engineers, precisely for this reason the situation is constantly updated and new independent benchmarks are expected (even of the top-of-the-range models).
