Intel has released another video demonstrating the work of one of the older Arc Alchemist line of desktop graphics accelerators. This time, Head of Graphics Marketing Ryan Shrout focused on the Arc A750 graphics card’s Variable Refresh Rate (VRR) technology.
To demonstrate the accelerator’s support for VRR technology, Shrout ran Death Stranding at 2560×1440 pixels and standard image quality settings. In such conditions, the graphics card was able to deliver performance of 80-100 frames per second.
According to an Intel spokesman, the Arc graphics cards work with all VRR-capable monitors. The company is currently testing over 100 gaming displays that support variable refresh rate. In addition, Arc Graphics supports Adaptive-Sync technology, which prevents screen tearing by dynamically synchronizing the monitor’s refresh rate with the graphics card’s frame rate.
As part of the demo, Shrout also ran Death Stranding at 3440×1440 pixels with HDR enabled. In this case, the Intel representative did not show the frame rate.
In the video, Shrout also clarified that Intel’s Arc Alchemist mobile and desktop graphics cards come standard with HDMI 2.0 support. However, the company’s partners are allowed to install a special chip on the accelerator, which allows the use of the HDMI 2.1 interface. However, this decision depends only on the desire of a particular manufacturer. An Intel representative also reminded that all Arc graphics cards support the DisplayPort 2.0 interface.
Intel again said nothing about the technical characteristics of the Arc A750 graphics card. From the rumors it is known that the accelerator has 28 Xe cores and is equipped with 8 GB of GDDR6 memory. In Arc-optimized games, it is said to deliver better performance than the GeForce RTX 3060. However, the Intel card is likely to be slower in non-optimized games.
