Intel's Arc A770M and A550M mobile graphics cards made their first 3DMark test

First results of performance tests of unreleased Intel Arc A770M and Arc A550M mobile graphics gas pedals appeared in 3DMark synthetic test database. Both solutions belong to the Arc Alchemist series, which is represented only in China so far, and only in the form of the younger models of the Arc A3 series. From Intel's mobile video cards only Arc A370M has been released so far, with older gas pedals still waiting for their release.

The appearance of the Arc A770M and Arc A550M graphics cards in the 3DMark database indicates that Intel has finally started the active testing phase of these gas pedals, which means that their debut could be in the coming weeks.

The Arc A550M, which is based on the ACM-G10 GPU with 16 Xe cores, scored 6017 when using driver version 1726 in the 3DMark Time Spy test. The gas pedal was tested with Intel APO (Advanced Performance Optimizations) function turned on, which speeds up the video card, which actually violates the rules of 3DMark itself. This function allows to get up to 15 % higher results in this test. Compared to the previously tested Arc A730M (also with APO feature turned on) the Arc A550M, which has half as many graphics cores, is about 67% slower.

The Intel Arc A770M senior mobile graphics card was tested in the 3DMark Fire Strike Extreme test, where it scored 13,244 points. This is about the level of the mobile GeForce RTX 3070 tested with the same Core i7-12700H processor. However, it should be noted that the synthetic test and the real performance of the gas pedal in games are two different things. The older card was tested using test driver version 9999. Such drivers are typically used by OEMs and system integrators. No word on whether the APO feature was enabled when testing the Arc A770M.

Intel itself has previously talked about the performance of the Arc 770M gas pedal. According to the company, the card is 12% faster in games than the mobile GeForce RTX 3060.
