The Intel Arc A770 graphics card is the subject of aggressive new promotions. Acer’s version is now available for $249.99 in the United States. This attractive price also includes the Assassin’s Creed Mirage game, which has an official value of 40 euros. This offer makes the A770 particularly interesting for those who want to find themselves an interesting card without having to sell a kidney… But in Europe we’re still a long way from this price.
Better still, in the USA, the A770’s little sister, the Intel Arc A750, is also the subject of special offers, at $179. This card is presented as the best option in its price category on the market. It is capable of using advanced scaling technologies such as Intel XeSS, as well as other open source solutions such as AMD FSR.
An often underestimated card that just keeps getting better
In terms of performance, the Intel Arc A770 has shown significant driver improvements, although there are still aspects to be fine-tuned. Depending on the game, the A770 can rival an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4060. More generally, it can be safely positioned ahead of a GeForce RTX 3060 Ti. In the worst case, it remains slightly faster than a GeForce RTX 3060.
One appreciable aspect of the A770 is its 16 GB VRAM memory configuration, which ensures a certain life expectancy given the evolution of games. To give you an idea, during Black Friday, an RTX 4060 with 8 GB VRAM was available for $289.
The Intel Arc A770 and A750 graphics cards have created an interesting dynamic on the market, particularly in the entry-level graphics card segment. Their presence forced competitors such as AMD and NVIDIA to gradually reduce their prices in the face of Intel’s performance upgrades. In Europe, these cards are still struggling to make inroads. Intel is expected to continue improving its GPU drivers to keep up the pressure on its rivals and gradually gain a foothold in the graphics card market.
