One thing to stay up for: For some time now, rumors have pegged the efficiency of at the least considered one of Intel’s upcoming discrete desktop GPUs at across the stage of Nvidia’s RTX 3070 or 3070 Ti. The most recent leaked benchmark for what appears to be the top-end Intel GPU lends additional assist to those rumors.
This week, a benchmark for an Intel graphics card appeared on Sisoftware, and it appears to compare favorably in opposition to Nvidia’s RTX 3070 Ti. The positioning scores the cardboard when it comes to stats like clock velocity, GP compute (at a number of ranges of precision), and effectivity.
The benchmark doesn’t identify the Intel card (solely lists the driving force), however it’s undoubtedly the rumored high-end Intel Xe HPG 512 EU primarily based on its stats. It’s proven to have 4096 ALUs, 512 EUs, and—oddly—12.8GB of VRAM. Earlier rumors gave the Xe HPG 512 EU 16GB of RAM (above).
The GPU on this check has a clock velocity of two.1GHz, however we don’t know if it is a base or enhance clock. In both case, it beats the 1.8GHz clock of a 3070 Ti in the identical benchmark (under).
The RTX 3070 Ti wins in single-float GP compute at 25,810.54 megapixels per second versus the Intel card’s 20,888.29. Nevertheless, the Intel beats the 3070Ti in half-float at 35,093.25 versus 35,072.61Mpix/s, double-float at 1,000.31 versus 571.93Mpix/s, and quad-float at 109.46Mpix/s versus 21.62Mpix/s.
The 3070 Ti wins barely in Sisoftware’s total velocity effectivity stat, however the Intel GPU ranks barely greater amongst GPUs total (each are within the 99th percentile). Nonetheless, we probably will not know the way the Arc Alchemist GPUs stack up till they’re within the wild and correct recreation benchmarks present up.
Earlier rumors positioned one other mid-range Intel mannequin as a competitor to the RTX 3060 and a lower-end mannequin in opposition to the GTX 1650—although with ray tracing and Intel’s DLSS competitor XeSS, which the 1650 lacks. They’re alleged to launch in March.
