Intel continues to make headway on improving performance and fixing various bugs in Starfield for players who are running the game on an Arc graphics card. The latest salve comes in the form of an eyebrow-raising Arc GPU driver release. We mean that quite literally—according to the release notes, Intel's 31.0.101.4676... Read more...
Okay, maybe "need" in our headline is a bit extreme. Don't try telling that to folks who are having a bear of a time getting up and running smoothly in Starfield on their Arc A770 or other Alchemist-based graphics card, though. In a statement last week, Intel said it was "aware of issues" with the game and was... Read more...
Aptly named mini PC specialist Minisforum announced its HN2673 computer back in June. However, the firm has just put this new Neptune Series compact PC up for pre-order, and there's a nice discount to be had on the various configurations. The Minisforum product pages reveal a CPU and GPU combo in the HN2673 that... Read more...
ASRock has added a new Intel Arc A380 graphics card to its stables. This might have passed without comment, and ASRock hasn’t published a press release for this product, but this is notable for being the firm’s first ever low-profile (LP) graphics card design. The Arc A380 is very much the junior member of the Arc... Read more...
We're accustomed to seeing GPU driver updates delivering modest performance gains in games, and sometimes even big ones to the tune of a double-digit percentage jump of up to around 20 percent. So it goes with Intel's newest Arc GPU driver—version 31.0.101.4514 in beta form—but according to Intel, it's also optimized... Read more...
It's one of the most basic axioms of building a PC: make sure you have enough CPU for your GPU. That goes both ways, though; if you're building a gaming PC, there's no point spending out hundreds of dollars for a high-end CPU when you're going to slap a mid-range or mediocre GPU into it. This rings true even more now... Read more...
For the second time in about a four-week span, you can score a factory-overclocked Intel Arc A770 graphics card with 16GB of video memory for $60 below its list price. It's one of the best values in gaming GPUs right now, and while the Arc A770 is obviously not in the same league as a GeForce RTX 4090 or Radeon RX... Read more...
CD Projekt Red recently rolled out an update to Cyberpunk 2077 that adds support for Intel's XeSS upscaling technology and according to Intel, owners of its Arc series discrete GPUs can expect a fairly substantial performance bump. As in, a massive 71 percent increase in average framerates when playing on an Arc A750... Read more...
Graphics card shipments fell off a cliff last year, with total shipments declining 38 percent versus the previous year. That includes a 24 percent drop in desktop GPUs and a massive 43 percent downward swing in laptop GPUs, marking the largest decrease since peaking in 2011, according to the latest report from Jon...

After releasing an Arc GPU driver tuned for Hogwarts Legacy and Returnal last week, Intel's software engineers are keeping the pedal firmly pressed to the metal with yet another update, this time with "Game On" optimizations for no less than five titles. For anyone keeping count, this is Intel's fifth Arc graphics... Read more...
At the risk of making a mountain out of a mole hill, Intel deserves a hearty pat on the back for its latest Arc GPU driver release. That's because it's optimized for Hogwarts Legacy, which is due to release in earnest later this week on February 10, 2023. Getting in front of the 8-ball on a much-anticipated game... Read more...
Intel is shuffling things up a bit within its graphics division, and is essentially splitting its Accelerated Computing Systems and Graphics Group (AXG) while reassigning Raja Koduri to his previous Intel Chief Architect role. This raises the question of what will become of Intel's Arc graphics roadmap, and in... Read more...
Intel has released a new Game On driver for its Arc Alchemist series of graphics card. A highlight of the new driver is that it delivers performance improvements across a raft of games, with particular gains at 1440p. This driver, version 31.0.101.3802 (Beta), also adds optimized support for Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0... Read more...
Intel Arc A750 And A770: Starting At $289 The highly anticipated Intel Arc A750 and A770 Limited Edition discrete GPUs have arrived, offering competitive performance and pricing.

Join us on today’s Two and a Half Geeks livestream where Dave, Marco, and Chris will be joined by Tom “TAP” Petersen of Intel for a special interview. What’s so special? We are going to be fielding YOUR questions about Intel’s Arc Graphics platform for TAP to answer. You can just kick back, watch and listen here at... Read more...
Intel's journey into modern discrete GPU territory with its Arc graphics effort has been interesting, to say the least. It's also been a bit more staggered than most people hoped. Though to be fair, it's not easy designing a brand-new architecture from the ground up and then optimizing it for public consumption... Read more...
Intel has published another episode of the Tom and Ryan Show. This time, the hot topic is Ray Tracing on Intel’s slowly emerging line of Arc Alchemist discrete GPUs. While it is interesting to hear about real-time ray tracing on Intel hardware, and the underlying technology, we are most interested in Intel’s... Read more...
Intel’s first Arc Alchemist graphics card sold through a major US retailer looks set to drop on Monday. Major online PC and electronics dealer Newegg has listed the ASRock Intel Arc A380 Challenger ITX 6GB OC today. This compact single fan ‘ITX’ card is listed by Newegg at $139.99, which falls in line with... Read more...
Intel would obviously love it if your next PC paired one of its Core processors with an Arc-powered graphics card, like the Arc A750 or A770 (neither of which is actually available yet, but should be soon). That doesn't mean it's going to shun support for AMD's platforms with its GPUs, though. That would be ludicrous... Read more...
One of the key characteristics we've seen so far in Arc graphics card benchmarks is a predominant softness in DirectX 11 titles versus those using the newer DirectX 12 and Vulkan APIs. The latter two APIs are much lower-level interfaces, giving game programmers greater control over the hardware. As a result, there's a... Read more...
Oh no, Intel's discrete desktop graphics cards might not be great at mining, what in the world will we ever do!? Perhaps rejoice if you're a gamer, content creator, or anyone who has no interest whatsoever in cryptocurrency mining. At least for the time being, it appears as though Intel's GPU drivers for its Arc... Read more...
Intel has formally introduced its upcoming Arc A750 desktop graphics card, and with the introduction comes an initial set of internally run benchmarks comparing performance to NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 3060 in a handful of games. As you might imagine, the selected benchmarks shine a positive light on the A750 as a capable... Read more...
