AMD compares the RX 6500M graphics and the Intel Arc A370M, what a blow!

Intel has so far only presented its dedicated graphics cards for laptops. At the moment only laptops with Arc 3 graphics can be purchased, keeping the Arc 5 and Arc 7 for the summer. During the presentation, Intel monster some performance data, which is really not bad considering that they are from the entry-level graphics.

AMD will compare the Intel Arc A370M with its graphics for laptops

The comparison shows the AMD RX 6500M graphics card and the Arc A370M. Both graphics cards are entry-level and are designed for gaming laptops. Intel graphics is based on the full-type ACM-G11 silicon with 8 Xe-Cores (1024 FP32 cores). While AMD’s solution is based on the Navi 24 XM GPU with 16 Compute Units (1024 FP32 cores).

Something interesting is that both AMD and Intel graphics are manufactured under the same process. These two GPUs are based on the TSMC N6 process, come on, they are manufactured in 6nm by the Taiwanese foundry. But it is that, in addition, both use 4GB of GDDR6 memory. There is a small difference here and that is that the AMD graphics memory bus is 64 bits, while in the case of Intel it is 96 bits. The influence of this point is relative.

According to the slide published by AMD, its graphics for laptops is far superior in performance to that of Intel. What’s more, AMD indicates the number of transistors in each of the GPUs. As we can see, the Intel graphics card has quite a few more transistors than the RX 6500M.

But as we see, having more transistors does not make you superior in performance. The RX 6500M comfortably hits or exceeds 90 FPS in the same games shown by Intel. Just in the Strange Brigade, the performance is below 90 FPS. Indicate that these data are in 1080p resolution and with graphic quality in “medium”.

The first assault, a crushing defeat

Although the benchmarks of the brands must always be taken with tweezers, things look bad for the new Intel Arc A-Series. The comparison makes it clear that these new Intel graphics would still be far from their full potential. Possibly, driver optimization is missing or simply, this is it.

For several weeks there has been talk that the Intel Arc would reach the NVIDIA RTX 3070 in the best case. But it is that NVIDIA is months away from launching its new graphics cards, which promise to offer enormous performance. So it is of little use to catch up with the RTX 3070, since it could be the case that the reality in a few months is very different.

Obviously, it’s Intel’s first graphics card in years and it’s going to take a while for it to catch up with its competitors. AMD in some aspects has caught up with NVIDIA, but in Ray Tracing and DLSS (FSR in the case of AMD) there is still a notable gap.
