Intel Arc A750 and Arc A770 are to be released worldwide shortly, and ComputerBase is already taking a look at their basis today: the large Alchemist GPU ACM-G10, which is also available in the Intel notebook version Arc A730M stuck. Compared to the Arc A380, the performance increases significantly in the test.

State of the Arc

Actually, the first generation of Intel Arc based on the Alchemist architecture should have been on the market long ago. However, because this is still not the case, a brief summary of the status quo is required at the beginning of this test:

  • Intel Arc Alchemist includes two GPUs: the smaller ACM-G11 and the larger ACM-G10. Both are used in notebooks as well as in desktops. ACM-G11 as Arc A350M, A370M, A350 and A380, ACM-G10 as Arc A730M, Arc A770M, Arc A550, A750 and Arc A770.
  • Desktop: Intel has so far launched an Arc graphics card for desktop PCs: the Intel Arc A380 (test). The market launch took place in early summer in China. In July, ComputerBase used a copy it had imported on its own for its own test. The USA followed in August, and since mid-September there has also been a first custom design from ASRock in Germany. Intel no longer addresses the even smaller Arc A350 at all, but has announced the launch of the larger variants Arc A550, A750 and A770. Most recently, even CEO Gelsinger announced the imminent market launch on Twitter. However, there are still no templates for the press – will they still exist?
  • Notebook: Even before the Arc A380, the first notebooks with A370M and A350M came onto the market, and such systems are also available in homeopathic quantities in Germany. Notebooks with Intel Arc A730M (or Arc A770M) were also only available in China, where the first model went on sale in May.

This is now changing with the Medion Erazer Major X10: The notebook, which is available immediately from stock for 1,699 euros, is the first system in Germany that relies on the large Alchemist GPU ACM-G10 with the Intel Arc A730M – and in the absence of the desktop Graphics cards with this GPU are also the first platform ever to allow testing of the large GPU in Germany.

Intel Alchemist “ACM -G10” tested for the first time

The Arc A730M also promises significantly more performance than the Arc A380 for desktop PCs. Three times as many shaders, twice as much memory on an interface that is twice as wide and more power loss represent a much more powerful basis. As a mobile graphics chip, however, the Arc A730M is limited in its power consumption: Intel has defined a maximum of 120 watts for the GPU and Medion keeps it mind too. That's still 85 percent more than the Arc A380 for desktop PCs (65 watts), but a comparatively small step in relation to the execution unit premium.

The test pattern: Medion Erazer Major X10

Medion offers the Erazer Major X10 in exactly one configuration. It always relies on the combination of Intel Core i7-12700H and Intel Arc A730M 12 GB plus 32 GB of RAM and 1 TB NVMe SSD. Like the screen of the Corsair Voyager a1600 (test), the 16-inch display has a resolution of 2,560 × 1,600 pixels (QHD+), is 165 Hz fast and should be up to 400 cd/m² bright.

The keyboard has four zones of strong RGB lighting and the screen can be folded back 180 degrees. The chassis is primarily made of plastic, the A cover (i.e. the display cover) is made of aluminum.

The system is not based on Intel's own NUC X15 laptop kit, but on a barebone from Wintec. The price is 1,699 euros and can be delivered from stock.

Test results and benchmarks

ComputerBase compared the performance of the Medion Erazer Major X10 with Intel Core i7-12700H and Arc A730M 12 GB to a range of other current notebooks and desktop systems. The course was recently designed for the Radeon 680M & 660M vs. Iris Xe in the test: mobile iGPUs from AMD and Intel in a gaming duel recreated and also contains benchmarks that can evaluate the performance of dedicated graphics chips and iGPUs in applications such as Adobe or Handbrake.

However, there is one drop of bitterness: Since the editors do not currently have a notebook with a GeForce RTX 3000 laptop GPU, such systems are currently not represented at all. In turn, there are extensive comparisons with Radeon RX 6000 and AMD Ryzen 6000.

In order to be able to compare the results of the Arc A730M better with the GeForce camp, has the editors added measured values ​​of the GeForce RTX 3050 and GeForce RTX 3060 – and the Arc A380 for desktop PCs is also represented.

Performance profiles and MUX switch

Four different Arc A730M configurations were tested. On the one hand, the Medion Control Center offers three different performance profiles (turbo, gaming, office); in addition, a distinction was made between direct image output and output via the iGPU in the turbo profile.

  1. With 120 watt GPU power consumption (“Turbo”) on the external display (120 W, MUX)
  2. With 120 watt GPU power consumption (“Turbo”) on the internal display (120 W)
  3. With 80 watt GPU power consumption (“Gaming”) on the internal display (80 W)
  4. With 50 watt GPU power consumption (“Office”) on the internal display (50 W)

The Medion Erazer Major X10 has a MUX switch that can connect the internal display directly to the iGPU or the dGPU. The function is disabled because it didn't run correctly. This means that the Arc A730M always has to go through the iGPU's framebuffer to output the image to the internal display – which costs performance. A comparison of the benchmark entries “120 W” (via iGPU) and “120 W, MUX” (direct output of the dGPU via HDMI) shows how much. The editors tested the other profiles using the detour via the iGPU.

TGP and clock in practice

ComputerBase first had to find out which profile allows the graphics chip how much GPU power consumption, because Medion's tool does not reveal it. However, the telemetry data shown below, determined in 3DMark Time Spy, leaves no doubt about the defined upper limits. With a maximum of 120 watts and 80 watts, Medion is based on the interval officially specified by Intel. 50 watts are significantly lower.

3DMark Time Spy – Power Consumption 04080120160200Watts (W) 1102030405060708090100110120130140150160170180190200seconds

  • Arc A730M (Turbo, 120W)
  • Intel Arc A730M (Gaming, 80W)
  • Intel Arc A730M (Office, 50 W)
  • Intel Arc A380

The choice of profile names is quite confusing: “Gaming” suggests an excellent choice for gambling, but at least not much worse than “Turbo”. However, this is the case with a difference of 40 watts, as the following benchmarks show.

Synthetic tests

It is well known that Intel Arc performs well above average in well-known synthetic benchmarks such as 3DMark. And the Arc A730M is no exception.

In 3DMark Time Spy, the mobile graphics chip with 120 watts of GPU power is on par with a full-fledged GeForce RTX 3060 for desktop PCs , whose TDP (total consumption) is 170 watts – the total consumption of the Arc A730M is unknown. If ray tracing is activated (3DMark Port Royal), the order changes, but not the fact that both models don't give much away.

With only 80 watts, the performance is significantly lower: The gaming profile delivers 20 percent less FPS with 33 percent less GPU power consumption. If the GPU power consumption is throttled by a further 37.5 percent to 50 watts (“Office” profile), this results in a performance loss of 45 percent. The scaling from 50 to 120 watts is therefore very good: 140 percent more GPU power consumption results in 100 percent more performance in 3DMark Time Spy. The spread is even greater in 3DMark Port Royal.

In comparison The scaling also looks good compared to the Arc A380: The Arc A730M has three times more shaders and in the “Turbo” profile over 85 percent more power consumption, which translates into 100 percent or more performance gain.

Games performance

Synthetic benchmarks are one thing, gaming benchmarks are another – and at Arc is and will remain the topic par excellence. Regardless of whether it's FHD with low or high details, or WQHD with high details: On average, the Arc A730M now only achieves the level of the GeForce RTX 3050 for desktop PCs.

Performance Ratings

This is not due to the scaling within the architecture: the Arc A730M is still at least twice as fast as the Arc A380, and 33 percent more GPU power consumption is still required when jumping from 80 converted to 120 watts with almost 20 percent more power – but the level has fallen compared to the competition.

Individual results

Quasi a by-catch of this article is the weak performance of the Arc A380 under WQHD – ComputerBase had not previously tested this resolution on this model. But as the WQHD course shows, the desktop gaming graphics card in this resolution loses again compared to the GeForce RTX 3050, although the memory for Intel's model is 6 to 4 GB – the interface is smaller at 96 to 128 bits .

Compute and encoding performance

GPUs can do more than games, they can take over CPU tasks such as video editing or rendering via the shaders – provided they are controlled accordingly (CUDA, OpenCL etc.) – or they can efficiently and quickly “in hardware” produce videos via the integrated video decoder and encoder. decode and encode.

In this area, the performance of the Medion Erazer Major X10 proves to be an equal opponent for the GeForce RTX 3060. Whether encoding H.264 in H .265 or the encoding and simultaneous calculation of video effects (slow motion, fades, color grading) in Adobe Premiere Pro: Medion's notebook is right at the top.

In the event that a video is to be encoded in AV1 format, the Alchemist graphics card is even unrivalled: to date, only Intel's Arc series has mastered encoding from AV1 videos in hardware.

Stability and problems

With the Intel Graphics Beta Driver 31.0.101.3276, the Arc A730M presented itself significantly better than the Arc A380 with driver in July. Over the entire test period, there was only one crash in Anno 1800 when changing the resolution, otherwise the duo of driver and graphics card presented itself as stable. The editors only noticed graphics errors in 3DMark Port Royal, which tended to flicker. In Doom Eternal with activated ray tracing, the frame times were very bad, the game ran unevenly despite the high FPS. The other tests ran stably and error-free, which also applied to the professional applications.

A crash in Anno 1800 was the only dropout in this test

The Arc Control Center, which continues to run as an overlay, remains a nuisance. Not even screenshots (Windows key + print) are possible because the overlay intercepts these inputs. In addition, the Arc Control Panel repeatedly announced the availability of a driver update, which then failed to install – nor was it available separately on Intel.com.

Conclusion

With the Medion Erazer Major X10, the large Alchemist GPU ACM-G10 had to prove itself for the first time in the editorial test. As with the first time, the sample was not provided by Intel. At least the unauthorized import failed this time, the sample came from Medion.

The second encounter with Arc 1.0 turned out to be a much better experience on the software side than the first . The serious driver problems from July did not occur, even if not only the “Tier 1 games” advertised by Intel (DirectX 12 and Vulkan) were tested. The overlay control panel remains a nuisance.

The Medion Erazer Major X10 with Intel Arc A730M review

The comparatively low gaming performance outside of the synthetic benchmarks hasn't fundamentally changed. The scaling via shader and power consumption compared to the Arc A380 is good on average, but the starting point is also very low. It remains to be seen how much more performance the Arc A750 will be able to get out of 225 instead of 120 watts of GPU power consumption from the same number of shaders. It is reasonable to assume that marginal utility is falling.

The Arc A730M gives a more than convincing picture in the application benchmarks, where it again outperforms the assembled competition in AV1 encoding, is at the top in Adobe Premiere Pro in H.265 export including the calculation of video effects and otherwise delivers GeForce RTX 3060 level (the programs used do not use their RT or Tensor cores via CUDA).

Is the Medion Erazer Major X10 so worth the price? At 1,699 euros, the notebook faces a whole range of 16-inch 16:10 competitors with GeForce RTX 3050 Ti laptop GPU to GeForce RTX 3070 laptop GPU on the market, considering the 12th generation Intel Core, 32 GB RAM and 1 TB large SSD, however, it is the only one on the market.

With a focus on gaming, you shouldn't reach for the Erazer Major X10, the performance in games is too inconsistent and overall, and considering the power consumption, it's still too low. The situation is different with a focus on (creative) work. But even then, it is difficult to make a recommendation based on a sample that was once again not provided by Intel and against the background of the transparent handling of the Intel Arc “Alchemist” topic that was only feigned.

ComputerBase was loaned the Erazer Major X10 by Medion for testing. The manufacturer did not influence the test report and there was no obligation to publish it. There was no NDA.
