At the start of the Intel On trade fair, the manufacturer announced the availability of the Arc A770 discrete desktop graphics card: October 12th. With a price of 329 US dollars, Intel wants to attack top dogs like the RTX 3060 and 3060 Ti. According to Intel CEO Gelsinger, test samples are on the way and reviews are expected at the market launch.

Intel teased the more expensive competition with the aggressive price. However, it remains to be seen whether the performance will match in the end. The first solution Intel Arc A380 (test) largely failed due to the driver. It will soon be possible to see whether Intel has used the months.
