Intel Arc A380 fails miserably in first review - up to 26% slower than Radeon RX 6400

Intel has lifted the ban on publishing reviews of its Arc A380 desktop graphics card.
And in the first independent test the novelty with a bang lost even the entry level model AMD Radeon RX 6400.Image source: Bilibili / ShenmedounengceThe non-standard Gunnir Arc A380 Photon graphics card was tested by Chinese reviewer Shenmedounengce, who checked the novelty in synthetic 3DMark tests, as well as in a number of games.
And if in the first case, the novelty showed itself quite well, then with games the situation was much worse.
The card has been tested with Core i5-12400 processor, Intel B660 motherboard and DDR4 RAM.
For comparison with the Intel Arc A380, the reviewer used GeForce RTX 3050, GeForce GTX 1650, as well as Radeon RX 6500 XT and RX 6400 graphics cards.
The Intel Arc A380 is based on the ACM-G11 graphics processor, which includes eight Xe cores running at 2.45 GHz.
The gas pedal got 6 GB of GDDR6 memory with 92 bit bus support and 15.5 Gbit/s per pin.In 3DMark benchmarks Intel's card performed well.
In the Timespy test, Intel's new product confidently beat the GeForce GTX 1650, Radeon RX 6400 and RX 6500 XT graphics cards, and not too significantly behind the GeForce RTX 3050.
In the 3DMark Port Royal test, which evaluates gas pedals in ray tracing, the Intel Arc A380 was almost twice as fast as the Radeon RX 6400 and RX 6500 XT, but still was more than 3.5 times slower than the GeForce RTX 3050.
The game tests used were League of Legends, PUBG, GTA V, Shadow of Tomb Raider, Forza Horizon 5 and Red Dead Redemption 2.
All were run at 1080p resolution.
Unfortunately, in none of them the Arc A380 was able to catch up even with the youngest Radeon RX 6400 model.
At best, the gap was about 7%, and in some games Intel gas pedal lost in terms of performance by 26%.
Recall that the launch of the Intel Arc A380 took place only in China.
In the official sale of the new product has not yet appeared.
Its declared recommended price is about $150.
