Fresh performance data of Intel Arc A580 desktop graphics card appeared in Ashes of the Singularity gaming test database.It's not the first time this model has been noted there.Last month the card was tested with graphic API Vulkan.In a fresh test, the novelty was tested using DirectX 11 and DirectX 12 graphics APIs.The results turned out to be ambiguous.Image source: IntelNow Intel has disclosed the technical specifications of the Arc A580.The gas pedal is built on the ACM-G10 graphics chip, which includes 24 Xe cores (3072 FP32 blocks), 24 ray tracing blocks, and 384 XMX matrix engines.The declared GPU frequency is 1700 MHz.It has 8 GB of GDDR6 memory with 16 GHz effective bandwidth, 256-bit bus bandwidth and 512 GB/s bandwidth.According to Intel, Arc Alchemist graphics cards are best optimized for DirectX 12 games, with Vulkan APIs offering slightly worse performance.Performance in games based on old DirectX 11 will be the worst.It is interesting that in recent gaming test Ashes of the Singularity our Arc A580 showed mediocre performance not only in DirectX 11 mode, but also with DirectX 12 API.Its performance was significantly worse than when using Vulkan API.In all cases the game test was run at 1080p resolution with average image quality settings.When using Vulkan, the card scored 9,300 points with an average frame rate of 95 FPS.Intel Arc A580 in Vulkin API modeThe card scored 2,800 points in DirectX 11 mode with an average frame rate of 30.6 FPS.In DirectX 12 mode, the card scored 6,600 points and 68.6 FPS.It is interesting that in DX11/12 mode it was worse than entry level Arc A380.Intel Arc A580 in DirectX 11 API modeIntel Arc A580 in DirectX12 modeThe below is a performance comparison table with other graphics cards provided by Tom's Hardware.There may be several reasons for such strange results.Maybe the CPU in the system used to test the Arc A580 is so severely limiting the performance that the GPU, which should be three times faster than the Arc A380, ends up being slower.Another reason could be the lack of optimization of its graphics driver or the disabled Resizable BAR (ReBAR) feature, without which the performance of Arc video cards drops significantly.Another assumption is that the Arc A580 tested, which for some reason has an RI suffix in its name, is a mobile version of a power-limited graphics card.It's also possible that it's not a full-fledged desktop Arc A580, and someone tricked the test into mistaking another graphics card for a desktop model.
Intel has named the official specifications for the Arc A770, Arc A750 and Arc A580 desktop gaming graphics cards
Intel has announced the official specifications for three desktop gaming graphics cards - Arc A770, Arc A750 and Arc A580.The first two will be available in the Limited Edition reference version as well as partner versions.The Arc A580 has no reference version.It will only be available as a non-reference solution from Intel partners.Image source: IntelThe Arc A770 uses a full-sized ACM-G10 GPU with 32 Xe cores (4096 FP32 blocks), 32 ray tracing blocks, and 512 XMX matrix engines.The graphics chip has a claimed frequency of 2100 MHz.As Intel explains, this figure reflects not the maximum, but the expected frequency of the GPU.In other words, depending on the load it may be higher or lower than that value.The card supports configurations with 8 and 16 GB of GDDR6 memory with an effective frequency of 17.5 GHz (17.5 Gbps).As Intel notes, in the latter case, the memory bus is 256-bit and its bandwidth is 560 GB/s. The Arc A750 uses a slightly stripped-down ACM-G10 processor with 28 Xe cores (3,584 FP32 blocks), 28 ray tracing blocks and 480 XMX matrix engines.The claimed expected GPU frequency is 2050 MHz.The card features 8GB of GDDR6 memory with a 16 GHz 16Gb/s effective bandwidth, 256-bit bus width, and 512GB/s throughput.Both graphics cards feature a claimed power consumption rating of 225W.The reference cards have one 8-pin and one 6-pin connector each.Both models provide PCIe 4.0 support. About the third model, the Arc A580, the manufacturer described in a little less detail.The company indicated that the card is built on an ACM-G10 graphics chip, which has 24 Xe cores (3072 FP32 blocks), 24 ray tracing blocks, as well as 384 XMX matrix engines.The declared GPU frequency is 1700 MHz.It has 8 GB of GDDR6 memory with 16 GHz effective bandwidth, 256-bit bus bandwidth and 512 GB/s bandwidth.Intel did not disclose power consumption figures for this model yet.In the Limited Edition reference graphics cards will be available for purchase through Intel's online store, various online retailers, as well as various retail chains.It was previously reported that the launch will be limited, \"only in key markets.\" The company has not yet disclosed pricing for the gas pedals.In addition, Intel is still not saying when the cards will go on sale.
Intel's Arc A580 desktop graphics card made its first mark in the Ashes of the Singularity gaming test
Test data on the Intel Arc A580 desktop graphics gas pedal appeared in the Ashes of the Singularity gaming test database.This model is the first time since the Arc A-series graphics were announced that it's been featured in any test, and there's virtually nothing known about the card in general.Now, all of Intel's attention is focused on the higher-end Arc A7 series gas pedals, and so far only the entry-level model Arc A380 has been found on sale.Image source: IntelThe Arc A580 was tested in Ashes of the Singularity game in the company of an engineering sample of Intel's 16-core processor.Nothing is known about the latter either.It could belong to any of the company's chip series, not necessarily the upcoming Raptor Lake.It is very likely that in this case we are talking about the test platform of Intel itself or one of its partners.Gaming test was run at 1080p resolution with medium image quality settings.The card scored 9300 points with an average frame rate of 95 FPS.While Ashes of the Singularity is one of the first games to support DirectX 12, the Arc A580 was tested using the Vulkan API. Source image: Ashes of the SingularityFor comparison, a GeForce RTX 3060 gas pedal shows between 75 and 95 fps in similar conditions.The test Ashes of the Singularity does not show complete information about the system, so it is unknown how much memory the Arc A580 has and whether the ReBAR function was active at the time of testing.Image source: VideoCardzIt should be noted that the Arc A580 is unlikely to compete with the GeForce RTX 3060.Intel itself has officially announced that this role is reserved for the older Arc A750.Features of the Arc A580 are not yet known.According to rumors, it may have 16 Xe cores and 8 GB of GDDR6 memory.
