I love my little 3060 v1 card. It was cute just sitting there mining away for me. Shortly it will be replacing my GT730 2GB in my kid's school work PC.

But now that Intel has released the Arc series I have started thinking. And when I think I always end up spending money. Wife is gonna kill me. But, I want to support Intel. We need a 3rd player to the GPU market.

Does anyone have any real world experience with both of these cards? How is overall stability? What's the gaming like? I swear that my AMD cards had better output than my Nvidia cards. Has anyone noticed this with Arc?



Anyone interested in paying original MSRP for my 3090? LOL

to bad no new reviews with the newest intel drivers. looks like they fixed some performance issues in DX9 emulation layer.

It's going to be a bit of a moving target trying to keep up with drivers. When it works, it works fine. I found if I had the nvidia driver installed at the same time I can get random slow responsiveness which makes switching between GPUs more of a pain needing to DDU between.

I can't say I have encountered any problems with games, but I've not exactly ran a long list. The only "maybe" is Portal RTX wont start, but that's a bit of a special case for now.

It does looks like there is some interest out there for Arc GPUs. Did a couple of videos about A380 on my YouTube channel getting into the hundreds of views. My typical view rate is lucky to get into double figures! I knew it was no easy task and even then I under-estimated the work. Debating doing another video balancing useful content and ease to make. Maybe a guide to what I think are good settings in a selection of games with baked in benchmarks.

Arc was the first to support AV1 hardware encoding, and had they released it earlier they would have had a significant time advantage. By the time it actually came out nvidia more or less released 40 series, and we now have RDNA3 joining the party too. You could argue Intel still enables that at lower cost while red and green have only got very high end options right now.
