Following an Intel graphics accident is like watching a slow-motion highway pile up

Intel’s first Arc-generation discrete graphics card — the first attempt at gaming graphics in years — is finally here. in an incredible price (opens in new tab). This also means that we will get an independent performance evaluation of the discrete Arc A380 Alchemist GPU. And it doesn’t look good.

Honestly, I’m still trying to figure out the exact reason for Intel’s approach. But whatever the reasoning behind its release as Intel’s pioneering foray into discrete graphics, the Arc A380 looks like a GPU that isn’t even close to Nvidia’s previous-generation GTX 1650.
