Let’s get started with intel. So, the company has been touting their gpu’s for a couple of years now, and it's only recently that they unveiled some specs. Specifically, the specs of their mobile GPUs. We have 3 different categories, the ARC A3, A5, and A7 series. The A3 series is supposed to be available already, at least for specific Asian markets, and the A5 and A7 series are supposed to start showing up later this month in early summer.
Now in a previous video, I basically said that by having their gpu’s launch so late, the company lost all of the advantages they had against AMD and Nvidia, and I still think that for the desktop market. On the laptop side, well, Laptop GPU’s usually come after the desktop ones, so if intel actually delivers, they might have a chance to gain a lot of market share. But that’s only if they can deliver on the performance side too!
This brings me to today’s news. A benchmark for the A730M just popped up and it's actually pretty impressive. The A730M is the second-best GPU that intel is cooking up with 24 execution units, 24 ray tracing units, and 12GB of GDDR6. And the benchmark that was leaked is a TimeSpy, so we’re actually getting a good glimpse into its gaming performance.
So, the A730M allegedly scores 10107 points. That’s faster than an RTX 3070 laptop gpu at its max TDP rating, and faster than some 3070 ti’s and 3080’s that have crippled TDP’s. And once again, that’s not intel’s top of the line GPU here. The A 770M has 33% more cores than the A730M which should mean the same increase in performance.
