Summary

Intel is officially announcing pricing for its top Arc graphics card today. The top-of-the-line Arc A770 will arrive on October 12th, starting at $329. This price matches that of Nvidia’s RTX 3060, a card that the A770 is expected to comfortably outperform.

Quote

“We’ve been seeing that for a long time the price of GPUs is right in this $200–$300 range, but what’s happened in the last few years is that they’ve gotten super expensive,” says Intel CEO Pat Gelsinger. “You should be frustrated because you are losing out as the gaming community, and today we’re fixing that.”

 

My thoughts

I think that's a great price to launch it at. Though, I hope they have enough inventory to actually make any difference. I personally would have bought it to try but I bought 3070 Ti is out of the return window.

If nothing else it will help to put a dent into NVIDIA's "The era of cheap video cards is at an end" mindset.  Maybe NVIDIA will think twice about trying to price gouge the 4060 and 4070 if they know they've got more competition biting at their heels.

Only annoying thing with the graph given is that they express the performance difference in percentages, which dosent really help if we don't know how the 3060 performed. I'd like to see it against the 6600xt since that'll probably be it's closest competitor

6650XT. I think AMD doesn't really make many 6600XT's anymore so the price between these two is almost equal.

It's weird. It's closer to 6700XT in EU. 

 

6000XT starts at 380€

6650XT at 425€

6700XT at 460€

 

The difference between 6600XT and 6650XT is not worth the price so you may as well grab 6700XT.

 

6600 starts at 320€ so A770 just have to beat that one to be good.

Ship it! 😄 

 

I'd love to see how pricing goes lower down the stack, and when those of us with the discount vouchers from their earlier scavenger hunt can actually use them. Hope availability is worldwide too.

 

As of pricing vs competition, keep in mind Intel know there will be rough edges. Where it works, it'll work great, but there will be weak areas too. That is factored into the price. They just need to get going at all, even if it means not making a good profit in the short term.

It actually looks interesting. All of it. Been wanting Intel to come into the market since Knight Landing as a dedicated GPU failed.

That's not what I'm seeing on Amazon.de

 

6600XT 354Eur

6650XT 364Eur

6700XT 484Eur

6750XT 519Eur 

 

My local prices are higher than all of these tbh, but Amazon shipping is only 10 Euros.

I'm from Slovakia so I checked local pricing, Germany tends to be cheaper

I'm seriously considering one, especially at this price. It's really ironic, I'll have an all red gaming PC (Ryzen 5950X RX 6800XT) and an all blue server/browsing/NAS/transcode box (Xeon E3 1280V3 and A770).

 

Next on the list, an ARM based machine with a NVidia card?

Probably for gaming. There's also a pretty big chance that it'll get dropped into a different system; I'm going to get a new case, board, PSU, and SSD, and move my 5950X/6800XT into a new box, and put my 3900XT back in my SFF box, but I'll need a GPU. The 1280V3 might get retired soon, no way for me to set it up with 10G ethernet, and I'm aiming that way for upgrading.

I could pull the Xeon out and drop my i5 4440 back in it... 😮

It's got twice the threads, with a base clock higher than the i5's boost clock, so yeah, it kept that machine gaming for 2 extra years.

 

I don't think I'm getting another Xeon for a long time, though. D:

I've actually never, ever, had an all AMD or all Intel system before, and now I'll have one of each? My dain is bramaged, leave me alone. 😧

I hope the drivers improved significantly otherwise there's little point to buy it. But price seems fine if the performance claims can be backed up. 

^This

So far, Intel seems to be taking driver development seriously based on feedback. Obviously due to ensuring a good launch of Arc. The question remains how long they will keep up the momentum; because they have a quite a mountain to climb to get where Nvidia is at. In fact, AMD isn't even close to where Nvidia is too, but they're way head of Intel in that regard.

Intel does have igpu experience up the wazoo so not sure that it's a mountain or a hill

To be honest their igpu drivers seemed to always work for what they are
