Wochenrück- und Ausblick: Die erste Intel-Grafikkarte und Spielen mit 40 FPS

Weekly Review & Predictions: Intel’s first gaming and graphics card with 40fps

The focus of the week was testing of Intel’s first Alchemist-generation discrete graphics card, the Arc A380. ComputerBase, along with two other German editors, imported the Gunnir Arc A380 Photon 6G and put it through its paces. All three journals encountered numerous errors.

When all goes well, the performance of the Intel Arc A380 is not too bad. The performance is a little less than that of the Radeon RX 6400 and GeForce GTX 1650, especially since the power efficiency is not impressive, but the Arc A380 could really work as a low-cost product. But several bugs in the driver ensure that players will not for the time being enjoy the Arc A380. Crashes, graphic errors, bad frame speed, malfunctioning fan control, and other problem areas were noted in testing, so there’s still plenty of work for the Intel driver team.

40fps plays well on a 120Hz screen

The 40fps setting for console games like Horizon Forbidden West, Spider-Man: Miles Morales, and Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart made it second in the articles, which is a good compromise for a 120Hz screen for better gameplay. And better graphics compared to the traditional 30fps and 60fps modes. However, 60Hz TVs cannot display 40fps modes correctly; It needs a 120Hz model to do this (one frame is shown three times before switching to the next).

Resident Evil series is really scary

Resident Evil reached number one in the reports. But this time it is not about a game, but the series on Netflix, which is not particularly popular with fans. A horror movie isn’t terribly scary, it’s just horrific. Critics are more moderate, but the overall reviews are below par.

More Intel Arc A380 next week

The Intel Arc A380 topic is far from over at ComputerBase. Over the next week there will be another article dedicated to AMD Ryzen with Intel graphics and there will be a decent surprise in that regard. Overclocking will also be covered and the Gunnir Custom Design Fan Stop will also appear.

With this reading material in your luggage, the editors wish you a relaxing Sunday!
