Intel finally detailed its new Arc A770 and Arc A750 graphics cards with everything we need to know: full specs, pricing, launch dates, the works.
The company has confirmed that it will offer its Arc A770 in both 8GB and 16GB variants, with Intel offering the Arc A770 with 8GB of GDDR6 memory starting at $329, while the Arc A770 with 16GB will cost $349. Intel will offer its Arc A770 Limited Edition graphics card with 16GB of memory for $349.

Intel provided some more details on its new Arc A750 graphics card, which will cost $289 – $30 cheaper than the Arc A770 – but will retain its 8GB of GDDR6 memory.
The company will launch its Arc A770 Limited Edition and Arc A750 Limited Edition graphics cards at launch via retail partners – on October 12th, the same day the RTX 4090 launches – what a day!
Inside, the new Intel Arc A770 graphics card features the full ACM-G10 GPU with 32 Xe cores and GPU clocks up to 2100MHz (custom Arc A770 cards have higher GPU clocks). The Intel Arc A770 Limited Edition features 16GB of GDDR6 memory on a 256-bit memory bus with up to 560GB/s of memory bandwidth.
Intel’s new Arc A770 Limited Edition graphics card requires an 8+6 pin PCIe power connector setup with a TDP of 225W.
The new Intel Arc A750 Limited Edition graphics card features a stripped down ACM G10 GPU with 28 Xe cores and GPU clocks up to 2050MHz (and again, custom Arc A750 cards will have higher GPU clocks). We have 8GB of GDDR6 memory on a 256-bit memory bus with up to 512GB/s of memory bandwidth.
Both Arc A770 + A750 Limited Edition graphics cards feature DisplayPort 2.0, with DP2.0 offering up to 8K 120Hz and 4K 240Hz over a single cable. NVIDIA’s next-gen Ada Lovelace GPU and GeForce RTX 40-series graphics cards don’t have DP2.0 connectivity, which I think is a huge mistake.
Intel prices its Arc A-series GPUs very competitively, noting that NVIDIA’s mid-range GeForce xTX x060-series GPUs have steadily increased from around $150 in 2012 to today’s average price of $418 for the RTX 3060 Ti + up are RTX 3060-class GPUs (at their launch, Intel notes).
The company compares its new Arc A770 to the RTX 3060 and says it has 42% more performance per dollar, while the new Arc A750 has up to 53% more performance per dollar over the RTX 3060. NVIDIA’s current-gen GeForce RTX 3060 is currently $400+ on Amazon at the time of writing.
