Intel’s new Arc A 370M laptop was only able to convince in synthetic tests in the first test. In real gaming tests, it was regularly beaten by the Geforce GTX 1050 Ti and GTX 1060 phones, while the RTX 3050 was irreplaceable in the lead. Read more about this below.
Intel has postponed the launch of its Arc Alchemist models several times and, as a precaution, only launched its first dedicated graphics card, the Intel Arc A 380, in China. However, it is now known that the Arc A 380 will be beaten by the Radeon RX 6400 and that the Intel drivers still have a lot to do with the optimization. That didn’t happen with the Arc A 370M, a mobile branch based on the 4GB GDDR6 ACM G11 graphics chip, which can also be purchased in Western countries.

In the first test at Notebookcheck, an Arc A 370M with Intel Core i7-12700H and 16GB LPDDR5 memory was installed in an Asus Zenbook Flip 15 Q539. However, with the factory standard driver that has neither a beta case nor a prototype case, the picture is similar to that of the Arc A380 for desktop computers.
The Arc A 370M scores 3,885 points in the synthetic 3D Mark Time Spy and places itself below Nvidia’s Geforce RTX 3050 with 4,704 points. The older Geforce GTX 1060 Mobile achieves slightly lower performance with 3601 points. However, if you compare the gaming performance of these models with each other, you will notice that the Geforce GTX 1060, which was slower in synthetic tests, is noticeably faster in most cases.
In Full HD with maximum detail, the GTX 1060 Mobile can take a 50 percent lead over the Intel Arc A 370 M in The Witcher 3, while it’s 135 percent faster in the X-Plane 11. In FF XV, the two cards Geforce is 55% in favor, and in Dota 2, the 1060 Mobile is 73% faster than Intel’s offering. This in turn shows that Intel still has a lot of improvements and driver development ahead of it so that graphics cards can also implement their raw performance described in synthetic benchmarks in gaming.
