Not sure what's with the weird intel bias in this thread. The reputable reviewers are not recommending the new Intel cards over what AMD is offering in the same price bracket:

Hardware Unboxed:

Gamers Nexus:

Best to wait until AMD announces their new cards, but it will likely be cards in the $500+ range with lower range cards coming later.
I think it is the sour grapes from getting price gouged for years by Nvidia and AMD. A third party is definitely needed.

I'd agree though, the reviews don't look great until the software gets better. Although I was surprised and curious as to why Gamers Nexus completely ignored ray tracing in it's review.
GN Ignored it for one of 3 reasons, Time crunch is more then likely it. Two, most games that people actually play still dont have RT or at least a good enough reason to turn it on for more then a quick "Oh this looks nice" before checking the tanked performance, and Poll after poll has shown people simply do not care for RT at the cost of performance, some games it can make it look much nicer, but you also have to use DLSS or the new XESS, which kind of defeats the purpose of RT imo.

Ray tracing is still two Generations away from native performance being properly viable without needing DLSS on NVidia, and Probably 3 Gens away on AMD. Intels RT stuff does look really promising, but the overall performance of these GPUS was such a let down i dont expect it to really make progress. The ARC 770 was supposed to be better then the 3070, yet it falls short of the 3060 or ties it. Its at least a start, but they have a lot to learn and get ready before they actually get any market share.

End of the day i want these products to succeed, more competition means better for us, but i refuse to be a beta tester for software and hardware when im paying full price for it when i can just buy one of the competitors products at the same or cheaper price (especially used since these cards are 1-2 years old now) with much more mature drivers and software, and support for older games that isnt broken.

Thanks OP.

I have my eyes on this earlier and it's more pricey at Amazon.
I'm in need of a budget and decent card so I placed an order. Upgrading from RTX 1070 and building a new computer, so I hope this will serve me well with my limited budget.

Anyone knows anything to overclock or playing around with boosting it up? This is my first AMD card. Many thanks!

I think the Arc A770 16GB (small price difference for double RAM) and A580 are interesting in theory. In practice, Intel can't be trusted to support the products.

A380 performance is pretty weak even without driver problems, only the 6 GB VRAM is nice. A310 could be a good replacement for the GT 1030, having AV1 decode/encode and display outputs.

I'm actually pretty excited about Intel going forward. They created a pretty decent early attempt that is only subpar due to what appears to be horrific optimization. Once they fine tune things a bit, they will at some point create a competitive product. Assuming they stick with it.

All that said...definitely still holding the line. My old 1070 is still going strong enough for now.

Keep in mind that software might need to be optimized in order to make the most out of the hardware... Patches for games etc. that make for better Intel Arc compatibility
