Intel Arc 770
The Arc 770 is a Intel graphics card that runs DirectX 12 Ultimate in its ACM-G10 variant. It is manufactured on the 6nm process and is based on the DG2-512 graphics processor. This ensures that all modern games will run on the Arc A770. In addition, DirectX 12 Ultimate supports hardware raytracing, variable-rate shading, and more in future video games.
The DG2-512 graphics processor is a large chip with a die area of 406 mm2 and 21,700 million transistors, which features 4096 shading units, 256 texture mapping units, and 128 ROPs. The Arc 770 has 16GB of GDDR6 memory, which is connected to it via a 256-bit memory interface.
The GPU runs at a frequency of 300 MHz, which can be boosted to 1650 MHz, while the memory runs at 1500 MHz (12 Gbps effective) and its power consumption is limited to 120 W. Arc 770 is connected to the rest of the system using a PCI-Express 4.0 x16 interface, but it has no display output, because it was not designed to be connected to monitors.

Expected Price and Availability
Intel Arc A770 Price and Availability Initial leaks suggested that the Intel Arc A770 will cost around USD 400 when it comes on the market, but Linus says it could be even cheaper.
Linus revealed the Intel Arc A770’s default clock speed of 2.5GHz and power of 190W during the overclocking segment, after raising the power and temperature limits to 285W and 125°. An attempt to get a 30% performance boost was unsuccessful and ultimately destroyed the card.
Conclusion – Intel Arc 770 Specs, Benchmark And Leaks
Although vague, it can be seen that the GPU Performance Boost is set at around 20%, while the power limit is set at 190W, which can be increased to a staggering 285W. The temperature ceiling, at 125C, is the most significant and alarming figure. Such a temperature would instantly kill even the most power-intensive AMD GPUs from the past. The Intel Arc 770 still has not been officially released, but the Arc A380 for the average consumer has now been launched in China. Intel isn’t backing down from its promises to topple NVIDIA with the A770 and improved drivers.
