Intel Arc A370M Entry-Level Laptop Gaming GPU Benchmarked, Performance Close To A NVIDIA GTX 1650 SUPER


Intel's entry-tier Arc A370M graphics card based on the Alchemist Xe-HPG architecture has been benchmarked and shows performance close to the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 SUPER graphics card.

Intel Arc A370M Alchemist Gaming GPU For Entry-Level Laptops Benchmarked, Close To NVIDIA GTX 1650 SUPER Performance

The Intel Arc A370M graphics card was spotted within the SiSoftware Sandra benchmark database by TUM_APISAK. The graphics chip is designed for entry-level laptops and features specifications similar to the desktop-grade Arc A380 which we have seen in countless leaks before. While the GPU would carry the same core configuration, it is likely to feature lower clock speeds and a lower TDP since it is designed for the mobility platform.

The specifications list down the Intel Arc A370M graphics chip to feature 160 EUs but those are not correct since the database is combining the EU count of both the discrete GPU and the integrated UHD 770 GPU. As such, it's 128 EU for the Arc A370M and 32 EUs for the UHD 770 iGPU. The dGPU also features 4 GB GDDR6 memory and runs across a 128-bit bus interface which is not reported by the benchmarking software. Additionally, while a 1.55 GHz clock speed is mentioned, it is hard to tell if this is for the iGPU or the dGPU.

With that said, the performance numbers for the Intel Arc A370M look pretty decent considering it still needs to get finalized drivers. The graphics card scored 2,399.97 Mpix/s in the GP(GPU) tests & an individual score of 10,612.4, 5,208.4, 250.09, & 27.40 Mpix/s in half, single, double, & quad float GP tests, respectively. This performance level brings the Arc A370M close to the GeForce GTX 1650 SUPER from NVIDIA which scores 2,568.82Mpix/s and faster than AMD's Radeon RX 580, which scores 2292.97 Mpix/s in the same benchmark.

Being on par or faster than the NVIDIA entry-level GeForce GTX 1650/GTX 1660 Series is where we are expecting the Intel Arc DG2-128 GPUs to land in terms of performance. The latter GPUs will be coupled with a range of modern features such as Ray-Tracing and XeSS along with better hardware encoding/decoding algorithms.
