If you’re looking for a budget 1080p gaming card, the arc a750 is a pretty good choice. It has decent performance and costs less than an RX 6600. However, it does fall behind the AMD card in some titles. In addition, the arc a750 isn’t very consistent in gaming performance. This makes it important to check out a few benchmarks and videos before making a decision.
The arc a750 uses the Intel Alchemist GPU architecture. This GPU has a lower CPU core count than the RX 6600 but has more FP32 cores and double the memory bus width. The result is that the arc a750 performs slightly better than the RX 6600 on average but it can’t beat it in every title.
Techtesters compared the arc a750 with the non-XT Radeon RX 6600 and found it to be around 3% slower on average at 1080p. However, it does beat the RX 6600 at 1440p. Moreover, the arc a750 consumes significantly more power in idle than the Radeon card. This can add up to significant energy costs over time, especially if you have a high electricity rate.
The arc a750 is available for $249 at various retailers. It competes directly with the AMD Radeon RX 6600, which is often priced slightly lower at popular retailers. Microcenter, for example, has a number of AMD RX 6600 cards in stock for under $250. This is the price point most gamers will be interested in, and AMD is likely to win this market segment based on its lower prices and driver stability.
