Intel Arc graphics cards are not compatible with older games. They will run slower than Nvidia/AMD cards. Framerate drops are common in games that use the DirectX 11 or DirectX 9 graphics APIs. This was explained by the company’s inability to optimize games for new cards.
Tom Petersen, an Intel Graphics spokesperson, explained that DirectX 11 games would run as smoothly as other cards, but some may be slower. This is likely due to the unique characteristics of the video card driver. For memory management, older GUIs depend on the GPU driver.
Petersen stated that Intel requires more time to optimize graphics cards for gaming. He also clarified that Intel cards function very differently from Nvidia counterparts.
He clarified that Arc accelerators are optimized for games using the DirectX 12 or Vulcan APIs. The Intel Arc A770 card’s Shadow of the Tomb Raider produced approximately 80 FPS using DX12. DX11 produced 40 FPS, while the same rate was achieved with Shadow of the Tomb Raider.
In China earlier, the A380 video card was introduced in the MSI version.
