Have you been frustrated at the crazy prices being asked for GPUs these days? For many content creators and gamers, even mid-range graphics cards have become prohibitively expensive over the last few years.

If you’re planning a GPU upgrade in the near future, we have some excellent news: Intel’s new Arc 7 graphics cards seem to offer the perfect combination of high power and modest cost. The long-awaited Arc A770 and A750 GPUs offer 32 Xe and 28 Xe cores, respectively, with at least 8GB of memory. Intel claims that the Arc A750 will outperform an Nvidia RTX 3060 — and the best part is that the new card will retail for under $350.

If you’re less interested in building a PC from scratch, and would rather purchase a pre-made system, don’t worry — Intel’s Arc GPUs are already creeping into various readymade machines:

  • The ABS Stratos Aqua system is a fantastic gaming rig. With the onboard Intel GPU’s Xe SuperSampling technology, Counter Strike missions are guaranteed to look silky smooth, with realistic shadows and reflection detail.
  • The Thermaltake LCGS Quartz features an Intel Arc A750 GPU and will help creatives make better content in less time. AV1 hardware encoding support and Intel’s XMX AI capabilities make 3D animation and editing effortless.
  • The iBUYPOWER SlateHako2120i desktop would make a fantastic choice for gamers who like to live stream their sessions. Intel’s Deep Link technology features built-in background removal, auto camera framing, and plenty of options that make it simple to stream like a pro.

As you can see, Intel’s new cards should add plenty of variety to the current PC landscape, especially at such competitive prices. Whether you’re looking for a killer new gaming rig, a video editing powerhouse, or a content creation beast, these new GPUs are definitely worth checking out.
