Discussion INTEL's upcoming Arc A750 GPU demoed in "Death Stranding" game with over 100 FPS at 4K


It appears that Intel has showcased some new capabilities of its upcoming Arc graphics card lineup using the Arc A750 Limited Edition. The technologies were showcased by Ryan Shrout in a new video published on Intel's Arc Graphics YouTube channel and a detailed blog which you can read here.

Ryan states that all Intel Arc graphics cards, including the Arc A750 Limited Edition, which was used in this demo, will support VRR (Variable Refresh Rate) as per the official VESA standard. The technology which is known to many as Adaptive Sync will deliver a smooth frame rate by synchronizing the monitor's refresh rate with the FPS you get in-game.

The monitor used was an Acer 4K 120Hz display which ran in sync with the 80-100 FPS that the graphics card delivered while running Death Stranding Directors cut. Intel states that they will be validating over 100 VRR displays to deliver a great gaming experience on the Arc A700 series family which is going to launch relatively soon.

Another thing Ryan talked about is the HDR capabilities. For this purpose, the same Intel Arc A750 Limited Edition graphics card and game were used but on a premium Alienware HDR QD OLED display. Intel only had their representative, Allyn, to verify that HDR was working & a proper demo was not provided since YouTube's compression algorithm cannot showcase the full HDR range that is showcased within the game.

Finally, we have a word on the HDMI capabilities of Intel's Arc graphics lineup. Ryan states that all Arc graphics cards and notebook GPUs support HDMI 2.0 natively but to access HDMI 2.1, partners can integrate PCON and convert a DisplayPort to HDMI 2.1. Both the Intel Arc A770 and Arc A750 Limited Edition graphics card support HDMI 2.1 through this very technique.


"As a perk of the job, I’m playing Death Stranding: Director’s Cut to show off all these features, starting with variable refresh rate, or VRR, or Adaptive Sync. VRR allows the monitor’s refresh rate and the GPU’s render rate to be in sync, reducing tearing and stutter from gaming experiences. In this demo, the game is running between 80 and 100 FPS on the Intel Arc A750 card. The changing framerate uses VRR to synchronize with the Acer 4K 120Hz screen that continuously adjusts its refresh rate to limit screen tearing.

Any adaptive sync certified display will do the same and should work with Intel Arc graphics, but we’re validating 100+ top VRR displays to make sure you have an amazing experience when the Intel Arc A700 family of cards launch. Don’t forget about HDR – one of the more recent improvements in display technology that can really impact visual fidelity and gaming experiences. Running the same game on an Alienware HDR QD OLED monitor (which is a stunning display!) shows how great HDR looks on Intel Arc platforms.

The deep blacks, bright whites, and broader dynamic range are stunning on Death Stranding Director’s Cut’s indoor environments. But like all display technologies, it can be really hard to demonstrate over a virtual demonstration, so we utilized our “advanced HDR testing device” (codename Allyn) to highlight and validate HDR was working as expected". via Intel
