Might be a little premature for that headline... let's wait a couple months for when reviewers have real hardware and drivers before making big claims either way.

It is now only synthetic benchmarks and speculations. We should wait when real Arc cards will appear together with test results from real games. Only then it will be possible to conclude something.

That is a misleading meaningless headline.
If the card has stable drivers(Probably the biggest question) and performs in the ballpark somewhere around a 3060ti, it won't matter, retailers won't be able to keep them on the shelves.

Until there are actual cards running real world gaming benchmarks there is little point.

The AMD equivalent would be Radeon RX 6700 XT (Big Navi).
Amateur writer and click bait title, again. This guy writes about GPUs and does not even know the meaning of the words he uses... RX 6700 XT is not Big Navi.

Tom's is not only full of snowflakes that get you banned for calling them muppets for being that, but also the quality of writers and articles is going down the toilet. Pathetic.

What kind of benchmark is OpenCL ? I know OpenCl was available in Blender but was recently replaced by AMD HIP.

it was supposed to be the first open source API standard for compute (be it CPU or GPU). an alternative to hardware specific API such as CUDA (Nvidia) or STREAM (AMD) or other proprietary compute API such as Direct Compute (Microsoft).

I think game benchmark or Cinebench would provide more deeper results how Alchemist is far from 3070. Nvidia had project showing cinematic ray-traced scenes running in real time on Unreal Engine 4. Intel should use this for better comparison.
