Intel hits out at RTX: ‘We’re definitely competitive or better than Nvidia with ray tracing hardware’

Intel is confident it has designed its upcoming A770 and A750 graphics cards to match Nvidia’s RTX 30-series GPUs, or perhaps even surpass them, in ray tracing performance.

In the run-up to the release of Intel’s Arc A770 and A750 graphics cards, I sat down with Ryan Shrout and Tom Petersen from the Intel Graphics team to talk performance and expectations for its upcoming cards. For the most part, Intel’s expectation of performance to match Nvidia’s RTX 3060 (opens in new tab) in games running DirectX 12, but you might be surprised to hear that Intel is also extremely confident in the efficiency of its first generation ray tracing acceleration units.
