The comparisons are based on paper and not real-world or tested performance but we are excited to find out what the Intel Arc A-series have in store for its consumers.

Although there is still no definite news on when the Intel A series will be coming to the market, Intel has shared a series of 48 benchmarks showcasing how their graphics cards measure up against NVIDIA’s RTX 3060 models. Although, without the proper testing and benchmarks as well as pricing comparison, it still is quite difficult to tell how the A-series would compare versus the existing graphics cards of NVIDIA and AMD.
