Intel’s new mobile Arc A370M was only able to convince in synthetic benchmarks in the first test. In actual gaming tests, it was regularly beaten by the mobile Geforce GTX 1050 Ti and GTX 1060, while the RTX 3050 isn’t available up front. Read more about it below.
Intel has repeatedly postponed the launch of its own Arc Alchemist models and, as a precaution, only launched the first dedicated graphics card, the Intel Arc A380, in China. Nevertheless, it is now known that the Arc A380 will be defeated by the Radeon RX 6400 and the Intel drivers still have a lot to do with optimization. Not so with the Arc A370M, a mobile offshoot based on the ACM G4 graphics chip with 6 GiB of GDDR11 memory, it can also be bought in Western countries.

In the first test at NotebookCheck, the Arc A370M was built into an Asus Zenbook Flip 15 Q539 with an Intel Core i7-12700H and 16 GiB of LPDDR5 memory. However, with a factory standard driver that has neither beta nor prototype status, the picture is similar to that of the Arc A380 for desktop PCs.
The Arc A370M Synthetic 3D scores 3885 points in Time Spy and puts itself below Nvidia’s Geforce RTX 3050 with 4704 points. An older Geforce GTX 1060 mobile achieves slightly lower performance with 3,601 points. However, if you compare the gaming performance of these models with each other, you’ll see that the Geforce GTX 1060, which was just slow in synthetic tests, is noticeably faster in most cases.
With maximum detail in Full HD, the GTX 1060 Mobile is 50 percent ahead of Intel’s Arc A370M in The Witcher 3, while it’s 135 percent faster in the X-Plane 11. In FF XV, the two cards are 55% in Geforce’s favor, and in Dota 2, the 1060 Mobile is 73% faster than Intel’s offering. This in turn makes it clear that Intel still has a lot of optimization and driver development ahead of it so that graphics cards can also implement their raw performance shown in synthetic benchmarks in gaming practice.
