Arc A770 Question

I know the Arc A770 states you need a 10th gen Intel CPU, but if we have a 9th gen platform that has resizable bar support it should work decently right?  I'm currently running a Nvidia Geforce GTX 1060 and with the recent $50 price drop on the ASRock A770 it is really tempting so I can play games at a decent speed.

Hello ShaunMcCloud,

 

Thank you for posting on the Intel️® communities. We understand that you are looking for information about the compatibility of the Intel® Arc™ A770.

 

You are correct, and we recommend using Intel® Arc™ A-Series Graphics with 10th-generation processors or higher for optimal performance. However, Additional platforms/motherboards with Resizable BAR / Smart Access Memory enabled may also support Intel® Arc™ A-Series graphics.

 

Best regards,

Hello ShaunMcCloud,


Before closing the thread, we want to make a last comment adding that the primary requirement to get the best performance on Arc Graphics is a platform (motherboard + processor) that supports Resizable BAR. In case you are using a motherboard with 9th gen, the card should work, but performance results will be severely affected due to lack of Resizable BAR.


If you need any additional information, submit a new question since this thread will no longer be monitored.


Best regards.
