Well.. this is not a question or post asking for support.

This is a post, intended to bring this insult against Intel... to Intel's attention.

 

https://www.reddit.com/r/IntelArc/comments/16chzbk/oh_the_irony_xd_bethesda_support_related_to/

 

16 hours ago...

Bethesda just admited that it considers the Intel ARC A770 16GB LE Video Card to be no better then... 

An aged nVidia GTX 1070... and therefore... 

DOES NOT meet the "minimum requirements" for Starfield... and advices Intel ARC A770 Owners to UPGRADE to a better GPU to play the game.

 

SO.

 

Intel, while you're scrambling to release Driver Fixes for this... 

 

WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO TO RESPOND TO THIS INSULT FROM BETHESDA WHO THINKS YOUR VIDEO CARD IS A PIECE OF S**T?!

Personally... if Intel truly is serious about competing in the GPU market...

Then Intel should respond to this insult against them, by informing Bethesda that... if they do not IMMEDIATELY support their ARC, and all future GPU's... then Bethesda will lose the ability to support Intel's CPU's in all their future games. 

Yes, thats right.. I said CPU's.   

What would happen to Bethesda if they're no longer able to produce games that work with Intel CPU's?

Would they truly want to risk that?  Would any pc gaming developer?

The GPU War is a SERIOUS War, Intel... are you TRULY serious, about getting involved?

Bethesda just fired a massive broadside salvo at you.

How are you going to respond????

We... your Early Adopters and supporters of your efforts with this Alchemist ARC Series have taken a chance at supporting and backing you Intel. 

We believed in you with this.

Now with the biggest Game Release of the Year... 

Bethesda just said "F**K You" to you and your efforts.

Now its time for you to put your foot down, and show us WHY we backed you, and its time for you to back US.

THREATEN TO PULL YOUR CPU SUPPORT FROM BETHESDA!

Unless they immediately admit and issue a statement, apologizing to you.. and offer to immediately fix their game to work on your GPU's!!

@Nazrex   If Bethesda does not want to support Arc cards, then that is their decision.   Intel cannot make them support the card.

And, this is not a game of "t i t   for tat".  

You probably do not recall or remember the Hades Canyon AMD driver debacle back almost five years ago, which only hurt the customers.  Bethesda's decision (if your report is correct) only hurts their customers.  It would be strange for a company to take such a position, but it does happen.   If they do not want to support Arc cards, the it is what it is.

your trying to rally intel into some battle with Bethesda also serves no purpose.

 

Now, this is a forum for technical issues and questions.   You can take your battle cry back to reddit or some other community.

I believe in Intel cards and I will support them in the future if they hold their ground against Bethesdas insults. Having drivers a little late is not my greatest concern but being humiliated for the choice I made feels bad. They game seems to be a trap to discredit intel GPUs and intel must find a way to answer with intellegence and power.

If you're using Intel arc graphics card, then do the following. If your game crashes before it even starts, then turn OFF HDR in windows. Setings/system/display/. It worked for me. Please share.
