This means that the Intel Arc A550M is much slower than the A730M, but so it should be: it has half of the ACM-G10 GPU cores. The higher-end Arc A770M GPU scored 13244 with the ‘graphics score’ which means it keeps up with NVIDIA’s current GeForce RTX 3070 Laptop GPU (when accompanied by an Intel Core i7-12700H in a gaming laptop in other 3DMark benchmark runs). We don’t know if APO is running here, but the test driver version is 9999 (something that OEMs and system integrators before launching new hardware).
Benchmark results: GeForce RTX 3070 Laptop GPU is outperformed by Intel Arc A770M GPU. In Fire Strike Extreme, Intel’s more advanced Arc A770M mobile GPU tested, it competes favourably with NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 3070 Mobile GPU. A new leak on Intel’s impending Arc A770M mobile GPU, which has been compared to the slower A550M GPU in some 3DMark runs, isn’t particularly significant, but it is something. The 3DMark Fire Strike Extreme (1440p) benchmarks from leaker “@ rogame” provide information on the Intel Arc A770M and A550M GPUs. The less expensive Intel Arc A550M, which has 16 Xe-Cores, achieves a score of 6017 in the 3DMark Time Spy benchmark when using the older 1726 driver, although as VC notes, this benchmark was conducted with Intel APO (Advanced Performance Optimizations) enabled.
