Arc A730M graphics in 3DMark Time Spy benchmark – faster than RTX 3070 laptop

The graphics of the Intel Arc A730M notebook are seen in the 3DMark Time Spy benchmark and seem to be faster than the GeForce RTX 3070 mobile.

Famous Weibo Revealer Golden Pig Upgrade Time Spy test score has released more than 10,000 new Arc Alchemist mobile graphics, or more precisely Arc A730M, which uses the reduced ACM G10 chip. This separate graphic has 24 Xe cores while the full chip offers 32 Xe cores.

This test was performed on Chinese Mechanike laptop with Intel Alder Lake 12th generation processor, Core i7 12700H with 14 cores.

Based on the result, the A730M managed to record a 10107 graphics score, which is faster than the GeForce RTX 3070 in the Notebookcheck ranking (9462 points). The A730M actually performs better than some RTX 3070 Ti models (with a power output of less than 115 watts).

It should be noted that Intel offers optimizations for Arc graphics in benchmarks such as 3DMark. Unfortunately, these optimizations prevent us from using the 3DMark score to accurately compare performance with other mobile chips. The Arc A730M has recently been used in some laptops but only in the Chinese market. This model uses 12 GB of memory, 192-bit bus and thermal power up to 120 watts. The full ACM G10 chip will be used in the A770M model, which will have a power of up to 150 watts.

Mechanike has also released 3DMark Fire Strike A730M graphics patches, in which case we see performance between the GeForce RTX 3060 and the GeForce RTX 3070 laptop.
