A new entry has appeared in the Geekbench database, showing the performance of an Intel graphics card with the DG2-512EU, the most efficient core in the Arc family. Thanks to it, we even got to know the probable Boost clock speed of the core, which in the case of this engineering sample was kept at 2400 MHz.
What does an Intel graphics card with DG2-512EU show in the OpenCL test?
How can you be sure that the test took place with a non-final version of the Intel Arc A780 graphics card (unofficial name)? This is evidenced by the fact that we are still 4 months away from its premiere, the software does not read the exact name of the card, and the test itself took place on the “Client Platform” test platform from CPU Coffee Lake. This suggests that Intel’s graphics card with DG2-512EU is most likely tested in Intel laboratories or in the company’s secret partner.

It is certain, however, that this graphics card has the flagship DG2 core, offering a whole 512 CU (Compute Units), which “on paper” clocked at 2.4 GHz should provide about 20 TFLOPs of performance. So this is the RTX 3070 level that Intel’s flagship is about to fight. The problem is that in the OpenCL test the model achieved a performance of 85,448 points, i.e. the GeForce RTX 2070 level, but here it is worth remembering that OpenCL is not a benchmark revealing performance in games.
