Intel’s first desktop gaming GPU, the Arc A380, is already launching in China. But the product offers some underwhelming performance, according to an early review.

The gaming results show Intel’s GPU lags behind AMD’s similarly-priced Radeon RX 6400 and even Nvidia’s GTX 1650, a $200 product the company launched three years ago.

For example, on the title PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, the Arc A380 produced an average frames-per-second at 99.4. Meanwhile, the Radeon RX 6400 posted an FPS at 111 while the GTX 1650 was able to achieve an FPS at 125.
