    Intel Arc graphics card drivers will integrate OC tools

    VP of graphics says the tools will enable enthusiasts to "push the hardware to the limit".

    Intel's drivers are my biggest area of concern regarding getting an Intel GPU so here's hoping they have done something about it. For all people's issues with AMD/Nvidia drivers at least they feel well supported. I've never felt the same about intel where they practically feel stuck in time from release with only minor fixes.

    Thats actually a great point, I guess time will tell but I have a feeling you could be right.

    Yeah I must say I share that concern. You would think a company with Intel's resources would allocate enough of them to sorting out their drivers, but in my experience that doesn't appear to be the case with their current products. I've had quite a few problems up to and including BSODs.

    Here's hoping a major push into discrete GPUs is enough of a motive to step up their game in the driver department. After all, GPU drivers are fantastically complex pieces of software. Neglecting them could make an otherwise attractive GPU quite worthless.

    We're stuck between Nvdia and AMD trying to fix prices (Intel wouldn't be any better if they had any say) and gambling on Intel actual supporting a product, "if" they can actually create a competive product.

    Which devil do you go with?

    Whilst they're ostensibly limited by fab capacity, AMD are likely concentrating on the more profitable CPU silicon at the moment, so volume-wise aren't providing much competition for Nvidia.

    That's somewhat unique to AMD though as they share fab capacity between CPU and GPU, Nvidia just have to concentrate on their GPUs, and Intel will be producing GPUs at TSMC so again, not competing for capacity internally.

    well if you want a 3090 or a 6900XT...

    For the performance vs price... then the 6900XT is a bargain in comparison to 3090...

    You only get a very little boost over the 6900XT in some situations... and the 6900XT is like 30% cheaper...

    I mean if my game runs with all on at 150 FPS or 140FPS or something down those lines... am not sure that the little extra is worth the 30% more value.

    At current rate it is very easy to buy both Nvidia and AMD cards where I live and the higher end brands as well.

    What are prices like where you live now? Any signs of normality?
