The Full Nerd crew kicks off the discussion with talk of Intel’s new Arc graphics for laptops, including how fair it is to compare Intel Arc clocks versus Nvidia GeForce clocks and AMD Radeon clocks.
The discussion also turns to just what makes Arc tick, and whether it will crush GeForce, Radeon and Apple’s M1 in AV1 encoding performance (hint: it probably will).
Finally, Tom tells us about three new “sync” standards being introduced with the Arc GPUs that will smooth out performance for gamers.
There’s all this and more in this special episode of the Full Nerd.
