LAST FEW DAYS to grab a Limited GN CyberSkeleton shirt! https://store.gamersnexus.net/products/limited-edition-foil-skeletal-cotton-t-shirt-with-pc-component-design - this helps directly fund the staff time to work on our videos, testing, and analysis AND gets you something awesome in return!
Intel's Arc GPU driver software is completely and utterly broken. Although the drivers work 'fine' for some gaming, as we showed in our initial review, the actual driver suite is a buggy and embarrassing mess that Intel should be afraid to even upload for use. Many of its features, like Intel Smooth Sync (which we tested here) and Intel Arc Control cause artifacting, flickering, crashes, or are just otherwise useless. In this video, we're reviewing the Intel Arc GPUs again, but this time for software rather than hardware. NVIDIA and AMD have nothing to be afraid of on this front (so far).
