It was revealed earlier this week that certain customers started to have trouble with the Arc A770 Limited Edition. Their 16GB VRAM-equipped cards are designed to operate at 17.5 Gbps, but in many cases, the clock speed was only 16 Gbps. This is despite the fact that the cards themselves have a capacity of 17.5 Gbps. This resulted in the maximum bandwidth being reduced from 560 GB/s to 512 GB/s as a direct consequence.
It turned out that this was a problem that could be fixed, and the remedy for it is now available along with the updated beta graphics driver.
It has been confirmed by Intel that the problem was a “gap on their side,” and the company has said that freshly installed drivers should prevent similar problems from occurring in the future.
Those who have a 16GB Arc A770 and have experienced this issue should update to the most recent driver. In addition to that, it adds ‘Game On’ support for the most recent games.
For those who haven't seen it, we dropped a Beta that resolves this. This was a gap on our side and we put two checks in place in our validation to ensure it doesn't happen again moving forward. Appreciate you reporting it and helping us improve thingshttps://t.co/UPC3p1M0Mn
