Earlier today, Intel launched its Arc DCH graphics driver version for Windows. The new driver brings support for the Arc A730M mobile graphics card, which is a 12GB GDDR6 video card and is one of the fastest Arc models, belonging to the enthusiast Arc 7 lineup. The card has been tested and it appears to be performing close to an RTX 3060 mobile or a Radeon RX 6600M (via 金猪升级包 on Weibo).

Alongside that, the driver also adds support for Sniper Elite 5 on other Arc mobile GPUs. You can find the full release notes below:


  • Support for Intel® Arc™ A730M Graphics (Codename Alchemist).
  • Intel® Game On Driver support for Sniper Elite 5* on Intel® Arc A350M, A370M, and A730M Graphics.


  • Sniper Elite 5* may experience an application crash on some Hybrid Graphics system configurations when Windows® “Graphics Performance Preference” option for the application is not set to “High Performance”.
  • Control* and Forza Horizon 5* may experience texture corruption during gameplay.
  • Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War* may experience an application crash during gameplay.
