If you thought gaming on an Intel Arc laptop would be awful, think again

Intel Arc is the new kid on the block for dedicated graphics and while I’ve been pleased with the first-gen so far, it’s clear there’s still plenty to do in order to close the gap to NVIDIA and AMD. But for now, I’m all-in on the underdog, I want Intel to succeed and frankly, the performance has never been that bad. Despite what opinions on the internet might want you to believe. 

That extends to laptops, too. Before Christmas, I upgraded to the Acer Swift X 16. This pairs an Intel Core i7-1260P CPU with an Arc A370M 4GB dedicated GPU. This isn’t a gaming laptop by any stretch, but it has dedicated graphics so naturally, I’m going to try and game on it.
