It’s official, the Intel Arc A380 went on sale, although, let’s remember, this is an exclusive model for the asian marketso its lagging, geo-limiting, and performance killed all the “hype” we could expect from an Intel GPU.
Initially only available for pre-assembled computers, the assembler GUNNIR was the first to sell one of these graphics cards to the masses, we’re talking about the GUNNIR Arc A380 Photonwhich is on sale for 1299 RMB, 188 euros / $193 in exchange, a higher price compared to the advertised recommended price of 1030 RMB (149 € / $153).
For this price, this GPU comes with the graphics chip ACM-G11 @6nm from TSMC using 8 Xe cores, giving a total of 1024 heartswhich in this case reach an overclocked frequency of 2450MHz. The chip is attached to 6 GB of GDDR6 memory with a memory interface of 96 bit and an energy consumption of 75W. Despite this, it comes with a PCIe slot of 8 pins for your food.
As far as its performance is concerned, it is practically not able to match a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650Hovering GPU 200 eurosand that in some games even double your performance. Thus, the Intel Arc A380 not that this is a recommended GPUbecause it still has several months to show its real performance, in addition to not presenting such erratic performance according to the games.
