APISAK has shared the purported specifications for one of Intel’s upcoming Arc graphics cards, the A380. According to the leaker, this card will feature clocks of up to 2.45 GHz and 6 GB of GDDR6 memory. APISAK also claims that the performance of the A380 can be compared to that of the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 SUPER, which features a boost clock of 1.725 GHz and 4 GB of GDDR6.

The leak seems to confirm previous reports of Intel adopting a simple naming scheme for its Arc graphics cards. All of the models will apparently start with the first letter of the generation’s code name (“A” for Alchemist, in this case), followed by a series of numbers that correlate with the performance of the card.

  1. Maybe it’s just me but at this point it seems like they should be setting their sites a little higher than the 2nd lowest NV tier card that was originally [URL=’https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GeForce_16_series’]released[/URL] in November 2019.

  2. Don’t worry, they have a product map going out 5 years. Maybe by then they can compete with a 2070?

    I was never terribly excited by Intel getting in the race – interested, for sure, but not really excited. This is definitely playing down to my expectations.

    not sure if you are serious but this is one of the lower end ones, there are better ones already leaked

    Intel’s new flagship Arc Alchemist GPU is expected to pack 512 Execution Units and 4096 Shading Units, joined by 16GB of GDDR6 memory on a 256-bit memory bus and GPU clocks of around 2.2GHz to 2.5GHz and a 225-250W TDP

    I’ll believe it when I see it.

    Pretty sure we had a story on that one.

    Edit: When that article I didn’t make it to the very bottom where the specs were listed. I admit I’ve become somewhat doubtful with all these Arc stories spec-wise. Like [USER=96]@Brian_B[/USER], I’ll believe it when I see it. I really hope for the best for them but it’s been such an incredibly slow process it hasn’t done much to bolster my confidence in them. From OEM exclusive cards to cards that are basically versions of what is somewhat included on their CPU wafers it’s been a bizarre rollout of what has actually made it into the wild. On the flip I do seem to remember we’ve also had some mention of that card (4096 Shading Units) a few other times as well with it compared to around a 3060/3070 so here’s hoping it becomes real. For the right price that will be the card to get things going for them in the enthusiast market.

  6. Part of me hopes that they are competitive when they finally release but I don’t see it. What I do see is them targeting the enterprise space and laptop devices and potentially being competitive there. But for DIY consumers or gamers I just don’t see them holding a candle to Nvidia or AMD.

    The Chinese company making video cards has a better chance… think of all the IP that they stole to make it. A combined AMD Nvidia card could be good.

    Well, this is where they have to start!

    In general, IGPs are ‘good enough’ for anyone not running AAA-games / competitive games and/or not needing the kind of compute grunt that discrete GPUs can bring. Intel’s Quicksync video transcoder is also class-leading in the consumer space and is the most widely supported by software.

    The needle Intel is moving with their initial spread of discrete GPUs seems (and needs) to be from ‘laughable’ to ‘worth supporting’ by game and content creation developers.

  9. I’d look at one of these if they became available for my office PC. Don’t need anything really high end there.

  10. You have to start somewhere.

    Intel wasn’t about to release a 3090 killer out of the gate, but maybe some day they will add some pressure to the more enthusiast oriented GPU segment.

    I have a machine that gets used for just office stuff. It has an old Quadro 2000 in it :p

    Research on the subject suggests that for a truly competitive market to emerge there needs to be at least 3-5 players. The GPU market has been a duopoly for far too long. I think that the addition of Intel can only be a positive development.

    That doesn’t mean I am about to rush out and buy one anytime soon, but they will definitely find a market.

    Maybe some day they will reach the level where I am interested.

    Is it affordable and in stock?

    This question is becoming/has become the new “But can it run Crysis?”.
