GUNNIR has launched the Intel Arc A380 Photon 6G OC, one of the very first custom graphics cards to leverage Intel’s new Arc Alchemist architecture and GPUs. Available in China, this is an entry-level option that features the ACM-G11 silicon (6 nm) and counts eight Xe cores, eight ray tracing units, 6 GB of GDDR6 memory (15.5 Gbps), 4 MB of L2 cache, and a 2,450 MHz boost clock among its specifications, enabling FP32 performance of up to 5 TFLOPs—a metric that would put it closely in line with competing graphics cards such as NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 1660. GUNNIR hasn’t confirmed the pricing of its 92-watt TBP Intel Arc A380 Photon 6G OC yet (the Arc A380’s MSRP is reportedly ~$150), but the company has already teased an upcoming flagship model that will feature a triple-fan cooler.
Gunnir has equipped the Arc A380 Photon 6GB OC with a 2+1-phase power delivery subsystem. The graphics card carries a 92W TBP (total board power) rating. Hence, it only needs a single 8-pin PCIe power connector, which Gunnir has placed on the side of the shroud, similar to Nvidia’s placement of the power connector on its Founders Edition models. As for display outputs, the Arc A380 Photon 6GB OC supplies users with three DisplayPort outputs and one HDMI 2.0 port.
