Intel has quietly downgraded some of the specifications for its Arc A380 GPU following its official launch in the Chinese market earlier this week. The GPU was originally listed as having a graphics memory speed of 16 Gbps, as evidenced by Google’s cache of Intel’s original Arc A380 Graphics page, but that specification has now been changed to 15.5 Gbps, indicating a reduction in the bandwidth of the GPU from 192 GB/s to 186 GB/s. This appears to be the only difference that Intel has made to the Arc A380’s specs. Intel confirmed in a recent tweet that while its new GPU does support HDMI 2.1, it’s up to manufacturers to decide whether they want to implement it or not in their graphics products.

The Intel Arc A380 GPU supports the full set of DirectX 12 Ultimate features, including hardware accelerated ray tracing, and delivers fluid 1080p gaming experience at 60 frames per second (FPS) and above with popular titles like League of Legends, Moonlight Blade, Naraka: Bladepoint, and PUBG: Battlegrounds.

Intel Xe Matrix Extensions (Intel XMX) AI acceleration engines enable faster content creation and power Intel’s AI-based super sampling technology, XeSS, which arrives this summer.
The Xe Media Engine enables the future of video processing with industry-first hardware AV1 encoding acceleration, also supports HEVC and H.264 encode and decode, and is capable of 8K resolution media processing.

The Xe Display Engine supports up to four 4K 120Hz HDR displays, up to two 8K 60Hz displays, or up to 360Hz for 1080p and 1440p resolutions.

Intel Deep Link technologies harness the power of Intel CPUs and GPUs to unleash new levels of performance and efficiency across a variety of workloads.
