Intel’s first Arc A380 graphics card custom design is finally available in China and is currently listed for 3999 RMB or over US $ 500. The price includes VAT, but far exceeds the 1030RMBMSRP disclosed for the Chinese market.
Intel Arc A380’s first custom-designed graphics card sells for over $ 500 in China, PCB and ACM-G11 GPU get close-up shots
GUNNIR has become a very popular graphics card maker in the OEM and pre-built PC segments of the Asia Pacific region. GUNNIRArc A380 Photon, the first custom DG2 graphics card with 6GB of GDDR6 memory and full ACM-G11 GPU, is back, one of the first products to offer custom flavors for DG1 graphics cards in custom flavors. From Intel. The first close-up shot of the graphics card has been published by MyDrivers.

The Intel Arc A380 graphics card has an entry-level design with a complete ACM-G11 GPU utilizing the Alchemist Xe-HPG architecture. Accommodates a complete GPU configuration with 8 Xe cores or 1024 ALUs. The graphics card also has 6GB of GDDR6 memory running at a TBP rating of about 92W. The maximum frequency of the card is rated at 2450MHz, indicating that Intel is taking full advantage of TSMC’s 6nm process node. The GUNNIR custom model features a 15.5 Gbps VRAM clock with 186 GB / s bandwidth. Memory speed has been quietly updated by Intel for reference design.
Interestingly, this card utilizes a “K4ZA F325BM-HC16” memory die that runs at 16 Gbps, but Intel seems to have lowered the memory spec. Probably to save power that doesn’t make sense for desktop variants. The custom variant already has a higher TBP of 92W and has an 8-pin connector, so it’s okay to run memory at 16Gbps speeds. However, even board partners may have replaced the memory clock in favor of the GPU clock.

It’s unclear if the card uses a custom PCB or a reference design, but it comes with a single 8-pin power connector for booting and houses a 2 + 1 phase VRM design. There is an “Intel Arc” logo on the side of the shroud, and the GUNNIR Photon logo that lights up with LED lighting makes it even more luxurious even with entry-level cards.

As for the graphics card itself, the GUNNIR Arc A380 Photon comes in a standard box package with the Intel Arc 3, XeSS, and DirectX 12 Ultimate marketing logos. The graphics card itself has a dual slot and dual fan design that houses an aluminum heatsink underneath. The shroud and backplate extend beyond the PCB, in addition to a nice dual-tone black and gray color theme. There is one 6mm nickel plated copper heat pipe that goes through the heat sink.
The back plate also has blue and black color trim to improve the look of the card. Display outputs include 3 DisplayPorts and 1 HDMI output. The fan has two 90mm designs and the card size is 222 x 114 x 42mm.
The reference Intel Arc A380 graphics card has also been officially announced for the Chinese market. This card features a dual slot and single fan design. Compared to the GUNNIR variant that rocks the overclocked design, the reference model has a clock speed of 2000 MHz and a TBP of 75 W, eliminating the need for an external power connector. Graphics cards will be shipped this summer in a variety of pre-built graphics from major manufacturers such as ASUS, MSI, Gigabyte and ACER, and will also be available in DIY custom flavors such as the GUNNIR model above.
The GUNNIR Arc A380 Photon 6 GB graphics card has been officially announced, but it’s a GPU product for the Asian market only, with other manufacturers planning to bring the Arc A380 and other high-end lineups to market by the end of summer. is. Other areas. The graphics card was intended to boot near the 1030 RMB MSRP, but it’s not near anywhere. In addition, this card is already listed as “sold out” on JD.com. Intel has touted the card to offer a 25% better price-to-performance ratio (original) compared to MSRP’s AMD Radeon RX 6400, but this graphic is more than three times MSRP’s. The overall points on the card will be invalid.
