ASRock has released its version of the Intel Arc A380 graphics card – it’s already available in China for $192

ASRock has released its version of the entry-level graphics accelerator based on an Intel chip – the Arc A380 Challenger ITX OC model. This made it the second manufacturer after Gunnir to decide to release their own version of this graphics card. ASUS and MSI, who are also preparing their own versions of the Arc A380, are to be added in the future. No less strange is the fact that ASRock had previously only produced AMD Radeon graphics cards.

ASRock Arc A380 Challenger ITX OC Accelerator is built on a non-reference board equipped with an 8-pin connector for additional power supply. The ACM-G11 graphics chip at the heart of the graphics card has been overclocked at the factory and has a declared frequency of 2250 MHz. The card received 6 GB of GDDR6 memory with support for a 96-bit bus.

Unlike the Gunnir model, the ASRock version of the accelerator is equipped with a single-fan cooling system. The graphics card is made in ITX format and has dimensions of 190 × 124 × 39 mm. The cooling system fan of the novelty has the function of a complete stop when the graphics subsystem is not loaded.

ASRock has equipped its version of the accelerator with four external video outputs: three DisplayPort 2.0 and one HDMI 2.0b. Intel previously stated that its partners can add special PCON chips to their versions of Arc graphics cards if they wish, giving them support for the HDMI 2.1 interface.

The ASRock Arc A380 Challenger ITX OC model has already appeared on the online marketplace JD.com, where it is priced at 1299 yuan (US$192).
