Gunnir has released the Arc A770 Photon 16G OC graphics card, which comes with 16GB of GDDR6 memory. The Chinese manufacturer now has six versions of the graphics accelerator from the Intel Arc A7 series in its range – more than anyone else.
Judging by the comments on the Chinese retailer’s website where you can buy the specified graphics card, the Gunnir Arc A770 Photon 16G OC has been on sale since last month. Intel initially unveiled two versions of the Arc A770, one with 8GB of GDDR6 memory and one with 16GB of memory. The 16 GB version was produced exclusively by Intel itself as a limited edition reference variant for some time. Then Acer introduced its own version of a card with such storage capacity, which released the BiFrost model. Now Gunnir has joined this modest list of manufacturers.
The Gunnir Arc A770 Photon 16G OC looks the same as the 8GB variant that the same manufacturer released a few months ago. The card is equipped with two 8-pin power connectors, received a cooling system with three fans, and the thickness of the accelerator is a little more than two expansion slots. The dimensions of the graphics card are 300 × 118.5 × 50 mm.
The Gunnir Arc A770 Photon 16G OC is based on the ACM G10 GPU with 32 Xe cores. The chip is factory overclocked. It claims a frequency of 2.4 GHz, which is 14.3% higher than the number given for the Arc A770 reference version. Strangely, Gunnir’s version uses slower GDDR6 memory, running at 16Gb/s per pin. In comparison, Intel’s Limited Edition reference version and Acer’s BiFrost variant use memory at 17.5 Gbps per pin.
The cost of Gunnir Arc A770 Photon 16G OC on Chinese online marketplaces varies from 3199-3299 yuan (about 470-490 dollars).
