Intel unveils $150 Arc A380 desktop graphics card, but only in China for now

The accelerator’s graphics processor operates at a frequency of 2000 MHz. The card claims 6 GB of GDDR6 memory with a speed of 16 Gb/s per pin, a 96-bit bus and a bandwidth of 192 GB/s. The power consumption of the novelty is 75 W, so there is no need for an additional power supply.

The company also informed about the performance of new items in games. According to Intel, the Arc A380 is capable of hitting over 60fps in some popular (and less demanding games) at 1080p, but when using medium graphics settings.

According to Intel, the Arc A380 is up to 25% faster than the Radeon RX 6400, AMD’s slowest gaming card in the Radeon RX 6000 series.
