Intel launches its first Arc graphics card for desktop computers

Today, Intel introduces the Arc A380, its first desktop graphics card based on the Xe-HPG architecture. This model features 8 Xe-Cores, which is the full ACM-G11 GPU configuration.

The A380 will come with a base clock of 2000 MHz and a TDP of 75 W by default. It comes with 6GB GDDR6 memory clocked at 16Gbps. Therefore, compared to the ACM-G11 mobile GPUs, the desktop variant boasts a full 96-bit memory bus and higher memory bandwidth of 192 GB/s.

There’s no doubt that the A380 is an entry-level GPU, but still advertised as capable of gaming. Intel has provided a set of gaming benchmarks claiming that gaming at 1080p at 60 FPS at medium settings is possible in popular (hence less demanding) titles.

Officially, the Arc A380 is priced at 1030 yuan including VAT (there’s no official MSRP for other regions, but it’s around 153 USD). Intel claims the Arc A380 is up to 25% faster than the Radeon RX 6400, which is AMD’s slowest “gaming” graphics card.
