Intel is trying its best to attract some attention with the official launch of their Arc A380 “Alchemist” entry-mainstream desktop graphics card in China, priced at USD $153 (approx.)
Taken from Videocardz … GUNNIR announced the availability of its A380 Photon graphics card. This is the first known custom variant of the Arc A380 graphics card, and also, the world’s first custom card based on Xe-HPG architecture.
GUNNING A380 Photon OC is factory-overclocked model with two fans. That’s already an upgrade over reference design which is a single-fan model. The Photon is a dual-slot design equipped with a single 8-pin power connector. It appears to be using an aluminum block as a heatsink sitting above ACM-G11 GPU. The card uses three 2GB GDDR6 modules, each clocked at 15.5 Gbps. Interestingly, that’s slower than reference specs which is 16 Gbps.
In terms of frequency specifications, this version should be much faster than the recommendation A380, which has a base clock of 2000 MHz and also TBP of 75W. GUNNIR’s personalized design has a maximum clock of 2450 MHz and also 92W TBP specifically. It is uncertain exactly how optimum as well as base clock associate to each various other, but the company is asserting it is an OC card, so it ought to have greater clocks regardless.
