Intel’s Arc A380 has launched in China. Arc A380 is Intel’s entry-level graphics card that utilizes the chipmaker’s Xe-HPG architecture. The Graphics card has eight Xe cores, eight ray tracing units, and 4MB of L2 cache. The Arc A380 Photon 6GB OC features a 2,450 MHz boost clock.
Gunnir, a Chinese graphics card manufacturer, has introduced the Arc A380 Photon 6GB OC, one of the first custom graphics cards based on Intel’s Arc Alchemist series. The Arc A380, on the other hand, faces a difficult path ahead because Intel’s product must compete with the top graphics cards on the market. The Arc A380 is Intel’s entry-level graphics card, powered by the chipmaker’s Xe-HPG architecture and the ACM-G11 hardware. The ACM-G11 is manufactured by TSMC on the foundry’s 6nm manufacturing node for Intel. The Arc A380 is equipped with eight Xe cores, eight ray tracing units, and four megabytes of L2 cache. Each Xe core may hold up to 128 ALUs, giving the Arc A380 a total of 1,024 ALUs.
The Arc A380 Photon 6GB OC has a boost clock of 2,450 MHz. However, the model name implies that it comes with a factory overlock, therefore the Arc A380’s reference boost clock speed could be lower. In any case, the Arc A380 Photon 6GB OC has FP32 performance of up to 5 TFLOPs. That puts the graphics card in the same league as Nvidia’s GeForce GTX 1660, which also provides 5 TFLOPs of FP32 performance.
Nonetheless, first benchmarks reveal that the Arc A380 is on par with the GeForce GTX 1650 Super.
