Intel releases Arc A380 video card in China for 146 euros

Intel has released its first desktop graphics card in China. The Arc A380 is an entry-level model and costs 146 euros converted. Intel claims the video card is 25 percent faster than the AMD Radeon RX 6400, which costs about the same.

Intel gives the A380 video card a clock speed of 2000MHz and a tbp of 75W. The video card is equipped with 6GB GDDR6 memory with a speed of 16Gbit/s. In combination with the 96-bit memory bus, this provides 192GB/s of memory bandwidth.

According to Intel, the video card can run games such as Apex Legends, Fortnite and Dota 2 with medium settings in 1080p resolution at more than 60fps. The manufacturer also claims that the video card is 25 percent faster than the Radeon RX 6400. That is the cheapest Radeon video card, which has a suggested retail price of $159. Intel does not show a direct comparison and no independent test has yet been conducted to substantiate this claim.

Last month, Intel announced that the Arc graphics cards will be released first in China, starting with the cheapest A3 models. After that, Intel wants to serve the international market, but when is not yet clear. Higher-end A5 and A7 graphics cards will be available to system builders later in the summer, with retail sales sometime after that. It is not yet clear when the Intel Arc video cards will be available in the Benelux.
