The ASRock Arc A380 Challenger graphics card is a very entry-level variant compared to the GUNNIR Arc A380 Photon which features a dual-fan design. The Arc A380 Challenger comes equipped with a custom PCB design a dual-slot yet only single-fan cooler design. The graphics card's sides feature the "Intel Arc" branding and it has a singular 8-pin connector for power. It features a spiral aluminum heatsink which should be good enough to cool the card.

The Intel Arc A380 graphics card is an entry-level design featuring the full ACM-G11 GPU that utilizes the Alchemist Xe-HPG architecture. It houses the full GPU configuration, making use of 8 Xe-Cores or 1024 ALUs. The graphics card also features 6 GB of GDDR6 memory running at TBP rated at around 92W. The maximum frequency for the card is rated at 2450 MHz which shows that Intel is taking full advantage of TSMC's 6nm process node. The card features a VRAM clock of 15.5 Gbps for 186 GB/s bandwidth running across a 96-bit bus interface.

It is interesting that ASRock is now the only vendor at the moment that is making both Intel and AMD discrete graphics cards. It is likely that more of the prominent AIBs such as MSI, ASUS, and Gigabyte will be adding Arc graphics to their lineup soon as we get closer to the launch of the high-end Arc 7 series graphics cards which are expected to launch this Summer. We'll try to ask ASRock for more information regarding the Arc A380 Challenger graphics card but pricing-wise, it is going to launch close to the 1030 RMB figure than the premium 1299 RMB of the GUNNIR Photon model.

What are your thoughts of Intel's Arc graphics cards so far?
