Intel Arc A770, A750, A580, A380, A310 prices and specifications revealed by new leak ↺
Although there have been plenty of leaks talking about Intel's Arc GPUs, the company has kept itself in the limelight by making appearances on popular YouTube channels and even showing some first-party benchmarks. Now, sources familiar with the matter have told Wccftech about the tentative price and performance of almost every Intel Arc graphics card due to be launched later this year. The chart also puts to rest rumours about the high-end Arc A780; Intel's supposed answer to the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070.
Instead, one gets the Arc A770, which promises to deliver Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 Ti/AMD Radeon RX 6650 XT levels of performance. It will be available in two variants, one with 8 GB VRAM and the other with 16 GB, with both drawing up to 225W. The US$400 graphics card is the most powerful SKU Intel has to offer, at least for this generation.
As highlighted earlier, the Arc A750 is Intel's answer to the GeForce RTX 3060/Radeon RX 6600. Contrary to previous rumours which suggested that it would feature 12 GB of VRAM, it only has 8 GB. Intel has positioned this as a 1440p gaming card, so the slightly lower VRAM shouldn't be much of a problem.
The mid-range Intel Arc A580 sits between the GeForce RTX 3050/Radeon RX 6500. It packs 8 GB of VRAM, draws up to 175 Watts of power, and is slated to cost around US$250. The extra power headroom could also help it outperform its peers and establish Intel's hegemony in the GPU market.
Below that lie the Arc A380 and Arc A310- two entry-level graphics cards with 6 GB and 4 GB of VRAM, respectively, a TGP of 75 Watts and a sub-US$150 price tag. Initial benchmarks of the Arc A380 painted a grim picture of the graphics card. Although the performance could be fixed with proper drivers, its lacklustre showing doesn't inspire confidence in the Arc A310's prowess.
The above information is sourced from Intel's official marketing material; however, it could be changed at the last minute. Prices, in particular, are not set in stone and are known to fluctuate closer to the launch date, which, at this point, is still a mystery.
