Sparkle Intel Arc A380 Elf desktop graphics card review - What can you expect from Intel's 129-Euro budget GPU?

Affordable Intel GPU still too expensive? For those who dare to give Intel a chance as desktop GPU manufacturer, there is now the Intel Arc A380. For a relatively low purchase price, you get a small graphics card and 6 GB of VRAM, although you shouldn't expect too much in terms of gaming performance. We took a closer look at the performance of the affordable Intel graphics card, the Sparkle Arc A380 Elf, and analyzed it with numerous benchmarks.

The Intel Arc A380 currently costs 129 Euros (~$141). But the entry-level GPU still offers 6 GB of VRAM, although they are only connected via a small 96-bit storage interface. With the DB2-128, you get a significantly smaller GPU chip than with the more powerful Intel Arc graphics cards.

In this review, we take a closer look at the performance of the Sparkle Arc A380 Elf. Our test unit is short and only minimally longer than the PCIe slot, which makes the graphics card very well suited for small Mini-ITX systems. The model is equipped with an axial fan that provides the short dual-slot graphics card with cool air. Visually, the card is kept in a blue design that is shared by the whole model palette of the Intel graphics cards from Sparkle. However, you can still see and feel the low purchase price of the Sparkle Arc A380 Elf, since the front is completely made from plastic, and there is no back plate.

The efficient Sparkle Arc A380 Elf doesn't need an additional power connection, and all of the power is provided exclusively by the PCIe slot. In terms of external connections, in addition to the HDMI 2.0 port, we also see three DisplayPort 2.0 connections in our test unit. With this, even the affordable Intel model offers slightly better external connection equipment compared to Nvidia. At this point, AMD already offers DisplayPort 2.1 with its RX 7000 models.

Clock Speeds of the Sparkle Arc A380 Elf

In terms of the clock speeds of the graphics chip and VRAM, Sparkle keeps to the specifications from Intel. Under load, we reach a GPU boost of up to 2,400 MHz, although this drops under longer load, leveling out at about 2,150 MHz. The Power Target of the Sparkle Arc A380 Elf is 43 watts and cannot be increased further.

Synthetic Benchmarks

You can already see from the technical specifications that the Sparkle Arc A380 Elf is a simple graphics card for low-budget systems. Correspondingly, the graphics card is also unable to deliver a high 3D performance. Even compared to the Sapphire Nitro+ Radeon RX 5500 XT 8G SE, our test sample remains significantly behind. On the other hand, the Intel graphics card presents a better picture in the Affinity Photo 2 Benchmark. However, there is a relatively large gap compared to the Intel Arc A580, which is currently only filled by some older GPU models.

Professional Applications

We already saw in the tests of the three faster Intel models that Intel has a hard time keeping up with the current competitors. With the significantly slimmed-down graphics chip that is used in the Sparkle Arc A380 Elf, there is also a large performance gap between the Intel graphics cards here. Due to the lower GPU performance of the Arc A380, it would be better to change to another model in the professional arena. Even for the semi-professional arena, the graphics card isn't worth a recommendation.

Gaming Performance

We take a look at the 3D performance of the Sparkle Arc A380 Elf in current and also older games using numerous gaming titles. We see a similar picture as in the synthetic 3DMark benchmarks before. In order to compare the performance of our test unit with the powerful iGPUs from AMD, we also include the AMD Radeon 780M in our test. In most cases, the Sparkle Arc A380 Elf wins this comparison, although there are also some games that you shouldn't expect the Intel Arc to be able to play. Those who plan on buying the Arc A380 should first figure out what games they want to play. Our list of tested games includes a number of older but also of more current games that you can play with the affordable graphics card.

You can find an overview of the performance compared to other graphics cards in our GPU games list.

Emissions - Relatively loud despite the low performance

Noise Emissions

The Sparkle Arc A380 Elf is equipped with a 90-millimeter (~3.5 in) fan. Luckily, the manufacturer didn't forgo a fan stop mode, so the graphics card can run silently during idle operation. Under load, we also register a very noticeable coil whine in addition to the fan noise. In our test, this was even slightly louder under average load than during the stress test. At an average of 38.3 dB(A) while gaming, the noise level was also slightly above the one we determined during the stress test (37.7 dB(A)).

The manufacturer also has some catching up to do in terms of the fan speed control: Under load, the fan keeps revving up unnecessarily high in brief time intervals. This is very annoying in the long run, and you can only remedy this by manually adjusting the fan curve in the Intel driver. Alternatively, you can also set the fan speed at a fixed value.

Temperatures and Power Consumption

The fact that the Sparkle Arc A380 Elf only receives power via the PCI Express slot makes it clear that this is an efficient graphics card. In our comparison, the test system based on the Sparkle Arc A380 Elf is by far the most efficient. Our measurements only show 145 watts as average value during the stress test, even if it reaches about 143 watts during gaming. In our efficiency comparison, this is even sufficient to surpass the Acer Predator BiFrost Arc A750 OC and ASRock Arc A580 Challenger OC.

At no time does our test unit run into any temperature problems. Under load, the GPU and the VRAM temperature only increase to 66 °C (151 °F). So there is still sufficient room at the top to optimize the questionable fan curve in the state of delivery.
