Arc A380 Reviews to Release Tomorrow After Intel’s Supposed Ban

Arc A380 Reviews to Release Tomorrow After Intel’s Supposed Ban

The Arc A380 is part of Intel’s Arc Alchemist series for desktop platforms. It became available exclusively in China just last week. GUNNIR also announced a custom Arc A380 Photon card, and so far, tech enthusiasts are impressed with it.   

Twitter user @momomo_us claims reviews for the official Arc A380 will be dropping tomorrow. 

Reportedly, Intel has set an official ban as there has been no leaked content regarding the Arc desktop GPU. Intel has only posted the official Quick Start Guide for the Arc series on its website. 

The A380 is an entry-level GPU model. The custom GUNNIR card is factory-overclocked with a boost clock of 2450 MHz. However, Intel only lists a base clock of 2000 MHz on the official site.  

The custom card also has an increased TDP of 92W from 75W, which explains the external power connector.
