Intel Launches Arc A380 Desktop Graphics Card in China

Posted on

Today Intel launched its first discrete desktop graphics card based on the Intel Xe High Performance Graphics (Xe HPG) microarchitecture. The launch starts by introducing the Intel Arc A380 graphics card, which Intel says addresses the needs of “mainstream gamers and content creators.” It must be mentioned that this product will roll out in China first (this month) with availability rolling out globally during the summer. Intel’s MSRP in China is 1,030 yuan including VAT (~$150). Since China adds VAT at 13% we might infer a US listing price of $134.

Intel provides some interesting performance comparisons, which could help sell these cards. In the small print of the press release you can see that it did some comparative benchmarking in 11 popular games. Intel took a Windows 11 system with an Intel Core i5-12600K, MSI Pro Z690-A WIFI, 32GB (2x16GB) DDR4 @ 3200MHz, MP600 Pro XT 4TB SSD and switched between its new Arc A380 desktop graphics card, and AMD’s Radeon RX 6400. The RX 6400 retails for approximately 15% more than the Arc A380 in China.
