Intel shares Arc mode with partners, top model A770 under 400 euros

Wccftech has an official image of Intel I have got, showing the position of the upcoming Arc desktop GPUs versus competitors. Power consumption, memory amount, and intended price range are also displayed. Intel sent the image to a number of the largest Taiwanese partners, so we can assume that the information is correct.

The top model in the series will be the A770, with a power consumption of 225 watts, and available with either 8 or 16 GB of memory. Intel puts the A770 below Nvidia’s RTX 3060 Ti and AMD’s 6650 XT, both of which have 8GB of memory and also consume slightly less power with 200 and 180 watts. The A770 should cost between 350 and 399 euros.

In second place is the A750, which is just below the RTX 3060 and Radeon 6600. The A750 has 8GB of memory, and also consumes up to 225W. TDPs of 3060 and 6600 are much lower here with 170 and 132 watts of the Intel card. In terms of price, the A750 is about 300 euros.

A step down in the lineup is the Arc A580, also with 8GB. This card should deliver performance similar to that of Nvidia’s RTX 3050. The RTX 3050 is also less than 175 watts than Intel’s at 130 watts (oddly missing in the photo). The value of the msrp A580 ranges from 200 to 250 euros.

Then we have the A380 and the A310 at the bottom, compared to the GTX 1650 and GTX 1050 Ti respectively. Incidentally, the GTX 1050 Ti is actually from 2016, although the GPU makers still dared ask €200-350 for it. The A380 has 6 GB of memory, and it is assumed that it will cost around 125 euros. With 4 GB, the A310 will be less than 100 euros. Both cards are 75W and therefore can be fully powered by the motherboard.

It remains to be seen if this image can actually be used in the end. By the time Intel releases Arc cards, Nvidia and AMD will already be in stores with RTX 4000 and RX7000 GPUs. If they come out before that time, and indeed for the listed prices, Nvidia in particular will have to put its cards on sale.
