MSI introduces its first Intel graphics card
The Arc A380 is now available with the MSI prebuilt system.
The first of the big brands AIB has now joined the Intel Arc bandwagon. The company has just unveiled its new low-profile graphics card based on the Arc Alchemist GPU. Unlike the GUNNIR and ASRock models, this board is based on pure Intel reference specs, that means no factory overclocking and a nominal TDP of 75W. The clock speed remained unchanged and remains at 2000 MHz. MSI’s Arc A380 has 6GB of GDDR6 memory clocked at 15.5Gbps.
Just a few days ago, a rumor surfaced that the first consulting partner was dropping plans to produce Intel Arc GPUs. Although it wasn’t mentioned directly, the story suggested it was MSI. Therefore, the showcase of this new card may be a confirmation that these rumors were inaccurate, or it is only a very small production. For now, this card is only available in a pre-built PC sold exclusively on JD’s Chinese site.
MSI’s pre-built comes in three different configurations, each featuring the same Arc A380 graphics card and Intel H510M or H610M Bomber motherboard. The only difference is the CPU. The cheapest model features the Core i3-10105F, while other configurations get the i5-10400F or i5-12400F. The price ranges from 3599 RMB (532 USD) to 4399 RMB (650 USD)
