The Intel Arc A380 graphics card is getting more and more interesting every day after the announcement. Not only does it seem to be no faster than the Radeon RX 6400, but the company also indicates that this adapter will only work with certain CPU lines.

The system requirements for using the A380 have appeared on the Intel website. And in the list of compatible processors, only models of the 10th, 11th and 12th generation Core lines appear. That is, the still very common lines from the seventh to the ninth generation are allegedly out of work. In addition, Intel also indicates the need for a motherboard with support for Resizable BAR technology. True, the company immediately writes that this technology is needed for optimal operation, that is, supposedly, you can do without it. Intel also indicates that this is the initial set of supported CPUs, and later it will be expanded. Yes, AMD processors are not on the list yet. Here we can recall a similar situation with the DG1 video card, but still these are products of completely different classes and with completely different tasks on the market.

Also, Intel’s mention of the Intel Driver and Support Assistant (IDSA) application adds some confusion. It supposedly should determine if the PC is suitable for installing the Arc graphics card. But the source installed this software and it turned out that it does not check anything. At the same time, another Intel document says that the application must be installed after installing the Arc graphics card in order to check if Resizable BAR technology is active. That is, in two different documents, Intel describes a completely different task and sequence of actions for the same program.

Unfortunately, it is not yet possible to test the operation of the video card on officially incompatible PCs, because the video card is not yet available.

Rumor Nvidia Stops Production of GeForce RTX 3080 GPUs After

A steep rise in the value of major cryptocurrencies triggered a cascade of events that resulted in the collapse of prices for new video cards. Many models have fallen in price, including top ones like the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti: with a recommended price of $1,200 (in the US), it is offered by the largest American retailers, Newegg and Amazon, for less than $1,000.

Rumor: Nvidia Stops Production of GeForce RTX 3080 GPUs After GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Drops in Price

A small price gap between the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti and the GeForce RTX 3080 with 12GB of memory has led Nvidia to suspend shipments of GPUs to partners for the latter. So wrote one of the Twitter users familiar with the situation. It is impossible to confirm or refute these words, but in general such a development of events can be considered quite probable.

Up to 8 XE cores and 6 GB of memory

The database of the SiSoftware Sandra test package has fresh data on the upcoming Arc A40 Pro and Arc A50 Pro graphics cards. These are graphics accelerators for workstations that are designed for engineering tasks.

Up to 8 XE cores and 6 GB of memory

The A50 Pro has a full ACM-G11 GPU with 8 Xe cores (128 execution units/1024 FP32 cores), while the A40 Pro is likely to get a stripped-down version of the chip. The clock frequency is 2.45 GHz.

Both cards have 6 GB GDDR6 memory, indicating a 96-bit memory bus. In this regard, both models are similar to the Arc A380 mobile card, which has almost the same configuration.

Thus, the company continues to prepare its entry-level products. When high-performance gaming and professional solutions based on the ACM-G10 GPU will appear, it is not reported. It is also not yet clear whether the Arc A40 Pro and Arc A50 Pro cards will be available in retail or whether they will appear only as part of workstations.

Earlier, Intel introduced its first gaming graphics card for $150.
