ASRock's Arc A380 "Alchemist" graphics card is now available for purchase on US retailer Newegg for USD $139.99. The card is sold and shipped by Newegg from the US-based warehouses, and isn't a marketplace listing that imports them from foreign retailers. The ASRock A380 Challenger is a close-to-reference card that runs the A380 at slightly overclocked speeds, draws power from a single 8-pin PCIe power connector, and uses a simple aluminium monoblock fan-heatsink to cool the GPU. Based on the Xe-HPG graphics architecture, the Arc A380 features 1,024 unified shaders, meets DirectX 12 Ultimate API specs (which includes ray tracing), and comes with readiness for the XeSS performance enhancement. The card has 6 GB of GDDR6 memory across a 96-bit memory bus.

Thats a Expensive Paperweight. No Thank You.
Will Consider Intel GPU after 3 or 5 Gen of Driver Optimizations & Hardware iterations.

(...) draws power from a single 8-pin PCIe power connector, and uses a simple aluminium monoblock fan-heatsink to cool the GPU (...)
This sequence does not add-up. And I know this has been battered on the forum, but still, the "requires connector rated to 150W, has simple heatsink with 75W-ish TDP" does not add a lot of credibility to whatever design guidelines Intel is sharing with the AIBs.

Possibly the PCI connector might be needed despite the 75W TDP so that power spikes can be handled without people blowing things out of proportion like they did with the RX480, and for overclockability margin.

Too bad Intel never has a straight answer regarding overclocking and its warranty, especially if the part was "made for enthusiasts". :laugh:
But I'd argue a good power control IC+stages and BIOS would handle spikes better than just adding a higher-rated connector hoping the rest of the board just takes it like a champ.

If this were available in LP, I might be interested at that price point. After more of the driver bugs are worked out. Plenty of Ryzen chips that don't have integrated video that just need simple video out for office work, a good, low cost alternative would be desired.

Hi,
Seems pretty clear since they ended the oc warranty program
You toast it and no warranty
Now how does Intel know you oc'ed it to death ?
Never add to much information to give that away and just say it died on startup one morning :laugh:

Collectors item
Could be hung on wall of shame :D

Next to my ek monoblocks

This might be the cheapest AV1 capable GPU on the market. Does that sound correct?

It might be yeah. I'm not sure if the DG1 that was in asus pre-builts had it. Would love to know, but not that it matters. Those piggy back booted off the vbios on the mobo and not stand alone. I could be confusing that with the early samples though so salt to taste.

At least the price is decent. Don't forget that the A380 has a larger die size than the 6500 XT.

If someone wants today a discreet new VGA for lite-gaming with at least 4GB and still supported with "game ready" drivers and warranty is crucial to him, what can he buy at ≤$150 today?
If the options are similar in USA like in Europe, it has essentially 2 alternative options:
Either pay $10 more for a similar brand/model RX6400 4GB
or pay $10 less for a similar brand/model RX 550 4GB
Nvidia has nothing below $150 with these criteria.

The joke is I want this for my Plex server and/or my streaming PC for it's encode/decode. But I want them to make it work perfectly at both of those things first, so I'll wait till it's old news and maybe, just maybe, Nvidia or AMD will have made something better on a budget.

If you're just after AV1 decoding, then a cheap TV box for 20-30$ will be far cheaper option.
