Intel’s first gamer graphics card to launch ‘very soon’

It is just a few weeks until we have a new graphics card provider to choose from.

When purchasing a new graphics card, the choice for decades has been between two brands: Nvidia and AMD (and formerly ATI).

But before long, the chip giant Intel will appear on the field with its first gamer-friendly graphics card: the Intel Arc A770.

In an interview with the German tech media PCGH, the company confirms that the card will be available ‘very soon’, while at the same time giving a number of details about the card technical sheet.

It will be the first high-end product from the company in decades after it briefly tried its hand as a graphics card manufacturer around the turn of the millennium.

This is reflected in the card’s technical bath, from which it appears that 16 gigabytes of GDDR6 memory are offered.

In addition, it is confirmed that the card will be accompanied by a cheaper A750 card with either eight or 16 gigabytes of memory, while the series is rounded off by a budget card called the A380.

Intel’s A380 graphics card has already had an underwhelming time in the Chinese market. But the card has only had 1,024 compute units to work with and some rudimentary drivers so far.

Here, Intel’s Arc A770 with its rumoured 4,096 computing units and more mature software should be able to do a better job.
