The First Custom Intel Desktop GPU Is Here, and It Looks… Boring

Chinese graphics card maker Gunnir has unveiled the first third-party custom desktop GPU from Intel’s new Arc Alchemist lineup, namely the Arc A380 Photon 6GB OC. Gunnir’s press release states that Intel has officially launched the Arc A3 series in China, lining up with earlier reports that A3 GPUs would only be available to begin with.

So, does the A380 Photon impress? Well, we have yet to see specific benchmarks, but initial impressions are frankly not good considering the current level of competition in the desktop GPU market. The Arc A380 is an entry-level graphics card, currently believed to have similar performance to Nvidia’s GTX 1650 Super, and Gunnir’s Photon model tweaks the benchmark spec a bit, but not enough to make it interesting.
