Intel Arc A380 tested
It is now a month since the official introduction of Intel Arc A380 GPUs in China.
Intel has been reluctant to provide samples to the press, so the vast majority, if not all of these reviews are based on independently acquired samples. Although it is now weeks since Intel revealed the first custom model known as GUNNIR Photon OC, there are no other custom models available, in fact there is not even a reference design. That said, all of these reviews are based on the same model, which is factory-overclocked.
It should be noted that there were reviews of Arc A380 GPUs available from Chinese media sites and content creators for at least 3 weeks now, but the US and European press have only just started receiving shipments of these cards. The self-imposed review embargo by three major European media outlets is a good reason for this roundup.
