The Acer Predator A770 is again cheaper
Intel board partner responds to AMD.
Last week AMD made a claim that their Radeon graphics cards with 16GB are now available for just $499, noticeably less than NVIDIA GeForce GPUs. However, one must not forget about the third player in the GPU space, Intel. The company does not want to leave any doubt who is the leader in offering the most affordable 16GB GPU option.
Acer Arc A770 Predator BiFrost is one of the few Intel Arc models based on the most powerful SKU with full ACM-G10 GPU and 16GB VRAM. This model has previously been available for just $350, but that sale quickly ended in February. In March, we saw this card listed for $339 only to quickly go back to the original $400 pricing for over a month. It now appears that this old deal is currently back, which undercuts Intel’s own Limited Edition A770 16GB by $10.
Today Acer launched a new sale of their Predator GPU with a price of $339.99. That’s currently the lowest price for any Arc GPU and any modern 16GB graphics card on the market.
The Acer Predator GPU is a custom design with dual 8-pin power connectors, and increased TDP to 250W (+25W) and a higher clock base clock of 2.2 GHz (+100 MHz). The card is a dual-slot design with two fans, a hybrid between open-air (Aero Blade 3D) and blower-type (FrostBlade) cooling design. Furthermore, this card is equipped with a vapor chamber.
The deal is live on Newegg and Amazon, but should Newegg listing be considered it may end in around 20 hours.
