Acer Predator GPU drops to $349

The A770 Predator BiFrost is a unique custom design by Acer team, who have just entered the DIY market with their first Intel Arc Alchemist GPUs. This custom model from Acer is actually one of the very few A770 to offer 16GB VRAM, a feature default to Intel’s own Limited Edition (reference design).
With the Predator model, one get custom design with dual 8-pin power connectors, increased TDP to 250W (+25W) and 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.
This A770 16GB is currently available for $349, which is actually the same price as Intel’s Limited Edition. That’s a 13% or $50 reduction from the original price for this model, still listed by other retailers, including Acer’s own webstore.
Intel is now working around the clock to improve its graphics drivers and overall experience. The company had already released 4 drivers this year, which is more than NVIDIA and AMD.
