Acer PC with A380 GPU
Acer joins the list of OEMs offering Intel Arc GPUs.
The N50-640 is a prebuilt gaming PC featuring Intel’s latest 12th Gen Core CPU and low-end to mid-range GPUs, such as GTX 1650 or RTX 3060. It appears that Acer is now offering the first system with Arc GPU, namely the A380. This is thus far the only desktop GPU that Intel has green lighted for sales outside China.
Acer NITRO PC has been listed by French retailer called Boulanger. It appears to be the first listing in Europe featuring this particular configuration, but it is first for a good reason. This PC will not ship till October 8th, assuming that the availability date is correct on the product page. This means that the offer is essentially a preorder page 2 months in advance.
This PC is equipped with Core i5-12400F CPU, 16GB DDR4 memory and 500GB of SSD storage. It comes at a relatively high price of 949 EUR. Interestingly, the retailer offers a nearly identical system with RTX 3060 for just 50 EUR more, the only difference being the HDD and half the memory storage. The 16GB/SSD variant of RTX 3060 system cost 1500 EUR, which is much more than it should cost.
Intel A310 by MSI
It is also worth reporting that MSI PRO DP130 system is now officially listed as well. This is the first mention by any board partner of Arc A310 GPU, Intel’s slowest card based on DG2/Alchemist architecture. Although not pictured, this GPU is very likely to look the same as the A380 LP that was confirmed by MSI yesterday. The official specs of A310 are not know yet, but they are rumored to be either 4 or 6 Xe-Cores. MSI is not confirming the memory configuration here, but it is probably 64-bit and up to 4GB of capacity.
